If you decide to try something new and choose a brand new color, you'll have many different colors to pick from!

Is Landscaping Really That Important When Selling Your Home? YES!

Have you decided to sell your home in 2019? If so, first of all, we'd like to say good luck in selling your home! One of the most important parts of attracting a buyer is to amp up your curb appeal. How do you do that? We suggest hiring the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks to make sure this is done right for you. Paradise Landscaping is here to present you with a few reasons to hire a professional landscaping company to make sure your landscape is looking good when trying to sell your home.



Save Money By Not Having to Buy the Tools Yourself.
There are a lot of tools involved in caring for your landscape properly. From mowers to edgers, and leaf blowers to power washers. If you don't have the necessary tools, not only is it time-consuming to go find them and then do the job yourself, but it's expensive as well. Allow our team to come take care of weekly tasks and keep your home looking great.

Keep Your Driveways and Sidewalks Looking Clean to Attract Buyers.
When you're preparing to sell your home, there are so many details to pay attention to, and it could be easy for something to get tossed by the wayside. Don't let your landscape become one of those things. Our team can come in and do the tasks you don't have time for, like power washing the sidewalks and driveways and trimming bushes.

Curb Appeal is Everything!
Curb appeal is one of the most important details when selling your home because it's the first thing a buyer will see. Not to mention, a lawn that is lacking in its paradise appearance can send a signal to the potential buyer that they will need to do a lot of work to the landscape. By hiring Paradise Landscaping to improve your Lake of the Ozarks landscape, you can show your potential buyers that the home is ready to move in and beautiful from the start.

Maintain Your Lawn Maintenance at ALL Times In Case a Buyer Shows Up.
Have you already moved away from your home? If you're not living there while trying to sell your home, it can be extremely valuable to have someone come out and not only check on your property, but also make sure it's still maintained. From mowing the grass, clearing branches that have fallen, or just clearing the sidewalks, we can help.


Hire Paradise Landscaping to Amp Up Your Curb Appeal When Trying to Sell Your Home!


We understand that finding the time to get these sorts of landscaping tasks done on your own can be a real struggle. That's where our landscaping company in Lake Ozark comes in. This is our specialty! Let us work our magic on your curb appeal when trying to sell your home and call 573-964-6515.

What Does Snow Really Do To Your Lawn? ❄️

Winter is coming soon! While that snow sure can look pretty out on your lawn, have you ever wondered what it is actually doing to your lawn? Our landscaping experts at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to give you the rundown of what snow can do to your lawn and give you reasons why it is important to have snow removed from your grass. For professional snow removal at the Lake of the Ozarks, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515 for your free quote. Snow can really have some damaging effects on your lawn.


Snow Can...

Create mold on your grass.
Have you ever head of snow mold? It's a real problem. Snow mold is a fungal disease that can develop on your lawn under the snow. Don't let snow stay piled up on your lawn for very long to try and prevent this disease from taking over.

Make you want to lay down rock salt, which also can be damaging to your lawn.
Rock salt is meant to dissolve the surface that is underneath it, which is why it's great for sidewalks and steps but not so much for your grass. If extra salt somehow gets on to your grass from your sidewalk, water those affected areas when you can, weather pending.

Create bald spots throughout your lawn.
Snow can cause your grass to go dormant, it can turn your grass brown and damage the lawn thoroughly. To prevent bald spots from occurring seed your lawn before the snow hits.

Can come with ice, which also kills grass.
The ice freezing your beautiful blades of grass is not good. Each time you on one of your family members steps on a frozen blade of grass, breaking it, it's somewhat like squishing a dead plant.


Remove Your Snow with Paradise Landscaping!


Our landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here for you! We don't want anyone to either feel trapped in their home because their driveway is so covered they can't pull their car out or to feel the anxiety of thinking their beautiful lawn is dying under all of that snow.

BONUS TO HIRING US FOR SNOW REMOVAL

Removing snow on your own can be very hard work and quite strenuous. Save yourself the trouble and the possible risk of injury and hire a professional who knows what they are doing. Experience counts when it comes to getting your home holiday ready and your snow removed.

No need to rent expensive snow removal equipment.
Snow removal equipment can be very costly and unnecessary. Save your time and money for your loved ones around the holidays, not unneeded snow removal equipment, that’s what the professionals are for.

Winterize Your Irrigation System with Paradise Landscaping

Winter officially starts December 21. It is not too late to get your irrigation system winterized. Failing to do so can cause your pipes to freeze and some seriously expensive damage. Avoid that by calling the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks. Paradise Landscaping specializes in winterizing irrigation systems at the Lake of the Ozarks. Keep reading to learn the answers to a few frequently asked questions we have received regarding irrigation system winterization.



What do I do when I'm ready to turn my system back on in the spring?
Call Paradise Landscaping! The spring is the perfect time to take a look at your irrigation system and make sure that nothing is broken or cracked. Before we fill the pipes back up we can perform our routine irrigation system maintenance to make sure everything is ready.

