1. When is the best time of year for landscape installation?

  • Generally, spring is the best time for prepping and planting flower beds and beginning

hardscaping projects.

  • The summer season is when most of the large landscaping and hardscaping projects are done.

  • The fall season is a great time for planting trees and bushes since temperatures are lower than

in the summer. Hardscaping can also continue through the fall until the ground freezes, or it
begins to snow.

2. The differences between landscaping and hardscaping?

  • When referring to landscaping it’s the designing, planning, and construction of gardens and

other features that create space for outdoor activities and enhance the appearance of a home.
Hardscaping is the aspect that includes non-organic materials such as stones and woodwork,
retaining walls, decks, firepits, and more.

3. When should I aerate my lawn?

  • Aeration should take place during the high growth periods. This period is typically during the

cooler times of the year when there is plenty of rain, mainly in the spring and fall. When doing
aeration, it puts stress on the grass which could be detrimental when the grass is already
stressed due to high heat periods of drought.

4. How do I water my new trees, shrubs, and flowers?

  • The basics of watering are simple. Water immediately after planting, let the water soak into the

soil and then add water again. During the first week, it is best to continue frequent watering,
either daily or every other day. Following the first week, you’ll only need to water two or three
times per week depending on the weather conditions in your area.

5. What are the benefits of adding mulch to flower beds?

  • There are many benefits when it comes to mulching flower beds, including:

    • Helping the soil retain moisture.

    • Contributing to soil health as the breakdown of the mulch happens over time.

    • Blocking the sunlight to pesky weeds, helping to keep them at bay.

    • Repelling insects, depending on the type of mulch used.

    • Controlling soil erosion

6. How long should wait to water my lawn after adding fertilizer?

  • Fertilizer should remain on the grass for at least a few hours to be adequately taken up by the

lawn. Waiting 12 – 24 hours before watering is perfectly fine and will ensure the nutrients are
taken up completely.

7. Why should I prune and trim trees in the winter?

  • Pruning in the wintertime causes less stress for trees. Pruning before buds open in the spring

leads to optimum wound closure. By doing it in the wintertime trees can heal from pruning cuts
before warmer weather brings out destructive insects and pathogens.

8. Why should I do hardscape projects in the winter?

  • With most plants in their dormant period and the ground hard, winter hardscaping packs less of

a heavy punch on your property. The lawn and soil are likely to sustain less damage from
equipment, heightened foot traffic, and excavations associated with a hardscaping project.

9. Benefits of Fall gutter cleaning and leaf blowing

  • Prevent water damage.

    • Clogged gutters can't do their job effectively, which is to direct rainwater and snowmelt

away from your home. When water can’t flow through your gutters, it can pool around
your foundation, leading to water damage, leaks, and even structural problems.

  • Avoid Ice Dams

    • In the winter, leaves, and debris in your gutters can mix with snow and ice, creating ice

dams. These dams can damage your roof, gutters, and shingles, leading to costly repairs.

  • Protect your landscape

    • Properly functioning gutters prevent water from overflowing and damaging your

landscaping. Uncontrolled water flow can wash away soil and plants, and even harm
your yard's aesthetic appeal.

  • Prevent pest infestations

    • Clogged gutters filled with leaves and debris can become an inviting home for pests like

birds, rodents, and insects. Regular cleaning helps keep your gutters free of these
unwanted visitors.

  • Extend gutter lifespan

    • Gutters can last longer when well maintained. Keeping them clean helps prevent rust,

corrosion, and other damage that could shorten their lifespan.

  • Healthier living environment

    • Preventing water damage can help maintain a healthier indoor environment. Water

intrusion can lead to mold and mildew growth affecting indoor air quality.

10. How often should I re-mulch my flower beds?

  • We recommend mulching 1 to 2x a year. This will help reduce weed growth in your beds and

keep your plants healthy and thriving.

11. How can a well-landscaped yard help me to sell my home?

  • A well-landscaped home can help to sell your home by improving aesthetic appeal, also known

as curb appeal. Improving the visual appeal of your home boosts the worth and quality of your
