Albuquerque Landscaping Pros' Landscaping Design Services For Albuquerque, New Mexico
There is no getting around the fact landscaping is an essential part of any property, whether a residential or commercial property. Having a shabby strip of land surrounding your property will lower its value, take away from the overall curb appeal, and make it hard, if not impossible, to use the outdoor space.
The good thing is these facts are not lost on Albuquerque property owners. Property owners in Albuquerque go above and beyond to ensure their front yards are picturesque while their backyards are tranquil, beautiful, practical, and beautiful.
In the same light, Albuquerque Landscaping Pros focuses on providing landscaping design services that exceed your expectations while ticking all the right boxes of an ideal front or backyard. We work with homeowners and business owners to create bespoke landscapes that work well with all the structures in the properties.
Commercial Landscape Design And Residential Landscape Design
Commercial properties and residential property owners prioritize different elements during the designing stage. For instance, commercial property owners will most likely prefer a maintenance-free or low-maintenance landscape, while homeowners will not mind doing some maintenance.
Commercial property owners also have to consider a broader set of conditions, including the accessibility of walkways to all users, building codes, and much more. On the other hand, homeowners have a freer reign in the design. As you can appreciate, designing a commercial property landscape is different from designing a landscape for homeowners.
Albuquerque Landscaping Pros is adept and experienced in handling these different types of landscape designing projects.
Hardscape And Landscape Designs
Hardscapes refer to all non-living elements of the landscape. Hardscapes can include various structural, practical, and decorative elements used in creating a landscape. While hardscapes add to the space's aesthetic appeal, they also play a crucial role in organizing the space. With a stellar design, landscapers can use hardscape to define the space and induce the natural space. In doing this, hardscapes add to the curb appeal of your garden or front yard.
An excellent example of using hardscape to define the space in your back yard is to install winding paving that heads to a secluded and relaxing part of your property.
Typical temporary hardscape elements used Albuquerque properties include:
- Decks (especially wooden decks)
- Fire pits
Some of the more permanent hardscape features that we use in landscape designs include:
- Retaining walls
- Outdoor kitchenettes
- Patios (which are made of concrete, stone, bricks, flagstone, or tiles)
In locations where drought resistance is an important quality to have in your landscape, property owners tend to use more hardscaping than softscaping. Installing more hardscapes than softscape in dry regions reduces the maintenance requirements and cost. Keep in mind the more plants you have in your landscape, the more water you will likely use, which is expensive in Albuquerque. Additionally, Albuquerque introduces water restrictions from time to time, especially when water shortages become a pressing issue.
It is important to note that we also consider water features as part of the hardscapes in our field. However, given the dry climatic conditions in New Mexico, the use of hardscapes is not particularly popular nor common. Water features require a property owner to use a lot of water, which can be expensive, impractical, and sometimes impossible to maintain.
Nonetheless, some property owners opt to use water features in their landscape. These include stone fountains, ceramic fountains, clay pot fountains, as well as other DIY fountains.
Softscapes And Landscape Designs
Softscape refers to all of the flora in your landscape. These are the organic plants, flowers, ground covers, shrubs, trees, and other living matter you incorporate into your landscape. These plants tend to change frequently, and our climate's seasonality will influence their colors, shapes, textures, and sizes. They are also relatively soft to the touch, hence the name softscape.
In Albuquerque, xeriscaping is increasingly becoming the desired landscaping design. Xeriscaping calls for the use of local greenery that's adapted to the local climate rather than exotic plants. Xeriscaping is also practical in that it focuses on limiting water usage in maintaining your landscape.
Al things considered, plants play an essential role in any landscape. A landscape devoid of plants tends to absorb more solar heat and transmits the heat into your house or offices. As such, the goal is to balance and blend hardscape and softscape to create a landscape that meets your needs.
Landscaping Design That Improve your Investment
Get your landscaping right, and the value of your property will improve. Get it wrong, and the landscape with shave a few thousands of dollars from your property's value. When you think about your landscape in these terms, you will realize it is an investment. Every element you add to your landscape, whether it is an irrigation system, shading hardscape, or an outdoor kitchenette, should add value to your property.
Crucially, you should note that it pays to have professionals like Albuquerque Landscaping Pros design your landscape. A run-of-the-mill landscaper will not be adept in designing a landscape that adds value to your property.
