Idaho Falls LandscapingWe understand the importance of a yard that’s not only functional, but beautiful as well. For homeowners, it’s important that your yard is about more than simply having dirt that’s graded in such a way as to prevent flooding, it’s also about creating a yard that feels like home. For business owners, this comes with the additional factor of needing to drive people to your business. After all, an aesthetically appealing, well-maintained yard projects an image of success, and naturally draws in more customers. Our Idaho Falls landscaping services are all about creating that all-important balance between form and function. No matter what the location or circumstances of your property, we have the experience necessary for making the most out of it. We offer:
Custom Landscape DesignIdaho Falls landscaping projects generally come down to one of two types: softscape and hardscape. Here’s the difference.
Softscape is usually anything that involves soil and living materials such as trees, grass, flowers, and bushes. Softscape is about forming the landscape the way you want it and establishing the plants accordingly. Hardscape, on the other hand, involves hard materials - brick, stone, and rocks. Hardscape design projects we offer include:
- Stone walkway construction
- Stone and rock design
- Building retaining walls
- Creating various paved surfaces
- Creating stairs
Enhancement ProjectsThings break down over time. That, or we change, and what we used to like no longer seems appealing. Our Idaho Falls lawn enhancement projects will improve your landscape design and your garden. We can also improve the quality of your soil and the appearance of your trees, bushes, and flowers. If you think anything could use improvement in some way, we can help.
Or, let’s say you aren’t looking for an “enhancement project” so to speak, but rather simply need maintenance on existing property structures that are beginning to degrade. We can bring them back to their full potential, without changing their form.
Landscape RemodelsLooking for a bit more than merely enhancing your landscape? We offer full-on Idaho Falls landscape remodeling services. This is difficult work, but fortunately, you can leave it all to us.
There are many reasons why someone would want to totally remodel their landscape. Perhaps you want to increase the resale value of your home. Perhaps your home has undergone some remodeling and you want the yard to accommodate this in some way. No matter the reason, our technicians know how to create the necessary remodels.
Idaho Falls Lawn CareYour lawn requires a lot of care. It needs more than just the occasional mowing and watering. There's a lot that goes into it and many people are simply too busy to keep up with the various tasks required. Often, lawns begin to die on homeowners and they have no idea why. If you are noticing dry, brown, patchy, or weed-ridden grass, your lawn may need some of the following services.
AerationPeople’s lawns often start to die as a result of compact soil. This occurs primarily due to pressure. In Idaho Falls, aeration is often required in the spring, as all that heavy snow and ice that’s been sitting on your lawn throughout the winter months has weighed it down considerably. Not only that, but there’s often a layer of dead leaves, debris, garbage, and other materials that lies in between the snow and the soil, further adding to the weight and overall compaction.
We can help by aerating your lawn. Aeration is simply the process of perforating your lawn’s soil - digging consistent holes through it, pulling up little corkscrew-like pieces of dirt. Ultimately, your lawn’s soil will begin to move to accommodate these holes and the overall compaction is relieved. This allows more nutrients, water, and oxygen to penetrate the soil, and thus leads to healthier grass.
FertilizationSometimes, your lawn just needs a boost. We can fertilize your lawn and bring it up to its maximum health and beauty. We know how to choose the right fertilizer for your lawn’s specific species of grass, the quality of your soil, and the local growing conditions of your property. With our help, your lawn will get all of the nutrition it needs to survive and thrive. There are three basic things grass requires to be its healthiest:
- Yellow Starthistle
- Eurasian Water-Milfoil
- Rush Skeletonweed
MulchingWe can spread mulch over the surface of your soil to improve your plant’s growth. Our Idaho Falls mulching services helps maintain the moisture in your garden, prevents the growth of weeds, and stabilizes soil temperature. Not only that, but our mulch helps prevent the spread of soil-born diseases. As our mulch begins to decompose, it enhances the fertility of your soil and in turn enhances the health and beauty of your plants.
Mulch is usually comprised of a variety of different materials both organic and inorganic. These include:
- Wood chips
- Pine needles
- Grass clippings
Power RakingOver time, your lawn is going to develop a layer of debris, garbage, dead plant matter, and waste. This is generally referred to as “thatch”, and it can wreak havoc on your lawn. In effect, it suffocates your lawn depriving it of the various nutrients, water, and oxygen it needs to survive.
The best way of solving this problem is through our Idaho Falls power raking services. We will rake up that layer of thatch, allowing your lawn to breathe again.
Seasonal Clean UpsSpring and fall are the two times of the year when people’s lawns require “seasonal cleanups”.
- In the fall: Over the summer, your lawn has likely accumulated a layer of trash, debris, and other unwanted material from traffic and the elements. In Idaho Falls, seasonal cleanups are often required due to our strong winds, which blow dust, debris, and other materials onto our lawns. Adding to this, in the fall, the leaves fall to the ground, and even if you rake them up, you’ve likely left behind a great deal of “leaf shavings” in the process. All of these various materials create a layer on your lawn called “thatch”. Then, the snow falls, and that thatch is hardened under the cold and pressure. In the spring, this tough layer of thatch makes it more difficult for your lawn to recover from the winter. Our seasonal clean up services can help prevent this.
- In the spring: Let’s say you didn’t properly clean up your lawn in the fall before the snow fell. Not to worry! Our spring clean up services can remove this layer of thatch, which otherwise would have choked the life out of various areas of your lawn and lead to plenty of dead patches, brown and dry grass, and a lawn that’s generally unpleasant to look at.
Pruning and TrimmingOver time, trees and bushes can become overgrown. This is bad for a number of reasons, namely:
- Overgrown trees and bushes can be unhealthy for the plants themselves and lead to dead and misshapen areas.
- Overgrown trees often involve loose or dead branches, which can fall off and destroy property or, worse, injure people.
Idaho Falls LightingWhether you own a home or business, outdoor lighting is something to consider. The reasons for this are twofold:
- A more beautiful property
- Better security
First of all, the right lighting is massively important to the overall atmosphere and mood of your property. You want a place where friends and family can come and relax at night, and feel at home. You also want a place that’s a natural deterrent to trespassers and thieves - after all, few people are going to sneak onto a property that’s on display.
New Leaf Landscape Design and Maintenance also offers holiday lighting. In Idaho Falls, holiday lighting is difficult for many people. After all, we see some pretty heavy winters here, and it can be difficult getting up on the roof and installing holiday lights. Many people simply can’t risk it. Fortunately, we’ll do that for you!
Idaho Falls Snow RemovalIn Idaho Falls, snow removal is a commonly required service. This is true not only for homeowners, but business owners as well. While many homeowners in rural Idaho Falls own large properties, ranches, and lots in which snow removal is a far greater task than it is for other properties, business owners also need to remove snow so that people can access their business in the first place.
Beyond the issues of convenience and business, there’s also the law to consider. Properties both commercial and residential are legally required to clear out snow for pedestrians.
Many people of advanced age, or those with certain physical impairments, simply can’t take the risks involved with snow and ice removal, or don’t have the strength or ability to do it in the first place.
New Leaf Landscape Design and Maintenance provides Idaho Falls snow removal services for exactly this reason.
