As humanity becomes more aware of connectedness between things, GreenPro clients are starting to ask how to incorporate sustainability principles into their outdoor designs and landscapes. Composting can be as simple as raking leaves over your garden when you put it to winter bed or as specific as indoor food composting with worm bins. GreenPro works with clients who want to prioritize sustainable living, not just in their garden, but on their property overall. There’s a ripple effect when you buy sustainable organic products from businesses that support sustainable gardening.
The most common type of clover is the white clover, a member of the legume family. It produces its own nitrogen, which means that it will thrive in under-nourished lawns. The nitrogen it brings into the soil encourages grass growth when it decomposes. Some homeowners may like clover growing in their lawn, others may want to control it because they think it looks messy or are concerned about their children being stung by bees.
In recent days, hanging baskets and gardens have come back into vogue, especially when filled with plants and vegetation. Trailing vines can produce a large and vibrant presence, adding texture and beauty to your hanging gardens and containers. GreenPro is happy to set up a consultation and work with you to make sure your trailing vines and hanging gardens are everything you want them to be; they are available in a multitude of leaf sizes and shapes as well as colors.
It’s important not to neglect any aspect of your home’s design, including the entrance. GreenPro recently had the opportunity to work with a client to create a breathtaking front door entrance to their home. The entrance to the house has a direct effect on the landscape design and overall home décor.
A large water feature can be a great way to upgrade your yard and add beauty and class to your outdoor living space. A pond, pool, or fountain can help you create a backyard space you’ll enjoy for years to come. GreenPro would be happy to work with you to create a water feature design that can integrate with your living space and create a beautiful effect. We’ve suggested a few of our favorites; maybe these will give you some ideas for how to make your backyard living area a true oasis.
These are some basic tasks that sharp-eyed homeowners can perform to make sure that their homes and properties are free from the excess pools and puddles that can often overwhelm garden beds and lawns. If homeowners are willing to spend a little time and attention now, they may save themselves a great deal of time and money later. Not sure where to start?

It’s a good idea to prune dormant trees and shrubs now, since you will be clearing space for spring growth to occur. Spring-flowering branches should be brought indoors for forcing. If you’re planning on doing spring planting, you might want to sow seeds in indoor flats to start the growth process now. You should keep an eye on your garden for any plants that may have been uprooted by frost heaving. An extra layer of mulch should help restore growth.
At GreenPro we’re all about working with our clients to create new surroundings, new outdoor landscapes, new living spaces. We encourage clients not to merely slap down a garden border or a helter-skelter patio, but to really think through how best to make your new space the space you want. The clearer your goals are, the easier it will be for GreenPro to help you implement your dream property. Hilly properties or awkwardly laid-out homes may not be best for that deck you’re dreaming of.
Lawn edging can help your property stand out and be the difference between a yard that looks messy and unkempt and a well-tended, relaxing entertainment space. GreenPro has a 360-degree approach to property and landscape design, which means we look at every aspect of our clients’ homestead to see what we can improve.
