Ground cover is what is used to refer to the low level plants that are around your garden and yard. The benefits of well placed ground cover is it prevents erosion, adds another element and filler to void spaces, and can define pathways through your landscape.

An evergreen plant or tree is a plant that keeps its leaves throughout the entire year whereas a tree who loses or sheds its leaves in the autumn and winter months is considered deciduous.

Landscaping in general refers to the design and construction of features, elements, and organic additions to a yard or garden to improve visual appeal and add uses such as living spaces, gardens, pools, and more. Hardscaping refers to the specific use of non-organic materials and hard materials such as cement work, concrete, stone paths, fire pits, and more.

Landscaping fabric can kill grass when used properly. It in essence will suffocate the unwanted grass and weed growth by preventing air circulation and increasing the heat on the plants and seeds underneath the landscaping fabric.

Professional lawn maintenance is important for many reasons including:

  • Saves time and money by letting an expert manage the difficulties and detail of maintaining a healthy lawn
  • It keeps your property looking its best all year long while also improving curb appeal 

You can permanently get rid of weeds by:

  • Using a weak mixture of salt and water on them
  • Spraying the weeds with vinegar
  • Using landscape fabric and covering them. This will in essence starve them of light, air, and increase the heat killing the plant and seeds. 
  • spraying a mixture of dish soap and water on them 
  • Using a flame gun to burn them off

We prefer these methods as to using chemical solutions which can be harmful to the environment. Keep in mind using things such as vinegar and the salt mixture will kill the other plants it gets in contact with. 

When it comes to watering your new plants and flowers, water them right when you finish planting them and let the water soak in then water again. For that first week water them every day then switch to 2-3 times per week considering the weather conditions.

You generally want to aerate your lawn in high growth times. This is usually when there is more rainfall and cooler temperatures typically during the Spring and Autumn. This is because during these periods there is less stress on the lawn and will help to minimize any damage that might happen to your lawn.

An irrigation system is not necessarily needed however it does provide convenience as it is automatic whereas if you use a hose and sprinkler you will have to set it manually.

You should install a drip irrigation system if you have a smaller area needed to cover and want to conserve water. A sprinkler system is better to cover a larger area however is more wasteful in terms of water usage.
