Great Home and Garden Improvement Tips

Hi! My name is Gary and this is my home and garden improvement blog. My passion for working on my home and garden began when I bought my first house. It was a run down little place in the suburbs of Sydney. Even though the place was in a bit of a state, it was in a fantastic location. I spent many hours reading up on DIY and gardening tips before setting about improving the place. It was a lot of hard work but it was also a lot of fun. I learnt a lot during that time so I decided to start this blog.

Services Offered By A Landscaping Company

by admin

When you think about landscaping, you probably think of mowing, trimming and planting gardens, but there's a lot more to it than that, and a landscaping company can provide you with a variety of services that aren't confined to just your lawn. So to help get you up to speed, here are some of the services you can expect when you hire a landscaper.

Landscape Design -- Landscape design is the process by which a landscaping company designs an entire front and backyard scheme for your home or business. This includes the location of gardens and shrubs, different methods to edge your grass, the types of plants and flowers you want to grow and the overall aesthetic, from a tropical theme to a post-modern theme. Some landscaping companies are so sophisticated in their design plans that they can create 3D models of your future landscape using computer-aided design programs.

Planting -- If you want to lay down new grass, install plants, start a garden or bring in trees, a landscaping company can handle all those things. Using the design plans you've created, the landscaper can implement an installation plan to meet all your needs.

Hardscape -- 'Hardscape' is a derivation of the word 'landscape' and is all about installing physical or hard structures such as fences, gates and enclosures that can enhance your yard and also provide security and protection.

Irrigation -- Landscapers are also experts in setting up a water system that best suits your front and back yard. They most commonly install sprinkler systems, but if you have a greenhouse or delicate hedges and rose bushes, they can also install an overhead spray system.

Exterior Lighting -- One of the most overlooked aspects of landscaping is exterior night lighting. The right kind of light can enhance and complement your front and back yard. Landscaping companies can install lights to showcase your trees, hedges and lawn. Whether you choose subtle spotlights, warm glow LEDs or luminarias that light up the path to your front door, a landscaper can help your home look gorgeous at night.

Maintenance -- If you need weekly or bi-weekly maintenance of your property, a landscaping company can provide it for you. This usually includes mowing the lawn, trimming hedges, pruning bushes, general garden care, sprinkler repair and planting new flowers. Landscaping companies will create customised upkeep services to ensure that you only receive the care that you truly need.
