Potted Plants: Your Landscape Designers Secret Weapon

We have found that potted plants help to create a soft look on concrete and stone patios, picnic areas, and around the pool. Stone landscapes cry out to be offset by softer elements like willowy grasses and delicate flowers a complementary look that can give your landscape a yin/yang effect.

Winter Shrubs

Vegetation types range from Juniper woodlands and shortgrass prairie in the panhandle to mixed oak forests and swamps in the southeast. It can be tempting to think that the winter season can obscure Oklahoma’s beauty, but the reality is that some of Oklahoma’s finest shrubs and flowers come out to play in the winter. Homeowners looking to reflect Oklahoma’s year-round beauty in their property’s landscape design might be interested in a few of the below flowers we have listed that are special and unique to winter.

Preventing Garden Erosion

Nature can be a relentless force, and while it can be challenging to beat back the forces of erosion seeking to work against your carefully manicured property, there are steps you can take not only to protect your property but also to protect your soil and manage your property’s growth effectively and efficiently. Not only will soil stay where you want it, but you will use less water; the garden will look clean and crisp, and plants will flourish. Find the sprinkler that will allow you to customize the spray to water only when and where you need it.

Enjoying the Outdoors with Hardscapes

Today we want to tackle hardscapes patios, grill areas, and the like and talk about the impact they can have on your backyard, and how we approach these different landscape approaches at Green Pro. It’s important to state from the outset that every GreenPro landscape design is always balanced with a combination of hardscapes and softscapes. This means that if you want to create a paved patio off the main living area in your home , your design should also include softscapes or plantings to soften the area and provide you the perfect ambiance, where guests feel welcome and at ease.

Your Home’s Moment of Zen: Water Features

With a multitude of options to choose from, and with proper placement, water features can add a unique and life-giving aspect to your property. The peace that can come from having a body of water simply flowing in the background can be a fantastic addition to any back yard design.

Weed Control and Pre-Emergents

When a homeowner has spent hard-earned money on creating the green lawn they desire, it’s a shame to see that money go to waste when weeds take over and crowd out the grass seed that was laid. Our educated team provides a custom plan that is specific to your lawn, and then we remain consistent in how we care for that beautiful lawn of yours.

When and Why to Hire the Expert

You watch a TV special on landscape design (maybe Jerry Baker, master gardener, or one of those home improvement shows on HGTV) and think, “I can do that!” You go to your local garden shop, buy a bunch of flowers and plants, spend a day in the dirt, and then watch for six weeks as your new garden or landscape goes…absolutely nowhere.(Or worse: maybe everything dies!) There comes a time in every homeowner’s experience when you have to decide whether you are going to DIY it, or hire an expert.

Why Mulching Is Necessary for Your Garden

mulch

Mulch is typically applied in the springtime to aid plants and soil in the sweltering summertime and then once again in the fall to prepare for possible frost. WATER RETENTION Mulch is a barrier between your soil and the sun. We will make sure all weeds are removed and the ground is loosened before applying a generous layer of mulch to the soil.

Maximizing Your Tiny Yard

While many homeowners may have dreams of owning a large home with a palatial estate, complete with large yards, oftentimes they have to try to figure out how to make do with the properties they have. But just because you may have a home with a small amount of square footage does not mean you cannot maximize your space. Read below!

Core Aeration

Unhealthy lawns are often a result of soil beneath the grass that is now compacted, which keeps oxygen, water, and nutrients from flowing down to the roots. Core aeration is a type of lawn aeration that reduces compaction by removing soil and thatch, the chief culprits of soil compaction, from a lawn. As a result, homeowners can hire companies that specialize in lawn care to bring out their equipment to clear the property of plugs and clogs, and then drive precise holes into the soil for maximum care.
