Hamilton Landscaping Ideas: Giving your Small Yard a Sizable Appeal


Keep a careful balance when decorating so that the space doesn’t end up looking too dull or mundane or getting too overwhelmed with detail. Both can destroy the illusion of spaciousness and they will only make your yard look cluttered or unappealing. Choose texture, colour, elevation, and even direction, properly when designing.

If you want the best bang for your buck, choose to work with reliable landscape pros like Green Collar Landscaping. Hiring professionals should ensure that your Hamilton landscape needs are well met, irrespective of the size of your property.

Professional Snow Removal in Hamilton Can Help You Avoid Injuries


Apparently, the excessive strain of hauling snow makes the heart work harder, thus making heart attacks more likely to occur. Furthermore, the excessive cold also causes arteries to constrict, which raises your blood pressure.

That’s why many people choose professional snow removal from Hamilton, Ontario companies like Green Collar Landscaping instead. These firms can quickly and expertly remove compacted snow so you won’t have to break your back— or your heart— doing so. With the snow cleared, you and your family can also avoid other risks such as slip-and-fall accidents, another common winter injury.

After performing snow removal for Hamilton residents, some landscaping companies can also place winter container plant arrangements to brighten up your lawn. As such, you can have an attractive snow-free lawn even at the height of winter.

What You Should be Looking for when Hiring Good Hamilton Landscapers


Living in the same city as the Royal Botanical Gardens in Ontario does put a little pressure on anyone planning to have their property landscaped. Hence, this isn’t a job for the do-it-yourself part-time gardener in you (or even your brother-in-law). In an article for AngiesList.com dated August 20, 2009, writer Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp points out some ways to select from among the most qualified Hamilton landscaping companies.

The first, quite simply, is to ask around. Whether through reputation or first-hand experience, your neighbors are bound to have someone to recommend. If it’s possible to view the landscaper’s previous work, this would greatly aid the decision-making process.

The second step is to find out if the landscaper is legally registered and allowed to do business in the area. They should be prepared to present any licences or permits issued to them as proof of their experience.

Snow Removal in Hamilton and Ways to Prepare for Holiday Home Exchange


Holiday home exchange has become very popular, thanks to the 2006 romantic comedy, “The Holiday.” In the movie, the characters of Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet go through a trying period in their lives and decide to travel abroad for the holidays, immediately ending up swapping homes for two weeks with the help of an online home exchange site.

In reality, exchanging homes during the holidays isn’t that easy, because there’s always much to do before a holiday. Departure time would likely loom near and you’d have done nothing much in the way of decorating, snow shoveling and the like, unless you’ve started fixing up everything months before—which isn’t possible. When you’re pressed for time to prepare your property for a holiday swap, you can ask help from landscape and lawn care professionals who offer winter arrangements and snow removal in Hamilton, such as Green Collar Landscaping.

Let Your Kids Appreciate Nature with Help from Hamilton Landscapers


Part of making sure the habitat stays safe for both your children and the wildlife is ensuring it remains free of chemicals. To this end, be sure to avoid traditional pesticides and pursue more natural alternatives; aphids, for example, can be dealt with by planting chives and mint, as well as wrapping the bottom of your plants in aluminum foil. Slugs on the other hand can be kept at bay by placing lemon balm, sage, and even human hair around your garden.

Your children deserve a space where they can let their minds and bodies run wild while taking in everything nature has to offer. Creative Hamilton landscaping companies like Green Collar Landscaping can help you make that space… and make sure your kids reach their full potential.

Summer Outdoor Lighting Options from Hamilton Landscaping Experts


Electric chandeliers are a good choice if you expect your gazebo to see frequent use, though doing so will be fairly pricey and will require you to have it outfitted with the right wiring. For more cost-effective choices, Hamilton landscaping experts will recommend candle chandeliers for some old-school charm. Solar chandeliers that absorb sunlight during the day for use at night are another viable option.

Fourth on Shore’s list are nature-inspired lighting fixtures; after all, if you’re going for outdoor lighting, you might as well make sure they match their surroundings. Shore advises going for fixtures rendered in earthy and woody tones (like brown and lime). It also helps design-wise if the fixtures take their cues from leaves, twigs, tree branches, and even animals.
