Rebecca, our landscape designer, responds to some commonly asked questions about landscaping.
Q. What’s trending right now in the landscaping world?
A. We’re seeing a lot of great trends right now:
Q. What is easy to overlook when designing or maintaining your outdoor living space?
A. Most often we see people not being conscious of the plant’s mature size. For example, people tend to plant their plants too close together or the house and then once the plants have reached their full size, the home owner has to go back and consistently maintain them.
A few other things people tend to forget is how important soil preparation is, how the natural habitat has an effect on their landscape (especially those living close to the woods), and how your water runoff can affect your neighbors’ water runoff and drainage.
Especially in the heat of the summer, it’s important to remember that even well-established plants (large trees and shrubs) can benefit from being watered a couple times a week. The stress of the summer heat can lead to issues in the future. Also, using proper pruning technics is critical since a poorly pruned tree or shrub is more susceptible to disease and pest problems. Lastly, people must understand that even a low maintenance garden needs some tending to a couple time of the years.
Q. How can I really make my landscape “pop”?
A. Adding a fireplace, fire pit, pizza oven or outdoor kitchen to a patio gives you a lot more options with your space. Pergolas are great for climbing plants and adds a vertical dimension to your landscape. The right outdoor lighting can turn your home and garden into an entirely new setting at night, and water features add a great natural touch to your garden.
