Is Your Landscaping in Major Need of a Refresh? Here Are 5 Ideas in the Novi and Canton, MI, Areas

Whether you are seeking landscapers to freshen up your lawn or a landscape contractor to design and build a functional outdoor living space, there's plenty to consider in a new landscaping project. For landscapes in major need of a refresh in the Novi and Canton, MI, areas, here are five ideas to consider.

Lawn Fertilization

Routine lawn mowing may keep your lawn tidy and neat, but that doesn’t mean it’s healthy and set up to thrive. Proper fertilization treatments would add essential nutrients such as nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus to the soil.

This is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor: Your landscapers would need to evaluate your lawn, determine its deficiencies and how to best treat it, and develop a lawn care plan for specific grass types and soil quality. Additionally, sprucing up your lawn could include weed control and general cleanup as part of your lawn maintenance to preserve its lush and inviting appearance.

Tree & Shrub Trimming

Trees and shrubs can add a beautiful appearance to your lawn and outdoor spaces, so it could be essential to ensure they are trimmed and healthy-looking. Professional landscapers may suggest enhancing your lawn or backyard by removing any overgrown or harmful tree branches. Trees and shrubs could look their best and grow uniformly with regularly scheduled trimming services.

New tree and shrubs planting may also be a refreshing addition. If you are considering fresh greenery as part of your landscape plan, this may aid in beautifying your home’s outdoor space.


To add color and texture to your landscaping, consider the fresh introduction of new plantings. These plantings can be chosen dependent on flower bloom times and maturity size, to give you a wide variety of options as the months progress. Whether by building new plant beds or adding groundcovers, plant options can vary from shrubs, perennials, flowers, and lush or vibrant outdoor plants. Among these plants could sit a striking water feature, to provide the soothing sounds of running water and a way to invite tranquility to your home.

Paver Walkway & Patio

If your current landscape lacks structure, an outdoor living space could be developed, starting with a paver patio that leads by walkway to your fine garden area or your front yard. Built of pavers, these landscape features could make your outdoor spaces more navigable and welcoming.

A paver patio could redefine an area for outdoor living and enhance the appearance of your backyard. Whether you're looking to entertain guests under a pergola or a place to relax after the workday, the patio can be made to meet your exact style preferences.

Custom Decking

If you're seeking outdoor enjoyment, consider having a custom-built deck for your property. Elevated above your patio, this deck could expand the amount of space you have for outdoor entertaining or dining. On the other hand, a ground-level deck could also enhance your backyard or best suit your pool area.

Not sure how you want to change up your landscape but know that you want a refresh? Your landscape contractor will be full of ideas and can walk you through them to create a better, more functional landscape in the new year.
