The Dos & Don'ts of Adding a Water Feature to Your Landscape

Are you looking to give your landscape a makeover? Are you looking to give your backyard a more relaxing feel or a more beautiful look? Sometimes just one big addition can make all the difference. The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you the dos and don'ts of adding a water feature to your landscape. If you'd like to add a water feature to your landscape, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515.


The Dos & Don'ts of Adding a Water Feature to Your Landscape


The Dos

Do monitor your water pump.
Most water features can require a pump to operate properly. Check your pump regularly and make sure it doesn't overheat. Your pump makes your water flow and is the heart of your water feature. Making sure it doesn't burn out is essential.

Do plan, plan, plan.
When we say plan, think about the future. What is your purpose for this feature and what are you hoping to get out of it? Water features can attract water life, such as deer - so, if you are looking to bring beautiful wildlife into your backyard because you like to sit back and watch, then plan accordingly and put your water feature in an area that can be seen from where you typically sit in your front or backyard.



The Don'ts

Don't let your ponds leak.
Leaks in manmade ponds can be a mess! Prevent them as much as possible by calling your local landscaping professional for regular maintenance.

Don't forget about safety.
Do you have small children that live with you? Be mindful of this when deciding on a water feature for your yard as a manmade pond can pose a drowning risk to small children.

Don't awkwardly place your water feature in the wrong space.
Putting a waterfall in the center of your front yard can look awkward and not give you the relaxing feel it's meant to. Ask a landscaping professional advice when deciding where to put this beautiful new addition.

It's National Garden Week! (First Full Week of June)

This week is National Garden Week, so it's an exciting time for the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks because we have laid down quite a few garden beds for our customers. It's always a joy to build home paradises for our customers and have a part in them enjoying themselves whether they live here seasonally or full time. In honor of National Garden Week, Paradise Landscaping is here to give you a few garden design tips.



Garden Design Tips


Tip #1
Watch the width of your pathways.
Keep in mind, if you are planning to start a huge garden this year, your pathways should be wide enough for 2 people to walk through side by side. If you're working this hard on your beautiful garden, you may want to show it off too. We suggest creating pathways throughout your garden that are no less than 5 feet wide for comfort.


Tip #2
Be strategic with the plants you choose, some create more comfort than others.
Tall shrubs can provide shade, evergreens can protect your garden from heavy winds, and tall ornamental grasses can provide privacy if planted and cared for correctly.


Tip #3
Keep “your view” in mind.
Plants grow to be tall, so don't plant them in a place where your beautiful view of the Lake may be blocked in the future.


Tip #4
Make sure your steps throughout your garden are secure.
There's nothing worse than taking a friend through a garden to show them the incredible progress it has made, and they trip over a poorly placed stone step. If you are unsure as to what to do to secure it, call Paradise Landscaping. We can help.


Tip #5
Give your flowers or vegetables plenty of room to grow.
You don't want your flowers and vegetables growing too close to each other. That can cause problems for you in the future, so keep that in mind when planting them.



Interested in Having the Professionals Design Your Garden?


Use our expertise to your advantage! Your garden should be an essential part of your oasis. We can take the stress of planning and implementing your garden design off your hands. We know that we can create a much better landscape design for our clients if we can talk to them and get their ideas of what they want.  We will work with you to produce your dream garden and landscape.

Pool Maintenance FAQs

There's nothing worse than being ready for a pool party but realizing your pool filter doesn't work or realizing green algae has grown inside your pool. How gross is that? Problems like this can be prevented by regular pool maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks. For pool maintenance, you can count on, call Paradise Landscape, Irrigation, & Pool Maintenance at Lake of the Ozarks at 573-964-6515. Keep reading for a few answered frequently asked questions regarding pool maintenance.


Pool Maintenance FAQs


Q: How do I know how long to run my pool pump for?

A: It depends. The piping size, pool size, and swimmer load determine how long you should run your pool pump for. Typically, it's safe to run your pump for about one hour for every ten degrees of temperature.

Q: How do I know when to clean my pool filter?

A: The pool filter plays an important role in keeping your pool sanitary. There are different kinds of pool filters and they each require regular cleaning and the more you use your pool the more often it will probably need to be cleaned. If you find an increase in flow between the pressure gauge and flow meter, that could sign you to clean your filter.

Q: How do I know if my pool has too much chlorine in it?

A: If your pool looks cloudy, it could mean there is too much chlorine in it. If you are unsure about the chlorine levels in your pool, it's best to call a professional pool maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks and consult with them. Too much chlorine in your pool could cause the following:
  • Red eyes for swimmers
  • Skin irritation for swimmers
  • Greenish looking hair for blonde haired swimmers

When, How, and Why to Irrigate Your Lawn Properly

Those warmer months are now upon us and irrigating your lawn properly is more important than ever, but how will you go about it? Irrigating your lawn isn't as simple as just as watering it in the morning once a month or so, there's a process for getting it done properly. If you find yourself not having the time to do this yourself, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515 today for your free quote. Paradise Landscape, Irrigation, and Pool Maintenance is well known as the best landscape company at Lake of the Ozarks ... and it's no accident! Keep reading to learn when, how, and why to irrigate your lawn properly.


