Troubleshooting Common Landscaping Problems

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Tuesday, 10 October , 2023

Homeowners are constantly being confronted with landscape issues that are too complicated or difficult for them to handle alone.  Unfortunately, many people believe that it is their own fault that they cannot fix their landscaping issues.  They believe that if they just worked a bit harder or read a bit more, they could solve the problem.  Sometimes, it is not that easy!  A homeowner may need the help of a professional landscape designer to solve some common issues that plague many yards and gardens.

Here are a few examples of things that homeowners often struggle with and require assistance from a professional landscape company.

  • Pest infestations. When pests invade your yard, it can be difficult to know the best method to get rid of them.  Often, pests are resistant to certain types of chemicals, so using them may only harm your yard’s ecosystem and even spread dangerous toxins to others nearby.  Instead of relying on chemical treatments, an experienced landscape design and maintenance company can help you choose natural, organic pest control methods to keep your yard healthy and free of insects, rodents, and other animals.
  • Design flaws. If your yard is not designed well, no amount of planting, lighting, or accessories will make up for it.  Often, a simple change in the basic design of your yard can open up new worlds of possibilities for form and function.  With the help of a professional landscape designer, you may find ways to utilize your space that you never imagined!
  • Grading issues. If water does not drain properly from your yard, your home’s foundation, driveway, and other structures may soon suffer.  Grading is a very important issue that underlies your foundation, walls, walkways, and driveway, so be sure to have your yard’s grading checked out by a professional if there is a problem.
  • Irrigation problems. When you cannot effectively water your plants, your yard will never look its best.  Even if you choose low-water species, you will still need an irrigation plan.  Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to water without expensive outlays.  By choosing the right irrigation system, you can easily provide abundant water for your yard at a low cost.  With the help of a professional landscape designer, you will soon have a beautiful, lush, and abundant yard that is healthy, well-watered and conserves precious resources while saving you money and time.
  • Planting choices. Choosing the right plants for the areas your yard provides is a skill that must be developed.  With the help of a professional landscaper, you can make good plant choices that fit your time and money budgets so that you get more beauty and enjoyment out of your yard for many years to come.

    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
