Landscape construction services fall into two categories which are hardscapes and softscapes. Materials such as natural stone pavers fall under the “hardscaping” category. Hardscape services can include outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, retaining walls, decks, and fire pits. Water features also fall under the “hardscaping” category.
Softscapes, on the other hand, involve services and installations that include plants and other organic materials. When a landscaper plants perennials, shrubs, or trees, this falls under the “softscaping” category. Softscape services could be landscape architecture, design, ornamental bed and tree installations, or landscape renovations. Landscape construction services are comprehensive and ensure that you have a cohesive, functional, and aesthetically pleasing space. Now that you have a working definition of landscape construction, here are a few things to consider when hiring us.
Drainage and Grading Solutions Are Also a Part of Landscape Construction
If the drainage in your yard isn’t adequate, this has a damaging effect on your entire property. Pools of water can damage tree roots and attract unwanted pests to your yard. It would also be best if you prevented structural damage to your yard. Also, if your landscape doesn’t have adequate grading, we can take care of this to ensure that a flood or storm does not match your property.
Let Us Know How You Want to Use Your Landscape
Do you want your landscape to serve as an area that your children can roam around in and explore? Would you love to have outdoor date nights with your spouse or entertain your family and friends? Maybe you’d like to have an outdoor living space solely for relaxation. Perhaps you want your outdoor living space to stand out compared to your neighbors’ property, having the ultimate curb appeal. Whatever purpose you want your landscape construction to serve, you should think about this thoroughly and describe your vision to us in detail.
Browse Our Website, Other Resources, and Set a Budget
When it comes to home improvement, research is always strongly advised. You want to narrow down your style and preferences and see what options you have. Look to our website for inspiration. HGTV and Pinterest are also excellent resources. With that in mind, you always have to be aware of your budget. Of course, prices vary, and we’ll ensure that you’re well-informed about how much our services cost. However, having a baseline of how much particular services cost doesn’t hurt so that there are no surprises.
