Loving Your Little Landscape

I have never been a natural gardener. For years, I struggled to keep basic houseplants alive, only to kill them at the first opportunity. It was difficult and stressful to buy a home with a yard, but I knew that I might be able to learn what I was doing wrong and correct the problem. To start off, I focused heavily on the lawn, and tried hard to keep it trimmed and well-maintained. Next, I cleaned up the flowerbeds. It was a lot of work, but I knew that it would pay off in the end. When I was done, my front yard was gorgeous, and guess what--it even stayed alive. This blog is all about loving your little landscape.

Tired Of Your Landscaping? 3 Benefits Of Hiring A Custom Landscaping Company

by Charlotte White

If you are tired of your landscaping, you should consider hiring a custom landscaping company. There are many benefits of doing this, three of which are listed below. You can then find a custom landscaping company to get started for you.

Expert Knowledge About Flowers

The custom landscaper knows the best flowers to choose for your landscaping. For example, they know the native flowers for your state that will grow best for you. The contractor will determine where you want to plant flowers, install a flower garden, etc. This allows them to put plants in that will work well with the amount of sun they'll get. This is important because some flowers grow better with full sun most of the day while others need more shade.  

The contractor also knows how to properly plant everything, how much water they need, and the best type of fertilizer to use. This will ensure your flowers grow healthy for you. The contractor can test your soil to determine if it is lacking in nutrients. 

Enjoy Spending Time Outside

With beautiful landscaping, you and your family may enjoy spending more time outside together. The custom landscaping company can help with this by adding a patio outside along with flowers and trees. You and your family can eat on your patio, and you could entertain people. 

The landscaping contractor can also create areas that you will enjoy spending time in. They can install a beautiful water garden or install a waterfall and/or water fountain. Hearing running water can be relaxing. Along with all this, the landscape contractor may choose to install seating, such as a garden bench for you to sit and relax. They can install paths or walkways in your yard leading to these different areas.

Use Container Gardening

If you do not have a large yard, it can be difficult to landscape. You may not have enough space to install a flower garden, waterfall, etc. If not, the custom landscaping contractor can use container gardening. Beautiful flowerpots of different sizes look beautiful in any yard. The contractor will know the best places to put the flowerpots. They may also use hanging baskets filled with beautiful, cascading colors. 

The contractor may choose a barrel or a half barrel to plant flowers in. This is much larger than flowerpots and can easily be seen by people driving or walking by. The contractor will know the best flowers to plant in containers as some flowers do better when planted in the ground.
