Thinking like Hamilton Landscapers: Designing your Garden Layout Plan


You should also consider the shape of your garden. Circular lawns, for one, are more formal, and they offer a strong visual statement, whereas rectangular lawns are best used for recreation, since it allows for more space for sports. You can also choose for more irregular designs like open and free-flowing lawns.

Efficient Hamilton landscaping companies like Green Collar Landscaping can deliver excellent landscape design and maintenance services, but even the best professionals can’t incorporate your grand ideas and preferences unless you take part in the planning process.

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.

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.
