Irrigation and Drainage
A well designed irrigation system is needed in the landscape to provide your plants, lawn and trees with the right amount of water to maintain the texture, color, and growth of your plantings.
The installation of a irrigation system will pay for itself by conserving water(when watering by hand, approx. 50% of water that is lost by runoff, evaporation, not to mention the value of installing of a separate water meter for irrigation to avoid paying sewer charges on the water used on watering your landscape. It can be programmed to operate late in the evening or early in the morning when water evaporation is at its lowest levels.
A professionally installed irrigation system will assist you in saving money and helping to protect our environment.

Areas for outdoor enjoyment take on many forms. One of most popular is the patio. A patio may or may not be attached to the house. The success of the patio depends on the location.
Patio styles are many, and having the right style for your needs is very important. The surface should be flat, safe and have proper drainage. The use of pavers is very popular because you have choices in texture, size, shape and color. Once the pavers are layed, the patio becomes very low maintenance.
The walkway or path is the usual route from the street or parking area to the front door. It creates a first impression and sets the tone for the house and the gardens in the landscape. Comfort, safety, and a clear choice of direction are the three hallmarks of a well-designed walkway or path.
Again, you have many choices for surface material, edging, and shape to enhance the walkway or path. It could be either straight or curving depending on the space and purpose of the design.
The walkway creates a transition from one area to another, so it’s important to think about the experience people will have as they move along the walkway.

When dealing with a slope, you may need to hold back part of it to create a garden bed you want. These structures can be an attractive asset to the design, often becoming a powerful design feature in the landscape.
Retaining walls higher than 40 inches should be constructed by a licensed contractor to ensure proper design features such as strength, proper drainage, and overall safety of the wall. The use of natural stone or commercial products are highly recommended for retaining wall construction in most landscape designs today.

Pergola and Arbor Design
An arbor is one of the most romantic structures in the garden. It is intimate in scale and timeless in style.
An arbor is ideal for marking an entry or indicating an opening along a fence line or hedge. It is also used to enhance a place to sit, with a seating bench or to create a view that you would see as you pass through the arbor from either direction. Arbors have many styles and textures to add a strong focal point to the landscape.

All well designed landscapes reduce the need for ongoing maintenance of the entire design, but are needed to maintain the beauty and care of your landscape.
Having a professional care for your gardens and overall property must be an individual who has many years of experience and knowledge to ensure the quality of the design of your home.
