All of us who actually have a plot of land to call our own underneath the structure in which we live have some type of landscape already in place. The landscape is the description of all the bushes, trees, grass, sidewalks, patios, decks, and anything else visible within your boundaries. When you review your own landscape there may be some issues you need to address or you may be totally satisfied with your space.
Some of us inherited a nice, thoughtfully laid out landscape but then some of us didn’t and aren’t quite sure what to do with it. We just maintain what is already given to us and give thought to visions that might make it a better space. Although there are lots of ‘do it yourself’ projects that many are capable of accomplishing on their own, there is a lot to be said for having a professional give you some advice or a plan to make it the best it can be.
Any time during the year is a good time for making some decisions about which direction to go but there are definitely better times to put in plants and trees. The plant portion of your landscape should generally be addressed during the springs and autumns as these are the very best time to give the plant a chance to survive. The man made portions of your landscape such as the retaining walls, pathways, water features, driveways and many more can be accomplished in almost every season.
An immense expanse of lawn can be beautiful to some but boring to others, either way it can be very time consuming and sometimes expensive to maintain. This is where creating some landscape features can be very beneficial to the appearance of your property. Nature’s Friends can be a big help for you because we have a lot of experience in designing landscapes and then turning them into reality.
The reality is that the return on investments in landscape is at least 100% so it is money well spent. Just look around and try imagining your landscape as you would really like it to look. We can make it happen, it can be done a piece at a time or all at once, it is totally up to you and your vision.
