Paradise Landscaping specializes in professional outdoor lighting at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Keep reading to learn about different outdoor lighting options for your landscape.



Deck & Patio Lighting
Deck and patio lighting can make a huge difference in the areas that you aren't quite ready to quit using. The weather is still nice enough that you don't want to stay inside, especially if you have a fire pit in your backyard; but if you can't see where the steps are, or where the edge of the patio is, it can make a nice area and unsafe area. Make your perfect paradise safe and beautiful!

Accent Lighting
Accent lighting helps you create a perfect atmosphere, while also not wasting any lighting. 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. There are many styles and colors to choose from as well, so you are sure to find something that matches your home's style while still achieving the practicality that you desire.

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.

Landscaping Tips for Before a Storm

If you have lived here at the Lake of the Ozarks for very long, then you are familiar with our weather and how we have seen our fair share of storms. There's nothing worse than having a large tree fall on your home and having to deal with the damages. The best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few landscaping tips you can implement before a storm so you are better prepared. For help with your landscaping changes, call Paradise Landscaping today at 573-964-6515.


Landscaping Tips for Before a Storm


Secure your trees.
Smaller, young trees are more easily knocked over by strong winds. Even though your trees may already be staked to the ground, pound the stakes even more into the ground to further secure your tree to the ground.

Trim your branches near the power lines.
One of the main issues that can happen during a storm is losing powers. One of the causes of that can be branches falling down and destroying power lines. To try and prevent this from happening, have your branches trimmed ahead of time so they are too short to fall on to your power lines.

Be sure your fountains and other water features are unplugged. 
Forgetting to unplug your fountains or any other water features can result in them getting fried by lightning. Long before the storm hits, secure all electrical chords and unplug any and all water features.

Keep your gutters free of debris.
Your gutters being clogged during a heavy rainstorm can amount to even more problems. Get your gutters cleaned before the storm or hire a professional landscaping company in Camden County to do it for you.



Stay up to date on the weather. 
Check the forecast and know what is expected with the weather. You may consider installing a weather application on your phone. Typically you will get notifications as to when bad weather is expected to come. There are several options to choose from, such as KY3 or KSPR Weather for example. You can list your location, so the application knows where to target your weather forecasting.

3 Reasons Why Leaves Should Be Removed From Your Lawn

Fall is here and you know that means - the leaves will be falling before you know it. While the leaves change color in the fall and it can be really pretty to look at for a while, eventually, those leaves will drop to your lawn. A bed of leaves on your lawn can actually cause some damage. Paradise Landscaping is here to give you a few reasons why leaves should be removed from your lawn. For leaf removal at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can count on, call the best landscaping company in Lake Ozark at 573-964-6515 today.


3 Reasons Why Leaves Should Be Removed From Your Lawn


Curb Appeal
Don't let your house be the eyesore on the block. Who wants to look at a bunch of dirty leaves all over your front lawn while they are walking their dog or out driving by? You have a couple of options. You can either spend a few hours raking the leaves and bagging them up OR you can call professional leaf removal company at the Lake of the Ozarks to do it for you. Either way, you should have your leaves removed.

Leaves Invite Pests
Avoid having little pests all over your lawn and get your leaves removed. Insects are attracted to piles of leaves where that they can relax and live in.

Lawn Health
Your lawn can have a hard time getting the nutrients it needs if it's covered by a massive layer of leaves.  Your lawn will need water and sunlight to survive, so allow it to have the nutrients it needs by making sure your leaves get removed.
