FREQUENTLYASKED QUESTION


How late in the season can trees, shrubs and sod be installed?

We plant trees and shrubs and lay sod right up until Halloween and beyond in many cases.  Trees and shrubs go dormant in fall so it is an ideal time to plant them withouth the risk of them going into shock.  We warranty all of our tree and shrub plantings as well as our sod installations so if there is any die out or winter kill rest assured, your plantings will be replaced in spring.

WHAT IS A LOW MAINTENANCE LANDSCAPE?

This is one of the most common questions we receive from our customers.  To start with, we create low maintenance landscapes by recommmending drought tolerant trees and shrubs for your gardens.  These trees and shrubs will require far less watering throughout the growing season. We do not recommend perennials for low maintainence garden beds as they require thinning out and cutting back each season as they tend to spread throughout your garden area.  Planting less shrubs and adding more features like ornamental boulders greatly reduces the maintainence.  We also recommend a heavy weed barrier and stone or wood mulch to keep the weeds down.


DO I NEED A LANDSCAPE DESIGN FOR MY PROJECT?

About two thirds of the landscape projects we create are installed without a landscaping design.  Some homeowners prefer to see a full, to scale, landscape design to help them visualize their projects. The more elaborate your landscape project is the more helpful a landscape design will be to you and your landscaper.   Landscape designs are recommend for those who would like to install their projects themselves.
