The planting plan includes an assortment of native understory trees such as dogwood, shrubs such as azalea, and a variety of flowering plants including bluebells and hostas.

If you are wishing for a "quiet space" in your backyard, the first step is to decide where it will fit into the overall fabric of your yard. A landscape architect can help you organize your outdoor environment, divide it into separate but related areas, and assign each a specific functional purpose.

Landscape enhancement crew members Sergio Alcantara & Josue Rodriguez are removing an invasive weed called Lesser Celandine throughout a wooded natural area that our client uses as a peaceful, meditation zone. Although lesser celandine is an attractive leafy green plant with yellow flowers, it prevents native species from getting started in the spring by gobbling up nutrients and shading out other flora before they have a chance to emerge. What's left is mostly bare ground until the following spring when celandine repeats its destructive lifecycle.

Spring Landscaping Enhancements: Privacy Screening

Our Garden Management crewman are installing "Green Giant" Arborvitae to create a "living wall" that will instantly improve the homeowners' sense of privacy in their yard. The process of moving these large trees into position can be a bit messy. So the final step is always a quick power wash on the driveway once the trees have been set in place.

Garden Manager & Certified Horticulturist John McLeod oversees cutbacks to 'hydrangea paniculata'. This cultivar can be pruned in spring because it is a summertime bloomer. We hold off on spring blooming varieties of hydrangea such big leaf and oak leaf until their bloom cycle is completed and they’ve begun to leaf out.

The cutbacks may look severe but they actually invigorate the plant to flush out with new growth as well as build a robust limb structure.
