Landscaping can add so much beauty and value to a home or business when done correctly. Landscaping in San Antonio has its own set of challenges, and it’s important to arm yourself with the knowledge of the local types of plants that do best and thrive in this region. I feel like this particular blog is especially relevant to San Antonio because we have so many people in the area that are transplants from many places around the United States. One of the biggest challenges that most people encounter when trying to create a landscape that is not only functional but beautiful is finding plants and trees that complement our surroundings but yet thrive in an area that typically gets very little rain throughout the year. What are the best places to find out which plants will thrive is to start off by going to a big box store like home depot to see the types of plants entries that they offer. Typically I’m not a huge fan of going to big box stores but some of these larger stores do a good job of only selling the types of vegetation that thrive in an area regionally. Although you might want to start here this might not be the place where you ultimately decide on purchasing your plants or vegetation for your home or business. This is a great starting point to start collecting ideas that you can then discuss with your landscaping designer when creating the perfect surroundings for your home or business..
What’s you’ve made the plans for what plants and trees you want to incorporate in your design, it’s important to consider the sustainability of those plants by considering things like hydration and proper watering. One of the ways that we suggest for you to accomplish this goal is by considering putting in an irrigation system for self-watering. We’ve been offering these types of sprinkler systems for years and have been installing them throughout the San Antonio area for customers homes and businesses. This is the best way to ensure that the investment you’ve made into beautifying your home or business is well maintained.
Once you have gone to the big box store or even a small landscaping business and have chosen the types of vegetation you would like it’s also a great idea to look at the different irrigation and watering systems that can be installed. It’s usually a big investment when you’re putting in landscaping making sure that it thrives is really important to the overall health of your beautification investment that you’re making.
An irrigation system can be installed with relative ease especially if your home or business is a new construction. Even if it’s not a new construction the slight delay and somewhat unsightly condition of the lawn by tearing out portions of it to lay down piping can be easily remedied through consistent nurturing and watering.

Landscaping projects for your home offer many opportunities to not only improve your home aesthetically, but functionally as well. I have been in the landscaping business now for 20 years and have had the opportunity to meet with many homeowners that are trying to decide on a scope of work specifically for their home projects, during these meetings with homeowners I have found many people that have had unique ideas that have challenged my perspectives on the opportunities that exist if you have the imagination.
It is well known in the landscaping industry that by creating an outdoor space you create curb appeal to your home. Often during these first time meetings the clients tell me they are trying to create this curb appeal for their home but have often questioned how much money they should put in to a landscaping project to attain the curb appeal that they’re looking for. I often respond back by asking them what is their purpose for the landscaping project that their currently considering. Curb appeal is important aesthetically to new home buyers.
I work for a number of real estate agents that coach homeowners that are trying to sell their homes on low cost ways to create outdoor appeal that makes it easy for potential homeowners to want to come into the home and do a tour. Real estate agents as well as new and previous homeowners buyers often have excellent ideas when it comes to landscaping. One of the ways that I encourage new clients to think through this process is by considering landscaping ideas that are not only aesthetically pleasing and beautiful but also functional. As you know anytime you add a feature to something you also potentially could be adding complications.
Knowing the types of plants that grow well in your area of the country is a very important thing to know prior to considering the type of external landscaping that you might be doing with plants. Finding the right plants shrubs and aesthetically pleasing flowers is not only important for the beauty but important for the long-term care and maintenance of your property. There have been many horror stories of people choosing plants that don’t get enough sunlight and placing them in places that will inevitably lead to the plant not being able to thrive. Finding plants that require less water if you live in a place where water is a premium is also one thing to keep into consideration.
Ultimately incorporating ideas from my potential clients and customers throughout the years as well as adding tried and true techniques has offered a lot of advantage to those people that we work with.
