Years ago professional landscaping wasn’t as popular as it is today. Today, home and business owners alike want beautiful greenery planted neatly outside their home or office building. Modern landscapers attend college to learn to be horticulturists and arboriculturists that understand plants and trees. They learn which parts of the country certain trees will grow best. In this modern age, many people care deeply about the environment. This means they think before they flatten grounds or remove plants and trees from it, causing erosion, with nothing left but sand.
The Beauty and Safety of Trees and Plants
Long ago in 1934, the dust bowl of the United States came about because the same land was deeply farmed, and it wasn’t rotated properly. The nutrients were gone and there was nothing left but dust in the wind that eventually blew into the Atlantic Ocean. It took many years before it was understood what caused this dilemma. To rectify the situation, trees were planted which held moisture, and thankfully, the rains fell again.
Understanding What Happens When Land Isn’t Rested
Farmers finally understood what happened. Their land was worn out because it was over used. By that time, many people couldn’t take anymore, and just left the area. The people who did remain, and persevered, ended up seeing the beauty of healthy wheat plants again.
Science has taught people like the Earth Doctor Lafayette has available about making the best use of the ground under the feet of a town’s residents. Each state in the union has different soil. Large machines are used to move land from one place to another. Farm machines are used to plant soybeans where the corn once grew, which adds nutrients each crop needs to grow into nutritious, lush, green vegetables.
Some homes are built on flat land while others are built alongside hills and ponds. Experts will map out exactly how the landscaping around various homes can look once the job is completed. They can build brick retaining walls, man made ponds and creeks, trails around the grounds, and they can bring in lucky stones from river beds in the area. From huge rocks set strategically around a home’s driveway, to the smallest gravel with greenery set in between, each gives property its own unique look.
