Sustainable and organic landscaping has been increasing in popularity as people have become more aware of our limited resources and how easy it can be to be green. Being conservative with the land we have been given is something everyone should be aware and willing to contribute to. In addition to being great for the environment, organic landscaping can also provide benefits for your wallet and for your health.
We believe that through our design, construction, operations, and maintenance practices we can meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to sustain their efforts.
One of the best methods of organic landscaping is making use of native plants. It is much easier to naturally promote the health of your landscape when the plants you use thrive in your area. Bringing in exotic plants or non-native plants from areas with very different conditions only results in frustration and the possible reliance on chemicals to help you take care of them. If you want to keep a landscape that works with the natural setting, native plants, or plants from areas with similar conditions, can help you accomplish this. Our staff can assist you in choosing plants native to the area that still accomplish the aesthetic goals you hope to see. Here are few more green options you can discuss further with your project manager.
Grading is a big undertaking. It is important to work with a landscaping company that possesses the knowledge and proper equipment to achieve the results you desire. Grading is an excellent solution for sloping yards that provide little area for patios, gardening and pools. With grading and terracing you can reclaim square footage, making it more accessible and usable. Southern Exposure has experience in design and installation of the following forms of grading: foundations and footings, slope terracing and stabilizing, aesthetic contouring, and directing surface runoff drainage of stormwater and domestic/irrigation runoff flows. Whether it’s new construction or 200 year old property, an entire apartment complex or a small water issue in your backyard, Southern Exposure can help.
Drainage Systems are crucial from preventing costly water issues. Southern Exposure can help you redirect water in a stylish and practical manner. The first step you should take when planning a drainage system is to identify low spots in the landscape. If obvious low spots exist on the property, the water must have a way to exit those areas. If you don't install a drainage system, a puddle probably will develop whenever it rains and could backup causing more serious problems, such as erosion, flooding or redirecting in undesired areas. Below are a few types of drainage options. We use 100% recycled drainage products every opportunity we can.
A beautiful lawn does not happen on it’s own. It’s a living organism that requires regular care and the proper conditions to thrive. The first step to a beautiful lawn is establishing an expanse of grass. If you do not have an established lawn or would like to start with a clean slate, two options exist for achieving a healthy, green lawn: sodding or seeding. There are benefits to both methods, although most pros weigh heavily in favor of sod. Southern Exposure can review the option that would work best for your yard and budget. Here are a some facts about both sodding and seeding.
Sodding: Installing a cultivated turf that is cut, rolled transferred.
Seeding: Spreading seed over freshly tilled or aerated soil or new soil and spreading fertilizer. (Southern Exposure uses NC State’s highest rated seed for our region annually and only seed guaranteed to be free of weed seed).
Installation is recommended in the fall. Spring is also ideal. Not recommended in summer or winter.
Water features are wonderful addition to any size yard. They are environmentally friendly and can be completely customized to install anywhere. Much like the element of fire, water is mesmerizing, relaxing and adds a unique focal point to a space. Southern Exposure landscaping company can help you in creating a water feature that fits your style and budget. We offer a variety of choices that range from one-step install Sugar Kettles to completely customized ponds and waterfalls.
Some standard features include:
Location and size are the two most important decisions you'll make about your water feature. As a general rule, a 180 square-foot or 11' x 16' pond is a good "standard" size water feature. To get a general idea of size, trace your prospective pond out on the ground with a garden hose. Our 3D design services can also help you visualize what the finished size and overall look will be.
Something Unique: Atlantic’s Colorfall Lighted Falls. A small product with huge visual impact. A perfect fit for formal retaining walls and pond-free applications, Colorfalls adds a breathtaking new dimension to a water feature - waterfalls with shimmering details in white, red or blue hues. If you don’t have room for a large water feature or don’t want the maintenance of a pond, a Colorfall is an excellent solution. You’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of your water feature day or night with minimal care and space.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have a truly sustainable lawn? With no more need for mowing, watering, fertilizing, aeration or seeding ever again, synthetic lawns become a great investment option and you'll enjoy the cost savings as well as the extra time saved. The synthetic grass Southern Exposure installs is friendly, not only to the environment, but for pets and children as well. Whether your playing ball with your kids, practicing your putting, or just walking barefoot, you'll enjoy the no-maintenance of a quality synthetic turf.
A synthetic lawn is the "GREEN" choice. You’ll save water, use less chemicals, and help the environment by conserving our resources. Landscape plantings and turf irrigation represents over 60% of all water consumption in the southeast. A waterless lawn is the solution in combination with an Earth Friendly mindset.
Ask our project managers about these specialty choices:
Imagine putting in your own backyard! Artificial putting greens are the ultimate backyard features and unlike most artificial surfaces, our greens will actually hold a shot, just like a natural grass green! When chipping onto the green, the ball will actually check up. With backspin, you can even make a ball stop or back up, and most impressive is the way a ball rolls on it. The ball will roll true and at an even pace, at fast or slow speeds. Because of its low maintenance and realistic performance, the system is actually preferred for use in putting greens at some commercial golf courses instead of natural grass!
Having a synthetic putting green is the perfect solution for any golfer who doesn’t have much time. In the convenience of your own backyard you can practice your short game whenever you want, plus have a lot of fun with friends and family.
The greatest thing about our greens is you won’t have to spend all your time mowing, watering, and fertilizing, and you won’t have to sacrifice performance to have a low maintenance putting green at your home. Come by our shop and try out our putting greens. We even have spare clubs in the office.
