Landscaping Mistakes to Avoid at Your Home


Too many lawn ornaments
It is very possible to have too many lawn ornaments in your lawn. If you put too many in your lawn, it can distract from the natural beauty and make your landscape look busy.

Ignoring curb appeal.
Allowing your lawn to overgrow or your leaves to pile up on top of your lawn are both parts of ignoring your curb appeal. If you don’t have the time to keep up with these sorts of things, we understand. Hire a professional landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks to take care of it for you.

Not researching your plants enough before planting them.
Not looking into your plants before planting them can be a HUGE landscaping mistake for a number of reasons, such as:

Your plants could grow too high and block your view of the Lake
If it’s a flower plant, it could bloom into the wrong color and clash with your existing landscape

Feeling Like You HAVE to have a lawn.
Just because your neighbors may have a lawn doesn’t mean you HAVE to have a lawn. There are actually quite a few other landscaping options that you can have in place of a grass lawn. Your local landscape experts in Lake Ozark can help you decide what may work best for you by going over some of the best options.

Not planning for professional landscaping help.
If you know you aren’t going to be to make the time to take care of that flower garden, for example, then plan for that and hire a professional landscaping company. Don’t just plant it and ignore it after. It can become an eyesore if you do.

Don't Forget About Your Leaves!

Many people seem to think fall is the only time you need to worry about your leaves falling, but unfortunately, they are wrong. Leaves continue to fall well into the spring also. The best leaf removal company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to tell you why you should have your leaves removed in the spring too. For leaf removal, you can count on, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515 or visit our website at www.DesignYourParadise.com.


Don't Forget About Your Leaves!


Reason #1
Leaves can delay your grass from growing.
Layers of leaves block your lawn from getting the air flow it needs. Without healthy air flow, your lawn may not be able to grow as it should.

Reason #2
Piles of leaves invite pests.
Leaves make for a great habitat for uninvited pests and insects. Keep those pests away and get your leaves removed in a timely manner.

Reason #3
Layers of leaves can prevent your lawn from getting the nutrients it needs.
The leaves create a blocking barrier, making it difficult for your lawn to get the water and nutrients it needs to survive.

Reason #4
Prevent brown patch from occurring.
Brown patch is a disease that appears on your lawn in brown and yellowish circles. This looks very displeasing to the eye and you can prevent this from happening by making sure your leaves are removed on a normal basis.

Reason #5
Prevent snow mold from happening.
Similar to brown patch, snow mold causes your grass to be discolored as well. Snow mold involves white to grayish webbing throughout your lawn. Don't ruin your lawn with snow mold and have your leaves removed today.


Interested in Having Your Leaves Removed by Professionals?


Leaf removal can be strenuous and time-consuming work if you try to do it on your own. Paradise Landscaping has the equipment and manpower to get your leaves removed from the lawn at your home or business in a timely and efficient manner. Along with leaf removal, we offer weekly mowing, trimming, and blowing off all hard surfaces. We also offer a variety of services including turf treatments, tree & shrub fertilization, pruning maintenance, mulching, power washing, and home check-up services.

The Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn

First of all, what's “aerating your lawn” mean? Aerating your lawn is where you puncture your lawn with holes to allow for air, water, and nutrients to reach the grassroots. This helps your lawn to grow stronger and better. The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you information on when, how and why you should aerate your lawn. If your lawn needs some work done, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515.



When Should You Have Your Lawn Aerated?


When you should have your lawn aerated depends on what type of grass you have. If you have cool season grass, then have it aerated in the early spring or fall, if you have warm season grass then have it aerated in late spring.


How Should Your Have Your Lawn Aerated?


Aerating requires you to check the soil and make sure its moist enough. So, it's best to wait after a rainy day or to water your lawn the day before. Aerating can require a lot of work and if you don't have the time for it, our landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here for you.


"Paradise did an excellent job on my landscaping. They worked with my time frame and were incredibly helpful. I do not have a green thumb in any way and they took the time to teach me how to care for each type of plant. I thought one was dying a few days after it was planted and they came out that same morning to check on it. I had not been watering it enough so they explained what setting on the sprayer I should use and for how long. They have truly went above and beyond to "design my paradise." - Katie Royal

Why Should You Have Your Lawn Aerated?


You should have your lawn aerated for a number of reasons. If your lawn gets a lot of heavy traffic, such as:
  • Your kids play on it frequently
  • Your pets run around on it
  • You host a lot of outdoor parties
...Then you should probably get your lawn aerated. Heavy traffic contributes to soil compaction.

