Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

Here's What A Landscaping Company Should Be Able To Do For You

by Addison Washington

Are you in the market for a new landscaping business to service your property? Here are a few things that the company you decide to hire should be able to do for you:

Garden Creation and Maintenance

One important service the landscaping company you choose to work with should be able to provide is garden creation and maintenance. You just have to show them where you'd like your new garden located and what you want to grow in the garden. From there, your landscaper should create a unique design that optimizes conditions for the types of plants or veggies that you want to grow.

They will then actually create the garden, plant your foliage and/or vegetables, and ensure that the soil is properly fertilized. They will recommend a maintenance plan and then manage the plan that you decide to go with when all is said and done.

Tree and Foliage Recommendations

Your new landscaper should also be able to recommend tree and foliage options for your property based on things such as your year-round weather, the type of ground you're working with, and the kind of landscape design you are trying to achieve. If you want to grow food, they can recommend fruit trees that can thrive in your specific location and under the type of care that you are able and willing to provide as time goes on. They can also help you determine what types of hedges to install for privacy and what kinds of flowers will bloom the best when springtime comes around.

Disease Prevention and Treatment

It is also important that your new landscaper is able to incorporate disease prevention methods when caring for your lawn and gardens so that you don't end up with brown grass, dying flowers, and limp-looking trees. No matter how effective prevention is, sometimes it is not enough to fight off disease. If this becomes the case on your property, your landscaper should have the knowledge and resources necessary to treat the disease and get your property looking healthy again.

Property Cleanup and Refuse Hauling

There is bound to be refuse left behind after your foliage is pruned and your trees are trimmed on a landscape maintenance day. Instead of having to deal with the piles of dead leaves, weeds, and trimmings, your landscaper should mulch the debris so that it can be reused in your gardens or haul the debris away in their trailer so that it is no longer your problem.
