Our Residential Landscaping Services
Landscaping is a very involved job. It’s more than raking leaves and cutting the grass, even though that’s certainly an aspect of it. Landscaping requires plant life and plant maintenance, or softscaping, as well as installing pathways and outdoor architecture (hardscaping). The right combination of hardscape and softscape is key, and we help our customer's ideas come to reality, finding the perfect balance and a look that suits them to a T.
Some landscape installations we may recommend include:
- Plant beds
- Flower gardens
- Outdoor lighting
- Ponds and fountains
- Retaining Walls
- And more
How Often Do I Need Residential Landscaping Services?
Landscaping for your home is not a “set it and forget it” type of service. Rather, your yard will change with the seasons and it must be maintained according to season. Winnipeg is undoubtedly a 4-season climate, meaning your plants must be able to survive and thrive throughout the brisk spring air to the heat of the summer until the first frost.
Landscaping Ideas For Front of House/Front Yard
While backyard landscaping is something that people are comfortable using to express more unique or personalized ideas, front-of-house landscaping is often matched with more traditional themes, especially when their property is visible from the curb. However, many people still choose to put their own artistic spin on it, so it doesn’t have to be boring!
FLOWER BED BESIDE YOUR HOME (FOUNDATION PLANTS)
To execute this simple idea perfectly, you’ll want to choose perennials that you can always expect to look nice with a little bit of maintenance and won’t overwhelm the front of your house or grow out of control. They must also do well in the sun conditions of your property.
Despite these limitations, there are plenty of beautiful options to choose from, such as roses, lilies, hostas, iris, and yucca, for starters.
RAIN SPOUT PEBBLE PATHWAY
This is both a beautiful and practical choice. Replacing a downspout splash block with a path of pebbles can be just as effective.
BUSHES & SHRUBS LINING YOUR WALKWAYS
This is a classic choice and preferred by many due to the low maintenance required for evergreen shrubs. You can add flowering shrubs that look their best in the spring if there is a good structure that will look good all year round.
You can use mulch to contrast with the plants and make weed management easier. (Mulch also has other benefits such as soil, erosion, and plant protection.)
