What plants work well in our area in Georgia?
Thanks to Atlanta’s mild climate and seasonal changes, a variety of plants work well throughout the state and in the north Georgia area. Bearded Iris, Daylily, Garden phlox, Goldenrod, Begonia, Calla lily, and Snakeroot are just some of the options Georgia gardeners have to consider.
Etowah Landscape Group can help you determine which plants will work best in your area – for example, if your outdoor area receives a lot of sun, begonias (which love shady areas) might not be the best option for you. Following our initial consultation and throughout the design process, these issues will all be considered as Etowah Landscape Group makes recommendations on how to enhance your property.
What is the typical climate in Georgia?
The entire state of Georgia enjoys a mild to moderate climate that enjoys a reputation of seeing all the seasons. Temperatures vary widely across the state due to significant differences in topography. Summer temperatures typically average below 90 degrees while the lowest winter temperatures stay well above freezing.
The state receives 40 to 50 inches of rain per year, with north Georgia experiencing light snowfall in the winter months.
Why should I landscape?
Other than the obvious aesthetic benefits, a manicured yard can increase the value of your property by five to as much as 15 percent. In addition, the strong “curb appeal” created by a good landscape can help you sell your home faster.
Why is irrigation so important?
An automated irrigation system will protect your landscape investment and assure the proper management of your watering program. Etowah Landscape Group can choose the most effective irrigation system for your property and install it as the infrastructure needed to support your new landscape design. Drip and sprinkler irrigations are the most popular watering methods to conserve the use of water – which delivers water to the root area of planting drip-by-drip.
Drip irrigation is generally recommended by Etowah Landscape Group as a great way to conserve water and our environment, while protecting your investment in your landscape project.
