You may know that you want landscape services, but just what does that include? Residential landscape services begin with landscape design, but there are many more services that can help you enjoy your outdoor living spaces to the max.
Regular professional landscaping services can also increase your home's curb appeal and value. You can feel confident that you will meet the requirements of your homeowners association, and enjoy your garden without the stress of maintenance.
Creating the landscape
Landscape design is the first task. You don't want to plant trees and then dig them up to see how they'll look on the other side of the lawn. That may be an extreme example, but it's important to have an overall plan when you prepare to do any work on your landscape.
Planting trees, shrubs, flowers, and other plants is the next essential part of your landscaping. The soil must be prepared and there may be other tasks that need to be done in order to get your space from point A (where it is now) to point B (your landscape dream). Hardscapes and rock or water features may also be planned for this stage.
Your landscape is a living environment which will need regular maintenance. In discussion with your landscape designer, you will need to develop a realistic plan for which landscape maintenance tasks you want to take on yourself and which you want to have taken care of for you.
This decision should take into account the time available to you, your budget, your physical capacity, and any specialized skills that might be involved. If you want to accomplish most of your landscape maintenance yourself, this plan should be taken into account in the design phase. An easy-care landscape will have different plants and features from one which will be professionally managed.
Landscape maintenance tasks you might choose to have done for you include weekly lawn care, mulching, fertilizing, watering, pruning, trimming, and edging. Let us take care of these jobs for you and spend more time with your friends and family.
You may also need to have your garden put to bed in the fall, to winterize your sprinkler system, or to test and repair your backflow control systems. OZ Outdoors can schedule tasks like these for you and get them off your mind.
