July is National Grilling Month – Host the Perfect Party on Your Patio!


It's summer 2019 and parties on the patio are "where it is at!"  Summer is the time for the best outdoor cooking, so it is no surprise that July is National Grilling Month – what a perfect time to host a party on your patio!   If you plan to have several people over to your house this summer, make sure your patio is up to par this year!  The best hardscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks can help.  Paradise Landscaping specializes in making your outdoor areas feel like a home paradise!  Keep reading for a few tips on how to BEAUTIFY your patio and throw an incredible patio party this summer from the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Clean Outdoor Areas

Make sure your concrete areas, patios and seating areas, walkways, and any other outdoor areas look fresh and clean by scheduling a power washing close to the day of your party.  Contact Paradise Landscaping for a professional power-washing job, done in time for the big event!


Make Sure You Have Plenty of Seating

Have you ever been to a patio party and you felt like you had to stand the whole time?  It's pretty uncomfortable, right?  Give your guests plenty of seating on the patio.  Whether you bring in easy folding chairs or buy more patio chairs - just be sure you have enough seating for everyone.  You can also look into wall seating, which can be a convenient patio feature.

Having a professional lay down pavers surrounding your existing patio can make for a more intricate design and can ADD MORE ROOM.  Our Lake Ozark landscape design company specializes in patio creation.  We can help you come up with the best patio design and then we can lay down the pavers and bricks and make a unique patio that fits what you want.  Think of grilling spaces, firepits, and patios with space for all the seating you will need.  All of these are what will create a great atmosphere in your Lake of the Ozarks landscape, and will add to your fantastic patio party!

Add Unique Outdoor Pieces

Add unique outdoor pieces that complement your patio made from old furniture or fun flea market finds.  You can get really creative here and use old pieces of furniture on your patio display.  For example, if you have any old step ladders laying around, you can turn those into plant holders that can be placed on your patio.  BONUS: This is also a great opportunity to add more seating in a fun and creative fashion.


Complement your Patio with the RIGHT Lighting

Set the mood and make for a safer evening patio party by purchasing patio lights. You can use string lights or a more permanent lighting solution.  Lighting around your landscape, patio, and water features is not only beautiful, but it's an important safety feature, as well.

From the latest intelligent LED options to traditional incandescent choices, Paradise offers Kichler's complete landscape collection and it delivers exactly what you need.

We offer the Design Pro LED series of fixtures for virtually every outdoor application, including:

  • Decorative path and spread
  • Low profile hardscape
  • Water feature
  • Deck & patio
  • Accent lighting

Kichler offers a 15 years or 40,000 hours warranty, whichever comes first!

Contact Paradise Landscape, Irrigation, and Maintenance for your outdoor landscape lighting needs at Lake of the Ozarks.

Plant Beautiful Flowers Around Your Patio

Nothing beautifies an outdoor space more than colorful flowers that complement your setting.  Plant them in pots and place the pots on your patio columns or highlight your space by planting flowers in the ground near your patio.  The sky is the limit when it comes to beautifying your patio and it's all about what suits you and your family's lifestyle the best.  Adding color to your patio area with flowers will make your patio party stand out from all the rest!


Add a Water Feature to your Patio

Have you ever been to someone else's patio and admired their beautiful water feature on their patio?  Did you think, "there's no way I'd ever have time to install something like that on my patio"?  We can help you make that dream a reality.  Waterfalls or fountains look amazing on patios and can really add to the relaxing feel you want at your next patio party.

SPEAKING OF WATER….

While homeowners love to have a space to entertain, they are loving the availability of a lake view.  Thankfully, when you are looking for a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can snag a home with a view.  Even if it's not a waterfront view, a view, in general, will really make a great impression on your landscape living area.

BEAUTIFY YOUR PATIO WITH PARADISE LANDSCAPING


In order to throw the best patio party, you have to have a great patio, right?  Impress your guests with a freshly polished, pristine looking patio.  If you are in need of a company to either make improvements to your existing patio or lay down a new one, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515.  We specialize in hardscaping projects including patios.

We believe that we can create a much better landscape or hardscape design for our clients if we can talk to them and get their ideas of what they want.  Our staff members will work with you to fully understand what you are wanting out of patio makeover.  Then, we will create your dream oasis of an outdoor space.  So, if you are interested in a landscape or hardscape design that fits your home and lifestyle, call Paradise Landscape Irrigation & Pool Maintenance today.

