Santa Barbara Landscape Maintenance means to resist deterioration. It means to keep things looking the same. The problem with this approach is that turf, flowers, shrubs, and trees are living things—they’re constantly changing and evolving. And that’s why management is critical.
Managing a landscape means to guide future change and development in order to foster growth. It requires the landscape manager to be ready to adapt to everything Mother Nature throws its way. And landscape management—not maintenance—is something that all of us at Engledow take to heart.
The term “landscaping maintenance” can lead one to believe it includes a number of different services, but is a fairly vague term. Here at Hanson Landscape, our landscaping maintenance services include mowing, pruning, tree removal, edging, cultivation, fertilization, and broadleaf application. While a few of these terms are obvious landscaping terms that most people know about, such as mowing and tree removal, many people do not truly know what the other services entail.
Pruning is the fairly common and well-known service of removing parts of a plant such as limbs, roots and other parts. It is performed for reasons such as keeping plant health, reducing falling branch risks, and removing dead or diseased portions of the plant, as well as other reasons. Another service that Hanson performs in their landscaping maintenance services often is edging. Edging is simply creating an edge around a desired area using tools such as a spade or edger. This is done to draw the line between your landscaping features and other things such as your lawn. Generally mulch or topsoil is placed inside the edged area to add visual appeal to the landscaping features.
