A lawn care company will mow, fertilize, replace sod, perform pest control, and seed. Landscaping, on the other hand, can be characterized by the transformation of an outdoor space either by planting, construction, or rearranging. What is the difference between the two and why is each important?
Landscape planners, architects, and designers are the artists that paint the beauty on the canvas of your landscape. Landscaping services could be right for you if you want your yard to look great. It does not address underlying issues that may cause your yard to look unhealthy. Many landscaping companies offer individual services instead of an all-encompassing program if you would like to handle some of the landscaping tasks yourself.
- Design – Consider this service as the outdoor version of interior decorating. The design increases curb appeal and make your yard a place for growing, relaxing and entertaining. The landscaper knows the appropriate plants for your location and how plants can be arranged and complement each other.
- Planting – This modern gardening philosophy plays matchmaker in the landscape, placing plants in a spot where they’ll naturally thrive — with minimal input from the gardener. That is how a landscaper’s knowledge can improve your property. The result is a landscape design that’s a breeze to maintain.
- Trimming – It is a great time to clear away last season’s debris. Clearing and trimming trees shrubs and bushes will give your landscaping a fresh, clean look. It improves curb appeal and is an indication of the high standards of home and business owners.
- Mulching – Mulch helps to moderate soil temperature and retain soil moisture which is good for the health of your plants. Adding a layer of mulch to your flower beds also improves the appearance of your beds and suppresses weed growth. Additionally, organic mulches provide nutrients to your plants as they breakdown.
