20 Oct Anaheim Yard Makeovers
If you have just moved to Anaheim or are a long term resident, there is a good chance that your yard needs a makeover. Over the course of the last few summers with the watering restrictions that the drought caused as well as the periodic stretches of heat then cool, your plants are probably quite stressed, if they are alive at all. Plants in your yard enjoy consistency, and when you get weather like we have had over the course of the last few years where it gets very hot then very cold, combined with the fact that we cannot consistently water everything without breaking the law, and you end up with a yard that looks less than desirable. There also might be the case where you have just moved to Anaheim, and while the house was for sale the landscaping did not get as much attention as it would have had someone been living there. This is the perfect time for a yard makeover.
If you have plenty of spare time on your hands then you may consider undertaking the makeover yourself, don’t be put off if there’s a lot fof debris such as an old shed, broken pots, planters even bicycles, you could take this to the local recycling centre one car load at a time or for quickness and convenience you could always hire a man and a van for the day via Shiply. With the help of a man and a van you could get rid of any unwanted items, debris and rubbish all in one go or one day depending on how much there is to take. The added benefit of hiring a man and a van is not only do you get a helping hand with the heavy lifting but this way you save gas from the lack of multiple trips and on top of that your car stays clean and doesn’t reek for weeks afterwards from some unknown source which is what usually happens.
On the other hand it could be the case that a garden makeover is simply too much for you to undertake yourself and you’re going to need either a helping hand or even someone to come in and carry out the makeover for you so you can sit back, relax, and watch your garden be transformed in front of your very own eyes.
Coastal Greenscapes is one of Orange County’s premier landscaping services, creating stunning yardscapes using materials that are water smart. One of the things that you are going to need to take into consideration when you have your yard redone is if there is going to be another drought (which there probably will be) and how much you want to work on it. We specialize in desert landscaping and xeriscaping, which uses little to no water and needs almost no care in order to stay looking good. This method of landscape planning takes into consideration the groundcovering, making sure that we are not using grass due to the fact that grass can consume up to 55 gallons of water per square foot ever year. We prefer to use concrete, crushed rock, pavers or artificial turf as the groundcovering due to the fact that these all provide a solid footing for walking or running while not being a living plant. If you are planning an area like a dog run or a play area, we would strongly recommend artificial turf as it is easier on the feet and knees. While you are considering specific areas of your yard, how about a putting green or sitting area as well. Using specific areas of your yard for a purpose will encourage far more use than simply having an open area. Using grills and fireplaces, walls, benches and pavers we can create the idea space for your lifestyle.
While we are doing your makeover, think about what the yard will look like at night as well as in the day. The installation of LED lighting as accents on walls and fixtures, as well as used to light pathways is going to create a dramatic look at night that you will never regret doing. Between the low maintenance, water saving and money that you will save over time by not losing plants to the drought, we can assure you that the makeover of your yard will be one of the best decisions you have ever made.
