The patio is where you entertain, relax and enjoy a good meal or book. Patios are different things to different people. With outdoor heating, it is possible to enjoy our patio year round in Orleans. Even if you happen to be a minimalist with contemporary tastes, you have to admit that a bit of landscaping makes all the difference. At Belle Terre Landscape, we create landscaping for patios and poolside that will knock your socks off. Clients rave about our professionalism, attention to detail and ability to get it right the first time. For over 15 years, we have been pursuing our passion – and it shows.
Site Survey & Environmental Impact
During the initial consultation, we speak with you to get a grasp of what you want to accomplish. By the time we walk away, we should understand your needs, style, taste level and budgetary requirements. The landscape architect will conduct a site survey. She will inspect the property for any potential challenges. As certified tree huggers, we are trained to assess the environmental impact. Installing plants that are not indigenous to the area can have a significant impact on the local eco-system. We take the time to review all factors when designing your landscape.
Flowers & Color Scheme
Flowering perennials are a great way to bring color to any landscape project. Colorful pots in varying hues is another stylistic option. Astilbe produces purple blossoms that brighten up any garden space. Cushion spurge flourishes into orange and yellow flowers during spring and summer. The vegetation selected will depend on your preferred color scheme. Clients with traditional homes tend to opt for more colorful plants. Those with modern states typically prefer ornamental grasses and stonecrop. We are mindful of invasive plants that wreak havoc when planted in Ottawa. It would be our pleasure to work with your interior designer to install plants that are congruent with your color scheme.
Low Maintenance Vegetation
When we say low maintenance, we mean it in every sense of the word. Succulents and cacti are a good example of low maintenance plants. They are disease resistant and don’t require pesticides or much fertilizer. All succulents and cacti have pet resistant properties. Pets despise the taste of succulents. You won’t have to concern yourself with exorbitant water bills because these plants require very little water. When planning your patio’s landscape, plants that entail very little care are at the top of the list for busy clients. If you enjoy gardening, it would be our pleasure to present different options to you.
Planting for Privacy
Fences can provide a great deal of privacy. They work well, but they are not the only option. For increased privacy from your neighbors, you can add plants that work in your favor. You may want to sip your tea while wearing little to nothing or dance to the beat of your own drum, like no one is watching. Tall hedges and trees allow you to do that. Climbing plants that cascade down a pergola offer privacy from nosey onlookers. There are a myriad of options to choose from if seclusion is your goal.
