Often, we find that people have very defined ideas of what landscapers do. This image generally includes lawn mowing, watering, and sodding, but not much else. At Memphis Landscape we certainly do these things, but we also do much more. In order to go over what exactly it is that we do here, and the nature of landscaping in general, we’ve put together this list of frequently asked questions. Let’s get started.
What services do you provide?
No matter if it’s commercial or residential, our trained staff can do a lot for your property. We provide landscape design, maintenance, drainage systems, automated irrigation systems, mosquito control, and fencing services.
What kind of fencing services?
At Memphis Landscape, we build 6’ or 8’ security fences with a variety of high quality materials to ensure long-lasting quality for our clients. We also provide full fence tear down services and custom gate building, so you won’t have to worry about having your gate clash with your fence or the dimensions of your property.
What areas do you service?
We serve Memphis, Germantown, Cordova, and surrounding areas. If you’re unsure that your property’s within range of our service area, give us a call and we’ll let you know. Chances are we can make it work!
How can you prevent mosquitos from taking over my property?
We use a pollinator-safe repellant which bonds to leaves and other foliage to prevent mosquitos from hanging around in your yard for weeks. This takes effect in around thirty minutes, and works wonders for those who use their outdoor spaces frequently. With mosquitos carrying a catalogue of dangerous diseases, it’s more important than ever to keep yourself and your family safe. As an added bonus, the repellant is also effective against cockroaches, fleas, ticks, and ants. Nice, huh?
What do you do in the winter?
During the winter, we spend much of our time preparing for the busy spring and summer seasons. We also provide winter landscape management services; continue creating designs for clients; and remove, build, and maintain fences.
What goes into designing a landscape?
We think about every aspect of your property when it comes to landscape design. This includes your lawn, shrubbery, trees, patio, furniture, and more. Because we consider the entire composition of an outdoor area, our experienced designers create spaces that you’ll enjoy for years to come. Of course, the entire design process is sensitive to each client’s budget, and we have experience creating landscapes on any scale.
What if I don’t like the design?
If you’ve hired Memphis Landscape to create a landscape with you for a property, there’s very little chance that you’ll see a design that you don’t like. That’s because we pride ourselves on working closely with clients to make customized plans to fit personal goals and preferences. We work with the client, so your input is critical to the process.
How do you manage a landscape?
Landscape management includes mowing, trimming, edging, pruning, debris removal, shrub shearing, and weeding. We do everything to keep your lawn looking its best, and we’ll always be there when you need us.
How often should I water my lawn during the summer?
For most grasses in the Memphis area, we recommend giving your lawn about 1” of water per week. Over- and underwatering are the leading causes of dead, ugly grass, so make sure to get this right. For shrubs and trees, try to give them a deep watering once or twice per week. You should water most flowers a bit more often, at two to three times per week. We’re always available if you’ve got more specific questions, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.
When is the best time to water my lawn?
Generally, you want to water your lawn when it’s not too hot and sunny outside. When it’s too sunny, your water will evaporate. To avoid this, try making it part of your morning or late afternoon routine.
How short do you cut the grass?
For most lawns during the summer, we’ll cut the lawn to around 3”. This has been proven to be the best height for healthy growth, which is critical in the hot months. As long as your lawn’s cut regularly, you won’t have to worry about your lawn getting too high, too quickly at this length.
Is a well-designed landscape good for my property value?
Yes! While specific numbers vary, you can generally expect to increase your home’s value by about 10% to 15% with a decent investment in your landscape. Returns can be much higher depending on location and other factors.
How much does this all cost?
Prices vary based on the services we provide. It’s best to talk with us at the initial consultation about your vision and budget to get an idea of what we can do together. For those looking to get their landscape designed and built from the ground up, many realtors advise investing heavily into your landscaping to get the best return on investment. Curb appeal is extremely important. For those just looking for quality lawn maintenance, we offer very reasonable rates.
