|Landscape Done Right||July 11 th, 2019|
Landscapes are dynamic creations and are always changing. Some plants grow larger, some are added along the way, some die, and even trees may be lost in storms. Over the years, a landscape can change radically from its original look.
How you and your family use the landscape also changes over time; kids grow up and no longer need a play area. As gardeners grow older, they often have to change a landscape to make it less labor intensive.
It is common to move into a house that already has an existing landscape. What worked for the previous owners, however, may not work well at all for your family. As a result, you need to redesign the landscape to more closely match your needs.
Now is a great time to study your landscape and develop plans for needed changes. Spend the summer refining your ideas, and you will be ready for the prime planting season for trees, shrubs, and ground covers (late October).
If you need any help developing a design for your yard, please do not hesitate to call us for a free consultation. It is nice to add to the value of your property and help the environment, but the most important benefit of landscaping is the personal enjoyment it brings to outdoor living. Go ahead and indulge your love of gardening. It will pay off in many ways in the years to come!
