The Benefits of Localizing Your Landscape

When it comes to your landscaping, sometimes the simplest solutions are the best ones. At Asphalt Solutions, we employ a method of localizing your landscaping to ensure that your landscaping works best for you. Every climate is different, and you want to make sure that your landscaping decisions are able to be optimized for your specific climate.

Save water

One of the biggest benefits of having a localized landscape, is that you will save a lot of water! This is not only great on your wallet, but also on the environment. Most homes come with a large lawn, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best option for your yard. Often, it just sucks up a lot of water, takes up a lot of space, and doesn’t leave a lot of room for customization. One of the first steps of localizing your landscape, is to cut back your lawn to help you maintain it. This smaller shape allows you to add other elements to your yard that you normally wouldn’t have the room to do.

Increased value

Did you know that a localized landscape can add value to your home? With less lawn space, you’re able to utilize elements such as a patio, fire pit, play area, water features, flower beds, and more. These all add value to your home, while simultaneously increasing your curb appeal.

Transform your side yard

The side yard is often the most neglected part of your landscape. Is yours overgrown by weeds? No one uses it, so why would you work hard to maintain it? When you localize your landscape, you’re given an opportunity to utilize that extra space in your side yard! Dig up all of those weeds and replace them with a simple walkway. This adds both beauty and functionality to your home.

Design over default

As we mentioned earlier, the default for most homes is to install a spacious lawn and leave it at that. And a lawn isn’t much to look at. During localization, we are able to trim back your lawn into a design that is not only beautiful, but gives you creative ability to improve the rest of your landscape. Things like planter beds and flowers will completely transform the look of your landscape, while taking up less water than the lawn would.
