Frequently Asked Questions

Is landscaping a good workout?

Low level of exercise – While it's no ultramarathon, gardening and landscaping do require a moderate amount of exercise. Digging, raking, kneeling, and lifting equipment repetitively for hours at a time increase blood flow and heart rate while also working the muscles and increasing range of motion.

Can you get fit doing yard work?

All that lifting and bending and stooping and standing up again—it really gets your heart rate up. Yardwork is a great way to get some cardiovascular exercise, increasing the oxygen flow to the heart while reducing blood pressure. Just make sure to keep a water bottle handy to stay hydrated.

Why are shape and form important in landscape design?

The shapes of flowerbeds, ponds and facets of architecture work together to complement and enhance one another while contributing to a visually interesting landscape design. This creates a basis on which three-dimensional forms can be arranged in bringing the entire design together.

Is it bad to put a lawn in a rectangular garden?

The lawn is the carpet of the garden and the worst thing you can do, is to put a wiggly edged lawn into a rectangular shaped garden. Creating wiggles and squiggles won't make your garden look natural. Nature makes it natural! As soon as you add planting to a straight edged border the plants grow and spill over and soften all the hard lines.