Can I use my air compressor to blow out my irrigation system?
While it may seem fairly simple to hook a nozzle up to your irrigation system and hit the power button, there is a lot more here at play. We use our expert knowledge in irrigation system winterization at the Lake of the Ozarks to make sure that the right amount of pressure is applied. If you add too much you risk damaging the valves and pipes, if you don't apply enough you won't get all of the water out. We've been doing this for years, and with those years of experience, we can help your irrigation system last longer.

Can't I just shut the water off?
You can shut the water off, but you are taking a gamble that all of the water will leak out and evaporate before the first freeze hits. The reason this is not always effective is that your pipes aren't just perfectly level and horizontal, in fact, there may be several peaks and dips, and if the water gathers there, you're risking that it will not get cleared out and freeze.

What is the best way to clean out the pipes?
One of the best methods is to apply a bit of air pressure to openings of your pipe and clear out the excess water that way.


Winterize Your Irrigation System with Paradise Landscaping


Keep your landscape lush with an irrigation system in the spring and summer, then have your irrigation system, properly winterized in the fall in time for winter. Proper irrigation is needed to assist in the growing and maintenance of landscapes during periods of inadequate rainfall and proper winterization of your system is needed to keep it in shape. We help you create your dream oasis at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks, which means everything from irrigation to pool maintenance. We specialize in everything from retaining walls, water features, trees and shrubs, sod, among other features, and oversee the design and full maintenance. Call us today for your free quote.

Sure, you could remove the snow yourself, but who has the time or energy for that? Let us help you. Keep reading for 3 reasons why you should have your snow removed by a local snow removal company in Lake Ozark.


3 Reasons to Have Your Snow Removed By a Local Company


Reason #1: Take less risk by not injuring yourself trying to remove your own snow.
Removing snow on your own can be very hard work and quite strenuous. Save yourself the trouble and the possible risk of injury and hire a professional who knows what they are doing. Experience counts when it comes to getting your business parking lot or residential driveway or sidewalk holiday ready and snow free.

"I love the creative beauty that comes from your team. From beautiful flowers to removing the leaves and snow. Thanks for taking such great care of our properties!" - Barbara Ruehter

Reason #2: Paradise Landscape Irrigation & Pool Maintenance is a local business. When you support a local business you support your own community.

Paradise has partnered with Lake of the Ozarks Watershed Alliance (LOWA) to promote a healthy lake through techniques in landscape design and plant selection. The business also donated materials and labor to the Osage Beach Chamber of Commerce sign monument and continues to provide maintenance. As you can see, we support our fellow businesses at the Lake of the Ozarks. It takes all of us to grow our community.

Reason #3: No need to rent expensive snow removal equipment.

Your Solution for Leaf Removal: Paradise Landscaping

Fall is in session and the leaves are falling! They can be so pretty to look at, but they can also be such a pain to deal with when they fall on your lawn, right? The best landscaping company the Lake of the Ozarks understands this which is why we provide prime leaf removal services here. Let us deal with the leaf mess so you can free up more of your time for fall fun. Call Paradise Landscaping today at 573-964-6515 for your free quote. Keep reading to learn a few key reasons as to why you should have your leaves removed as soon as possible.



Efficiency
While you can rake your entire yard and then find a way to dispose of the piles, you can also call the landscape maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks to do it. We are highly efficient at what we do, and because we have the best tools for the job already on hand, it can be accomplished quickly. From a large yard to small, we can clean up the leaves in your landscape, and then dispose of them properly. No more back breaking work raking the leaves, or bagging them up to dispose of, and even finding a place to dispose of them.

Leaves Can Kill
So, this is a bit over dramatic, but leaves really can kill your lawn! When leaves are left on your landscape, they can choke out the possibility of having a nice lawn in the spring. When you leave leaves on your landscape there are a few main things that can happen. First, as they stay continually damp, this encourages fungus and mold to grow and invade your landscape. As this covers your landscape, it chokes out the ability for your lawn to get oxygen. The second thing that can happen is that your landscape doesn't get the sunshine it needs. The sun helps to dry out the grass when it gets wet and keeps it set up for a good growing season in the spring.

Make It Safe
The winter months are generally wet and cold - which when combined with leaves that are still left on the ground can make for a very dangerous situation for you. If you're running to your front door to escape the cold weather, those wet leaves that you left on your yard and sidewalk have now created n environment perfect for slipping. Not to mention, leaves can block your view of what you're really stepping on. They can hide dips and holes in your landscape, as well as cracks and uneven surfaces in your hardscapes. If you hire the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we can help you not only remove the leaves but also clean of the other areas of your yard that need to be repaired and cleaned.


