The Benefits of Landscaping Services
Even if you enjoy working in the yard, taking on a landscaping project on your own is a difficult endeavor. Having a professional landscaping services contractor design and install your landscape is beneficial in many ways. Here are a few reasons why a professional landscaping service from GMC Landscapes is the right choice for your property:
1. Landscaping Services save you time
A professional landscaper handles all the details from start to finish, so you don’t have to worry about missing a step. This will save you time in the long run because you won’t have to go back to fix mistakes. In addition, you don’t have to take time out of your busy work schedule to take care of any installation or maintenance because it is being taken care of for you.
2. Landscapers have a plan
A professional landscaper always has a plan in place before starting the job and is able to transform the vision you have in your head into reality. At GMC Landscapes, we will create a map of your property, noting all structures. We will incorporate the design onto the map and choose the best plants for the seasons and climate, ensuring that the colors and styles match.
3. More energy-efficient
Landscapers know how to best place trees, shrubs, and hardscapes to provide shade and keep the overall property cool. This can have an impact on your overall heating and cooling costs.
4. Increase curb appeal and value
There is no doubt that a beautifully designed landscape can have a positive effect on a property’s value. A welcoming design will draw in visitors, which can help you if you ever decide to sell your property.
Inspirational landscape design
The best landscape design is one that is well thought out and planned beforehand, with attention paid to every little detail. This type of attention is what you can expect to receive from us at GMC Landscapes. We will help you decide what landscape design is best for your lifestyle and home. We will work with what you have, including the conditions of the yard and the climate. Some questions we will consider include:
Does the area get a lot of sun, or is it mostly shade?
What do you plan to use the yard for?
Do you have any pets or children?
What landscape design will complement your home best?
Do you want something low-maintenance or do you enjoy gardening and caring for the yard?
Do you want any hardscapes, such as a patio, walkway, or fence?
After we consider these questions, we will work with you to come up with the perfect landscape design. Here are just a few examples of the possibilities:
1. English garden
The English garden typically includes perennials and shrubs that match the architecture of the home. It also often incorporates bird baths and gazebos into the design.
2. Formal landscape
A formal landscape has symmetrical patterns, straight lines, and geometric shapes with topiary designs. This is a good option for homeowners who love to work in their yard because it requires upkeep.
3. Informal landscape
A more informal landscape uses curved edges and soft shapes. Plants and shrubs are added in a way that seems random.
4. Oriental landscape
This type of landscape includes a variety of plants with distinctive properties. Rocks, evergreens, and water are also incorporated into the design.
Landscaping architecture that works with nature
Landscaping architecture incorporates art, environment, and engineering to create a cohesive design. At GMC Landscapes, we are proud of our landscaping architecture experts. Our goal is to choose a design that works with nature, not against it, so each property has a landscape that blends perfectly with its surrounding environment. We do this by considering the current plant life in the yard, the climate, and the overall look of the property. There are three main elements to consider in landscape architecture:
Line – Landscape architecture uses this to carry the eye throughout the landscape and to create connectivity and flow.
Form – These are the shapes in the landscape and can include the rectangles of the home and driveway, the circles of the trees and bushes, and other shapes.
Mass – This is the space that is occupied by the object in the landscape, such as the patio, planting bed, or individual trees.
By considering these, we can create a beautiful landscape that will make you proud of your outdoor living space.
