The benefits of residential landscaping are endless. From improving the appearance of your home’s exterior to helping the environment, to adding immediate value to your property, quality landscaping should be a no-brainer for any homeowner.
Below are some landscaping services and how they can improve your property:
Careful and Strategic Design
Landscaping is much more than just planting a few flowers or trimming your hedges every so often. Professional landscapers take into consideration the architectural components of your home, as well as the infrastructure around your property to ensure the result looks seamless. Landscapers understand the different growing patterns of various plants and trees. They can avoid a situation where one plant grows too fast, creating complications or blocking out sunlight for a nearby plant that needs it. As an added bonus, if you live in an area with a pest problem, your landscaper can advise which plants help deter particular infestations like slugs or certain insects.
Solve Problems with Plants
If you have nosy or overlooking neighbours, or you live beside a busy road, strategic tree planting can help create a sense of privacy and eventually, enclose your space. Although trees and shrubs may not create a full physical barrier initially (unless you go with mature hedging), over time it will grow to help minimize noise, increase privacy, and make your property more appealing to prospective buyers.
Use Colour and Variety
Good landscapers know how to recommend and use a variety of colours, textures, and plants that are compatible with each other. Rather than opting for a boring bed of identical flowers, landscapers can help you integrate bushes of varying heights with sprawling vines and unique trees. Their expertise and thoughtfulness when it comes to pairing and placement can help ensure a harmonious result.
Prune Your Trees and Shrubs
An overgrown lawn or plants tend to make a yard look unkempt and rundown. It’s important to properly prune your trees and shrubs so your property looks cared for. Landscapers ensure the job is done correctly as many people tend to go overboard when trimming their hedges and end up with a result that looks too bare.
Add Mulch or Gravel
Adding mulch or gravel around the base of your trees or in a flowerbed helps give your garden a clean, well-maintained appearance. Apart from looking better than bare dirt, using mulch or gravel also helps to prevent weeds while slowing down evaporation to help conserve water. Mulch is highly customizable as it comes in an assortment of colours, although if you’re looking to sell your home in the near future, you may want to avoid choosing something too bold like dyed wood-chip as it may be off-putting to potential buyers.
