Shreckhise Landscape and Design Custom Commercial Landscaping enhances your building, retail complex or subdivision. Jim and Trent Shreckhise take a hands-on approach to landscaping. Have peace of mind by dealing directly with the owners of a third-generation family-run business in the valley. We first worked with Jim Shreckhise in 2005, shortly after buying our 200 year old farm and buildings in Rockbridge County. Jim has designed a landscape plan that has incorporated our ideas with his considerable knowledge of Virginia's native plants in order to truly highlight the historic beauty of our property.
Think of the foundation planting as you would for the perfect setting for a beautiful painting that enhances its natural beauty. Omitting a lawn is not just for areas where water conservation is essential. Lawn-less front yards will not suffer when water prices rise as supply decreases. Plus, there's no need for lawn care, which eliminates the cost of a gardener. That means more time to enjoy your outdoor living spaces all summer.

The large gardeners and the orange container in the background draw the eye to the back of the landcape that makes you look taller. Figure 19 - 7. The rhythm of the use of white astilbe and hostas draws you repeatedly in the garden and in this way. Figure 19 - 8. The silver leaves of this blue star genie are accented against the autumn color of Japanese maple leaves. We usually use paper or a computer to create a landscaping plan. When we implement the plan, we build a three-dimensional space in which people engage.
If you own a home, you probably did some landscaping. You probably have a lawn, and maybe some trees, shrubs or a garden. You also probably have a fence around all or part of your property. Did you know that these items can be covered by your home insurance policy? How much does it cost to replace a tree struck by lightning, or even simply to remove the debris from your garden? This can be very expensive and it's not what most of us think before it happens.
Use plants of the appropriate size and habit to avoid constant size. Use mulch to control weeds. See Mulch for the landscape (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg251). Group the trees in large, self-mulched beds for natural areas. Use fences and other hardscape elements to control the wild appearance of some native people. Sometimes, a structural element is all that is needed for a more neat look. Look at existing drainage patterns. Use ditches, dry wells, French drains, dry creek beds, berms and low retention areas to slow the movement of water and allow water to be retained on site , where the plants can absorb it.
