Landscape Maintenance in Hockessin, DE
Professional Landscape Design
A large residential property owner in Hockessin, Delaware called us out to take a look at their two acre property where they were interested in some landscape renovations. They wanted various elements of designed outdoor spaces, lawn areas and landscaping beds.
The owners were new to the Delaware area because of a job transfer. They were used to having their previous homes professionally maintained but they didn't know any of the neighbors yet, so they started scouring the local web for lawn care companies to see what was available locally. After finding a few companies they called all five lawn care services including Pro Image Landscaping to come out and do a consultation. Three never returned her call and the other company didn't show up or call for the appointment. This makes it frustrating and daunting for the customer wasting their time waiting for someone who never calls or shows up. These are the most common complaints when it comes to dealing with landscape maintenance companies.
If you are located in Hockessin and looking for a great, reliable lawn care service, give us a call, you won't be disappointed.
We service Wilmington, Newark and Hockessin Delaware as well as Garnet Valley, West Chester, Chadds Ford and Kennett Square Pennsylvania and neighboring cities in DE, PA.
The previous home owner had not taken good care of the property's lawn and landscaping over the last few years so the new owners knew they needed a landscape maintenance company that is a full service landscape company as well. The owners didn't want to deal with three or four different companies for her landscape needs; they wanted a company that could handle everything with one call. Every maintenance customer has different needs and expectations and being able to offer our customers a wide range of services is a great part of being a full service landscape firm.
Perennials & Shrubbery
We suggested a maintenance plan for the year to have a clear set of goals to achieve for the season and in the future. I walked the property with the clients carefully listening to their concerns and what plans they had in mind for the future. The landscape maintenance consists of taking care of the front main entrance of the house that were designed with beautiful colored perennials and shrubbery along with mulch beds. The array of different plant selections around the perimeter of the property consists of multiple textures, sizes, species and colorful perennials blooming all season long. The newly sodded lawn needed weekly maintenance and a yearly fertilization regimen to keep improving the quality of the turf.
Landscape Maintenance Can Include Some Hardscaping
Other parts of the landscape maintenance that needed attention were all the hardscaping. There are multiple seating areas with paver and flagstone patios around the property for relaxing in the shade or sitting with the family at night around the fire pit area. Some of the areas were made from large natural flagstone and other elements were crafted from concrete pavers.
These spaces need almost no maintenance but keeping the areas cleaned, weed free and making sure there are no settlement issues. Sometimes reapplying polymeric stabilizer sand in the hardscaping may be needed to prevent erosion of the sand between the joints of the pavers and flagstone. It's a tough job to keep all the maintenance on schedule due to the weather conditions interfering with our schedule but we make our best effort to work around these delays to keep landscape maintenance on schedule for the season.
