Natural additions for your landscape
As we strive to spend more quality time outside relaxing in the beauty of nature, the experts at Gerbert & Sons will offer ideas to enhance your property to maximize your experience, including sustainable and eco-conscious options. Properly chosen plantings are a natural complement to any landscape, and our Master Gardeners will advise the best options, including native, drought-tolerant species that will thrive in our current climate and attract valuable pollinators. In addition to in-ground beds, vertical planters bring a new dimension of height and visual appeal to smaller areas, and custom container gardens add color and texture to unexpected spots. Something as small as a birdhouse or two will bring a new source of nature to experience and enjoy as you unwind outdoors.
Hardscaping trends to consider
Break up large lawn expanses with decorative pavers to create an inviting path, directing attention to other areas of your property and illuminate with efficient lighting options for further visual impact. While certainly functional, retaining walls also add dimension and depth, along with providing a contrasting backdrop to showcase flowers and shrubs. Using bricks, stone, or wood, create a unique focal point for your lawn, new seating around a patio area, or a small water feature. If space allows, a wonderful in-ground pool with custom pavers and surrounded with perennials provides months of fun and relaxation right at home. Or perhaps a hot tub is a better fit, with a few screen walls for an oasis of solitude. A well-placed gazebo or pergola brings the welcome relief of shade on sunny days, with vining plants adding color and contrast, creating the perfect retreat to share with family and friends.
