At Orchard’s we source our plants from the finest nurseries and create living landscapes with vibrant color and texture to accentuate your property and bring your outdoor living spaces to life. We will work closely with you to highlight the natural features of your property and then add trees, shrubs and flowers that burst with color, provide shade in the summer, and celebrate the seasons. Our goal is to turn your yard into a functional canvas that accentuates your home and enhances your lifestyle.
Living Landscapes to Enhance Your Lifestyle
Nothing anchors a property like mature trees while also providing many functional benefits. We strategically plant trees to provide shade to keep homes cool and patios usable in the summer, to conserve water for irrigation, and create privacy from your neighbors. We also try to mix deciduous varieties with vibrant displays in spring and fall against redwoods and other evergreens to maintain privacy and beauty.
Examples: Redwoods, Crape Myrtles, Sycamores, Fruitless Pear, Cherry and Plum, Birch, Magnolias, Dogwoods, Japanese Maples
Shrubs are excellent for adding color, depth and texture to a yard or living space. We often start with large evergreens to efficiently fill space and create backdrops for color and then layer in deciduous varieties that blossom from spring through fall. Shrubs are also great for planting beds around a home or accentuating an outdoor living space.
Examples: Camellias, Hydrangeas, ……
These unfussy, long-lived plants pump out beautiful foliage year after year and introduce bursts of color and interest for any season of the year. These plants have deep root systems that are more drought resistant, can help prevent soil erosion and are easier to maintain.
Examples: Roses, Irises, Tulips, Alstromeria, Lavender, Echinacea, Daisies, Sage, Salvia
These plants have a full life cycle that only last one year but nothing dresses up an entry, patio or outdoor living space better. Annuals are often planted in the spring, summer and fall and add vibrant color and beautiful blooms that are necessary to complete your landscape.
Example: Begonias, Impatients, Petunias, Pansies, Marigolds, etc.
