Let us help Design & Install your Dreams!
Kiefer Landscaping offers the very best in computer landscape design and installation. The attention to detail goes far above the landscape industry standards. Your personally customized plan will include, to scale, anything on your property that is involved in the area of the project (house, deck, existing walkways, driveways, trees or shrubs that would stay, etc..). All new products, placed into the plan, will also be to scale and demonstrate the exact look that we are trying to achieve. Our superior landscape designers will work with you to build a plan that has our expert guidance, but with your personal touches. Upon reviewing your plan you will be able to visualize what your property can look like.
Whether you are wanting to revamp an existing landscape or looking for something totally new, we will help give you exactly what you are looking for. Kiefer Landscaping has transformed many ordinary homes into beautiful showcases just by adding or changing the front landscape, back garden, or landscape beds or berms throughout the property. We do this by adding the highest quality of trees, shrubs, perennials, boulder accents, natural stone, dry stacks, windsor stone walls, brick paver edging, decorative rock or mulch and much more.
You will be impressed every step of the way, from the way the crew lays out the project, the quality of their work, the way they clean up the site each and every day, and most importantly, the final picture of your new installation!
Should you hire a professional landscaping company or not? You have to weigh the pro's and con's, and use some common sense. You have to ask yourself some important questions first.
- Is this my first landscaping project?
- Am I planning on doing a little area or a big area?
- Do I understand such technical things as drainage, pitching and so on?
- What kind of plants work best for what I want to do?
- Do I understand how plants work together in landscaping?
- Do I want only flowers, or flowers and shrubs, or flowers and trees, or all of the above?
- What kind of landscaping would be best for my lifestyle?
- How much work and time do I want to put into working in my yard?
There is a lot of information you would need to know if you want your landscaping to last a long time. One good rain storm could wash away all of your hard work. It's better to go to professionals that make it their life's work. To get the most out of your garden, you need to research the type of plants you would like to implement into your garden. By hiring a professional you can rest easy knowing that you have knowledgeable people designing your landscape. Some plants flower all summer long. Some only in spring, early summer, late summer and fall. Do you know which is which?
Shrubs and flowers need to be planted in accordance to their height and spread. Some plants grow taller than other so they do need to be planted accordingly. Some of your plants are ground covers that spread along the ground, so those would most definitely need to be planted in the very front of your landscape or they would never be seen and probably die. Make sure your landscapers are taking time, preparation and research before they start planting.
You may not like spending the money on a professional landscaping company, but if landscaping is not done properly, you could end up with some serious consequences. To give you one of the worst case scenarios; if you have landscaping done around your house and the pitch for drainage is incorrect, this could cause foundation damage to your home, leaving a very costly bill.
If you hire a professional landscaper, they should understand all the techniques to avoid these kinds of situations. But please make sure you get references, do some checking on their other completed projects, and check with Federal and local business resources on their qualifications. We are talking about your home here, and you need to protect it and keep it safe. If you do make a decision on a professional landscaping company, you can rest assured that Kiefer Landscaping will make all the appropriate choices in regards to your home.
