A Kernersville Landscaping Firm Creating Captivating Designs
Generally, owning a home requires necessary upkeep. Often, homeowners must hire professionals to repair plumbing, electrical, or heating systems. However, with regards to landscaping, many homeowners choose to undertake projects rather than hire a professional. Frequently, the project doesn’t quite turn out as anticipated and ends up costing more. Yet, hiring a Kernersville landscaping contractor can save you time and money with stunning results.
Often, professional landscapers can buy products in bulk or at wholesale prices. Landscape contractors can then pass these savings on to you. Your time is valuable too. A landscaper can complete your project much quicker than you can. Plus, a landscaping company will have all the necessary equipment.
Notably, Landscape Solutions & Design, Inc. has been serving the Piedmont Triad area since 2005. Whether you have a home or a business, we can create an outdoor space you love.
What Does Kernersville Landscaping Services Incorporate?
The term landscaping is vague and can include a wide range of services. Lawncare, grading, hardscapes, and irrigation services all fall within the scope of landscaping projects. However, not all landscapers have the same education, experience, or equipment to perform all types of work. As you begin your search for a landscaper, you need to define the services you require.
Begin by focusing on what you like and what you dislike about your yard. From there, decide on how you plan to use the yard. Do you have children and need a play area? Perhaps, you need a garden area to grow your food. Or, maybe you want to entertain outdoors more often. Once you’ve decided on the essentials, you can begin your search for a contractor.

- Lawn care

Of course, prices for projects depend upon the uniqueness of your yard and the scope of your project. That’s why we offer a free no-obligation consultation.
Why Is It Important To Hire A Professional?
Usually, a great looking yard just doesn’t happen by chance. Landscapers must skillfully merge different elements to create visual appeal and interest. Moreover, Kernersville landscaping projects have a systematic process to achieve beauty and usability:
First, any landscaping endeavor requires planning. Even just installing a flower bed requires thoughtful consideration of which plants to include. That small plant you purchased may look nice now, but what happens when it reaches full maturity? Additionally, some plants can be aggressive taking over your entire bed. Moreover, soil condition and exposure to sunlight are other factors to consider.
Secondly, you must properly prepare the area. Before you start digging, always call your local utility companies to mark underground lines. Additionally, you may need to grade or remove existing landscaping elements. If you’re installing plants, you may need to improve the soil condition.
Once the area is properly prepared, it’s time to begin installing your new landscape feature. Although some landscaping tasks appears easy, a homeowner can make many mistakes. For example, incorrect planting may result in the slow death of your specimen.
Finally, all landscape elements require some type of maintenance, even hardscapes. For example, settling ground or tree roots can disturb patio pavers. Moreover, loose debris may cause staining. Of course, your plants will need proper watering and fertilizing.
FAQs About Landscaping
Many homeowners have very similar questions when it comes to landscaping their yard. Therefore, we’ve put together some of those more commonly asked ones.
Are Certifications Important?
In North Carolina, landscapers must have a license. However, additional certifications verify the landscaper’s skill and expertise. Certifications also show a commitment to safety, efficiency, and productivity.
At Landscape Solutions, we hold several certifications from reputable institutions in addition to our landscaper’s and NC Pesticide licenses:
- John Deere Landscapes University
- Vista Outdoor Professional Lighting
- Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute
It’s our way of showing you our commitment to excellence in designing, installing, and maintaining your yard.
How Can Texture And Color Theory Apply To Landscaping?
Admittedly, many homeowners believe it’s easy to create a beautiful natural looking space. Simply select a few favorite plants and voilà! Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Landscapers take into account color and textures to complement each other.
For example, bold textured plants command attention. If you use too many, your garden will look chaotic. While using too many finely textured plants will also result in a disorganized mess.
Additionally, the use of certain colors can create feelings of peace or excitement. For instance, cool colors like blue or purples are calming and serene. These colors tend to recede into the scenery making your yard look more spacious. While warm colors such as reds and yellows will catch your attention.
Of course, you need to consider several other landscaping principles such as line, form, proportion, and unity. These foundations of successful landscaping projects separate the professionals from the DIYers.
Will Landscaping Increase The Value Of My Home?
Picture a yard with a scraggly looking lawn, flowerbeds overrun with weeds, and shrubs badly in need of pruning. Now envision a home with a manicured turf, neatly mulched planting areas, with properly pruned trees and bushes. That first impression, also known as curb appeal, can greatly influence the value of your home.
Moreover, Turf Magazine estimates you can increase your home’s original value by a range of 5.5% to 12.7% with landscaping. Typically, the amount of increase is dependent on the type of landscaping project.
