Are You Looking For a #CITY Landscaping Contractor Today?
We all want a beautiful, green lawn that makes our home stand out in the neighborhood. Acquiring the landscape we desire takes a lot of work. Many of us simply do not have the time or knowledge to create the yard we dream of. Hiring a professional landscaping company like Ecoscape by Design allows homeowners to get the expertise they need to design a yard to compliment their home.
Professional landscaping is a good investment in your property. It can improve the curb appeal of your home and increase resale value. A manicured lawn makes your home look well cared for and appealing. Not only will you enjoy spending time in your yard, you will be proud of the way it looks every time you pull into the driveway.
A professional landscaper provides a variety of services that make your lawn look beautiful and keep it healthy. Some of these services, like mowing, are done weekly while others, like fertilization, happen only a few times a year. Here are a few of the benefits that you will receive from hiring a professional landscaper to take care of your yard.
Landscape Aesthetics, Inc by Design - #CITY Landscaping
According to a Clemson University study, "#CITY Homeowners wanting to increase the value of their property will do well to consider the cost-effective, return potential of quality landscaping, and to safeguard their investments by hiring licensed, professional landscape contractors to perform the work." This study found that quality landscaping can result in more than a 100% return on the investment. Statistics compiled by The Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association are helpful:
Landscaping can increase the resale value of a #CITY property by as much as 14%
The sale of a property can increase by as much as six weeks
A landscaped patio can increase property value by 12.4%
A landscaped curb can raise property value by 4.4% and hedges can add 3.6%
For those who are not yet thinking of resale value, there are numerous non-monetary benefits to enjoy from landscaping your commercial or residential property. Landscaping can block unpleasant views, reduce noise levels and decrease crime, in addition to improving and optimizing the appearance and use of the property. Workers that have a view of trees and flowers feel less job stress and more job satisfaction and fear and anger is reduced when views of plants are possible. Additionally, when properly selected and placed, plants can lower heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%.
All of these benefits are dependent, of course, on designs and installations being done in a #CITY professional landscaper, competent manner. Poor construction, improper installation and low quality plants can turn your property into a liability. Furthermore, unskilled maintenance can quickly ruin your investment.

Improper installation and maintenance of #CITY landscaping projects actually decreases and detracts from a property's value. Maintaining the trees, shrubs, plants and grass on your property requires more than sufficient watering and occasional weeding and pruning. Soil must be monitored for proper pH levels, compaction, nutrient content, water drainage, and grub control. Trees must be trimmed for maximum growth, as well as safety, and sprinkler systems must be maintained to protect the investment. With so many factors influencing the health of your lawn, maintenance can quickly become overwhelming.
By hiring a #CITY landscape maintenance company, you eliminate all hassles associated with property upkeep. Qualified professionals will often know, just by looking at your lawn, where grubs are likely infested, whether a certain tree will thrive in a certain area and if your yard could benefit from a lime treatment to balance the soil pH levels. They will know when to aerate, when to plant and when to prune. Meanwhile, you won't damage your turf through over-aeration or waste money on improperly applied lime treatments. Hiring professionals with the knowledge and experience will not only eliminate hassles for you, it will safeguard your investment by keeping it healthy, ensuring you the maximum amount of return.
#CITY Outdoor Kitchens:
There has always been a need, on hot summer days, for the cooler kitchen and for many years people would move their kitchens to the cool comfort of their basements. With modern technology available the outdoor kitchen, built on the patio. has become more desirable. There are many outdoor kitchen designs available with all of the indoor kitchen amenities. The patio is not the only place for your outdoor kitchen. Some are built in gazebos placed in picturesque gardens or facing interesting, scenic views.
At one time the outdoor kitchen was nothing more than a charcoal grill. Today, it has all of the amenities of the indoor kitchen. Your patio kitchen can have a sink, stove with a gas grill, refrigerator, a kegorator in which to keep the beer cool, a wine cooler, cabinets for storage and much more. Your outside kitchen can have an island on which you can eat, watch television on your outdoor tv and play table games with the family. When you design your outdoor kitchen you will have the option of wood cabinets or polymer. Wood, as we all know, will warp and peel during the winter months. Polymer is a high density polyethylene that will withstand the toughest weather. Your outdoor space can be designed with furniture that is weather resistant.
There are many outdoor kitchen benefits. First and foremost, there is the comfort followed closely by every convenience. Here you have all of the leisure comforts of the outdoors, in which to relax and enjoy your garden; and the convenience of an indoor kitchen without running in and out to get what you want (the old way). Your outdoor patio area is the best place to entertain friends and family on a hot summer day or a cool fall day. It can be available from spring through autumn. And in some climates it is a great space to use all year long.
