Homeowners commonly relegate tasks like planting, weeding and pruning to landscaping companies, while failing to recognize the additional services many of these companies offer. Although notable for their ability to improve the aesthetics of a property through gardens, greenery or maintenance, a reputable landscaper can bring so much more to the table. By knowing what else they can provide, you can make a more informed decision before you hire.
If your soil doesn’t drain well or the composition isn’t conducive for your plant life, a skilled landscaper can offer solutions. They can test your soil and determine the Ph level or balance between elements. They may grade your land and create drainage pathways, or develop designs which encourage irrigation. They may also till the land and mix soil or supplements for healthier and vibrant plant growth.
A landscaper can also offer advice on the plant varieties that will work well with your property. A beautiful yard doesn’t require lots of acreage to be impressive. A strategy to maximize sun locations and complimenting colors can turn even the smallest of yards into a wonderland. Your landscaping company will have advice (based on experience) in this area.
One of the most frustrating aspects of gardening is loss and destruction by seemingly invisible insects or fungi. The variety of plants in your yard can play host to a number of bacteria, mold, or fungi, making it difficult for a novice to find out what is killing the plant life. The same can be said of an invasion by hungry insects. A landscaper will be familiar with the types of damage occurring, as well as the best remedy to eliminate the threats.
Having a landscaping company work with your plants and property can offer more than just maintenance support. Dream Co. is known for their ability to encourage the beauty of your landscape with advice on how to improve soil conditions while strategically planting for maximum growth.
