The Best of Garden Maintenance Services
Author Jeff HalperFor a truly unique landscape, you need the best garden maintenance services. At Exterior Worlds, we provide the best by understanding the local terrain and weather, using the best techniques and practices, and always striving to understand your desires and needs.
Expert garden maintenance services are a requirement for a luxury garden. Luxury gardens, such as tropical landscaping or a Zen garden as you might find in upscale residential landscaping, need special attention and knowledge. And not just in the beginning phases, but throughout the lifespan of the garden and throughout all seasons.
What are some of the checklist items you should expect from our highly-regarded garden maintenance services?
- Care for annual flowers. We routinely prune annual flowers to maximize the bloom cycle. In the cold season, we cover them in advance of freeze warnings.
- Mulching services. Mulching is necessary for moisture retention. Proper mulching is even more necessary. For instance, it is important not to put too much mulch on the base of plants, a careless oversight done by some of our competitors that causes plants to struggle to survive.
- Landscape lighting. An integral part of high-end gardens, landscape lighting serves the dual purpose of enlivening the nightscape and providing safety. We can perform the required repairs and maintenance to your system.
- Fencing and gates. Our specialty garden crew can also maintain and repair any automatic driveway gates. Additionally, we can paint and repair the fence and garden gates to maintain proper security and increase the life of your fencing.
- Irrigation systems. Sprinkler systems work best with regularly-scheduled inspections and repair. It is a time-consuming job best done by professionals such as Exterior Worlds who are routinely in the yard and gardens, and thus can spot problems immediately.
- Landscape drainage systems. In Houston, drainage systems are an important infrastructure of most yards. Due to our understanding of engineering and local ordinances, we can design, install and maintained them.
- Specialty services. This category includes such regular duties as inspecting and cleaning the gutters, pressure-washing patios, driveways, sidewalks and other hard surfaces, and tree removal.
In these times of growing ecological awareness, it is important to discuss xeriscaping with whomever you use as your garden maintenance services professional. Exterior Worlds is a proponent of xeriscape (pronounced “zer-a-scape”), which is a type of gardening that minimizes the use of fertilizers and watering via sprinkler systems. The intention behind this gardening philosophy is to use native plants that take naturally to the extant soil and climate—and still look beautiful. You can start out with these plants in a new bed or we can artfully weave them into an existing garden. Any garden style can make use of this technique.
If you currently use a crew that does both your lawn and garden maintenance, keep in mind that you can “un-bundle” those services. You can keep the lawn crew, something you may prefer to do because of favorable pricing or because of loyalty. But then you could hire Exterior Worlds, with our upgraded skillset, for the delicate work required by your gardens.
