Three benefits of landscaping: Economic, Environmental, and Lifestyle....

Sustainable landscapes are an investment and begin from the ground up. Ensure the success of your landscape projects. Take this Smart Start Checkup:

R Confer with a professional when developing your design.

A landscape architects or designer can work with you to maximize your property’s natural potential which will save you dollars in the long run.

R Have your landscape design installed by a professional company.

LNS recommends hiring a company that has a Certified Horticultural Technician on staff, obtaining three written quotes, asking for references from all contractors and ensure they have a Workers’ Compensation Board Clearance Letter and proof of Liability Insurance.

R Maximize on site soils and include at least six inches of settled top soil /

compost mixture in your landscape installation. Soil depth is a direct link to water retention, plant health and pest prevention.

R Understand what warranties will be covered on your landscape materials.

Plant and sod are living materials that require regular watering and maintenance. Ask your building contractor and landscape designer what conditions apply.

R Consider biodiversity of native plants and hardscape features in your design.

There are so many design options available that lead to healthy and sustainable landscapes. Explore the possibilities with your designers.

The Landscape Industry Associations has very specific specifications for sodding, seeding, trees

Be sure to look for this logos.
