Adding plants, changing existing terrain, and building structures are all part of landscaping. Today, landscaping refers to the planning, design, and construction of gardens that enhance the appearance and create usable space for outdoor activities around a home. The land needs at least a little preparation before you can start installing the gardening elements. General preparation often includes removing existing lawns or landscaping, removing rocks or other debris, and leveling the ground.
The specific preparation steps depend on the current state of the yard and the type of landscaping you are doing. If you're just adding a small garden, preparation will involve removing the lawn and amending the soil. If you are building a cobblestone yard, preparation might involve removing the lawn and leveling the ground in preparation for the paver base. Landscapers Elevate the Appearance of Outdoor Spaces.
They do this by planting beautiful flowers, plants, and shrubs; tending lawns; and trimming hedges to make residential, commercial, and public spaces more aesthetically pleasing. The professional landscape industry is wide. There are many career specialists whose work obligations play an important role in the health, well-being and beauty of the landscapes we enjoy. For example, the work of an agronomist is most closely associated with what he does underground, with soils and soil science, whereas an arborist works above ground, specializing in planting and maintaining trees.
There are professionals who spend a good part of their days outdoors and those who like to spend time indoors, on the phone, on a computer or in a science laboratory. There are those who work in the field and those who supply essential products and equipment to create and maintain landscapes. Landscaping professionals include entry-level employees, executives and CEOs. The term “landscaping maintenance” may lead one to believe that it includes a number of different services, but it is a rather vague term.
Here at Hanson Landscape, our garden maintenance services include cutting, pruning, tree removal, edging, cultivation, fertilization and broadleaf application. While some of these terms are obvious landscaping terms that most people know, such as mowing lawns and removing trees, many people don't really know what the other services entail.

Soft landscapes generally refer to landscaping facilities and services that involve plants and other organic materials such as grass, annuals, perennials, shrubs, and more. A landscaper can also supply and install elements that involve water, such as fish ponds, swimming pools and pool gardens, and fountains, along with structures around them to disguise their functional components. Design is the first step in any landscaping project and involves gathering ideas and creating blueprints.
