Dramatic Results From Hardscaping & Landscaping by Greenlawn Georgia
We enjoy working with our clients to help them achieve dramatic results from hardscaping and landscaping by Greenlawn Georgia. The work involved in achieving the landscaped property our clients desire includes two branches: hardscaping and softscaping. Hardscaping includes non-organic man-made structures including pathways, patios, fire pits, retaining walls, etc.
Softscaping on the other hand includes the planting of live horticultural materials and the prior preparatory work including grading, soil amendment, and bed preparation before tree and plant installation, and sod installation.
First Step: Site Preparation
The first step in the installation process is the preparation of the land by clearing and grading. Any drainage, erosion control, or storm water control would be addressed in this stage by grading to add swales, terraces, or berms; or by installing site improvements such as underground piping, French drains, or dry beds.
Amendment for Healthy Soil
A healthy landscaped garden is dependent on healthy soil – the absorptive, nutritional, and organic quality of the soil. The initial step of plant material installation is often adding soil amendment before planting. After clearing, grading, and bed preparation are completed, plant material deliveries are scheduled to ensure timely planting.
We Incorporate Georgia Native Plants
Whenever possible we utilize Georgia native plants in our landscaped areas. Here in Georgia we have an abundance of beautiful native plants to grace your property. The Georgia Native Plant Society dictates that native plants are those plants which have inhabited a particular region for thousands of years. Check out this interesting article from the U.S. Forest Service explaining that native gardening is better for the environment by not introducing fertilizer, and by promoting biodiversity through reduced pollution, and provision of shelter and food for wildlife.
When native plants are used it helps to create a balance for the environment and you will see an abundance of hummingbirds and butterflies, both of which help your flowers and yard grow. The University of Texas, University of Georgia and Georgia Department of Natural Resources have a wealth of information on finding the right plants and trees for your house. If you are just starting your journey into tree and plant installation and need some great ideas The University of Georgia has online events, on varied landscape topics.
Sustainability for the Long Term
Today’s homeowner is often concerned about water conservation. Proper grading and careful selection of appropriate landscaping materials are important in conserving water. There are other eco-friendly hardscape products to consider as well, one of the most effective is Belgard permeable pavers which allow water to percolate down into the ground below. This not only reduces the amount of storm water runoff into driveways and streets, but it also helps the environment by allowing rainwater to moisturize the ground. Permeable pavers are installed over a gradient bed of gravel and can incorporate a water harvesting system that recycles water for irrigation or other uses. This is just one more strategy to achieve dramatic results from hardscaping and landscaping by Greenlawn Georgia.
Utilizing the Best Bermuda and Zoysia Sod
One of the biggest ways to see dramatic results with your landscaping is a beautiful, pest and weed free lawn. Here at Greenlawn Georgia we take pride in installing the best Bermuda and Zoysia gathered from reputable sources. Both of these varieties of sod are considered warm-season turf by The University of Georgia. They have information for the type of each turf and have a tolerance chart that is helpful to understanding our unique climate. The Integrated Pest Management Center, a division of the USDA, explains sod profile for Georgia. They go over pest management, weed control and diseases that can interfere with the lawn that you want to see.
Greenlawn Georgia utilizes superior equipment, years of expertise and a dedicated landscape crew to create the landscaped property our clients desire. We follow state law by ensuring that we contact the proper Georgia 811 agency before digging, this ensures that you get the yard you want without having to worry about the process.
