There is a vast array of landscape services Birmingham AL can provide. A quick glance online or in the local newspaper will provide numerous reputable landscape contractors in the area. Many landscape service companies provide a combination of lawn care services and landscape service.
Lawn care services provided by a landscape company will usually include any task that is related to maintaining and grooming turf grass of the lawn. Services like mowing, edging, weed eating, and blowing leaves give the home or business a well maintained, aesthetically pleasing appearance. Aeration lawn treatment is often offered and promotes air flow and increased growth of new grass seedlings. Fertilization services provide the lawn and landscape with proper nutrients that encourage healthy lawns and plant material to grow.
Most landscape service companies offer a variety of landscape options. Many provide design for outdoor spaces, as well as installation. Irrigation services are a worthwhile investment as these systems provide plants, trees and grass with just the right amount of water they need to thrive.
Many landscape contractors install hardscape elements for both residential and commercial properties. Retaining walls address several needs for a property that might have steep areas that are not accessible. Retaining walls can aid in conservation by preventing soil and water loss which leads to erosion. If the property consists of slopes and hills, a retaining wall could free up more space for the homeowner to enjoy by creating tiered areas that can be used for lounging or gardening. These walls can also serve as an opportunity to showcase a focal point on the property. Ask a professional landscape contractor which hardscape services they offer. Patios, pool decks, and concrete installation and repair may also be available.
Pergola design, build, and installation are also provided by many landscape service companies. A pergola is an outdoor room with rafters and no walls. It provides an inviting space for homeowners to relax and visit, or to enjoy a meal. Pergolas add visual interest to outdoor spaces. Many homeowners take advantage of the opportunity to grow flowering or fragrant vines up the rafters and posts of the structure. Pergolas can also provide a shelter from rain, as well as a windbreak. An effective landscape will add value and curb appeal to the property. A dependable and reputable company will provide the consumer an opportunity to sit down and discuss their needs and then provide them with options that will complement their home and property.
