Landscaping Introduction

While nearly every Northern Maine household does some landscaping, few end up with the results they hoped for. In almost all neighborhoods, truly magnificent landscapes are hard to find.

The Northern Maine landscaping profession is segmented into 3 fields; therefore, knowing what all fields specializes in is important when choosing which company or firm best fits your needs.

Lawn care companies specialize in raking, edging, mowing, seeding, and otherwise caring for the grassy areas of your yard.

Landscape maintenance firms are primarily employed to conduct regular maintenance of shrubs and flowerbeds.

Landscape construction firms handle landscape construction and planting under the leadership of a landscape designer. This final group carries out a vast assortment of jobs including patios, fountains, rock gardens, etc.

A good Northern Maine landscape designer can help you incorporate all kinds of aesthetic and functional considerations into an overall plan that achieves the results that you wish for. There are many goals when considering landscaping work, such as attracting birds, impressing neighbors, or constructing outdoor recreation areas for children. A landscape designer can aid you in organizing all of your goals together so that the yard really works. An option for homeowners working on a limited budget is to hire a designer who can help you execute the plan in phases spread over various seasons. A large number of homeowners who perform their own landscaping wind up redoing parts of it many times in anticipation of producing the right look without creating a maintenance headache. A designer is frequently a good choice so he/she can aid you in developing an approach that does not waste your time and money.

Today there are more options than ever to receive assistance with design ideas. There are books and computer-based design tools with information and ideas on each facet of the landscaping process. You can get magnificent ideas from home improvement and remodeling shows as well as magazines. In addition, most Northern Maine home centers and nurseries now offer free design help.
