Landscape Design and Construction
One of the best parts about owning a home is the ability to take every component of it and make it your own. With our landscape design and construction services, our team at Landscaping Halifax can help you make your backyard and front yard dreams come true. Our landscape designers assist in developing a design that fits with the space’s natural features, creating a plan for executing and installing the components of the arrangement. We provide both the carpentry and installation that hardscaping requires, as well at the knowledge of flora, shrubs and soil that ensure the longevity of your softscape.
Designing a garden from scratch, or working to enhance what’s already on the property, can be a fun project when combined with the knowledge and know-how of our experts. We create new designs based on customer requests, as well as working with existing designs that clients bring to us. Our landscape architects offer helpful tips, including advising which plants will thrive best in which areas of your yard. In designing a landscape, we cover all aspects of the appearance, from textures, colours or desired palettes as well as the land preparation necessary to make sure everything thrives in the environment.
During the construction of the landscape design, we provide all the services and materials necessary to complete the project. We install the appropriate fences or decks that enhance the natural beauty of the space. Our carpentry team works to create bespoke pergolas and trellises that interact with the greenery, creating a garden haven. As part of the customization, we construct sheds, as well as create one of a kind flower boxes and planters that make the garden as unique as the individual who ordered it. We install and design stone fire pits as well as water features with a bridge that take a landscape to the next level.
There are a lot of things that go into designing a softscape aside form simply creating a beautiful aesthetic. Softscapes include the horticultural components of a garden from shrubs and tree planting to sodding and general lawn maintenance. In designing custom softscapes, depending on client requests we seek to enhance or add to the existing environment. This includes the selecting of plants and flowers, as well as advising clients on the areas of a yard in which they will best thrive. As part of our services, we advise clients on the best maintenance techniques that will help their plants flourish during the warm months.
Designing the hardscape of a yard has many facets for both looks and function. In creating the manmade features of a garden, our carpenters and technicians combine their knowledge of drainage and other structural aspects that affect the health of the garden with the decor selected by clients. Our hardscape includes all types of manufactured elements from stone patio design, to garden walls and stone fire pits. However, in conjunction with these aesthetic components, we design hardscape that serves vital functions like retaining walls and garden walls that aid in erosion control, or stone deck tiles that level a space for proper irrigation.
