The Water Feature Lifestyle - A Growing Investment

Posted by in Waterscapes , Waterfalls , water features , property value , Ponds , pondless waterfall , home value , ecosystem pond , east coast landscape design , Aquascape

Take a look at this great video from Aquascape - The Water Feature Lifestyle - A Growing Investment.

 






"Enhanced landscaping improves property value, and water features make your property stand out from the rest. A Pondless® Waterfall in the front yard provides curb appeal, while a backyard Ecosystem Pond increases a home's value much like a deck, patio, or gazebo. The sound of a water feature will drown out noise from traffic or neighbors. In addition, water features provide an interesting backdrop for entertaining while adding aesthetic appeal to your landscape. Waterfront property is a prized commodity and you can easily incorporate water into your outdoor living space without having to move near a lake or ocean."

Landscape Makeover - New Brick Paver Walkway!

Posted by in low maintenance planting , landscape , home resale value , east coast landscape design , drainage problems , brick paver


Take a look at this landscape makeover we did! This was a old, tired landscape the homeowners wanted  to spruce it up and have something nice. There were drainage problems on the right side of the house, which we corrected by grading and installing a brick paver walkway.

 

These low maintenance plantings added to the beauty and resale value. Since the owners think they may stay in the home for 4-5 years, this is a very important part of the upkeep of their home! 

 

Call East Coast Landscape Design at 301-421-4141 to talk about your own landscape makeover. We are the Washington D.C. area's leading licensed landscaping company, and would love to help with your project!

Fall Planting Tips for Your Landscape

Posted by eastcoastadmin in winter , trees , shrubs , planting , perennials , landscaping , Landscape Design , fall planting , east coast landscape design , bulbs , autumn planting , autumn

Here are some fall planting tips, thanks HGTV!

Remember, contact the experts at East Coast Landscape Design with any questions regarding fall planting or landscape design! Call us at 301-421-4141.

Fall is a great time to plant perennials, bulbs, trees and shrubs. Container plants and balled-and-burlapped specimens usually have well-developed root systems. Because roots don't have to supply nutrients and water to growing stems and new leaves, they can concentrate on getting established. Roots grow - although slowly - even when soil temperature is as low as 40 degrees.

Before you plant, make sure to allow enough time for the roots to get settled in and acclimated before cold weather sets in. If it's well into fall where you live, plant the species that are most easily established - deciduous shrubs and maple, hackberry, ash, thornless honey locust, linden, crabapple, sycamore, hawthorn and horse chestnut trees. Wait until spring to plant the trees that are slow to establish - oak, birch, willow, ginkgo, sweetgum, American yellowwood and American hornbeam. Mulch well to conserve soil temperature (but don't pile mulch around the trunk). In cooler, dry climates, wait until spring to plant broad-leaved evergreens and conifers, to avoid excessive water loss through the foliage and to give them the warmer soil temperatures they need. If you're not sure whether it's safe to plant, check with a local nursery or extension service.

More Planting Tips

Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and other such berries perform best in rich, loose, well-drained soil. Depending on the type of soil you have and whether you need to adjust the pH (blueberries need an acidic soil of pH 4.5 to 5.0), you may want to spend fall preparing the soil and wait until spring to plant.

Plant fruit trees in full sun and away from large shade trees that might take away water and nutrients. You're lucky if you have a north-facing slope. That's the best place to plant fruit trees. The trees will less likely be tricked into flowering too soon by an early spring and more apt to escape a late frost because cold air will fall into lower-lying areas. If you don't have a slope, placing the trees on the north side of a house or barn can help with the too-early bud break problem.

Over the years the advice has changed about how best to plant trees. The current wisdom is to dig a hole no deeper than the depth of the root ball or container but three or four times as wide. In fact, it's even better to dig the hole a couple of inches shallower than the depth of the root ball. Digging a hole that's deeper than the root ball and then filling it partially with backfill before placing the tree invites settling. With a few waterings and a little time, the tree could sink below ground level and this could kill the tree.
