Landscaping is a familiar term that combines gardening with art and design. If you have a display at your office or business, you may wonder how it looks fabulous all year round. There is more to managing a landscape than meets the eye. From balancing the delicate needs of each plant, to designing eye-catching landscapes, at John Mini we handle it all.
The concept of landscape management is seemingly simple – preserve the health and beauty of the plants around us. Like most living things, plants need constant care and attention to thrive. Each landscape, and plant within, is unique and dynamic. As a result, landscape management is intricate and involved, requiring professional expertise and ongoing maintenance
When it comes to outdoor landscape management there are many factors that come into play. Different spaces have their specific needs and these needs vary based on the time of year. Weather conditions and temperature, for example, are regular variables. These seasonal factors call for a seasonal approach. In the spring, it is all about clean up and cutting back to ensure vigorous re-growth as well as irrigation setup and testing. The warmer months in spring and summer require the professionals to be on their toes, ready to mobilize for extreme temperate swings and executing anticipated fertilizations, pruning, pest and disease treatment, weed removal, and irrigation adjustments. When colder months arrive in fall and winter, the focus shifts to thorough foliage cleanup, cutting back of perennial plants for preservation, and the deactivation of irrigation systems. There is something to be done all year round!
Indoor landscapes present unique challenges that require routine care and maintenance. Indoor plants maintenance includes assessment of overall plant health, pest and disease control, regular irrigation, pruning, and the dusting and washing of foliage. Indoor flowers need to be refreshed periodically, to preserve their delicate and expected beauty. Soil or medium testing is also crucial to ensure that essential nutrients and minerals are present. Our indoor maintenance service includes a guarantee. Should there be an issue with a plants health or appearance, we swiftly refresh that plant with a new one!
While taking care of plants may seem like simply watering once in a while, there is a science to it. It is essential to understand how each plant’s requirements, not only on its own, but also how those requirements may vary in different locations and environments. Your indoor landscape of desert plants is certain to have different requirements than your courtyard tulip bed. Balancing your vision and the best horticulture practices is what John Mini does best.
