Your property is an investment, and the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it. This idea is the same whether we’re talking about a commercial property or a residential property. A well-maintained landscape not only creates a great experience for anyone going by; it also raises the value of the property itself. That is why directing resources toward your landscape is well worth it. The thing is, if you’re going to pay for a sprinkler system, new sod, or a water feature, you need the work to last. Otherwise, you can end up with expensive complications. People can tell when your landscaping was done by somebody who didn’t really know what they were doing, and this has unfortunate implications whether you own a business or a home.

Signs You Need a Landscaper

Whether you avoid mowing your lawn or you’ve got a strong green thumb and you’re always out in the yard, there are moments in everyone’s life when they need a professional to sweep in and do what they were trained to do. In today’s blog, we’re going to share some of the signs that it’s time to give us a call in Castle Rock!

Your landscaping has no variety.

  • Maybe the last person who owned your home or business really, really loved junipers, and you’re tired of looking at the same plant every day. This is definitely a sign that you need to give us a call. While consistency is important for creating movement and unity in a landscape, variety is the spice of life. Every landscape is an opportunity to create interest and intrigue that pleases the eye, and our professional landscape designers can give you the results you need.

You’re finding pooled water in the wrong places.

  • One of the most important things your landscaping does is something people don’t think about: moving water away from your home or business. Water is any structure’s enemy, and if your landscaping doesn’t do its job, you can end up with water pooling in your basement or on your patio. If you’re seeing water hanging out where it shouldn’t be, your landscaping isn’t doing its job. Contact our experts, who will likely be able to spot the problem a mile away and get everything back on track.

Your landscaping is unlit at night.

  • Many people settle for a light by their front door and maybe a post light on the street. This isn’t optimal at all. Unlit landscaping not only prevents it from being enjoyed at night; it also makes your property less secure. A dark landscape makes it easier for someone to approach your house or business and its windows. The brighter a landscape is, the greater the deterrent to anyone with bad intentions. When you contact our experts for landscape lighting, we will carefully assess your property, your needs, and your budget to provide efficient, safe lighting. We’re not here to light up your property like the Fourth of July (unless you want us to). Instead, we provide practical security benefits as well as enhanced beauty with our energy-efficient landscape lighting systems!

Turn to Us in Castle Rock

At Mountain West Landscaping, we have seen what sub-par landscaping can do to homes and businesses. It not only brings them down, it can affect their security. A building with its windows blocked by shrubs that someone thought would be nice but are way too tall puts everyone inside at risk. Water features that have been improperly plumbed can cost owners tons of water and cause damage to foundations. Landscape lighting and design are beautiful arts, but they must be done right. Doing things right is our passion. Contact us in Castle Rock today!
