New planting design to reduce maintenance requirements



Changing an existing labour-intensive planting scheme with lots of colour to a low-maintenance composition that still provides year-round colour can be a challenge, but it can be done! Select evergreen plants with colourful foliage, use ground covers to suppress the weeds and replace seasonal bedding plants with a more permanent arrangement of tough shrubs that flower for long periods.


Design for a front yard with an existing path



To create an attractive outdoor space it is not always necessary to remove all existing vegetation and other elements. It may be easier to start with a clean slate since you have more options, but often it is more cost effective to work with what you have and possibly change existing features or the way they relate to the rest of the space to make them more practical or aesthetically pleasing.
