Common Challenges in Okanagan Landscaping
Despite all of its beauty and charm, landscaping in the Okanagan Valley does pose some challenges. Fortunately, our team of experts are knowledgeable about the climate, terrain and plant life.
It’s common in our area to encounter outdoor spaces that are almost completely vertical. It can seem impossible to develop these yards into usable areas, but it can be done – with exceptional results. Consider rock retaining walls to add texture and colour, while also delineating different levels within your yard. Strategic excavating, paver placement and planting can give you a functional space that is aesthetically pleasing as well.
Throughout the hot summer months, there is often not enough natural rainfall to sustain plant life on its own. We can help you to avoid issues like these by employing a couple of strategies. Firstly, by using plants that are common to the area, we ensure that they are strong enough to stand up to our climate and will provide beautiful ground cover for years to come. Secondly, we can install in ground sprinklers or water catchment systems to provide care free maintenance that will keep your garden lush and beautiful.
Finding the Right Landscaping Contractor in Kelowna
If you’ve decided to invest in your outdoor living area, you want to be sure to have the work completed by experienced professionals. To find a qualified landscape contractor Kelowna residents should:
- Ask to see samples: Make sure your landscape contractor has designed spaces that pose similar challenges to yours – and was able to solve them effectively.
- Do their homework: Ask for referrals and actually follow up on them. Ask former clients questions about their satisfaction with the construction process and the end result.
- Get it in writing: Make sure your contractor writes in all of your costs and outlines any areas that may increase the quote – and the reasons why – so you don’t end up with surprises at the end of your project.
