Some of the most common landscape challenges involve:
- Rocky or Sandy Soil
- Poor Drainage
- Excessive Shade
- Weeds or Invasive Plants
Designing your landscape around your particular challenges is where a professional can be especially helpful. Generally they are able to put their knowledge and experience to work and find a work around that may not be obvious to you. For example, rather than fighting rocky soil, incorporate a rock garden into your design. A hilly area subject to erosion may benefit from a retaining wall or be better suited for ornamental grasses and/or colorful groundcover. When it comes to drainage issues, it sometimes pays to look outside of the box. There are several options for improving drainage as well as a variety of plants that work well in soggy soil.
A landscape professional can help you select the best plants for success and ease of care based on your climate and conditions. Explore you options you may not have to move mountains to make your landscape dreams come true.
