If you have a new home, or you are updating your existing home, you may be considering changing or implementing new landscaping. Our company specializes in individualizing landscaping designs so that you can have the lawn and garden of your dreams. Some people prefer to create a tropical paradise with lots of palms and shrubs, while other people prefer more traditional and calm landscaping. Here are the pros and cons of each to help you decide.
Having a tropical paradise in your yard can be a great addition to your home. It is a conversation starter, and a great way to prepare your home for entertaining. You will also enjoy the exotic plants that are included in your landscape design.
Some tropical plants such as palms and some shrubs do have certain requirements. It is important that you understand the maintenance requirements of your tropical paradise and follow instructions to the letter. If you don’t, your tropical paradise will quickly deteriorate. Having tropical plants in your landscaping design can add some work to the gardening and lawn maintenance, but you may feel that it is worth it to have a unique and personalized landscape.
Traditional landscaping is usually a safe bet if you don’t want to have a lot of added maintenance to your lawn or garden. Traditional landscaping can include plants such as basic shrubs or bushes, trees of your choosing, or gardens filled with easy to care for plants and flowers. These plants and flowers are also much less expensive than tropical plants.
On the other hand, traditional landscaping doesn’t really add to your home. When you opt for traditional landscaping, you are opting for a more mundane and functional yard rather than something that will be sure to impress guests. Of course, with proper maintenance and care any yard can be a conversation starter.
