It was easy to communicate with and always available for questions. He was open and honest about our project and worked with us to design a perfect yard in our budget. Tom and the team have built an incredible sunken terrace and a natural gas fireplace. They were always very communicative, respectful and helpful while they were at home. I can not recommend these guys enough for any project big or small. I have a decent sized landscaping job for my new home, and I was very interested in having Absolute Home and Garden go out and give an estimate based on these good reviews.
The way the sun affects the house and the site at different seasons greatly influences the overall design. The proper placement of plants is based on knowing the direction of the sun at different times of the day as well as at different times of the year. The yard should be observed throughout the day to determine areas that receive full sun (more than six hours a day), partial sun, and mostly shade. Understanding sun exposure helps us make design decisions such as planting trees to shade a patio in the summer or recognizing that putting a gargleden in an area that receives only partial sun causes little fruit when it comes time to harvest.
Figure 19 - 34. This small deck expands its seating options by providing a flat wall. A residential landscape includes areas used for different purposes. In this step, we divide the site into several distinct areas, each serving a purpose, but all combined in the overall design. In residential landscapes, three general domains - public, private (family) and service (utility) - are used to organize activities and uses. Each zone is developed to meet the needs and priorities of the user (checklist 19-2). After categorization of activities, we can locate these areas for various uses on the parcel plan.
Make your sound easier than HGTV shows! You need so much to come to my house because I'm so bad with plants. This would make a picture before and after spectacular! For once - someone who does not ring so much easy and fast. We did a little gardening job over the last two weekends. It took about 8 hours to replace a tree and move 3 bushes from the front to the back of the house. Stupid landscaper for the developer put in a tree that has no business planted in the south, and the bushes were not only too big for the area where they were planted But two of them were directly in front of the sprinkler heads so the sprinklerâ € ™ they are themselves ineffective. It pays to do your research, develop a plan, and then check the different variables to see if that plan will actually work.
