A fresh patch of mulch is like the blank canvass for your new space. We will lay new mulch beds, or remove old mulch beds, to create the perfect garden for you.
Spring is in the air, and that means it's time for an annual spring cleaning. Do you have debris in your yard, such as broken tree limbs, dead flower beds, overgrown bushes?
The installation of grass can give a totally new look to your lawn. Are you a low-maintenance homeowner? Then perhaps you will be interested in an artificial lawn. Artificial turf is popular in Oregon and the Beaverton area because it’s generally a little cheaper than most conventional sod lawns. Artificial turf provides a bright green, soft surface for kids and pets to play. If you’re environmentally conscious, it’s a great option because it will save more water over time. If you’re a more traditional home owner, then perhaps a fresh layer of new sod turf is just the thing your space needs. We can lay the new seedling, or we can install strips of sod turf, depending on how you want to design your outdoor space.
As we mentioned above, Beaverton Lawns is proud to offer a variety of hardscaping features and hardscaping maintenance packages. Hardscaping is a term used to refer to the hard materials built into a landscape. These materials can include rocks, stone, concrete, brick, gravel, and pavement. If you're considering a new hardscaping project, it's good to remember that the appearance of your hardscape feature will largely depend on the materials used to construct it. Flagstone, slate, and stamped concrete look the best on patio spaces, and we have a great selection of these materials to use on your patio project. In addition to looking great on the patio, stamped concrete, in particular, is very trendy because of its unique versatility. Many landscape designers use stamped concrete for driveways, pool decks, walkways, and paths. This form of concrete makes a project less labor intensive; it's also durable and quite affordable, too. Using stamped concrete will certainly bring both beauty and functionality to your outdoor space. Need more general ideas for your hardscaping project? Aside from fountains and fire pits and patios, hardscaping can include many commonly-overlooked features as well, such as stone walkways, pebble and gravel driveways, brick and rock walls, outdoor fireplaces, and pond structures. Hardscape features add style and functionality to your space, that's for certain. However, despite their beauty and design appeal, hardscape features may need specialized maintenance services to keep them looking their best.. Over the years, because of the weather here in the Beaverton and Portland area, many of these lovely structures could fall, break, chip, or wear out. Do you have a hardscape piece in your backyard that has seen better days? Give us a call! We will repair and revive these spaces, or replace them if necessary.
Frequent rain isn't a surprise to Oregonians. Although we might long for sunny days after a solid week of dark, rainy skies, we all know the rain is what makes Oregon's landscape so vibrant and green. Still, we can say with certainty that this frequent rain brings unique landscaping challenges for Beaverton and Portland area homeowners. Here at Beaverton Lawns, we are ready to meet many of these unique elemental challenges. We are totally prepared to protect your home and property from the toll mother nature can take on it. Do you have a proper yard drainage system in place? If your front yard is flooded, we can provide professional yard draining solutions. In addition to draining the area, we will help protect it in the future by servicing your retaining walls. Retaining walls are the foundation of your property. Retaining walls fight gravity. They keep soil in place, which prevents the earth around it from sliding and falling down. Retaining walls also serve the incredibly important purpose of diverting water away from the foundation of your home during flooding. Combined with a French drain system, a retaining wall protects your home and property from the perils of heavy rainfall. A French drain is essentially a trench built at a slope around your home. The French drain is dug out, a pipe installed, and then the hole is filled with gravel. Our landscape maintenance professionals can work on these two systems to keep your basement dry, and your backyard beautiful.
Is your lawn’s style as outgrown as your weeds? It’s time to revitalize your garden, lawn and landscape this year with new ideas and approaches. Portlanders hate wasting water and refuse to dump toxic pesticides onto their lawns, yet they hang onto the concept of lawns. We totally understand why. Lawns are classic Americana! Because dedication to the environment sometimes conflicts with keeping up a lawn in the front yard, many Portlanders have puddled lawns in the winter and patchy, yellow ones in the summer.
You can sum up Portland-area landscaping trends with just one word: sustainability.
This concept is exemplified beautifully by rain gardens. Rain gardens are depressed areas of the yard, covered in mulch and inhabited by plant species that thrive in lots of water. Having a rain garden means you will be both slowing and purifying the many inches of rain that fall per year. A rain garden could absorb plenty of excess storm water, which could prevent yard flooding, sewer backup and even replenish natural groundwater to the ecosystem. Rain gardens are pretty to look at, and they provide countless benefits for homeowners and cities alike. We work with local plant nurseries who specialize in the types of plants you’ll need for this project. Your rain garden can be decorated lightly with round, flat stones to give it a pleasant modern look.
Many of the new development homes in Beaverton come with a “builder’s landscape”. Builder’s landscapes are often made of layers of soil or clay, and retaining walls crafted from boulders. This leaves a new homeowner with basically nothing more than a pile of dirt. But one person’s pile of dirt is another’s blank canvass. Using this starting-point, it just takes a little creativity to build the perfect economical outdoor space. These backyards are often thin and narrow, with usage of retaining walls to create additional vertical space.
Textured, colorful foliage is another great trend we’ve been enjoying. You can use yellow or green colored plants to brighten dark corners of the space. One of our favorites is the Japanese maples, which will thrive in those shady corners of your yard. These gorgeous, fiery-colored trees will look stunning when they are backlit during an afternoon sunset. Use larger, slow-growing trees to create a canopy over your garden plants to shield them from the heat in the summer. These trees add to the visual composition of the space in ways that you will appreciate for many years. If you’re like us, you enjoy tropical and exotic plants. Besides the Japanese maple, we recommend resilient succulents that drought-tolerant yet low-maintenance.
