The5 Reasons for Hardscapes

Tomorrow is the first day of spring. Spring lawn preparation will be in order for many homeowners. Besides doing the usual mulching and lawn fertilization, you might want to consider a hardscape for your property. Hardscaping adds aesthetic appeal and can be used at your home and or commercial property. Naturescape specializes in hardscape planning and design. The following is a list of 5 reasons for hardscapes.

  1. It adds curb appeal: According to the “Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features” by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), hardscapes add resale value to your home.
  2. They are easy to maintain: Hardscapes are easy to maintain and cost little to manage.
  3. They prevent erosion: Installing a hardscape retaining wall can prevent erosion damage to your lawn and home.
  4. They are environmentally friendly: Rock walkways can be built to allow rain and run off to be directed to your lawn’s plants.
  5. They add privacy: Adding a stone wall around your property adds privacy from noisy street traffic and neighbors.

Naturescape, LLC was started in 1990 after its founder, Marcie Miner spent a few years working for large lawn care companies. She recognized that people were generally unhappy with the service they were getting from these landscape companies. It seemed the customers were constantly being “sold” on more applications by landscape company telemarketers after they signed up with their initial lawn service.

Marcie’s interest in the technical aspects of lawn care enabled her to become one of only 2 people in their branches history to pass the Supervisory Ornamental Shrub and Lawn exam in the first try. She attained her class 2 license also on the first try and loved driving the big tankers. But with many unhappy customers, she knew there had to be a better way.
So she brainstormed new ideas on how to care for lawns and came up with the name Naturescape and introduced their exclusive Worry Free Lawn Service, which has become quite popular.
