Commercial & Residential Landscape Design and Installation FAQ
What does commercial landscaping include?
Commercial landscaping encompasses a range of services such as lawn maintenance, tree and shrub care, irrigation system installation and maintenance, hardscaping (e.g., walkways, patios), landscape design and installation, and seasonal services like snow management.
Will landscaping add value to my property?
Yes, landscaping can significantly enhance the value of your property. Well-designed and maintained landscapes improve curb appeal and create an inviting and aesthetically pleasing environment, which can attract potential buyers and increase property value.
Will Landscaping Increase the Resale Value of My Home?
Absolutely! Landscaping can significantly impact the resale value of a home. A beautifully designed and well-maintained landscape can make a positive impression on potential buyers, increase curb appeal, and differentiate your property from others in the market, ultimately leading to a higher resale value.
What is the best time of the year to landscape?
The ideal time for landscaping depends on various factors, such as the specific climate and region. Generally, spring and fall are popular seasons for landscaping, as the weather is milder and more conducive to planting and establishing new vegetation. However, consulting a professional landscaper can help determine the most suitable time for your location and project.
Why is landscaping important?
Landscaping is essential for several reasons. It enhances the aesthetics of a property, improves outdoor living spaces, creates a harmonious environment with nature, provides relaxation and stress relief, contributes to environmental sustainability by reducing erosion and water runoff, and increases property value.
What is landscaping vs. hardscaping?
Landscaping refers to the overall design, installation, and maintenance of outdoor areas, including vegetation, trees, shrubs, flowers, and lawns. It focuses on creating visually appealing and functional outdoor spaces. On the other hand, hardscaping refers to the non-living elements of a landscape, such as pathways, driveways, patios, retaining walls, and other structural features that complement the overall design.

Irrigation Services FAQ
How often should you irrigate your lawn?
The frequency of lawn irrigation depends on various factors such as climate, soil type, grass type, and local regulations. Generally, it is recommended to water lawns deeply and infrequently. Most lawns benefit from about 1-1.5 inches of water per week, which can be divided into two or three watering sessions. However, it is crucial to monitor the moisture levels in the soil and adjust irrigation frequency accordingly to prevent overwatering or underwatering. We’re happy to help you monitor and irrigate your lawn at the correct intervals.
How long should you water your lawn with an irrigation system?
The duration of lawn watering with an irrigation system varies depending on the type of sprinkler heads, water pressure, and soil conditions. A common guideline is to water for about 20-30 minutes per session, allowing enough time for the water to penetrate the soil to a depth of 6-8 inches.
Mulching Services FAQ
How often do you recommend having mulch installed?
We recommend applying a 2–3-inch layer of mulch to your beds. Over time, mulch will naturally degrade. We recommend adding fresh mulch when the layer thickness is below 2 inches. In our region, it is customary to install mulch and perform landscape maintenance on a seasonal basis. Keep in mind that certain types of mulch may break down more rapidly than others.
Why is mulch needed in my landscaping?
Mulch plays a vital role in landscaping for several reasons. It helps to conserve soil moisture by reducing evaporation, which is especially beneficial during hot and dry periods. Mulch acts as an insulating layer, regulating soil temperature and protecting plant roots from extreme heat or cold. Additionally, mulch helps suppress weed growth by blocking sunlight and can enhance the visual appeal of your landscaping by providing a neat and uniform appearance.
What benefits does mulching have?
Mulch helps retain soil moisture, reducing the need for frequent watering and promoting healthier plant growth. It also acts as a natural weed barrier, minimizing weed competition and the need for herbicides. It also helps regulate soil temperature, preventing extreme fluctuations that can stress plants. Additionally, mulch helps improve soil structure, protects against erosion, and adds aesthetic value to your landscaping.
How long should mulch last?
The longevity of mulch can vary depending on factors such as mulch type, climate, and environmental conditions. In general, organic mulches, like wood chips or bark, gradually break down over time and may need replenishing every 1-3 years. Inorganic mulches like stone or rubber can last longer, often requiring less frequent replacement.
