Commercial Seasonal Color Program
There are a lot commercial properties that have yards; some have gardens. A yard is the area that surrounds your property. A garden, on the other hand, is a creation that enhances that space with sights, fragrances, and sounds that inspire and fulfill. The yard around your property is what you begin with; a garden is what it can become. Whether your garden is a woodland teeming with towering trees and flowering shrubs, a deep border of colorful perennials, a vegetable patch that stocks your table, or a simple windowbox overflowing with annuals, it should be fun, attractive, and a warm welcome to visitors and employees.
At Atlanta Lawn Care Services we’ll help you visualize your dream garden maximizing efficient practices, and nurturing a friendly, healthy environment, that is a thrill to watch grow over time.
Achieving a smart garden is a challenge beyond simply planting a few perennials and trees around a patch of grass. It requires you to consider the question: how do you develop a garden, making the most of your landscape, while at the same time merging seamlessly into the rhythms and flow of nature? Your answer is both the task and the reward of its creation. Compromises will be necessary, and you may not see instant dividends on your investment, but over time you will enjoy the compounded benefits of a lovely garden and a healthy, balanced environment. Ecause you planned for it, you investment will continue to grow over time.

Choosing the Best Plants – (Click on Logo)
One of the most important steps in establishing and maintaining a beautiful commercial garden is selecting the right plants. Matching the cultural requirements of plants with your specific commercial property can significantly increases the likelihood of successful cultivation and minimizes the maintenance effort. Preferences for water, light, soil type and acidity, tolerance of wind, humidity, salt spray, and air pollution, and resistance to diseases and pests are important factors in plant selection. Some conditions, such as soil pH, can be adjusted to accommodate the needs of desired plants. Others, such as salt spray near coastal regions or air pollution near industrial areas, are essentially fixed and limiting factors in the selection process.
Plants are grouped according to their lifespan. The major categories are annuals, biennials, perennials, and woody plants.
- Annual – An annual completes its life cycle in a single season. It grows from seed, develops vegetatively, bears flowers, produces seed for the next generation, and then dies, all in less than a year.
- Perennial – A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years, and a herbaceous perennial is a non-woody perennial that survives from one growing season to the next because its roots or underground storage organs (such as bulb, corm, or tuber) persist.
- Biennial – A biennial requires two growing seasons to complete its life cycle. Most biennials produce vegetative growth their first season; they flower, produce seed, and die their second season.
- Woody Plant – A woody plant is also a type of perennial, but it possesses a more permanent structure that persists above ground from season to season. Woody plants may be deciduous or evergreen. Examples include shrubs, trees, and some climbers and groundcovers.
