PLLandscape

Here are a few shots of some of the work from 2013.

First is a full new build front landscape installation.

Here is a little renovation/change of a landscape we have managed for about 5 years. Just removed some of the junipers that were getting a little overgrown, replaced with boxwoods, transplanted a few plants, and of course the edging and mulching.

Just some misc edge, trim, mulch jobs, and some clean up around a pool filter.

These are old but shows how serious I take edging! Spring cleanup/landscape maintenance just before mulching.

Your work looks fabulous! I have a quick question though. What kind of tree is planted in the first set of pictures, next to the house? How big will it get?

You wouldn't believe how many jobs I have got called to where trees were planted too close to the house and then the roots get into the foundation or the tree grows into the house and looks bad.

I'm not a tree guy and know very little about trees so I don't know what kind of tree you planted. It just peaked my interest when I seen that picture.

Thanks! The "tree" is a topiary nishiki willow. Basically they took a nishiki willow shrub and grafted it onto a trunk of sorts. The top part can get much larger but the rest will not. This was chosen by the homeowner and we confirmed with the nursery this would not be invasive to the home. more of a bush than a tree.

Yes I have also seen a Crimson Maple used as an "accent tree" that's planted right on the corner of the house. That's a 30-40' tall mature tree with a similar spread! Just plainly some landscaper with limited plant knowledge (tree vs shrub!) or homeowner who sees a purple leaf tree that costs less than a Japanese maple. I'm in no way perfect in plant knowledge but I'll make the effort to figure things out.

Did you dig out an edge for the mulch? I usually go 4-5 inches down, and use a turned over weed whacker to clip off the overlapping grass.
