Lawn and Landscape Resolutions

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed all this time off with your loved ones as much as we did! If you’re part of the 45% of Americans who make New Year resolutions, you probably already have a list of resolutions and goals you want to accomplish this year. Some of the most popular resolutions involve improving one’s body, but what about improving one’s landscape? Make 2019 the year you accomplish all of your landscape goals. Looking for some landscape resolutions that will help you achieve this?

1. Make Your Dream Landscape A Reality

Remember that perfect landscape you’ve been dreaming about? This winter season is a great time to start planning it all out paper. In addition to finally having the landscape of your dreams, you’ll also enjoy the added benefit of increased property value. Not sure where to start? Take a look around your Property. Does the entrance to your property look inviting? Does your home or business have great curb appeal? Are your trees and shrubs pruned? Plants that have not been pruned can look unkempt and unorganized. It is so important to maintain the health of your trees and shrubs for so many reasons. Small additions to your lawn, or simply maintaining the plants and trees you already have can add so much to your property value.

Regardless of what your dream landscape involves, starting the design process during winter helps ensure that when spring rolls around you’re planning your next get together, not your next home improvement project. That means more time spent with friends and family on the patio, and more time relaxing by the fire pit! Looking for ways to add texture, color, and seasonal interest into your landscape? New plant materials, mulch, and decorative boulders are a great way to accomplish this goal!

Anxiety and stress is drastically lowered when trees are visible in homeowners yards? Crazy, right? But true!

3. Keep your Trees Healthy and Green

Your trees need love too! A lot of people are under the misconception that all trees will be fine without fertilization. While this might be true for some disease resistant species, it doesn’t stand true for all. You will find if you ever decide to grow any type of fruit tree that within the first year it will be covered in disease and pests that will potentially kill the tree and all the juicy fruit that comes with it! Your trees love mulch just as much as your flower gardens do! Mulch helps to conserve water at the base of your tree, adds nutrients to the soil, prevents erosion and so much more! At GreenLawn by Design we perform routine fertilization for all your trees to ensure longevity and prevent any pests or diseases

4. Upgrade Your Irrigation System

Maintaining a lush landscape requires consistent and effective watering. One of the easiest ways to ensure this happens is to install an irrigation system in your landscape. Save yourself time and money by having a professional install your irrigation system. Their expertise will ensure that your irrigation system is properly in place and won’t cause any costly problems later down the road. If you already have an irrigation system, make sure it is up to code. It may be time to upgrade your system if you notice any of these signs
– Your new lawn feature isn’t draining properly.
– You just added a garden to your landscape.
– Your water bill is way too high.
– Patches of dead grass are appearing on your lawn.
– This year’s new plants require a different watering routine than last year’s plants.
With financial resources like rebates available, upgrading your irrigation system doesn’t have to be costly. Also, you’ll be able to see the savings add up as your water bill gets smaller and smaller.

5.  Spend More Time Enjoying Your Landscape

Life is very hectic these days. It’s so easy to get caught up in your daily work tasks or family matters. Before you know it, another year has come and gone. Make 2019 the year you make time for yourself and enjoy the full benefits of your landscape. Take the time to stop and smell the roses, literally. Your landscape is gorgeous and you deserve some well-earned “me time” where you can just relax and soak in the beauty that surrounds you in your own backyard. Want to spend more time bonding with the kids? Have a family BBQ by the pool. Have fun listening to the birds sing while you admire the flowers and you sip your morning coffee. Put your green thumb to use and plant herbs and garden vegetables within your arbors so that you can enjoy a constant supply of fresh cooking ingredients.