5 Great Addition Ideas to Your Landscape This Spring

Spring is here and what an exciting time it is for landscaping. It's the perfect time to make some beautiful additions to your home or business landscape. The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few ideas for some great additions to your landscape this spring. If you need some landscaping assistance, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515 today or visit our website at www.DesignYourParadise.com.


Great Addition Ideas to Your Landscape This Spring


Addition Idea #1
A water fountain
The sound of running water on your landscape can be calming and relaxing. Water fountains are beautiful and may even increase the value or your home. You can also attract some beautiful wildlife, such as birds or deer who may drink from it.

Addition Idea #2
A retaining wall
Retaining walls can be a great addition to your landscape because they make land that can't really be used, usable. If your lawn is in a slope form and you 'd really like to have a vegetable garden, adding a retaining can help you have a level garden, which can be easier to manage.

Addition Idea #3
A flower bed
Spring is a beautiful time of year with all the flowers blooming. Bring some of that beauty to your landscape by adding a flower garden. To get into the spirit of spring, here are a few spring flowers:

  • Daffodils
  • Tulips
  • Cherry Blossoms
  • Peonies
  • Forget-me-nots
  • Primroses



Addition Idea #4
Trees
Trees provide shade and can decrease your air conditioning bill in the warmer months. By planting trees around your home, you are shading it, which can create a cooler space.

Addition Idea #5
Fresh mulch
The odds are you haven't had your mulch freshened up since last spring, so now is the time to freshen up that mulch. Old mulch can look gravel like and be displeasing to look at, so don't let your mulch be an eyesore in your backyard and call Paradise Landscaping.

Tips for Cleaning Your Lawn this Spring

Spring is practically here! Ok, it technically doesn’t start until March 20, but your landscape needs to be spring ready. Having trouble accomplishing that on your own? Call the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks at 573-964-6515. Paradise Landscaping is here to give you a few key tips to get your lawn in spring shape.


Tips for Cleaning Your Lawn This Spring


Tip #1
Remove all litter, dog droppings, and debris from your lawn.
Spring clean your lawn and give it the makeover it needs, by starting with removing this unwanted debris.


Tip #2
Rake all leaves.
If you let your leaves pile up and just sit on your lawn, you could be damaging your beautiful grass. Hire a leaf removal company at the Lake of the Ozarks as soon as possible.


Tip #3
Give your plants some love.
Start fertilizing your plants if you haven’t already, so they are good for the season.

"I glanced out the window at the signs of spring. The sky was almost blue, the trees were almost budding, the sun was almost bright." - Millard Kaufman

Tip #4
Freshen up your mulch
If your mulch hasn’t been freshened up in a while, do not just add a new layer of mulch over the old mulch. This can cause rot and just give your landscape a negative look. Have your mulch changed out and refreshed.


Tip #5
Prune old bushes.
Pruning your bushes can be dangerous if you are inexperienced and haven’t done it before, you could accidentally injure yourself, so be sure to call a professional. Your branches could have experienced some damage over the seasons, so freshen them up by pruning them.

Why Should I Hire a Landscaping Company to Take Care of the Landscape at My Business?

Your business is your legacy. You have worked hard to get it where it is today. You have put so much time and effort into it and still are doing so to this day. How will you have time to manage the landscape for your business?

Why Should I Hire a Landscaping Company to Take Care of the Landscape at My Business?


Reason #1
This would be a HUGE time saver
Managing your lawn work and landscape can take hours every week that you don't have. Save yourself some time and hire a professional landscaping company.

Reason #2
To keep your landscape consistent looking
If you try to do this yourself, without the experience and expertise a professional landscape company offers, the odds are your lawn is going to look slightly different each time. This is your business, so you'll want to have a professional looking entryway and landscape, so consistency is key.

Reason #3
To save money by not having to buy professional landscape equipment
Landscaping equipment can be expensive. Save yourself thousands of dollars by not buying it and just hiring someone to manage your landscape.

Reason #4
To gain the expertise of someone who has been doing this for a long time
For example, Paradise has evolved over the past five years, working hard to assemble the best management staff to design the perfect paradise. The business specializes in everything from retaining walls, water features, trees and shrubs, sod, among other features, and oversees the design and full maintenance.

Reason #5
The designs that a landscape company can “bring to the table”
It can be very difficult to think creatively when it comes to your landscape, but if you hire someone who has years of experience creating landscape designs, then you are making things much easier on yourself. For example, Rick Harris, our designer, has 46 years of experience in the field of Horticulture, Retail Garden Center Management, and Landscape Design. That's 46 years of learning and knowing what and how large plants will become.
