There is More to Landscaping than Just the "Trim"

We all know about the typical lawn trimming services that consist of a few men, a few lawn mowers, and a few weed-eaters. Nowadays it’s all about “mow the lawn as fast as possible” and move on to the next. Where have all the true landscapers gone? Where is the creativity in a 15 dollar lawn trim? Designing a landscape that demands appreciation should be like creating a composition of line and color to a canvas which culminates in art. As with art, a great landscape design consists of three stages: planning, execution, and admiration.

Planning the perfect landscape design involves a lot of creativity. There are always obstacles to conquer such as layout of the land, unknown weather patterns, and unforeseen material upgrades. Thinking ahead, being flexible, and planning for all circumstances are just a few aspects of creativity. It always helps to have innovative landscapers readily available, such as those at Envy Exteriors in The Woodlands.

Execution is where the rubber-meets-the-road in landscape design. In order to pull off the ultimate outdoor environment, you have to have the best landscapers around who will work tirelessly until the job is done right, perfectionists so to speak. And don’t think that logistics aren’t key when executing a grand landscape design. Everything from ordering material, to planting a garden, to irrigation installation has to be done in a fashion that resembles a well-oiled machine.

When all is said and done, the landscape design is judged by the admiration it receives. Sure, nowadays people can be jaded from time to time by all the nice yards they see on T.V. or magazines. But there is really something to say about a yard that makes all other yards around it look like office ficus. Yard envy is the highest form of flattery in the world of landscaping. When maximum effort is put into designing a landscape, admiration from neighbors and by-passers alike is sure to follow.

The secret to success in life is how hard you are willing to work in order to achieve it. There is no difference when it comes to creating the ultimate outdoor environment. Timely planning and flawless execution must be applied in order to obtain a yard that can be revered. So break away from that 15 dollar lawn mower guy and design a landscape that is worthy of being envied.
