With the shorter days and time change in effect, it is the perfect time to add landscape lighting to your home!

We use low voltage LED lighting, which saves you money on your electric bill, but still provides that warm glow of a halogen bulb! Interested in learning more?

Now that the hot summer temperatures are winding down, it is the perfect time to redesign your landscape! When you plant in the end of summer or fall you don’t have to worry about watering as much! Cooler temperatures and less exposure to sunlight helps the plants retain moisture better! Some people worry that planting at the end of season puts the plants at risk during the winter, but as long as the plants have an established root system before the first frost, they will make it through the winter without a problem! Give us a call today for a free consultation, and see what new ideas we have for you!
Do you have a drainage issue along your property line? Grading your property and installing drains with underground piping can often solve the issue, but sometimes the surrounding ground can remain constantly damp and muddy even with these measures in place. In drainage situations this severe, we recommend installing a dry creek bed. With dry creek beds, the runoff water is directed away from your property and the surrounding ground is covered in stone preventing muddy areas from forming. Dry creek beds can easily be incorporated with your existing or future flower beds and landscaping. Want to find out if this might be the solution for you? Give us a call and we’ll schedule you a free consultation!
When a hardscape design is put together, a lot of times the surrounding softscape is an afterthought to the landscape designer/architect. At Montano’s Landscaping, we understand the importance of putting detail into both the hardscape and softscape aspects of the landscape design. Our partner, Carlos Montano, personally designs each one of our landscape designs himself. Not only is he certified in CAD and 3D hardscape design, but he also has a degree in Horticulture, which gives him the knowledge base and skill set needed to create unique hardscape designs surrounding by a beautiful and well-planned landscape. Call us today to schedule your free consultation and see what we can create for you!
