Richmond Hill Snow Removal, Summer Outdoor Fun and More
To improve your yard, start by making a list of everything you do outside. In Richmond Hill, snow removaltakes up most of the winter and lawn care much of the summer, but, hopefully, you do other things outside. Make notes on your list about whether your yard works well for each of the things you do. Sitting in the sun, herb gardening or grilling on the barbeque are some of the activities you might have listed.
What Do You See?
A second list is the visual characteristics of your yard. Does it look well kept? Does it have a style such as traditional or contemporary? Does your landscape provide enough privacy when you look out the living room window? Add to your list changes you would like to see when you look into your yard.
Make a Plan
A landscape analysis like this is the first step in the planning and design process. It is the kind of information that helps a landscape designer make a useful and effective landscape plan for your home. With a good plan in place, you can make sure that the needs and functions that matter most to you will be met when the plan is installed. Most Richmond Hill grass cutting and landscape companies have a designer on staff.
Implementing Your Plan
Landscape plans are usually put into place one step at a time, project by project, year by year. It might be a brick patio the first year and new foundation plants the second year. Often, new trees are installed first. They take the longest to grow and mature. Smaller plant material can be installed in following years. Some of these projects you might be able to do yourself. Your local landscape installation and maintenance company can handle the larger projects.
It takes years for a yard and landscape to reach its full potential. Be patient, but do something every year to make sure your landscape is moving closer to what you want it to be. If you think there should be more activities in your yard than lawn care, Richmond Hill has professional landscape services ready to help you take the next steps.