Your Solution for Leaf Removal: Paradise Landscaping


We specialize in making your home landscape feel like a paradise, the way it should be. Part of that process involves removing your leaves for you. Along with leaf removal, we also provide weekly mowing, trimming, and blowing off all hard surfaces. We offer a variety of services including turf treatments, tree & shrub fertilization, pruning maintenance, leaf collection & disposal, mulching, power washing, and home check-up services. For landscaping work, you can count on, call us at 573-964-6515 today.

Prepare Your Landscape for Thanksgiving with Paradise Landscaping!

Thanksgiving 2018 is less than a month away! How is your landscape looking? If you are worried that you won't be able to get all your landscaping work done on time to impress your guests with a great looking area, worry no more! The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to make your landscape look like your very own paradise. Paradise Landscaping specializes in turning home and business landscapes into dreamy oasis like spaces. Amp up your landscape for the holidays and call Paradise Landscaping today for your free quote. We can be reached 573-964-6515. Keep reading for a few tips for getting your landscape ready for Thanksgiving.



Power Wash Your Hardscapes
Finally, a quick way to make a beautiful impact on your landscaping before the holidays is to power wash your sidewalks and paths. After leaves have sat on them for a few weeks, you could notice some stains start to appear. Part of our landscape maintenance can include power washing, and you'll love the results it will have on your curb appeal.

Clear the Sidewalks
As your family makes their way inside your home, they'll need to use your sidewalks to get there. If your pathways are covered in old, wet leaves, sticks, and small rocks - it could provide a dangerous trek to your loved ones. Grab a broom or a leaf blower and make sure your paths are not only easy to walk on but also easy to see as well. Better yet, give our landscape maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks a call and we can take care of the detail for you!

Rake the Leaves
Leaves can add a pretty fall ambiance, but they can also cover your lawn. This can be unsightly after they have sat for several weeks and turned brown. After a good rain, it can also be dangerous as piles of leaves can be slippery to walk on. Finally, leave introduce mold and mildew to your landscaping, and while you might think it's okay to leave them for a while, the longer they sit, the longer they can do damage to your grass. At Paradise Landscaping, not only can we rake the leaves, but we can also dispose of them for you!

Prune Your Bushes
If your bushes and shrubs got a little hairy over the warm fall, now is a great time to take care of them and bring them back to their original shape. If you have bushes, they can be one of the boldest signs that you haven't been keeping up with your landscaping - even if everything else is managed. They can cover up windows with their overgrowth, and make your home appear more run down. If you don't have time to take the hedge clippers out and regain control - we would love to assist you.


Prepare Your Landscape for Thanksgiving with Paradise Landscaping!

Deck & Patio Lighting
Deck and patio lighting can make a huge difference in the areas that you aren't quite ready to quit using.

Accent lights are more precise beams, and they put the light exactly where you intend with less wasted outdoor lighting. This creates a dramatic effect that brings a home to life, and considering your home will be in the dark for longer than in the summer months - this is important.

Path Lighting
If you didn't realize how important pathway lighting is, you'll realize it once it gets dark early and you can't see your way when you get home. Kichler LED pathway lighting is unmatched in the industry of outdoor lights. Pathway lights and spread lights create an elegant atmosphere in your garden areas and walkways.

Things You May Not Know to Do to Prepare Your Landscape for the Cold

The cold is here but it's going to get colder. What will you do to prepare your landscape for these approaching colder temperatures? First step, call a professional landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks you can trust to ensure your landscape gets the best treatment out there. The second step, sit back and relax and let Paradise Landscaping handle the rest. Keep reading to learn a few things you may not know to do to prepare your landscape for the cold. If you don't have the time or want to do these things on your own, call 573-964-6515 today for your free quote.


Things You May Not Know to Prepare Your Landscape for the Cold


Protect the deck.
Prevent the growth of mold and mildew by giving the deck a good power wash. If you don’t have a pressure washer, you can rent one from a garden store. Once the deck is clean and dry, add a weatherproofing stain to protect the wood from moisture damage over the winter.

Prune trees and shrubs.
Trim any dead branches and cut back overgrown trees and bushes. If you have blooming perennials like clematis or roses, now is the time to prune them and train the branches.

Till the vegetable garden.
After the final harvest, pull out old vegetable plants, remove debris, and completely till the whole plot. If you compost, now is the time to add a layer of compost to help nurture your soil for planting next spring.

Feed the lawn.
Send your yard into winter with the nutrients it needs to survive the long, cold sleep. Add a fall lawn fertilizer with high phosphorus content to encourage root growth and enjoy a lush, green lawn come spring.

Plant bulbs, shrubs, and fall annuals.
Some plants do best when planted in the fall. If you want to add new shrubs or spring bulbs like hyacinth, now is the time to get them in the ground. Fall annuals like pansies are also a great addition to keep some color in your yard as other plants go to sleep.

Aerate.
Break up soil to keep water from pooling and guarantee that nutrients will reach the roots over the winter. A garden fork will do the job for small yards, but larger yards may require a walk-behind aerator, which should be available to rent for a reasonable price.
