Installing a Thematic Garden
Installing a new garden can be a large undertaking–even if your grounds constitute a small space. Adding a new garden to your home can transform your landscape and enhance your enjoyment of your property. Deciding what type of garden to install can be a challenge as each type comes with its own considerations that range from maintenance level to climatic factors. No matter what type of garden you opt for, we can help you install elements that include hardscape features, large plantings, garden structures, and more.
An edible garden requires lots of attention, but it will serve your kitchen well. A vegetable or herb garden requires good soil, sunlight, and ample water–but that’s not the whole story. When installing your edible garden, you might want to think about added fencing to protect it from wildlife. You might also want to create raised garden beds that may be easier for you to tend. For large edible gardens, you might wish to install an irrigation or watering system to ensure that your plantings get the hydration they need to thrive.
Many homeowners want to attract wildlife to their property. Many types of plantings and garden designs will attract animals. First, you’ll need to consider what types of creatures you want to attract. Some popular options include butterflies, hummingbirds and other bird types, and beneficial pollinating insects. Planting trees and shrubs can be a substantial task. We can help you get these plantings in the ground and ensure that they get the good start they need.
An Asian-inspired garden is a great way to create a tranquil, soothing setting where you can go to relax after a busy day. There are many popular Japanese garden styles that include classical tea gardens and Zen gardens. It’s commonplace for Japanese gardens to include hardscape features like rock pools and wood-planked decking. You might even want to add a structure such as a bamboo screen or fence or an outbuilding like a small tea room or Asian-style gazebo.
Water gardens take many shapes and forms. Depending on the size of your property and your level of ambition, you might want to install a substantial water feature like a large pond or cascade. If you have a slope on your property, a cascade or waterfall is a great way to make use of the space. On the other hand, you can create a small, localized water garden to house water lilies or even koi. Consider installing a small basin or pond off the edge of your patio. You can also add a water feature such as a wall fountain or stand-alone fountain. We can help you source and install the materials you need.
A thematic garden will add both beauty and enjoyment to your home. Think about the level of care you’d be willing to commit to your landscape when deciding what type of garden to install. Adding a new garden requires lots of heavy lifting and earth moving. Be sure to contact us so we can help.
