Maintaining Your New Outdoor Landscape
You will discover during the planning process that we take time to assess the natural layout of your land. It is our goal to work in cooperation with the environment so that everything co-exists in perfect balance, while reducing excessive maintenance requirements. Here are some examples:
- Placing shade trees close to your home, but not so close that they can damage your roof.
- Selecting plants, shrubs and trees that grow best with the soil composition and conditions.
- Introducing drainage to prevent flooding in high activity areas while conserving moisture where it is needed to support plant life.
- Using durable, impact-resistant materials for high volume traffic areas.
- Finishing vulnerable materials (wood) with superior coatings to protect from weather and sun damage.
- Avoiding pools of sitting water prone to breeding infectious insect populations.
- Installing landscape materials that prevent the growth of weeds.
- Providing ample access for navigation and ease of maintenance.
- Creating an environment that is safe for adults, children and pets.
In addition, we are sensitive to your security risks. We include elements in your design such as decorative gates, fencing and lighting that discourage unwanted visitors, including both wildlife and human intruders.
