Landscaping doesn't just change the way a district looks, but also how people treat and react to your district, and each other. One of the most powerful ways to instantly transform the street level atmosphere of a district is through the addition of the greenery and color of a landscaping program. Whether it's hundreds of hanging baskets throughout your district or a handful of planters in a central gathering spot, landscaping can instantly change how people feel about and treat their surroundings.
Landscaping services most often include:
- Planting of ground level beds or planters
- Planting and hanging of baskets
- Ongoing watering and fertilizing
- Weeding of beds and ‘dead heading’ of plants
Through our history of serving districts, we’ve become more proficient at not only landscape maintenance but also on the selection and configuration of planted areas. The composition of your landscaping should be well thought out taking into consideration not only seasonality and climate, but more importantly how the creative deployment of flower types and colors can create a unique character through individual parts of your district.
Your investment into your landscaping program is a significant one. Most often the largest cost associated with a landscaping program is not in the plants themselves, but in their ongoing watering and maintenance. Through planning and experience we can help you allocate the right amount of resources to maximize the vibrancy of your landscape program.
