Hardscaping

A well-manicured lawn is a beautiful thing. It brings the wonders of nature to your doorstep and the sweet smell of flowers and foliage to the air. However, a landscape is not just about greenery. Just like in nature, you can incorporate contrasting features like stones to give contrast and depth to your landscape. For those in the West Bloomfield Township who are looking to enhance their property the experts at Elowsky Lawn Services offer professional hardscaping.

What is Hardscaping?

Hardscaping comes in many forms and uses a wide variety of materials. Stone, pavers, concrete and even wood can be used in hardscape constructions. The most well-known versions of this service are retaining walls and pathways.

Retaining walls: A retaining wall is meant to shore up your property to remove a slope and create a leveled and tiered look. Besides giving it a more manicured and interesting appearance, retaining walls are also functional. By removing a slope they combat the possibility of erosion by protecting your flowers and grass from not receiving enough water or nutrients. Due to their ability to safeguard a property, retaining walls increase property value as well as curb appeal.

Pathways: Having a walkway to guide foot traffic protects your lawn and also allows home and business owners to divide their property into, for example, a garden on one side and a recreational area on the other. There are many different ways to create a walkway for your West Bloomfield Township property, including concrete, pavers, stones and more to make both paths and stairs.

Aeration Services for West Bloomfield Township

Aeration is an important step for the health of a lawn. Over time, due to natural watering cycles or outside forces, soil can become compacted. Compacted soil will lead to unhealthy plants and grass as the soil will not be able to provide enough water, oxygen or nutrients to the roots of a plant. Aeration combats this phenomenon by puncturing the ground with small holes that provide the plant access to the needed resources. These small perforations give pathways access to the root system and overtime, while the ground settles, allows the soil to shift and become less compact.

Signs You Need Aeration

Here are some of the signs we ask our West Bloomfield Township clients to look out for when it comes to the health of their lawn:

Patchy grass: If you have patches of dying, unhealthy or thin grass, it may be due to compacted soil. As the grass cannot receive the nutrients it needs to thrive, these signs indicate that the grass is being starved or suffocated.

Water pooling: If after it rains or when you water the lawn, water pool in certain areas this indicates that the soil has poor drainage and is a sign of compacted soil.

Clay soil: If your soil has a thick clay-like consistency then it is probably too dense for water and air to properly reach the root structure of the occupying plant life.

Test with a screwdriver: If you are unsure whether your West Bloomfield Township property could benefit from an aeration service, try this simple test. Take a screwdriver or pencil and try to push it into different parts of your lawn. If it is difficult to press the screwdriver into the earth then it is likely that compaction has occurred.

Creating an Oasis: Three Landscaping Errors to Avoid

A combination of bright, colorful flowers, manicured lawns, symmetrical shrubbery, and exterior décor can all contribute to flawless landscaping. The design you choose for your yard has the potential to elevate your home’s curb appeal, increase your property’s value, and give your place on the street a touch of personal character and style. However, creating and maintaining a beautiful yard has to be done with the right tools, knowledge, and experience. At Elowsky Lawn Services we pride ourselves on providing our customers with impeccable service including design advice and maintenance. When you take caution to avoid common errors along the way, your yard can remain beautiful and timeless.

1. Doing Everything Yourself  

Landscaping isn’t for the faint of heart and it certainly isn’t a one-time task. Many homeowners assume they can plant a few flowers and lay a bit of sod and have themselves a pretty yard. However, this seemingly simply task involves soil testing to find the plants that will grow the most successfully in your local environmental conditions. It also involves regular maintenance such as watering, pruning, weeding, and mowing among other tasks. Trying to undertake the design and care of your yard all by yourself can be overwhelming. Additionally, without the proper tools and experience, tasks such as installing sprinklers and watering systems can be difficult and unsuccessful. At Elowsky Lawn Services we take over all of this work and are a trusted landscaping contractor.

2. Thinking Short-Term  

Rushing to judgment on the plants you choose to use in your yard’s design can be a big mistake. While certain types of trees, flowers, and shrubs may thrive temporarily, they may begin to whither or overpopulate when weather conditions change. If you choose to plant vines or shrubs, keep in mind that without proper maintenance they could quickly become an eyesore or choke out other plants in your yard. When selecting flowers and such, consider how they will appear months from now. We can help you test your soil and select an array of foliage that will remain appealing and beautiful throughout the entire season.

3. Favoring the Front  

Some homeowners are so preoccupied with creating a beautiful and well-manicured front yard that they fail to spend any time in the backyard. Putting sufficient time and effort into both areas can ensure you are satisfied with the curb appeal of your home, but that you also have a private area where you can entertain guests, spend time with your family, and make memories with friends. As a superior landscaper, we can manage the care and maintenance of both your front yard and your backyard to ensure both get the proper care they need.
