Many landowners often do not know how to deal with landscaping, so they make many mistakes when shaping the future terrain of the garden. These may be of a quite different nature, whether they translate into a non-functional lawn at best, or into soil erosion in case of worse.
If you are self-employed in these adjustments, you should remember some recommendations that can help you in many ways.
Although it does not seem so often, the landscaping can really make the whole garden simpler or completely destroy it. It is not always a good idea to go into the terrain by self-help, especially if you do not have much experience with this direction or you are solving rather thorny problems.
So when is it better to call a professional company?
Especially if you have to deal with static, if there are too steep slopes in the garden or if landslides could endanger the lower plots. An experienced construction or gardening company can help with this issue and can provide references. In any case, the underestimation of landscaping does not usually pay.
Frequent malady of construction companies
So if you are not solving really big complications, which could immediately threaten the surrounding parcels by possible landslides, it is possible to model the terrain self-help, but it is still good to consult with experts. Wrinkles on the forehead can also be prepared by incorrect stratification of different soil qualities. In practice, it is often the case that a construction company will transport a good topsoil, which is deposited in the upper layer, to a deposit site when building a house.
At the same time, however, there is also a modification of the subsoil layer, which is usually quite poor because it contains a high proportion of clay and stone and contains a minimum or even no organic matter. When finishing construction work, these layers are swapped, which means that topsoil is placed in the bottom layer while the barren subsoil comes on top. Then what to do with it?
A subsistence garden brings new possibilities
The problem is that the subsoil is of such poor quality that it mostly does not allow the quality of most of the vegetation elements, whether it be lawn or shrub or flower planting. It retains water, dries for a long time, and due to the absence of natural soil components that otherwise allow plant growth and development, it is often better to remove the subsoil to a depth of at least forty centimeters and replace it with topsoil. This process, however, costs more money, so it is worth considering whether it is best to spend more time overseeing the stratification of the original layers of soil.
