Seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern life? Would you prefer to hear bees buzz and birds sing instead of your cell phone’s chime? You can enjoy a natural retreat on your property with the help of Northern Virginia Landscaping. To get started on your next softscaping project, call (703) 982-0100 today!
Below, we describe how to relax in your wooded space, incorporate awe-inspiring pathways, and boost visual appeal with shade-loving Northern Virginia plants.
Respect Trees by Making Them Prominent
Healthy trees with well-tended branch systems are often the focal points of landscape plans. Vibrant, mature trees add character to a landscape, and many people find solace around large trees’ roots by reading or practicing grounding. If your property has few or no trees, call NV Landscaping to plant a mini-forest and establish some roots.
A professional horticulturist or arborist can tell you about your existing trees and determine whether natural mulching or suits your property. Large trees’ roots, responsible for absorbing nutrients and water from the soil, can grow underground as far and wide as tree branches. So, tread lightly while developing a plan for your woodland garden to avoid disturbing the root zone.
Create Pathways to Your Secret Garden
Depending on your property’s size and the number of trees, you can blaze meandering pathways that lead to a quiet area of retreat or even a secret garden. You have many to choose from, and your path can include natural stones or specialty outdoor lighting to accommodate seating areas.
If you need to create a space for seating, we can help with that, too. The elite craftsmanship of Northern Virginia Landscaping’s fire pits and patios will meet your hardscaping needs.
Bringing Home Shade-Loving Plants and Fast-Growing Trees
If you’re addicted to plant-shopping but have little time to add them to your landscape, let us help. Northern Virginia Landscaping’s expertise encompasses mass plantings for groundcover, plants, and trees. We can recommend many groundcovers and that thrive in shade and can help re-establish forests. Shade-loving forest flowers also tend to be dainty but beautiful and evanescent, which makes viewing them even more special.
You can find so many ferns, astilbe, heuchera, hostas, perennial flowers, and shade-loving ground covers at local garden centers. Turn to our team for help placing natural features like boulders and stepping stones along with landscape plants, all of which bring your backyard to life. To create a unique place to relax and enjoy nature, call Northern Virginia Landscapers at (703) 982-0100 today.
