Best Residential Landscaping Company in Des Moines
There are so many ways to create and enjoy your home’s outdoor living spaces. Today’s residential landscapes offer a little bit of something for everyone. For most of us, having an outdoor garden or patio area is a welcome retreat from our busy lives, a place to unwind and relax. Still, others derive their greatest enjoyment from entertaining family and friends, cooking and sharing a meal or just spending time with each other in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Maybe you’re not even the outdoors type and you are looking to bring some of your indoor creature comforts to your patio or outdoor living area. Whatever features you are looking for, we are here to help you see it through.
Creating the ideal outdoor space for you and your family requires an understanding of residential landscape architecture, hardscape designs for backyards and most importantly, the expertise to build the landscaping features that you want in your ideal backyard oasis. We have the knowledge and experience to sit down and discuss your residential landscaping ideas and how we help make them a reality.
Finding the right hardscape design ideas that work best for your family and home is an integral part of the residential landscape design plans and services that we bring to the table. Our design and landscaping construction experience is second to none. When it comes to your home and your project, we know the lay of the land and we can guide you through the entire process from design to completion.
So, what is the difference between landscape and hardscape?
Hardscape is a subcategory of landscape. Landscaping comprises softscape features. (These are living components of your landscape like your lawn, trees, bushes, and flowers) And then there are the hardscape features such as your patio or fire pit which is almost always man-made and require some level of construction to install and create them.
Have a project in mind? Here are a few things to consider when planning your next landscaping project:
How active are you and your family? What activities do you and your family enjoy most?
Do you have a space set aside for family games and activities? Depending on the games and activities your family enjoys, there are plenty of fun outdoor yard sports and games to play.
Do you have children? As your children get older family activities may change based on their age level. Are there any landscaping and hardscaping features you could plan for now?
Do you enjoy cooking and entertaining? An outdoor kitchen and patio with a fire pit would be a great way to spend more time with the family and entertain guest while showing off and sharing your culinary skills.
Do you enjoy gardening or just having a garden? While almost everyone can appreciate a beautiful garden, not everyone enjoys the activity of gardening. They just want things to look pretty and could care less about planting, pruning or weeding.
Would an outdoor fireplace or fire pit allow us to enjoy our backyard and patio earlier and later in each season? You bet it would! Just because we experience all four seasons here in Iowa. There’s no reason why we can’t enjoy each others company on the patio late into the season. So fire up the grill, the fire pit or the outdoor fireplace and keep the party going.
Would your family require greater privacy to enjoy our outdoor living experience? It’s sure is a whole lot easier to enjoy yourself when you don’t feel like the whole world is watching. Not that you are trying to hide anything but it’s just human nature that we let our hair down a little bit more in the privacy of our own homes. We should all feel a similar level of privacy in our outdoor living areas.
