Denver Lawn Care at 5280ft

Due to the high elevation in Denver, which is just over 5,000 feet, it can be difficult to enjoy beautiful lawns or gardens in this rugged climate. However, many residents of this large city in Colorado can not only enjoy the best of Denver lawn care, but can also enjoy eco-friendly solutions to knotty organic landscaping problems.

When a business or individual is dissatisfied with the current state of their lawn, garden or landscaping, consulting an expert in organic lawn care may be the best way to ensure finding hardy plants that will survive in this continental climate zone. In addition, when it comes to lawn care, Denver eco-friendly specialists can help with intelligent planning that makes the garden or landscape lovely to look at and can also provide self-maintaining ideas.

 

Organic or self-maintaining lawn care in Denver is actually much easier than many people realize, and in the long run, is often much less expensive to maintain. One of the best ways to minimize ecological impact in Denver lawn care is to use recycled materials for mulch, watering systems, ponds and stepping stones. In addition, there are literally hundreds of natural and harmless pest repellants that can replace the toxic insecticides that are traditionally used. A professional green landscaper in the Denver area can give customers options for the short-term installation of their landscaping, and can also provide long-term solutions for an ecologically and economically friendly lawn or garden.

 

One of the most important and overlooked areas of natural gardening a drip irrigation system. The drip irrigation system can conserve greatly on the amount of water needed for the plants, as it provides the water at the root where it is most needed and will not evaporate. An irrigation system can be used in any kind of lawn care in Denver, and timers and mulch can be combined for added effectiveness and sustainability. In addition to the watering system, a provider of natural planting and design will help to balance out the needs of design and function, to create the perfect oasis of beauty for any client.

Denver Mowing

Here along the front range, there is a smog problem.

Smog “dirties our air, clouds our cities, and drives up our health care costs,” EPA administrator Lisa Jackson said, projecting health-cost savings in the billions of dollars.

and consider this:

Clean and Quiet

Isn’t a garden supposed to be a peaceful sanctuary– A place to escape the racket and hubbub of the outside world? Of course. But gas powered garden equipment destroys that lovely calm.

In most neighborhoods you hear the incessant din of blowers, mowers, edgers, weed whackers, and all the other gas-powered weapons of horticulture.  –  Owen E. Dell

Our clean and quiet electric equipment is 50-70% quieter than the traditional gas-powered equipment. Hear that?… neither do we.

Before and After Photos

Below are some photos from one of the landscaping maintenance contracts we took over this summer.    The irrigation system had been neglected for the past few years and the yard was in rough shape.  Above and Beyond Ecoscapes repaired the irrigation system and brought the turf back to life with organic fertilizers.
