We’re all familiar with the phrase “Out with the old and in with the new” Now let’s apply that to landscapes.
The truth of the matter is that plants have a life span much like we do! There comes a time when our once lovely gardens were fresh, vibrant and a pleasure to be around. But as the years go by, many of our plants simply get old and tired.
We receive many calls from folks who scream HELP my MN property is a mess! And that is where we come in.
Here are just some examples of when a garden or entire landscapes needs a renovation.
- Overgrown – in need of pruning, splitting/transplanting and thinning out
- Boring – bring in some plants that will add texture and interest
- Colorless – add spice to your space by planting colorful perennials and annuals
- Dead shrubs/trees – remove dead shrubs and replace with young and fresh new plants
- Shapeless – create a beautiful flowing edge to highlight your existing garden beds
- Weeds – get root of the weeds so tht they can’t continue to choke the life out of your plants
- Add a garden – create a new space to install incredible new perennials and annuals
Old landscape can add years to the look of your home. It just may be time to revitalize your property by getting rid of unsightly plants and installing young and fresh plant material.
Is it time to reclaim your property?
Let’s create some pizzazz by using the elements of a designed landscape:
- Texture – the overall visual texture of the plant including the size, shape and foliage.
- Balance – there a two type of balance 1) Symmetrical and 2) Asymmetrical
- Function – a cutting garden, a pollinator garden or simply a garden to visually adore
- Proportion – the perfect size and placement of the garden
- Seasonal Interest – planting product that has interest from the spring until winter