Protect Your Paradise This 4th of July

You've worked all summer to keep your lawn looking beautiful, and then the Fourth of July comes around. Between you and the kids, there are burns marks and colorful smoke rings from the smoke bombs all around the yard and sidewalks. If every year you end up wishing you would have taken more preventative measures, then this is the year to start!

At Paradise Landscaping, we want to help you take care of your lawn all year long, even when the fireworks start popping. Here are a few tips to help keep your yard damage-free this year for Fourth of July.


PICK THE RIGHT SPOT

When you're lighting your own fireworks, it's important to make sure that you pick a safe location in your yard. You want to keep ground-based fireworks about 30 feet away from everything, and aerial products should be at least 100 feet away. You don't want to light fireworks in any area that is covered in tall dry grass that could be flammable, and you don't want to put them in a space where sparks could fly and hit something like a house, shed, animals, propane tanks, or electricity.

USE FLAT, PROTECTED SURFACES

Always light fireworks on a hard, flat, and level surface to ensure the stability of the items. One of the best ways to protect your landscape is by putting down a large flat board to light the fireworks from. This will make it less likely that the shooting sparks will land in your yard, creating a dark, burnt spot where you were lighting them. The same applies if you'll be lighting fireworks on a sidewalk. You can protect your area from unsightly marks by putting a large piece of wood down. Make sure that what you use does not have flammable fibers sticking off of it.

KEEP WATER NEARBY

Always keep a bucket of water nearby when you are lighting fireworks. This is for two purposes: one, you can put out fires quickly if something gets out of hand, but you can also dunk fireworks into the water when they are done to make sure that any flames are completely out.


SUPERVISE CHILDREN

There's something about fireworks that leaves so many kids in awe. The glowing sky just fills them with wonder, but it also makes the curious and excited to get out there and try it themselves. Always keep the audience (and particularly children!) a safe distance away from the shooting site. There are plenty of fireworks that are safe for children, but they should be handled appropriately for safety's sake. Make sure children are always supervised, and store fireworks in a place that kids can't get to on their own. Teach them about fire safety and making sure that flames are completely out before discarding leftover fireworks.

SAFELY CLEAN UP 

The morning after the Fourth of July can lack its luster when you realize that you need to clean up all the papers and exploded pieces from your fireworks the night before. Make sure that nothing has a chance of rekindling before placing it in a trash bag. If you have larger fireworks, you can place them in a bucket of water overnight to make sure they are completely snuffed out. The same can apply for those dud fireworks. After you've given them ample time to go off, and they haven't, place them in the bucket of water just to be sure that nothing will re-kindle accidentally and go off when least expected.

Prepare Your Landscape for a Beautiful Outdoor Wedding


June is a popular month to get married.  While you may not be having a June wedding this year, perhaps you are engaged, and you are still in the planning stage of your wedding.  Whenever your wedding may be, it is important that you have a venue that you love.  Many people choose to get married outside at their homes or at the homes of their friends or family.  That being said, the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few tips on how to prepare your landscape for a beautiful outdoor wedding.  It’s never too early to start planning and Paradise Landscaping is here to help you get a plan together for your wedding-day landscape.


Tips to Prepare Your Landscape for an Outdoor Wedding 


Get Greener Grass

This is your BIG day.  If you are planning to host a wedding ceremony and a reception in your backyard, you will want your yard to look its very best.  Chances are, several photos will be taken during this special occasion, and loved ones that mean most to you will be attending.  Impress your guests with an outstanding lawn that really pops.  Consider using sod or hiring a professional landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks to come in months before your wedding to apply fertilizer treatments.

Set the Mood with Outdoor Lighting

Make your backyard look like a starry night with magnificent outdoor lighting.  Not only is outdoor lighting beautiful, but it is also an important safety feature.  Since you will be having several guests at your wedding and reception, all in one general area, we highly recommend having professional outdoor lighting at the Lake of the Ozarks.  We are a Preferred Vendor of Kichler LED Lighting.  From the latest intelligent LED options to traditional incandescent choices, Paradise offers Kichler's complete landscape collection and it delivers exactly what you need to accent your beautiful wedding backdrop. 


Polish Your Patio Design for Stunning Outdoor Seating

Impress your guests and make for a nice backdrop for a few wedding photos with a patio that shines amongst the rest.  This can also be a great place for your catering and possibly a few of your guests to sit and eat.  Consider using this as a transitional space, possibly even for use as a dance floor or DJ station.  Get it done right the first time and hire Paradise Landscaping to take care of your hardscaping needs for you.

