Landscape Features affect plant health, maintenance costs and water use
- Site grading when your home was built; the home-lots in the neighborhood are sloped toward the street.
- Sloped yards with lawns are harder to maintain and water; raising direct costs as well as hidden costs.
- Irregular shaped, narrow, oddly angled and/or shaded lawn areas are difficult to maintain and water; leading to unhealthy lawns, while raising costs.
- Adding trees to the mix creates a competitive environment; raising maintenance costs and affecting health of both trees and turf.
