Modern Landscape Design
Modern landscaping techniques are designed with efficiency in mind. The active homeowner of today needs a landscape that is low maintenance but user friendly. Local landscaping companies can provide you with modern, yet picturesque landscapes that are tailored to your preferences and needs and clue you into modern conservation techniques.
Modern landscapers are aware that water conservation is a big issue, particularly as changing weather patterns and growing populations put a strain on resources. Drought prone landscapes now largely employ xeriscape landscaping principles to conserve water using drought resistant plants, gravel for ground cover and stone accenting. Modern landscape irrigation systems take the labor out of landscaping and eliminate a lot of water waste, particularly automated sprinklers and drip irrigation systems.
An innovative modern landscaping technique that won't save you money but will save you from the work of snow removal is the heated driveway that melts and channels snow away. Consult your landscape professional to find out which modern landscaping marvels are right for your budget and your personal tastes.
