Orange County is full of beautiful homes. For some, it’s the stunning architectural work, using classic elements and features, while still embracing the avant-garde. But the year-round sunshine and warm weather mean that Orange County homeowners love spending their time outside. Landscaping then is perhaps one of the best ways to help make your house truly standout, enhancing the appearance of your home.
While some truly have a green thumb, many homeowners don’t share that talent. That doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy spectacular landscaping for your home. At Lawn By Twins, we’re proud to offer our landscape design, installation, and maintenance services so your home can sport a brilliant natural appearance all year long.
A quick Google search for “landscapers near me” will reveal page after page of results, everything from professional services with the latest equipment to amateurs with a pair of shears and a push mower. Finding the right landscaper for your home can be difficult; after all, landscaping is an investment in the appearance and value of your home. You don’t want just anyone putting together your yard. When you’re seeking a landscaper in Orange County, look for these features:
Choosing a landscaper with years of work under their belts helps to ensure that your landscaping looks it best. A seasoned professional can recognize nuances and delicacies in your yard that you might not even know are there. They can use their insights and knowledge to craft a truly stunning yard that amplifies its best features, while cleverly downplaying the areas that could use some more work. Experience means that they have taken all of the guesswork out of their design and installation process. They’ll know exactly which plants thrive and flourish in the Orange County sun, and which shrink away from the heat. Ask to see a landscaper’s portfolio and how long they’ve been in business or worked in the field to get a sense of how experienced and accomplished of a landscaper they are.
A Suite Of Services
The fact is, lawn care companies are not the same as landscaping firms. Some landscapers might offer both services, but you shouldn’t trust the team who keeps your grass trim to also plant new flower beds and put in a new patio. You want to work with one landscaping service in Orange County that can do it all. Letting one service design the landscaping, while another puts it in, and a third tries to keep it looking nice, only results in a disconnect between you, the various services, and the quality of your landscaping. Find a landscaper that can design, install, and manage your landscaping for you. The result is that your landscaping always looks great because only one service is doing the work. They understand your vision and know exactly which plants they put in and how to care for them. Your landscape will look lush and beautiful for years if you trust one service to take care of all of it.
They Communicate Effectively
Your landscaping speaks volumes about your connection to nature and your values as a homeowner. You’ll want your landscaping team to do the same thing. The best landscapers in Orange County aks you to share your vision for your outdoor spaces with them, and help you make it a reality. They’ll keep you updated as to where they are in the landscaping process, and offer you advice on how to best care for your new yard, and what other details and decorations can further beautify your outdoor space. Finally, a great landscaper will create a routine maintenance schedule that keeps your yard looking fabulous throughout the year. Think of your yard as a blank canvas, the landscaper as an artist, and yourself as a patron backing their incredible work.
Homeowners are often content to choose the first landscaping company that appears on their Google search results or that appears in the yellow pages. Unless they’re incredibly lucky, choosing a landscaping company in Orange County like that is akin to gambling. Choosing the wrong landscaper might affect your home in a noticeable way.
Choosing a poor quality landscaper might be a riskier endeavor than you first realize. Many homeowners look at landscaping as an expense rather than as an investment. To keep costs down, they choose the landscapers who offer them the lowest bid to do the most work. The result is truly an example of “you get what you pay for.” The yard is filled with plants that look nice for a few weeks, then wither and die. The lawn looks more like a hack job than a trim. Despondent, the homeowner calls the more highly reviewed service to undo the damage to their yard. Suddenly, they’re paying twice for a job that should have been done correctly the first time.
Impacts To Your Home’s Value
Landscaping has both long-term and short-term benefits for your home. Done well, landscaping can actually add value to your home, making it a more desirable property to potential home buyers. Similarly, it’s nice for the current homeowners to take in and enjoy while they live in their home. However, poorly executed landscaping can impact your home’s value. If a cut-rate landscaping company comes to your home, botches your yard, and then leaves, you’re out the money you paid them, and also the money your home is worth. Landscaping increases a home’s curb appeal. Homes with higher curb appeal are more likely to attract buyers. Indeed, real estate agents find that homes with well-kept exteriors leave buyers with a more favorable impression of the interior. This leads to higher bids on homes that are for sale. One poorly landscaped yard in your neighborhood can impact the values of all of the other homes nearby.
When you treat your landscaping as an investment and work with a high-quality landscaping service in Orange County like Lawn By Twins, you’re treated to a whole host of benefits.
Improve Your Environment
Introducing more vegetation to your home can noticeably influence the environment. Air quality is a pressing concern, and plants like trees, flowers, and grass act as a sort of green cleaning agent. The vegetation captures harmful pollutants, and scrubs them from the air, releasing fresh, healthy oxygen in the process. Grass absorbs enough carbon dioxide that a simple 50’x50’ lawn can produce enough oxygen to sustain a family of four. Including more plants only enhances your yards air cleaning power.
Landscaping can also impact your local environment too. Noise pollution from cars, noisy neighbors, or nearby businesses can impact your quality of living. The vegetation in your landscaping serves as a sort of natural sound shield. Noise levels can be effectively reduced by 20 to 30 percent by putting in more vegetation over other physical barriers like wood, stone, or concrete. Not only will your home feel less noisy, you’ll also enjoy a neighborhood with a lower crime rate. Studies conducted by the United States Forest Service found that communities with more tree-lined streets, larger yards, and more flowers have reduced crime rates. You’re not only adding value to your home, but you’re also making your entire neighborhood a more enticing and pleasant place to live!
Saves You Money On Your Utility Bill
While the temperatures in Orange County stay fair all year round, there are some days during the peak of summer where it can get a little too hot for comfort. You might power on your air conditioner, but you’ll also see a dramatic increase in your utility bill. Proper landscaping can actually impact the microclimate of your home. A microclimate is the air patterns and pockets of heat or cold that are around your home. You can influence your microclimate by planting shade trees, bushes, and shrubbery around your home. Essentially, they serve as a form of natural sunblock for your home. In some cases, studies have shown that landscaping can affect the microclimate of a home by nearly 25 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer season. By decreasing the temperature of your home, you’re reducing your reliance on air conditioning, putting less strain on your HVAC system, and keeping your utility costs low.
Landscaping Improves Your Mood
Investing in landscaping for your Orange County home not only improves the health of your yard, but it improves your health too. Numerous studies have linked exposure to nature and plants to decreased levels of stress and an increased sense of well-being. While the effects are most pronounced when an individual is outside and near nature, simply being able to view a natural landscape through a window has been shown to lower your blood pressure. Those who regularly immerse themselves in a natural environment enjoy improved attention and memory skills. Finally, spending time outside can alleviate the symptoms and feelings of depression and loneliness. Landscaping can leave you feeling happier and healthier!
