Residential Softscape Services in San Diego, California
The term ‘softscape’ refers to the parts of your landscape that are living things – your lawn, scrubs, trees, flowerbeds, etc.
Softscaping is necessary for keeping your yard looking good, and it provides additional benefits as well, including:
Getting More Satisfaction Out of Your Greatest Investment of All
Buying a house will be, most likely, the biggest investment you ever make. Why not make the most of it?
The cost of softscaping services is a small price to pay for improving what the world looks like just outside your window. You’ll feel better knowing you have a sharper-looking property than you had before.
Softscaping Can Improve Property Values
In terms of improving an investment, softscaping not only makes you feel better about your property – it makes that property worth more, too (according to Bob Vila, good landscaping can increase home value by as much as 20%).
And if you ever decide to resell your home, softscaping will make it easier to find a buyer. “As a real estate agent, I have found that most homebuyers are more excited about touring a home that looks inviting on the outside than one that is sad and dreary, unless they were focused on buying a fixer-upper,” writes Jill Chodorov in a piece for The Washington Post.
More Water Means More Opportunities for Your Landscape
Perhaps our most valuable softscaping service is the installation of water-efficient irrigation systems.
The City of San Diego Mandatory Water Use Restrictions limits homeowners to watering their yards just 2 times a week, 5 minutes per session. Only being allowed 10 minutes of watering a week reduces the amount of flora that will do well in your yard.
There is an exception to these restrictions, though – if you’re using water-efficient devices such as a micro-irrigation system, you can use as much water as you want. We can install such a system for you. That way, plants of all kinds will be able to thrive on your property.
