Johnson’s Landscaping Service is a family oriented business with over 50 years of pleasing homeowners. Tree planting and yard maintenance are obvious specialties; however, divisions of carpentry, lighting and drainage are highlights featured as well.
Most landscapes have shady areas, depending on the trees on and around the property. Sometimes homeowners ignore the shady areas and plant just in the sunny spots. But, comprehensive overall landscape planning takes the shaded areas into account, filling in a spacious design with shade-loving plants, shrubs, and trees.
Perhaps you can envision the perfect landscape for your home. A neat and structured front yard, bountiful blooms of varied heights alternating with robust greenery, partially shaded with large healthy trees. The backyard is an ocean of green with repeating patches of colorful flowers and plants of varying textures, easily accessible by a stroll down a winding pathway. Benches and a few chairs offer a spot for relaxation and complement the fire pit and gathering area for friends and family.
When selecting plants, shrubs, and trees, landscape designers focus on the following visual factors to balance the space and make it visually appealing:
The winter season is quickly approaching with the ever growing chill in the air. Your landscape is not a lost cause for the colder months of the year as there are plenty of ways to prepare your yard for the warmer months of the year.
If you spend a good part of winter wishing it would snow just so that it would cover everything in the yard up and make it look beautiful for a while, it’s time to correct the problem. The right plants can help you create low-maintenance interest and color all year long that can make your winter garden seem like it has a touch of magic in it. Here are two suggestions you can use.
There’s a common thought that landscape services are only for the wealthy. That it’s only for the people who live in those large houses, in the gated communities. Or that only the large corporations can afford to pay someone to landscape the area around the building, but small businesses have to get it done themselves.
A yard that looks like a swamp after a hard rain can be a nightmare for many homeowners. Besides being unattractive, standing water on grass can also present other serious issues such as compromising the health of your plants and lawn. Even worse, this condition can encourage pests such as mosquitoes or cause water to seep into a basement. What’s more, you can’t enjoy your yard until it’s repaired.
Most people admire others who have put a lot of care into their lawns, backyards and front yards. However, when it comes to doing up their own, they might shy away from the idea of getting landscaping services,
largely because it seems like such a big project.
Whether you’re looking to enhance your landscape design or have your yard landscaped for the first time, there are plenty of good reasons to landscape your home. There are economic reasons, health reasons, and environment and social reasons. The benefits of good landscape design are broad and varied and completely worth it.
