Planning Your Landscape for 2016

Flower Bed and Curved EdgeEvery homeowner knows that landscaping is an integral part of a home’s appearance and overall value.

  • Curb appeal is a prime selling feature in today’s real estate market.
  • Your home’s landscape is the first sight others see.
  • Proper landscaping can dress up the appearance and add value to your home.

As with any home project, landscaping must be updated on a regular basis. Unfortunately, it is not a once and done type of project. During these cold, dreary days of winter, you should start planning your landscaping projects now.

The first step in landscape project planning is forming a custom landscape design. Even in the most carefully planned neighborhoods, no two yards are the same. Sometimes this is due to the structure of the soil or the slope of the ground. At other times, the uniqueness of the landscape is due to the homeowner’s personal preference. Regardless of the reason, a custom landscape design is necessary for every home.

Showcase Landscape Services specializes in finding the perfect design for every yard, regardless of its size or style.

Why Hire a Landscaping Specialist?

Some homeowners feel that Landscape Design is a DIY project, for the do-it-yourselfer. Armed with their own hand drawn plans, or watching a YouTube “how to” video, they build and plant things that may look nice in a book or on screen, only to find that the plants chosen aren’t right for your property or area. Or, the retaining wall or paved walk they built is not exactly right. Why take this chance? It can be a costly mistake.

When you hire a company like Showcase, we know what grows in this area. We take a number of factors into consideration, including the chemical makeup of the soil, the amount of sunlight over every inch of the yard, the hours of shading and so on. Our landscape designers are also current on the latest trends and understand which ones will work best for your home.

The time to start planning your landscape project is now. Waiting until spring for your home’s landscape project is far too late. You need time to research ideas before settling on what you are looking for.

Why not call and speak with one of our professionals at Showcase? Now is a perfect time to plan, and get on our schedule for the Spring, so you can enjoy that new landscape this summer.
