1. I just moved into a new home, What are the 1st landscaping jobs you suggest?
The absolute first thing to do when dealing with a new property is to examine the trees and get rid of any dead branches. Not only can they be a potential hazard, but removing them will change how sunlight reaches your lawn and inform further landscaping decisions.
2. Do I need to mow my lawn once a week?
Most experts will tell you that weekly cutting is optimal, but the real answer has less to do with how often than with how much you should cut. A good rule of thumb is a lawn of three inch grass, but the more important idea is to always leave at least two-thirds of the blade as trimming more can cause considerable damage.
3. How do I level my yard that has lots of bumps & ridges?
If your goal is a long term level lawn, then the best solution is to lift the sod and fill with sand or topsoil to create a balanced top layer. Simply filling in holes and destroying sod rises will result in uneven grass growth and could do more harm than help.
4. What are the best type of pavers?
It really depends on the specific project you want to complete. Interlocking brick and composite materials often provide a solid combination of durability and appearance, but concrete pavers are well-suited to difficult landscapes that require specialized landscape design.
5. Do I need a sprinkler system or special irrigation unit?
Only a professional who has analyzed your particular situation can give a qualified answer to this question. In some cases, irrigation may actually impede growth of certain plants and trees. Before installing sprinklers or other irrigation techniques, call us to take a look.
