It may seem like having the landscaping done at your house is a one time deal, but to keep a fresh and inviting look we recommend having it cleaned up at least once per year. Below are 5 reasons to clean up your lawn, walkways, and shrubbery.
1. Prevent Overgrowth: Your plants are always growing and usually in all directions. If they are left to their own, they can easily take over walkways or grow much larger than you had wanted. This can result in shadier areas and an increasingly cluttered look. Trim up the trees and shrubs often enough to keep a crisp and organized look.
2. Improve Home Value: Landscaping can increase the value of your home by tens of thousands of dollars immediately. Unlike interior projects, the value of landscaping does not depreciate, as long as it is kept up. Also, having a cleaned-up exterior gives buyers the impression that the interior has been just as well maintained.
3. Improve House Appearance: When the perennials and shrubs are overgrown, the house can appear smaller. They can hide the structure of the home so that the foundation of the house disappears. Visitors won’t see the building and its design when an overgrown hedge is drawing everyone’s eye instead.
4. Repair After Winter: We all know how bad Rochester winters can be. Your landscaping is surely not immune to the cold, snow and wind. Giving your lawn and garden a quick pick-me-up will help it recover and prepare to flourish throughout the spring and summer.
5. Cheaper Option: Skipping a year of clean up might sound like a money-saving technique but it’s actually more expensive if you wait to prune your shrubs. The longer you wait, the more that will have to be done the following year. You are better off keeping up with the landscaping every year rather than putting it off.
To avoid a neglected and uninviting look to your home, have your landscaping maintained at least once per year. Call us today to be put on our lawn care maintenance schedule for the 2019 season!
A lot goes into a landscape before you see the outdoor living space, complete with a fireplace, strategic lighting, a wood-fired pizza oven and a pool with a professionally customized grotto.
This can seem overwhelming when you try to think of how you want your own landscape to look, but if you start at the very beginning, the process is not as daunting as it may seem. You can get the backyard of your dreams in just 3 easy steps:
After you call us to schedule a free consultation, one of our experienced designers will come out to your home to begin discussing what purpose you want your new landscape to serve. We’ll take into account your ideas as well as offer up our own recommendations. We can then divulge into the combination of ideas and talk about what would work best for you based on what you want the function to be.
Once we have a clear idea of what your dream landscape looks like, we will create a 3D rendering of it. If you would like boulders in different locations, a change of lighting or plants, or decide that you want to add a pool surround, we can update the image to make it exactly what would work best for you and your family. It is during this process that we go into the most detail. We want your new landscape to accurately reflect your personality and be the style that you want it to be. It is your home after all!
We can work with you on everything from what plants would work best around your home to where a pool would fit comfortably– all while keeping your budget in mind. We will run through a rough range of numbers within your budget based on the items we discussed in the beginning of the process. We will work to help you understand how much your particular project could cost and how we can manipulate the project to make it fit within both your functionality goals and your budget.
When the design is an accurate reflection of what you want, then we put you on the schedule! If you would like to meet with a designer and start to create your dream landscape, give us a call at (585) 582-1212 or contact us here today!
<h2>Here are three reasons why you should invest in a landscaping team from the start:</h2>
When you decide to build a home and are in the initial phases of the design process, you may not be ready to consider the landscaping. It might seem like a good idea to hold off on the landscaping and tackle one job at a time. Although building a house and creating the landscaping around it sounds like two separate projects, they are actually much better off considered as one.
1. You Have a Blank Slate
Just like when you are building your new home, you will also have a blank slate for your new landscaping. Consider the function you would like your outdoor living space to serve. If you would like a pool, outdoor kitchen or front walkway, then discuss this with your builder and a professional landscape architect. It will take time to develop and complete your project but if you start when the house building begins, the two projects will mold together much more smoothly.
2. The Pros Know What To Do
Hire a professional landscaping team that has been there before. The pros know the rules and regulations so they can help you create your perfect outdoor living space legally. The development industry has changed in recent years, meaning tighter regulatory requirements and an assortment of economic restraints. A professional team, like Josh Landscape, is required to keep up on the laws and knows how to work effectively within them.
3. Most cost effective
If you do the landscaping work at the same time as building your home, potential construction won’t have to be redone in the future. The landscaping team and builder can work together so that both jobs can fit in and be done together. Even if you are not completely certain as to what you want your landscaping to look like, you can at least have the larger projects laid out to prevent as little of renovations as possible when the time comes for you to finish it.
Hiring a professional landscape team to work with your builder when you are building a new home can save you time, money and hassle. You can complete two projects at once and have them work together so that it is more cost effective and less messy. The team at Josh Landscape is prepared to make your new house feel like you are on vacation and can help you create the perfect staycation while building your new home.
The first impression your business makes matters. The exterior of the company, including the sign, is the first thing a customer sees when they come to your place of business. Your brand is not just a logo on a sign but an experience that a customer will remember. Make it a positive and memorable one!
When you are designing your company’s landscape there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
The first is to be selective with what you want to remove and what you want to replace. You may not want the front of the building to be wide open. You can create a more inviting front walkway that is lined with plants and flowers.
Second, you’ll want to be aware of visibility issues. Your business should be easy for potential and current customers to identify from the road. Businesses have reported that a more noticeable sign positively affected their sales and transactions.
Third, an overall transformed curb appeal can change the appearance and demeanor of the business. A business that has a well-manicured landscape and a strong sign give the impression of a successful and trustworthy business.
When you update the landscaping around your company, it appears as if the company has jumped to the next level in their field of expertise. Don’t let a poor landscape and hidden lawn sign deter customers away. Call us at (585) 582-1212 and a professional landscape designer will come out and help you get the ball rolling on an improved first impression.
