Spring is upon us and the best way to add instant beauty to your home and keep your plants healthy all season long is to freshen up your plant beds with new mulch. Mulch helps retain water to keep roots moist throughout the heat of late spring and summer so you’ll water less frequently and your plants will stay perky. Be sure not to mulch too thick around shrubs or tree trunks which can starve them of oxygen.
Do you normally use shredded hardwood mulch? Why not try dyed brown mulch for a change. The dyed color helps mulch hold it’s color all season long so it will look freshly applied. Dyed mulch can also come in a variety of other colors but remember that neutral colors will keep your landscape beds looking natural. The goal is to use your landscape to highlight your homes architecture and beauty and less is always more.

As winter approaches it is getting darker earlier and earlier each evening. One way to combat coming home to a dark house is by adding low voltage landscape lighting to your outdoors. Path lights will illuminate your walkway for you or visitors and stealth up-lights can highlight the architecture of your home or create a soft glow on trees and shrubs. Low voltage landscape lighting will increase the value of your home and it will also deter thieves from lurking around the outside of your home.
We can get you set up with a custom lighting package and a transformer complete with a digital timer set to turn on and off at dusk and dawn, we make it hassle free! We offer several different styles and finishes for you to choose from and we can build your system with halogen lamps or LED bulbs depending on your preference. We’ve got some great fall specials going on now so call today to talk to a consultant. (309) 762-8533.
Adding a fire pit to your backyard is a great way to get use and enjoyment from your outdoors late into the fall season. By installing a stone fire pit you can create a destination point for gathering in your yard where you can sit with family and friends and enjoy the warmth of the fire on a chilly night or laugh and have fun while making s’mores. Take it one step further and have pavers installed around your fire pit which adds function and decoration. If you anticipate big gatherings or want to make the space cozier add seat walls around the outside for plenty of seating area.
Fire pits can be built round, square, above or below ground and with a number of different materials. Options are available for any size budget and we can help design the best fire pit for your home. Call Forest Green Landscape today to get set up

We think it’s important to show our customers all the new and exciting options that
landscaping offers. That’s why here at our office we are saying “out with the old and in
with the new”. We are currently in the finishing stages of a complete display remodel.
What started as an update on a basic fire pit area soon became a complete outdoor
overhaul that became an elegant and ultra custom outdoor living space. We wanted to
create an area that not only showcased different materials, colors and textures that we
offer for our customers landscape projects, but also how the proper artistry of blending
materials, colors and textures together can give you a stunning, one of a kind look.
Most importantly, this outdoor space highlights the superior craftsmanship that we strive
to achieve from our crew members during installation. Most people know that what’s
underneath the patio is important to the structural integrity of the patio itself, but do you
know to look at the way the pavers are installed on top as well? Here at our office we can
walk you through the attention to detail that we put into each customers project to show
you that when we install a project for you, you will be proud to show it off when it’s
If you would like to take a personal tour of our new outdoor living space call our office
today to set up an appointment for a walk-through. (309) 762-8533. We look forward to
showing off our masterpiece!
