Do you not have the time to execute landscaping techniques properly? No worries! Hiring a professional landscaping company will save you a lot of time, money, and frustration. If you love the idea of upscale landscape design, reach out to us. Here are five common landscaping mistakes that Honeysuckle can help you avoid.
Not Knowing Where to Place Plants
A plant could look perfect in a particular area, but that doesn’t mean it should be there. You have to consider how much sunlight the plant will get, how much water it will require, and whether it will be healthier in dirt beds, rocks, or mulch. If you don’t consider a plant’s needs, it will never reach its full potential and possibly die quickly. Luckily, our landscape professionals have the know-how on ensuring that a landscape thrives.
Keeping Your Grass Too Low
Some golf courses may have grass that grows tall, but we don’t recommend it for your home. When you remove the leaf surface, grass can’t perform photosynthesis. Also, short grass produces weak, unhealthy roots that won’t take in nutrients properly. We do offer mowing services to ensure your lawn looks neat and tidy but thick and full.
Not Thoroughly Planning Out Your Landscaping
Landscaping is an art form. You want your property to have undeniable curb appeal and visual interest. There is also a science behind creating a sustainable landscape that stays green and healthy. It can take a lot of research and practice to have the ideal landscape. If gardening doesn’t come naturally to you, don’t feel bad. Many homeowners hire professional landscapers to ensure that their property looks fantastic, professionally done, and don’t have to experience the frustrating trial and error process.
Implementing Poor Pruning Habits
Proper pruning techniques promote re-growth, and it’s an essential part of the landscaping process. Over-pruning your plants will inhibit growth. Also, knowing when to prune matters as well.
Watering Your Grass Too Much
Grass only needs a specific amount of water to grow. You also want to make sure that you’re water your grass at the right time. The ideal time to water grass is when the sun is not at its peak. Unless your plants are yellowing or browning or wilting, don’t overwater. You also have to consider that Mother Nature will take over and add moisture and hydration to your plant life.
Whether you’re a novice gardener or you have the gift of a green thumb, you’ll benefit from hiring us. Even if your garden is gorgeous, you may want to consider some hardscape features.
