Selecting the Right Greenery for Your Columbus, Ohio Home Landscaping

Flowerbeds, gardens, lawns, and other landscape features don’t just grow on their own.  Plantscapes must be thought out before you even enter a nursery to buy seeds or small starters. Shade, screening, erosion control, separating, focal points, and many other elements must be considered. A small plant may look pretty in the store, but in ten years it could grow into a huge tree, ruining your house foundation if it isn’t planted far enough away from your home.  It’s important to know everything there is to know about the items you are purchasing. What they will look like, how big they will get, and how they should be cared for. Make sure they are zoned properly and can grow in Columbus, Ohio’s climate. Determine the texture, if they will be smooth or rough. Height, weight, dangers, allergies, and colors are additional things you should think about.

In summary, knowledge and planning are the keys to selecting the right plants and greenery for your home landscaping.  Hidden Creek Landscaping possesses the knowledge and experience to incorporate the beauty of greenery seamlessly into your home landscaping design, with a perfect blend of style and functionality.

Installing Green Roofs In Columbus Ohio

Green roofs are becoming an increasingly popular, and attractive, option for businesses throughout the country.  A green roof is just what it sounds like, it’s a vegetative layer on a rooftop.   Through the process of evapotranspiration, green roofs remove heat from the air.  Considering how hot roofs can get, a green roof can actually be cooler than the air temperature!  Since green roofs remove heat and act as insulators for buildings, you can expect a decrease in heating and cooling expenses.  Aside from lowering energy use, green roofs also are a benefit to the environment  by removing air pollutants, and reduce storm water runoff.

There are a variety of types of green roofs that are being installed across the country.  Some are simply a small layer of vegetation, and others are full gardens and even usable parks.  Green roofs are commonly installed on both commercial and residential buildings.  Hidden Creek Landscaping specializes in green roofs for commercial buildings as part of our commercial services.  Please contact us to learn more about green roofs and out other commercial services.
