From Ordinary to Spectacular
-- The Landscape Challenge
In Matt's Own Words

     by Matt Stano of Blessed Memory
written in 2016

After 50 years in the landscape business, I can say from first-hand experience that landscaping can transform just about any property from ordinary to spectacular. It can add considerably to the overall value and appeal of a home.

That's why I personally field many calls to answer questions about our services. Here are typical questions and my responses:

Why should I update my landscape?

First, remember that your landscape makes a definite statement about your property -- it is the entryway to your home. When it looks good, people tend to think the inside looks as good as the outside. And secondly, curb appeal can even increase your home's value.

Where do I begin?

  • Look at the size of your plants and ask yourself whether they are so overgrown that they are no longer in scale with your property.
  • Check to see if your plants cover your windows. If so, you may me at the point where plant material is overtaking your house.
  • Remember that even small changes can make a difference. Expanding a flower bed, moving a shrub to a new location, or just adding a few new flowers can give a different appearance and a fresher look. It's like rearranging your furniture or changing the color of your walls.
If you're thinking of big changes, it's important to follow the right order.

First comes hardscaping, then the principle elements (such as trees and shrubs), then filler plants.
  • For hardscaping, there are lots of options to choose from. You can add retaining walls made of blocks and boulders, straight or curved walkways made of manufactured and natural stone or pavers that come in a wide variety of styles, colors and patterns.
  • Trees and shrubs should fit the scale of the property and the space. Selection should be appropriate for the amount of sunlight
  • We also suggest mixing up the plantings. We like to use a mix of evergreens and deciduous plants along with perennials for splashes of color.
  • For bordering, a wide variety of new products can be used to border flower beds for a clean, updated look.
  • And, it's always great to use containers to enhance front entryways where you can have two-, three-, or four-season displays.
