Private Landscape is adept at designing and installing a variety of landscape options. For a more detailed approach, we can even render professional landscape drawings/plans to capture all elements of the design before installation begins. Let us build a contrasting or coordinated garden for you. Whether you need a small lawn change or an entire property makeover, Private Landscape is prepared to grow your dreams.
New Plant Installation
The addition of new plants designed to flourish in your particular yard breathes new vitality into your surroundings. Just the right trees, shrubs, and ground cover make all the difference. We can also transplant existing plant material to a more suitable area within your property. Private Landscape’s philosophy is simple: take the time and make the effort up-front to do it right. We install all plants, shrubs and trees into holes twice the size of the root balls to allow plenty of room for appropriate growth. Then organic soil and fertilizers are amended into the soil for optimal plant nutrition. Lastly, the plants are watered in and ground cover is placed around them to properly insulate from both hot and cold temperatures as well as help retain moisture at the root systems. Private Landscape is happy to meet with you to discuss your landscape vision, create a workable plan together, and enhance the beauty of your property.
Do you want a beautiful burst of color to enjoy throughout the season? Private Landscape recommends the installation of Annual flowers for both the Spring and Fall seasons each year. We can tailor your annual plantings to shaded areas or full sunlight. Whatever your needs, these plants provide a fresh, colorful palette for your property and brighten the dreariest day. Contact us for recommendations today. Our annual flower installations always include the incorporation of soil amendments and fertilizers, and a finishing application of mini pine bark nuggets.
The installation of sod is a wonderful landscape component that instantly improves the aesthetic appeal of your yard. We install high-quality sod including Bermuda, Centipede, Zoysia (Emerald, Meyers, Zenith) and Fescue. The right kind of sod is determined by a variety of factors including the amount of sunlight able to reach it and the look you’d like to achieve. Below are more details regarding our more popular sods.
Fescue is a grass better suited for cooler weather. It provides a beautiful green blanket throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons, but tends to die out in the heat of the summer. As a result, Fescue typically requires overseeding in the Fall to ensure the green grass regenerates each year. Fescue is maintained at a higher level of four-inches (4”) tall, and can thrive in sun or shade.
Zoysia is considered a warm season turf. In the warmth of Spring, Summer and early Fall, Zoysia creates a lovely green carpet. In the cooler weather, Zoysia becomes dormant. When the warmth comes again, new growth sprouts through the dormant grass and the green carpet is renewed. It requires scalping and dethatching in the Spring to allow room for the new growth. Zoysia is maintained at a level of 1-1/2 to two inches in height. The differences in Zoysia include the width of the grass blade and the depth of its green color. Zoysia tolerates shade better than other grasses, with some Zoysia varieties outperforming others in shady areas.
Bermuda turf is also considered a warm season turf. This particular grass is popular for Athletic fields due to its forgiving nature and ability to handle significant foot traffic. We typically install the Bermuda Tifway 419 brand of grass for its durability and powers of regeneration. Bermuda performs best in full sun. Bermuda turf is maintained at a level of 1-1/2 to two inches tall.
Let us assess your property and recommend appropriate sod for your particular environment.
