Now that summer is here you may enjoy looking at residential gardens surrounding homes in your Philadelphia community. Every now and then you may see a sign that says “Best Garden in the County” or “Top Flower Garden in Town”. One home in our community is regularly seen sporting the “Garden of the Month” sign and you can be sure that hands down, he deserves it. We slow down and drink in the whole garden when we drive by. Do you aspire to having one of those gorgeous gardens some day, a Trophy Garden?
Very few gardens come close to being what would be considered a trophy garden for one simple reason, they were designed, laid out, and planted years ago. While remaining attractive, the fact is they are older gardens. The garden has lost the shape, proportion and layering it once so beautifully displayed. What’s the solution? A garden restoration.
Does your property have an older garden, one that is ready for garden restoration? Many landscaped gardens around homes as young as 8 years old have reached a point where they are no longer the beautiful gardens they once surrounding homes in Philadelphia’s Main Line, Southern New Jersey and Northern Delaware communities. Larger plants have outgrown the area in which they were originally placed, dwarfing adjacent plants, walkways and even the home. The overall form and proportions in the garden have disappeared. There comes a time when the garden needs to be evaluated, and older plants, flowers and trees should be removed or transplanted; and new plants added.
A professional landscape designer will create a well-planned landscape design that anticipates growth patterns; using indigenous plants carefully selected to maintain proportions, layering, seasonal color, and scaled to maintain shape over time. Aardweg Landscaping is just such a designer, with over 35 years of experience designing and installing affordable gardens in the greater Philadelphia area.
