18 Apr Spring and Your Landscape
As spring advances and signs of new life appear, you can prepare your landscape, lawn and garden areas for the season.
In order to keep your outdoor spaces looking beautiful it is best to make a good plan. It is tempting to go out and purchase a variety of plants to plant anywhere you have a place. This is not a good idea since it can detract and reflect a confused look. Developing a landscape design will map out where to add your new plants. As you develop your plan consider important factors like plant height, size, and color to add interest and depth.
You must consider the climate of your area before adding any new plants. For example, a plant that needs lots of sunlight will not thrive in your backyard under the big oak tree, and so on. Be sure to research how to care for the new garden plants. For example, some bulbs need to be planted in a particular time before spring. If they are planted too early, they will die in the ground.
Some plants can be high maintenance and others require little or hardly any care throughout the season. If you are a busy working professional without much time to spare and do not want to dedicate your weekends to your yard, it may be a wise to consider hiring a landscape and lawn company. A professional landscape firm will develop the landscape design tailored to your budget, present the garden ideas including, walkways, paver brick driveways, patios, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, ponds, 4 season color gardens, vegetable gardens, and caring for your entire property – from lawn fertilization to weeding, from pruning to mulch. When you hire a full service professional landscape design firm, you truly receive the gift of time to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.
