Maintaining Your Investment

Everyone knows that first impressions are everything.  Here at Lifescape, we understand that homeowners invest time, research, and money into their landscaping, but what happens after the work is complete? Maintaining your investment is a must. People today have such busy lives and finding the time to maintain this investment properly by themselves is nearly possible. This reason and many others can indicate that professional maintenance of the property is an essential investment.

 

Knowledge is keyMaintaining Your Investment

Most of us do not have degrees or certifications in the horticulture business. You don’t need that knowledge to be able to hire a professional who is fluent in all of those areas. We offer trained crews that are led by horticulturists. Our company’s goal is to maintain a healthy environment by keeping in mind such things as our harsh Colorado environment and its effect on certain plant life, conditions of the soil, and what nutrients are vital in providing optimal growth for your turf, trees, and plants.

Save money and water

Maintaining Your Investment

 

Our climate may be harsh at times so we should all be dedicated to conserving water. Proper maintenance includes irrigation practices and techniques that save you money on your water bills and more efficiently conserve water resources. Keeping up with new technology and best practice irrigation techniques such as ET watering systems allows us to ensure your plantings and turf are properly watered.

 

Quality over Quantity

Maintaining Your Investment

No matter how large or small your landscaped areas may be, you want to ensure the quality maintenance of your investment. Trying to do this yourself will not only prove to be stressful but can be destructive to your plant health and costly down the road. The improper use of pesticides, fertilizers, and even yard tools can cause plant death, groundwater contamination, the spread of fungus in the landscape and improper and unhealthy plant growth.

Remodel? How about Curb Appeal?

When you are looking to remodel your home, do not forget to incorporate curb appeal. Accentuating the outside appearance of your home is just as important as updating the inside. If your renovations are derived from the motivation to sell your home, outside revamps are enough to catch the eyes of potential buyers and make them want to look inside as well.

 

Curb Appeal Maintenance is Key

We tend to let our horticulture grow freely and in some instances, get a little out of control. This is a rather easy fix. Trimming back shrubs will offer a neat and tidy look. Make sure to prune tree limbs that are starting to grow towards or blocking your residence. This is important especially for trees that bear flowers and fruits, and it promotes healthy regrowth in the spring and summer months.

Raking, weeding, spreading new mulch in plant beds, and removing moss and leaves from your hardscapes are other simple maintenance techniques that can improve your overall curb appeal for the upcoming spring months.

 

Curb AppealBrighten Up Your Space

Bright and beautiful, that’s the motto for spring. Look into adding some brightly colored annuals to your freshly maintained yard. When it comes to trees and shrubbery, evergreens are a popular choice due to year round color and easy maintainability. Evergreens actually come in a variety of hues from light greens to soft blues that will suit any creative vision. You’ll want these stunning changes to turn heads even in the dark, so don’t forget about lighting. Adding outdoor lighting for walkways or even to showcase your new floriculture can provide a touch of charisma to the exterior of your home.

Out with the Old and In with the New

You will want to replace or repair any broken or weathered hardscapes. Don’t have any hardscapes? The addition of permeable surfaces and elegant borders between your flowers and lawn can help you obtain a sharp and cleaner look.

 

 

For assistance with these inventive changes or your own artistic landscaping concepts, our excellent team of professionals would love to assist you with the creation, construction, and maintenance of your very own green-life landscape.