Clean Outdoor Areas

Make sure your concrete areas, patios, walkways, dancefloor, and any other outdoor areas look fresh and clean by scheduling a power washing close to the day of your wedding.  Contact Paradise Landscaping for a professional power-washing job, done in time for your big day!

 

Consider a Gazebo

How beautiful would it be to get married under a gazebo? You'd be surprised by all the additions we can make to your backyard.

Create a Cohesive Landscape Design with Flowers that Match Your Color Scheme

Do you know your color scheme yet?  While your initial impulse may be to fill your garden with a rainbow of colorful blooms, take some time to work with your Lake of the Ozarks Landscape Designers to plan out a design that includes beautiful flowers (planted ahead of time) that will bloom beautifully by your big day, AND that will correspond with your wedding color scheme.

Prepare Your Landscape for a Beautiful Outdoor Wedding with Paradise Landscaping

Ideas for a GREEN Landscape


When people refer to the term “going green,” many things can come to mind – conserving energy, saving money…and even beautifying your landscape! Green is Paradise Landscaping’s favorite color, and the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you some GREEN insight on how to save some money by making your landscape more energy efficient!  We hope you will try out a few of these tips and let us know what works for you.

Identify the Climate in Your Region


Depending on where you live, your tactics for energy efficiency may be different. Missouri is considered a cool/temperate region, but if you live at the Lake of the Ozarks, you know our weather can be unpredictable. It’s important to maximize the warmth of the sun in the winter and shade in the summer. If you live on the Lake or near a pond, your property’s humidity may be increased, or your air temperature decreased. Understanding your location can help you to take the most logical and efficient approach to save money with your landscaping.

Do Your Research & Plan, Plan, Plan!


Planning is key when it comes to landscaping, especially energy-efficient landscaping. This type of landscaping requires planning and research because in this case, there’s much more to it than just aesthetics. For the highest quality and greatest results, trust the best landscape design company at the Lake of the Ozarks. We take energy-efficiency into careful consideration when creating every landscape design.  This means that each design is unique to its property, which ups the quality factor even more. 

Plant Trees with Energy Savings in Mind


According to Better Homes & Gardens, shade trees have been proven to cool your yard by up to six whole degrees, and they can also save up to 25% of your home’s energy when it comes to heating and cooling. By shading your home and roof, you can save your air conditioner from working harder than it needs to. Trees don’t just provide shade though; they can also act as windbreaks. When landscaping at the Lake of the Ozarks, using windbreaks during the winter is ideal. Plant these trees along the north or northwest side of your home to help to slash winter heating bills by up to 30 percent!


GO GREEN WITH PARADISE LANDSCAPING

These are just a few of the many ways to make your landscape efficient! For more information on a GREEN landscape, call the best landscape designers at the Lake of the Ozarks. Paradise Landscaping has an educated and friendly staff that would be happy to help you in your next landscaping endeavor. As the name entails, Paradise serves to create your dream oasis at the Lake of the Ozarks. Create the perfect (ENERGY-EFFICIENT) vacation getaway in your own backyard!

Impact Lighting

Landscape lighting has always had a foot in the door with trends, but it's really improving it's game this year. Homeowners across the country are adding landscape lighting to their water features, their gardens, walkways, stairways and more. Not only can this improve the safety of your yard because anyone walking through it can see where their going to adequate confidence of where they are stepping.

Local Little Details

Just like shopping local has become a trend in the last few years, it's also trendy to utilize local materials for your landscaping. Instead of selecting an exotic stone pavers from another country, home owners are more apt to include stone from the local area. The same is applied to the trees and even flowers. By using local landscaping details, not only are you improving the surrounding area by not incorporating strange plants, but you are reiterating local beauty.


Lush Living Spaces

This has been increasing in popularity for a while now, but it's not going anywhere for a while either! When someone either wants to buy a new house, or wants to revamp their current landscape, an area for entertaining is becoming a must. If you want to sell your home in the future, adding one now can be a wonderful investment in your home! Think of grilling spaces, firepits, and patios with a space for seating. All of these are what create a great atmosphere in your Lake of the Ozarks landscape.

Waterfront Entertaining

While home owners love to have a space to entertain, they are loving the availability of a lake view. Thankfully, when you are looking for a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can snag a home with a view. Even if it's not a waterfront view, and view in general will really make a great impression on your landscape living area.
