Remember the days when flared pants, crop tops and platform shoes were the things to wear? Well just like clothing fashion garden fashions have come and gone too!
It seems not that long ago that people planted large lawns (water was a cheap commodity once) with maybe a feature shade tree and a few marigolds (to a give splash of colour). Well today it seems that our options of plants, garden structures, garden ornaments, groundcover mulches and pebbles are endless.
However people are very conscious of the environment and of course their water consumption, but still want to create an attractive appearance to their pride and joy their home. For most of us our home will be the biggest investment we will ever make, so it's only right that we should want to make it an attractive place, not just for us but for our neighbours and visitors. A good first impression when they come over! Nothing wrong with a little home pride? The other consideration of course is the added financial value of a well presented home with good street appeal. For many of us pottering about in the garden keeping the lawns mowed trees trimmed, etc is a source of great pleasure, as well as keeping us fit and healthy, it's also therapeutic. However the biggest enemy can be simply time! Let's face it, who wants to tackle a large landscaping project inthe small amount of free time our busy lives give us?
This of course has created an opportunity for a service industry to grow, providing a professional approach to design and construction of residential and commercial gardens. Building gardens that have become easier to manage and sustainable, that can be enjoyed all year round as well as increasing value to your investment in terms of lifestyle and finance.
As someone who celebrates his 26th year in the landscaping industry, I have seen many of the garden trends that have come and gone. One thing that remains in demand though is something called service! It means when you say you will come around to discuss a future project, or to start a project you will show up! I have a motto and it's "if you show up you will get the work" and after 26 years I have never been out of work! Service means listening to the client to find out their dreams and aspirations and then suggesting a few creative thoughts into the mix to create a practical stylish outdoor environment that is a pleasure to be in. At a price that is both good value, and conscious of the clients budget. If you are considering creating a new outdoor space for entertaining whether its a new natural or synthetic lawn, a paved patio or driveway, a water conscious garden or retaining garden walls.
