Landscape Design

Something important to consider when creating landscape design is placement of the actual plant life in Suffolk or Nassau county yards. Plants, shrubs and trees need to have the correct amount of sunlight and should be secured in the right soil for healthy roots.

By taking some time in choosing the best location for Suffolk County landscape design, you will end up spending less time on maintenance if the vegetation is not in optimal area.

Some plants require more sunlight or shade than others, so before planting observe throughout the day where the shade covers your property.



Types of plant life

Junipers

With over 100 varieties in the United States, Junipers are one of the most durable plants to grow in your Long Island landscape design. They come in different color shades and sizes. The taller varieties are popular for lining yards and creating natural privacy. Low height junipers are good for ground cover. The junipers do well with most types of soil that drains efficiently, along with plenty of sunlight.

Rhododendron

The roots of this plant do not grow over 12” into the soil in Suffolk County landscape design. If they go more than this length it will decrease absorption of air. Ideally these plants should be separated by about four feet. Prior to inserting the rhododendron into soil, check that dirt is in optimal condition. This plant requires soil that is acidic in order to prosper. The soil must also not be constantly soaked as this will damage the plants. They are actually strong enough to live through some climates with little rain.

Bamboo

Frequently seen in Long Island landscape design, growing naturally or rooted by people. The plant grows incredibly fast, increasing a couple of feet within a few days. In Asia the plant is harvested for use in building, as the bamboo is stronger than other common available materials.
