Little Rock Landscaping

Little Rock Arkansas is a beautiful city. With its rolling hills and river it is breathtaking. For a landscaper it can be a challenge and it takes the expertise of qualified and skilled landscaping company like Pugh’s Earthworks to properly address the terrain variations.

When landscaping slopes and hillsides there are several things landscapers must keep in mind. Trying to walk on slopes and can be difficult so careful planning to ensure a safe walk way is important. Then with hillsides there is always the potential hazard of soil runoff. Barriers have to be constructed so the soil remains intact. Keeping valuable nutrients from washing away with the runoff is critical.

Properly landscaped, hillsides can be spectacular. Advantages to a hill is that you have a better view to visualize and create a perfect combination of plants, flowers and erosion preventing materials. Sometimes it is evident that additional topsoil will be needed if the hill is mostly rocks. Planting the proper flowers and shrubs in the available pockets will render a spectacular landscaped area.

In addition to the variation of flowers and plants, stone walls are also a wonderful addition to a hilly landscape. Not only are they attractive but they are extremely functional with offering several benefits. In addition to helping to retain the soil and the nutrients, the stone can create its own micro-climate. This is because stone heats up from the sun and tends to retain that heat during the night. This often allows plants to grow in that area when they would not grow in other surrounding areas.

Having a building that is situated on a hill can be stunning to the viewer.  The addition of stairways, paths and the proper combination of shrubs, flowers and plants can add so much beauty and property value. Choosing tough plants that will not require routine trimming is important. Therefore often evergreens are a great choice. Also proper placement of the larger verses smaller plants can add to the aesthetics. Clearly using the smaller variety of plants in the front section of your landscape will help to not obscure the view as people look from the road below.

Clearly there is so much to consider when landscaping a hill. Choosing an experienced and certified landscape technician like the professionals at Pugh’s Earthworks is critical. Our professionals will analyze all pertinent factors for the area to be landscaped. We will then carefully draft a plan and present it to you the customer. We have many satisfied clients!
