Good landscaping design can really enhance the look and feel of your property. For example, the Lindberg family hired a landscape company to design the landscaping for their home, and got a custom-designed, globally-inspired project that features 480 boulders and gabion walls made of steel boxes full of rocks. Many landscaping projects aren’t nearly as complex, though — you can pay a very reasonable sum to have trees or shrubs planted, or to create mulched areas. Drainage is also an important issue to consider.
- Mike Saline created for the Lindbergs an elaborate landscaping project featuring hundreds of boulders and gabion walls.
- For a reasonable price you can pay a landscaper to deposit mulch beds or plant trees or shrubs or rent equipment and try DIY.
- Drainage is also a big concern in a place like Duluth, and you always want to make sure there’s a positive slope away from the foundation.
