Designing, Building and Maintaining Your Landscape

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 18 May , 2022

There is more to having a beautiful landscape than simply putting in plants and watering.  A good landscape is organic and fluid.  It requires not only planning for the moment but also consideration of the entire sequence of seasons.  How will it look a month from now?  Six months from now?  How can you incorporate irrigation, hardscape, and other functional factors into your design plan?  These are questions that a landscape designer must answer in order to have a plan that covers all aspects of a client’s yard or garden.

The Three Aspects of Landscape 

In reality, there are three major aspects of landscaping.  Many people simply focus on the first two, but the third is equally important.

  • Any great landscape begins with a great plan.  A landscape designer can help you create the perfect mixture of plantings, hardscape, and water or fire features and can position plants so that they benefit most from daily sun.  A good landscape designer can also help you incorporate irrigation so that your yard maintenance becomes easier.  Finally, a good design not only gives you a beautiful look but also speaks to your personal lifestyle, incorporating quiet areas for peace and busier areas for family activities.
  • Once your design is ready, your landscape designer can help you build your dream yard or garden.  Building should be done with high-quality materials, but it should also be done in the right order and incorporate the latest technology to ensure a good final product.  With the right landscape designer, building the structures and areas that your plan calls for will become much easier and ultimately less expensive, in many cases, than trying to do it yourself.
  • After the perfect design has been built, maintenance becomes very important.  Maintenance includes taking care of items each week or month such as watering or weeding, but it also includes taking care of repairs and replacements when needed.  In many cases, good maintenance habits will help your landscape look its best for years to come, but in some instances, it is also important to know when to change or replace items.  This is particularly true for hardscape and other things that may wear out over time.  Of course, rotating out older plants for newer varieties can also help refresh your garden or yard instantly.  Maintenance is one of the most crucial components of having a healthy, beautiful yard.

I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
