The word “horticulture” may sound a bit fancy if you’re just looking for a basic lawn service in your area. But the fact is, there is a science to any landscaping service worth its salt. Many homes use a much broader variety of plants and flowers than in the past, and there is an art to the design, production and maintenance of plants in today’s world. Their foliage is often more diverse than they realize, including annual and perennial species, herbs, fruits and veggies, as well as plants and bushes, all competing for limited resources.
Some plants need more cultivating than others. An experienced horticulture expert will be able to help homeowners understand the array of options that can be used in their space for the landscape of their dreams.
The main reason that horticultural expertise matters is that not all plant and land care can be handled by your average landscaping company. While landscaping and horticulture have overlapping elements and are often included under the same umbrella, they are not the same industries. Many landscaping services are primarily concerned with the visual appeal – ie., appearance – of their clients’ plants and lawns.
However, horticultural experts have a breadth of knowledge that not every business is going to provide. Because they can monitor soil health and select plant species to match the environment, their knowledge helps protect and preserve what you have to create visually appealing gardens – or upgrade and beautify an outdated one. Their experience will extend to the growth and development of plants you may not have considered that could brighten your property, as well as recommendations on what will thrive in the future.
Whether you’re just looking for a weekly lawn service or something more, you want someone who can provide an amazing job keeping your property looking great year round. Components of a landscaping service with horticulture expertise often include weekly maintenance, lawn treatments and other elements of a typical landscaping company. But other services can include:
Timing is an enormous part of horticulture. A horticulturist possesses an understanding of when to plant, water and otherwise care for each element of your garden. This is why a comprehensive landscaping service can often provide some unexpected benefits. It will be able to offer the expertise to tailor a program to fit any property requirements for a broad range of homes and a diversity of tastes and styles. There are many potential areas of expertise that may come in handy. Along with a knowledgeable horticulturist, you may need an arborist to discuss tree placement one week and a plant health care expert the next to review your options as spring approaches.
