Olivenhain is home to some beautiful properties, and landscape maintenance plays a big role in that. Homes that are designed to offer breathtaking beauty should be kept up professionally and play to the strengths of each individual property. Here are several landscape maintenance and design ideas for your Olivenhain home that Nature Designs Landscaping can help you achieve.
Play To Your Lot Strengths
Whether your lot is in a wooded area or overlooks a gorgeous view, you want to cater your landscaping design to play to those strengths. If your home is fairly close to the road, for example, but has a big backyard, you’ll likely want to add trees and other features to the front to create more privacy while working with the open space in the backyard to take advantage of as much living space as possible.
Consider Your Lifestyle
A lot of people seem excited by the idea of having a pool or elaborate backyard living space, but keep in mind which features you’re most likely to use before you commit to anything. A backyard pool requires a lot of upkeep to keep the water at a specific pH, while a backyard kitchen might require cleaning more often as your appliances are exposed to the elements. These are just a few of the many things to consider before you commit to what will likely be expensive and time consuming.
Sustainable living spaces are only going to become more in-demand as we tread further into the climate crisis. Instead of getting something like grass or plants that need a lot of water, work with your landscapers to come up with a plan to have plants and features that are less likely to need a lot of water—especially in the dryer months. Luckily in the San Diego area, many homes opt to zeroscape or implement a landscaping design that uses less water, so you’re not likely to stick out like a sore thumb if you decide to do so.
There are lots of ways to work with your landscape maintenance company to optimize your needs and your wants for your home’s exterior. Your exterior space is also living space, so optimizing that space to best work for you and what you want to do outside will only help you get the most out of your beautiful Olivenhain home.
