Video Transcript

We all know how important a first impression can be. Seasonal landscape maintenance is critical to nurture and protect your landscape investment so your property can always look it’s best.

From controlling stormwater runoff and erosion to applying the proper fertilizers and pest control products, East Coast Landscape Design is your trusted source for timely, meticulous seasonal landscape maintenance. With extensive experience in landscape and hardscape design and installation, we understand landscaping from the ground up, and can help you keep your gardens lush, your plants healthy, and your hardscape surfaces from deteriorating over time.

Uncontrolled weeds, fungi, and invasive plant species encroach on the beauty of your landscape and rob soil of nutrients, water, and sunlight your plants need to stay healthy. Without regular landscape maintenance, these landscape marauders will take over. Regular turf maintenance is essential to removing unwanted weed growth and supporting the health and longevity of your beautiful lawn.

We prune and trim trees and shrubs to remove damaged limbs to protect your property and encourage optimum health. Along with regular applications of mulch and fertilizer to keep soil balanced and plants thriving, we also provide management of pest and infestation problems, with natural methods of treatment when possible, to avoid disease or damage to your beautiful landscape.

Maryland Landscaping: Using Trees & Shrubs

Video Transcript

We all have spots in our yards that could use a bit more landscaping attention, and trees and shrubs just may be part of your solution. When you take a look at yard, imagine what a little facelift might do to bump your curb appeal, and how trees and shrubs can provide much more than pretty leaves and flowers.

Trees provide shade, helping your home to conserve energy. Shrubs and trees provide natural habitat for native species. They can buffer your home from punishing prevailing winds, the rush of traffic on a nearby road, or the prying eyes of the nosy neighbors. Trees and shrubs create natural hedges to mark your property line, separating it from adjacent yards, and eliminating the need for more expensive, high-maintenance barriers or fences. Carefully selected and positioned, trees and shrubs can define the way you use and enjoy your land for generations to come.

Choose attractive, reliable, trouble-free plants with soil and environmental needs suited to your site and resources. Soil testing and analysis is vital to determine your planting readiness. Soil amendments and fertilizers can be added during planting as instructed.

Why plant trees and shrubs? Lots of reasons. Shrubs and trees can screen out unpleasant vistas, create balanced transitions between larger landscape components, construct a ground cover to minimize high-care lawn areas, and define pedestrian and other functional areas. Trees and shrubs

fill your yard with life, and can yield fruit, nuts, flowers, and aromas to enjoy and delight. Finally, trees and shrubs give us infinite interest as our yards change from season to season, delivering natural fascination year after year. Colorful flowers, fall leaves, attractive bark, beautiful butterflies, juicy apples, and endless years of comforting companionship - trees and shrubs offer us an infinitely rich view of our world right outside our windows.

When you are ready to give your property a refreshing facelift call the tree and shrub specialists at East Coast Landscape Design. Serving satisfied clients with trees, shrubs, and a full range of landscaping and hardscaping design, installation, and care services for over thirty five years.

They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
