Landscape companies offer a host of different services. Some of the services are dedicated to maintaining your land, yard and garden to make them look better.
Landscaping your garden or lawn is a great spring task, but if you don’t have time or the desire to work in the mud and dirt, then you should hire a professional landscaping service provider. Landscaping companies work on all projects, both large and small. Landscaping has become a visual art and the landscaping companies have evolved their services according to client demands.
A glance at the service list of a reputable landscaping company will prove this to you. The landscapers treat each piece of land differently and do what is best for it.

The backyard. It’s your oasis. Your happy place. Your second living room. It’s the place to go not only for “me” time - but quality time with friends and family.
Think sheds. No, not your grandparents’ tattered shed filled with a dusty mower and 30-year-old paint brushes. We’re talking highly personalized sheds. Intimate covered spaces that keep the sun’s rays out but bring the summer in.
Outdoor sheds come in all shapes and sizes and can be personalized to fit within all types of lifestyles. From fun-filled tapsheds where friends gather for a margarita and grilled salmon to an intimate she shed stocked with wine and cheese or even a hobby shed for the family to play board games while munching on braised ribs and root beer, sheds can do it all.

5 steps to wake your lawn up for spring!
There are a lot of things people miss during the winter - flip-flops, shorts and warm sunshine. But one of the things homeowners miss the most is the sight of green grass.
For months their lawns go into hibernation and disappear under a blanket of snow. Once the temperature starts to rise and the days start getting longer, many are eager to get outside and restore their lawns to their former glory.

“There is always music amongst the trees in a garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.” Minnie Aumonier
I’m sitting here looking out over a snow-covered garden, trying to think of what inspires me as a garden designer, and how I’d describe that to someone who doesn’t get it. There just isn’t anything in the digital world that captures the experience you get when you are lost in a garden. Plant photos, pictures of garden scenes, digital sounds of nature… they’re all nice, but none of them compare to the romanticism of walking in fresh snow, taking in a fresh breath of air on a sunny day in February and listening to the breeze of the trees and the birds foraging for their next snack. Then reality struck: we’re in South Dakota so the breeze was an understatRead More
MULCH: IS IT GOOD OR BAD FOR YOUR TREES?
I always recommend that a tree be mulched for improved long-term health and reduced stress. However, how the mulch is applied and what types of “mulch” you use can have drastic, even harmful effects on tree and plant health. This article focuses on proper mulching techniques and tree health, but the principles will actually apply to just about all landscape plants.
When it comes to your tree’s root system, in the context of optimum health, competition
from turf grasses is the biggest challenge. Having an open area that extends to the drip-line (the area from the edge of the canopy in to the trunk) that is free of turf and has a two to four-inch layer of decomposable wood mulch, has been shown to increase size of a treesRead More

Many times when people think about remodeling, landscaping doesn’t immediately pop into their head; however, it can be a key component to the overall success of a remodeling project, especially in terms of additions to homes.

While their focus has been on landscape renovations, DakotaScapes also provides new construction landscape services.
