Types of Plants Commonly Used in Our Custom Landscaping Projects

If you'd like to see your project before installation, we can show you a 3D design of the landscaping that accurately depicts how the plants will look after they've been planted. Our custom landscape projects generally use plants that are native to our area. Using native plants cuts down on the number of resources needed to maintain the landscaping, making this an eco-friendly practice. Non-native plants will require more watering, more fertilizer, and other maintenance tasks that take time and labor. Plants we typically use in our landscape installations include:

  • Roses
  • Spirea
  • Fineline buckthorn
  • White dahlias
  • Boxwood
  • Barberry
  • Ornamental trees
  • Ornamental grass
  • And more!

The Benefits of Mulch & Rock Installation for Landscape Beds

One of the most important steps in landscaping is to install mulch or rock ground cover. Popular mulches in our area are cypress, western red cedar, and gold, black, brown, and red shredded hardwood. Common rocks we put down include gray, black, or brown river rock or grey slate chips.

Both of these have extensive benefits for your landscape beds. Proper ground cover installation aids in preventing soil erosion, which is key when you've spent money fertilizing that soil. Other benefits of mulch and rock ground cover are:

  • Natural weed barrier: Mulch and rock stop weeds from getting nutrients that they need to grow like light, air, and water. Without these, the weeds can't complete photosynthesis.
  • Moisture retention: In the summer when it gets hot and dry, your soil will stay moist longer with mulch and rock protecting it from the hot sun and evaporation. 
  • Soil insulation: When cooler weather hits, your plants will be better protected because the mulch and rock keep soil insulated from extreme temperature changes.

We also provide white limestone for custom driveway installation.

Maintaining Your Landscape Beds Increases Overall Plant Health

After we install landscaping, we can also provide landscape maintenance tasks such as landscape bed weeding and plant trimming. Keeping weeds out of your landscaping helps your plants absorb needed nutrients and ensures weeds won't choke out your plants. 

At Phil's Lawn & Landscaping, we recommend trimming be done in the spring and fall. This helps to remove any dead or dying branches that may be sapping up resources and gives your landscape plants a shapely, well-kept appearance.
