This blog is our way of saying, “yes – we know what we’re doing. We care about you. And we care about the work that we’re doing. AND, we are always looking to improve, to expand, to learn.” Enough reasons to post regular content on the Taylor Fencing blog? We thought so as well.

Landscaping Tips and Tricks
If you continue to think about the best ways to enhance the outside of your home… you’re not alone. We’ve set it, we meant it, landscaping is only secondary to fencing as far as a calling card to visitors. If it looks good – great. If it looks bad – oh wow, can that have a ripple effect on a bunch of pieces related to the value of your home. Imagine trying to sell a property that nobody wants to visit after seeing what the landscaping looks like in the front and around the sides of your house. Not fun, right?
Don’t fret – as always, the Taylor Fencing team is here to help. And that means that we thought this particular article was one of full-fledged value to share. The angle in this article about tips and tricks for landscaping, is that the information is applicable all year long and it really doesn’t matter what climate or temperate zone that you live in. The best practices remain the same and the most important is to keep a pulse and an eye on anything that you’re planting or adding to your landscaping. Yes, it seems easy enough to add a plant in a pot to your front verandah, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need to maintain it and ensure that it lives a long and healthy life. Since beyond our Taylor Fencing fences, the landscaping of your property is the first thing that you see, we take a vested interest in ensuring that you’re doing it right. Interested?
