Good landscaping can transform the look (and price) of a home, which makes it an important, though sometimes overlooked, facet of homeownership. I’m here today with my most trusted landscaper, Eric Chamberlain—the only person I recommend for landscaping. Eric went into landscape design around 35 years ago, and since then has traveled to 45 countries to study techniques such as Oriental and European garden design. With all the knowledge he’s gathered from throughout the world, he’s created a business in Syracuse that truly stands out.It’s important to calculate what a plant is going to do over time so it doesn’t become a nuisance.
As such an accomplished landscaper, Eric can point out the biggest mistakes he sees homeowners make: 1. Overplanting: Overplanting can cause problems down the road. It happens by, essentially, putting the wrong plants in the wrong places. It’s important to calculate how (and where) a plant will grow over time so it doesn’t become a nuisance. 2. Drainage: Without adequate drainage systems, water can run into the house or create puddles throughout the landscape. Professionals like Eric can put plants in the right places, grade the earth correctly, and ensure that water moves away from the house. 3. Pruning: You need to prune at the right time of year to maintain your plants’ health. Pruning at the wrong time can cause a plant to lose its colors and flowers. Certain plants need to be pruned at certain times, so it’s important to be familiar with your flora. Eric can do a whole review of your landscape, determine what you need, and execute a plan to make your backyard flourish. Give him a call at (315) 569-1214 and have your home treated by a seasoned professional. If you need any help with buying or selling a home, have any questions, or need some information, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
