Think of your home as a jewel, and your landscape as the setting it resides in. When the two work together aesthetically, you have tremendous curb appeal. That’s important in Sandwich, where the beauty of the natural environment is such a part of the community’s charm.
Don’t Know Where To Start With Landscape Design? Here Are Some Tips
New homeowners often tell us that they want their yard to look great, but they’re not sure exactly what that involves. One way to get clear on what you want is to ask some questions, such as:
How do you plan to use your land? Families with young children may want play features built into the landscape, while passionate cooks need space to grow herbs and vegetables. It’s totally okay to say you just want to enjoy the view – a good Sandwich landscaping company will develop a plan to meet your unique needs.
How hands on do you want to be with your landscape? Some people really enjoy planting flowers, cutting grass, caring for shrubs and all the other work that goes into keeping a landscape looking good. Trust us – we get it. There’s a reason we’re in the lawn care business. But we also know that some people prefer to leave the work to someone else. Be upfront with your landscape designer. It’s easier to include ambitious landscape features in a plan when you know the homeowner will have professional help carrying them out.
Do you have any special interests such as water conservation or attracting butterflies to your yard? Experiencing a severe drought has made many Sandwich homeowners very cognizant of water usage. Your landscape designer can help you choose drought-resistant grasses, plants, trees, and shrubs as needed. If you love birds, butterflies, and other pollinators, choosing the right flowering plants and shrubs can encourage them to spend time in your landscape.
