Let’s face it, the idea of our dream landscape may not be our current reality. Due to location, climate, and the size of the space you have to work with, there are generally a few hiccups along the way to achieving that perfect landscape. But with every challenge comes a solution and the Topeka lawn care and landscape experts would like to share a few ways in which your current landscape problems can be solved.
Home is located on a busy street
No matter how large and how extravagant the landscape, if you are located on a busy street or intersection, it will take away some of the appeal. Not to mention the constant sound of cars buzzing by that leaves you feeling like you are right in the middle of it all. The best solution to a home located on a busy street is to take advantage of fast growing, dense shrubs. By lining these shrubs around your property you will create a barrier from the sight and sound of cars.
Yard is very small
You may have a very small plot of land which makes it hard to make all of your landscaping dreams come to life. If you are dealing with a lack of space on your property then the best solution is to think functional beauty. By creating multi levels with gardens, steps, and stones you will create an illusion of more space and depth. Also, stick to smaller plants and trees that fit the space rather than large trees and shrubs that will take it over.
Landscape requires a lot of maintenance
One of the biggest mistakes made is choosing plants and shrubs based on what we like the looks of rather than which climate they are best suited for. Quickly, your landscape could become a very high maintenance project that is a lot more than you originally signed up for. So to solve this problem, give us a call. We can help you find the best plants and shrubs that will thrive in your environment with the least amount of maintenance.
You can still have a beautiful landscape no matter what challenges are working against you.
