FiveSTAR Makes you feel at Home
Folsom Landscapers help clients feel at home in their landscaping
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Landscaping: to modify or ornament (a natural landscape) by altering the plant cover
While that definition is correct, it does seem to be pretty narrow! Plant cover, what about decks, arbors, streambeds, boulders, water features, walls, patios? I would consider those all part of the landscaping in your yard.
All of these elements and more are so important to the “feel” of your home. Have you ever been in a yard that just did not feel right? Maybe it was just as simple as an element in the wrong place. A wall placed a little to the right or left, a little taller or shorter, can make a world of difference.
The “plant cover” in a yard is easy to change!
It is the permanent features that make a larger impact on the overall feel long-term. Walls, concrete, shade structures, water features these are all much harder to change in the long run, not to mention more expensive, than changing a few plants. Don’t get me wrong, having to replace a lot of plant material that is not thriving in your landscape will be expensive too, but with a little research selecting the correct plants will be a piece of cake.
The Perfect Landscape Design?
There are a lot of challenges in designing the “perfect” landscape. What do you want to use your yard for, entertaining, room for children or pets to play, an outdoor kitchen, just a quiet oasis from the craziness of the outside world? These are all important things to keep in mind BEFORE starting to put in the permanent features.
