Here’s How Borders Benefit your Landscape

Your landscaping at your home is an investment, and to ensure that investment is protected, it is important that you create a border for your landscape. Not only are landscape borders functional (they keep invasive grass out of your beds and keep your landscape plants in,) but they also look great and, if done correctly, complement your landscape.

When it comes to landscape borders, there are many choices (drop-edge, steel edge, composite, and stone). In today’s video Ken Hyatt, our Founder and President, show you all you need to know about the various types and details of our preferred style (and how we install them in our projects.)

Learn Why Soil Prep is Key for Landscape Plants to Thrive

In a recent landscape project, we shared that our customer asked us if we used a special fertilizer because his plants were growing so fast. Village Green does use fertilizer, but the real secret to our success is that we take the time to prepare the soil properly before installation. Many landscape companies skip this vital part of the process to cut costs and offer a lower price.

Today we wanted to dig deeper into the importance of soil prep. It’s no secret that the soil in North Texas is not plant friendly. In today’s video Hannah, our Landscape Manager, talks about how Village Green handles soil preparation and why it is critical for the success of a new landscape.

Landscape Spotlight: Michelle & Craig’s Family Friendly North Plano Project

Michelle and Craig contacted us to help reimagine their large, open North Plano backyard. The couple had a good idea of what they wanted in their project. It was essential to keep as much of their large lawn as possible so their six and nine-year-old children could enjoy the space (or a pool could be installed in the future.) They also wanted to create an area in their landscape for a vegetable garden and space for Craig’s mower and tools. They also wanted to soften their fence line, create some privacy from the neighbors, and upgrade their outdoor patio space.

As you can see in the before and after photos, the design will help cover their expansive fence with plants that will mature and screen the neighbor’s homes, creating a sense of privacy in the backyard. To soften the extensive fence, we used a combination of savannah holly, needlepoint hollies, and abelias.

[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

Michelle and Craig also wanted more outdoor living space, so we expanded the patio area with a new stamped concrete area that looks beautiful. Surrounding it, we used compact nandinas, lambs’ ear, irises, and dwarf Mexican petunias to complement and frame the patio.

I want to thank Michelle and Craig for trusting us with their project and for taking the time to send me the following note about our team.

“I’m certain you know this already, but I believe you have some great employees in Hannah, Juan, and Manny. They’re very friendly, welcoming of any questions or concerns, and were very professional throughout the entire 3-week job. I’m not sure one could ask for better ambassadors or representatives of your business.”  Michelle and Craig

Important Tips on Transplanting Plants

In today’s video, Ken shared a couple of tips that are helpful to note when transplanting plants.

When you dig the plant up, if the soil drops off the root ball and the roots are exposed, the plant will likely not survive. If we have a good and large enough root ball, the plant typically will be fine.

The second important thing when transplanting a plant is making sure you give the plant enough water. It is nearly impossible to overwater a transplanted plant, and it is vital to water the plant by hand to make sure it is getting enough water.

Keep in mind that it is common for the leaves to drop off the transplanted plant. As long as you can see some new leaf growth, the plant should be fine.
