Why Your Yard Matters: The Braintree Homeowner’s Guide

A yard is so much more than the patch of grass that separates your front door from the street. Your yard is part of your share in the American dream, a place where you can make a statement about what’s meaningful to you. Some lawns are very traditional. You’ll see lush expanses of carefully mowed green grass edged by manicured hedges and flower beds where every blossom knows its place. These yards speak volumes about the homeowner’s appreciation of the finer things, classic style and an attention to detail in even the smallest things. Some homeowners take great pride and devote tremendous energy into creating this look on their own; others call in their Braintree lawn service to create this exacting style. Other lawns are more whimsical and carefree. Flowerbeds, ornamental plantings and even herb and vegetable gardens share space with children’s swing sets and playhouses. Green grass is important too: it’s important to have your Braintree lawn service plant especially hardy varieties of grass in high traffic areas. Because many children and pets have sensitivities to chemicals, there are all natural landscaping products for fertilizing and pest control available; ask for these to be used if this issue concerns you. Your lawn communicates what type of people live in the home. It’s truly a form of self expression. What do you want to say to the world around you, from the neighbors who see your place every day to random people driving through Braintree? You have the ultimate control over this. Working with your Braintree landscape designer, you can truly have a beautiful yard that represents everything you...

Dream Season Starts Now: Massachusetts Yard & Garden Plans

After a long, dry summer, we’ve enjoyed the jewel tone exuberance of a Massachusetts autumn. The leaves are whirling in the wind and the temperature drops a little more each day. You know what that means: it’s time to head indoors and start the joyous process of creating next year’s landscape plans. Here’s what Boston area homeowners have been thinking about: The Edible Landscape: The interest in local fruits, vegetables and herbs continues to be strong. What could be more local than growing your own? You can enjoy the benefits of gardening without needing to transform your property into a mini-farm. Work with your landscape designer to create manageable raised beds, add fruiting trees and bushes to the yard, or adding a small greenhouse to keep things fun and simple. Drought Hardy Plantings: One dry summer is more than enough to convince many Western MA homeowners of the value of using hardy native plants in the landscape. Grasses, shrubs, and other ornamental plantings that didn’t make it through last year’s rough conditions will need to be replaced. Now is the time to research what you’d like to have instead. Use Pinterest to collect images of plantings and gardens you find particularly compelling. Your Boston landscape designer can help you make them happen! Bringing The Outdoors In: Whether you fall in love with the flowers you see on vacation or want to bring the natural landscape in, transition areas such as porches, patios and terraces are playing an increasingly important role in Boston landscape plans. No space is too small to be beautiful! Custom designed window boxes and entranceways have...