When, How, and Why to Irrigate Your Lawn Properly


When to Irrigate Your Lawn

Every lawn is different and "the when" behind watering or irrigating lawns can differ depending on the type of soil. For example, clay soil lawns tend to respond best to being watered once a week. However, it can be difficult to remember to do that on your own each week, so having an automatic sprinkler system installed could be the best option for you, especially if this is for your vacation home.


How to Irrigate Your Lawn

It can be very easy to over water or under water your lawn if you are not careful. The best way to go about irrigating your lawn involves knowing yourself. If you are the type of person who is easily distracted and could forget about your hose being on, then invest in a timer that connects to your hose. You can program it to only water your lawn for a specified time of your choosing, thus allowing you to go about your day without worrying about over watering your lawn.


Why Irrigate Your Lawn

Neglecting to water or irrigate your lawn can lead to an eyesore surrounding your home and who wants that? Make your home more inviting and have a lush, healthy-looking lawn by assuring it's irrigated in the proper way.


Interested in Having the Professionals Irrigate Your Lawn for You?


Keep your landscape lush with an irrigation system. Proper irrigation is needed to assist in the growing and maintenance of landscapes during periods of inadequate rainfall. Paradise Landscaping can install a quality irrigation system for you at an affordable price. We aim to make your home or vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks feel like a paradise and installing an irrigation system you can rely on is part of that.

How to Give Your Mother Her Dream Flower Garden

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, falling on Sunday, May 13 this year. That’s only about 1 week away! Do you know what you are getting your mother for Mother’s Day yet? What mom doesn’t love flowers on Mother’s Day? Planted flowers tend to last a lot longer than flowers wrapped in plastic and handed to someone. Paradise Landscape, Irrigation, & Pool Maintenance is here to give you a few tips to give your mother her dream flower garden this year. If this sounds like too much work that you either don’t have time for or is too labor intensive, don’t worry, the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks has you covered. Keep reading for a few flower suggestions for this time of year.


Spring Flowers for Your Mother’s Garden


Pansy
Pansies are annual flowers that are great to plant in early spring and watch as they bloom and grow throughout the year. This flower grows best in moist soil in sunny so partly shaded areas. They grow to about 10 inches tall and 12 inches wide.

Hellebore
These flowers can bloom with beautiful shades of white with splashes of pink, yellow or maroon. Hellebores are deer-resistant and grow best in partly shaded areas.

Stella D’Oro Daylily
These little beauties are bright yellow and grow in the spring through the summer. They tend to bloom again in early fall.

Yellow Trillium
This flower is another yellow beauty. Once this flower plant dies at the end of spring the foliage recedes as well. The Yellow Trillium does best in shady areas.

Viola
Is your mother a lover of purple? Then the Viola can be perfect to go in her Mother’s Day garden. While the Viola grows in purple, it can bloom into mixes of white, blue and yellow.


Happy Mother’s Day to All Moms from Paradise Landscaping

Keep the Pests Away from Your Landscape with These Plants

Spring has sprung and the pests know it. Have you had any issues with certain uninvited guests coming to your lawn, such as mosquitos or other insects? If so, this blog is for you! The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to suggest a few plants to add to your landscape that can help keep the pests away. If you'd like to bypass the work it takes to add these plants yourself, call Paradise Landscaping at 573-964-6515. Check out the following plants to help keep the pests away.


Keep the Pests Away from Your Landscape with These Plants


Citronella
Citronella is great for keeping the mosquitos away! It masks the scents that attract mosquitos, mainly the carbon dioxide and lactic acid we produce. It can grow to a height of about 5 to 6 feet and you can either plant it in a pot or directly in the group with other plants. We can position this plant, however, suits your particular paradise the best.


Rosemary
While rosemary is a great herb to have around for cooking purposes, it can also help keep mosquitoes, flies, ants, and other insects away. When planting rosemary, it's important that the seeds are planted at least 2 to 3 feet away from one another.


Lavender
Lavender can repel moths, flies, fleas, and mosquitoes. It should be planted in sunny areas to grow the best and to keep pests away. Try planting it:

  • Near your entryway
  • Near windows
  • Near the back door 
...to keep pests from entering your home.



Catnip
While cats clearly love catnip, it's also a great natural insect repellant. Catnip grows like weeds. It should be planted in spring after the last frost and spaced 18 to 24 inches apart.

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.

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.

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.

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.
