Garden Design Tips & Help

Garden design should be done with consideration for the requirements regarding proper lawn growth. When doing garden design keep in mind that grass needs sunlight to grow. If you plan loads of shady areas, you should select grass that can grow in the shade.

You also need to keep the drainage requirements for the soil in mind. If and where needed you have to build drainage walls you can rely on our expertise and manpower to do the job. Apart from our lawn care and maintenance services we also provide a range of hardscaping and garden design services.

When designing your garden you have to do things in a certain order.  As such soil preparation and selection of appropriate plants should be priority. Keep in mind that grass and plants will require watering on a regular basis. By investing in the correct sprinkler system right from the start and planning the lay-out before installing such, you will save a lot of headaches later on.

Some tips are shared below regarding what to do and what not do in terms of hardscaping to help you get started:

  • Take a holistic view of the project and thus the area.
  • Consider the garden design for the whole area.
  • Never ignore drainage requirements.
  • Don’t just drop elements in any spot and hope that they will fit in well.
  • You should strive for a coherent look.
  • Get a focal point and work from there.
  • Work with the natural lines of the space rather propping a linear element in place without consideration for such.
  • Keep enough lawn left as this will enhance the enjoyable atmosphere and usage value of the garden.
  • If the space is small, stick with one style.

The above are just a few pointers. Let us help you with your garden design including lawn establishment, drainage, and hardscaping. Contact us today for professional advice and assistance.
