Frequently asked questions

Can I get a complete evaluation of my property and a consultation?

Yes. Green Zone offers an evaluation and consultation service. These sessions with a Green Zone professional provides clients with a comprehensive analysis of their property as well as the opportunity to discuss any concerns about their landscape. Clients will receive a service proposal and suggestions for enhancing their landscape.

Do you create landscape designs?

Yes. Green Zone offers a complete custom design package based on the client’s wishes. Green Zone has full time designers on staff to work closely with our clients. Once the initial comprehensive evaluation and consultation service has been completed, a Green Zone designer will provide a scaled drawing of a landscape tailored to enhance the overall beauty of the specific property. The cost for designs depends on the size and scope of the project.

When can you start?

As soon as the client is satisfied with the job proposal, the client is asked to sign a contract and provide a down payment. Once the down payment and signed contract is received, the job is scheduled in the next available opening.

How much maintenance is required in my newly installed landscape?

Maintenance varies depending upon the plant material within the landscape. The client will play a role in determining the amount of maintenance they wish to have when selecting the type of landscape and plant material in a new landscape. The consultation with the designer will allow the client to express his or her maintenance concerns. Green Zone offers a full maintenance program, bi-weekly or monthly bed maintenance and shrub pruning that cater to the needs of clients.

How frequently will I have to water new plant material?

Watering requirements for newly installed plant material varies. A tree requires a different regimen than a perennial. Grass seed and sod differ from a perennial and so on. All plants, trees, shrubs and turf need water. Be prepared to spend a little time on this chore to protect your investment. Dedicated landscape bed irrigation is a good way to protect your investment in you new landscape.

Do I need an irrigation system in my perennial beds?

If you do not object to watering by hand, then no irrigation system is necessary. However, some landscapes should be watered with an irrigation system just to ensure the survival of the plant material. Sometimes, a homeowner’s schedule does not allow him/her to properly water the new landscape. Location of a bed is also a consideration. In these cases, dedicated bed watering is necessary for good plant health.

What is the difference between perennials and annuals?

Annuals add color and texture to landscape bed, patios, pots and outdoor living areas. Annual colors are typically more vibrant and intense than perennial colors making them a much sought after addition to the landscape. temperature.

Will I have to replant every year?

Most annuals need to be planted each year simply because of their lack of hardiness to our climate. You can expect about an 80 – 100 percent regeneration rate on perennials.

How big will the new perennials, trees and shrubs get?

Each individual product’s growth is different. The designer will address specific questions regarding size and needs during the design consultation.

Do I need to fertilize shrubs and trees?

Yes. Trees and shrubs develop better when they are getting the nutrients they need. Green Zone offers a four step plant health care program for trees and shrubs. The program includes a fall and a spring deep root fertilization program and two mid-year disease and insect applications. We also offer rust prevention sprays for ornamental crab trees, insect and disease control for evergreens, and a host of other stand alone plant health care services. Green Zone can customize a plant health care program to supply the fertilizers and nutrients your plants need.

Do I need to prune shrubs and trees?

Pruning allows trees to grow more evenly, without dangerous low branches or crossing branches that may damage the overall health of the tree.
Shrubs need to be pruned on a regular basis to keep them from overgrowing. Pruned shrubs will grow more vigorously because the damaged parts are always being removed, allowing more sunlight to reach to inner part of the plant. Pruning will also reduce the risk of disease by removing dead material. Green Zone offers bed maintenance and pruning programs for every landscape.

When choosing a landscape cover, what is the difference between rock and mulch?

Rock and mulch are a matter of preference. Mulch is less inexpensive to place initially, but it requires replenishing every one to two years. Mulch also offers benefits to the soil and overall health of the plants while rock does not. Rock is initially more expensive because of the actual cost of the rock and the labor for installation.
