your property can add value to your home. On a personal note, it can
help give your home a peaceful feel from the hectic world. Recently I've
become interested in adding wisteria to our landscape. When considering
a plant for my landscape I like to research the effect and benefits the
plant can add to our property.
If you have an arbor, pergola, covered deck or any
other structure a vine plant can climb; you may want to consider a vine
plant. They can add shade, privacy and are easy to grow. The are
aesthetically pleasing as well and can add beauty and fragrance to your
If considering vine plants you need to understand they
do require maintenance. You need to make sure they do not creep into
crevices, as they can cause wood rot. Trimming the vines will help
control them from creeping into places they are not wanted and will
prevent them from becoming too heavy for a structure and causing the
structure to shift. You will need regular maintenance to prevent
unwanted pests from making their home in the vines as well.
When choosing a plant to add to the landscape consider
researching the plant. If you have animals and small children always
check to see if a plant is toxic/poisonous. If you are wanting a plant
to attract butterflies or humming birds you might also make sure it
doesn't attract unwanted pests. If you have an existing structure that
is damaged from plants or weather and need an estimate on a repair give CH Construction a call for a free estimate.
