Artificial Grass

Artificial grass or “fake grass” has gained lots of popularity in the greater Houston area in recent years. It is the perfect solution for shady yards that cannot grow healthy grass. Many people also choose fake grass because it keeps a yard always looking green without the maintenance or water involved in regular grass. There are several different synthetic turfs designed for any landscaping need. The three types are Pet Turfs, Landscaping Turfs, and Sport Turfs. Each kind of artificial grass includes unique features making it suitable for any homeowner’s needs. Houston Landscape Pros is committed to using the best quality product from local companies that manufacture in the U.S. and offer the best warranties.To learn more by visit our page on Artificial Grass, or schedule landscaping quote and ask about our synthetic turf options!

Why Does Tree Trimming helps the Landscape?

Some homeowners may neglect tree trimming because they think it will save them money. They may also believe that this service is not critical. However, in reality, giving your trees a regular trim is an investment in their health and longevity. In fact, it will also help your grass and plants because it provides them with more sunlight. Also, maintaining the structure of the tree helps to mitigate the risk of broken limbs and falling branches. Moreover, structural pruning can significantly improve the general look of the tree. In addition, trees in your front or backyard add beauty and value to your property. Therefore, maintenance is essential to protect that value.

If you feel tempted to skip regular tree trimming services, take a moment to consider all the reasons why you should resist it. Below are three reasons why Houston Landscape Pros recommends tree trimming. To learn more about tree trimming or removal, click on the tree trimming link.

Why Is Landscape Design Important:

Firstly, the landscape design is crucial to any landscape project because it demands significant forethought for best execution. Secondly, plants are living beings that demand an understanding of their upkeep. Thirdly, the landscape design includes not only the flowerbeds and grass but all elements of a yard. To name a few key features, hardscapes, landscape drainage, and underground watering systems are all parts of the design. Thus, you have to consider the interplay of these different elements carefully.

Experienced landscapers will dedicate careful thought to the landscape design. They use their expertise to include features in their design that the average person would not consider. For your consumer benefit, the experts at Houston Landscape Pros are sharing several tips to consider in your landscape design. Included below are three pro tips.

First Tip: Ask Yourself the Right Questions

There are endless possibilities for your landscape design. With countless ideas for your front yard or backyard landscape, we recommend narrowing the options. Asking yourself a few questions from the start will help bring the vision together easier. The items below will help you target the right elements for your landscape design. We include factors ranging from lifestyle to specifics of the property to outdoor living preferences and more.

What’s my lifestyle like?

  • Do you love entertaining guests in your backyard?
  •  Is the Kids in the home?
  • Are there Pets?
  • Time to dedicate to maintenance, or are you a busy bee?

These questions will help determine what kind of plants to buy, what products to use, and which hardscape elements to use. For example, if you do not have time for yard upkeep, but want a green yard, consider artificial grass. However, the type of fake grass you should purchase would depend on whether you have dogs or kids. Another example could be how often you entertain guests. If you tend to have friends on your property regularly, you may want to enlarge your space. If you would like to extend the availability of your outdoor space, then well-placed landscape lighting would help tremendously.

What is the size of my property?

Knowing the size of your property upfront will make the planning process go smoothly. After identifying which landscape elements to implement, the size will determine the rest in the design. Use your property survey to help plan your patio, outdoor kitchen, pool, playground, or even lawn sprinkler system.

Does my property need landscape drainage?

Landscape drainage is one thing that many people put off, but it should be the number one concern if required. Landscape drainage is especially crucial for homeowners in the Houston area. Firstly because Houston frequently floods. Secondly, because we tend to experience hurricanes. With this in mind, it is good to consider installing landscape drainage. We can install French Drains or Catch Basins to stop foundation issues or flooding. Also, proper drainage prevents excessive moisture in your garden beds. In conclusion, ensuring your property is protected is a good idea to ensure your landscape design lasts.

What direction is my house facing?

Knowing what direction your house faces is critical. This fact determines whether your lawn will receive full sun, partial sun, or shade. Since plants have varying sunlight needs, this knowledge will dictate what plants to install.

What plant zone is Houston TX?

Many people may not know that the greater Houston area is composed of multiple plant zones. Therefore, knowing your yard’s zone location will help determine what plants can flourish in your yard.

 

Second Tip: Know Your Budget

It is vital to know the budget of the landscape project before starting. Above all, it will dictate what landscape elements you can afford. Having a landscape professional assess your property will help you identify everything you may need to include in the budget. If they identify drainage problems or other issues, you will need to factor the cost of these items first. It is tempting to spend money first on the beautifying aspect of the landscape. However, we recommend budgeting for essential functionality aspects first. This provision will ensure that your future front and backyard will be long-lasting and protected. For this reason, it is helpful to budget anything else in the landscape design according to your priorities.

Third Tip: Create Design in the Proper Order

Most of us visualize a beautiful landscape that includes all the fun elements of landscape design. This vision may range from flowers, the patio, the fountains, the pergola, and more. To efficiently plan, it is good to start by envisioning the yard’s end result. However, the installation should begin in the following order. Firstly, landscape drainage, then grass or a patio, sprinklers, plant beds, and lastly, landscape lighting.

First: We begin with landscape drainage if it is necessary for your property. This process requires trenching and removing sod. As you can imagine, this is a messy process. Hence, we do this first to avoid ruining any other landscape elements implemented.

Second: Decide which hardscape elements to include: patios, pavers, or grass. We must determine the hardscape’s location before planning the sprinkler system placement or plant installations.

Third: Make up once mind whether your area needs a sprinkler system. Now that you know where the patio or artificial grass will be planning the underground watering system can begin. Next, place sprinkler heads accordingly.

Fourth: Plan out which plants you would like to use as well as their location. Remember to place each plant where they can receive enough sunlight and water. Lastly, add any landscape lighting. Since we use light to showcase different plants, we must install landscape lighting last. Several fixtures can work to accommodate the plant’s height and width for the best visible effect. Landscape lighting is also the last part of the installation process because the installation is practically surface level. This fact makes it harmless to the other aspects of your landscape project.
