Lewis Natural Landscapes specializes in perennial gardens, specialty pruning, patios & walkways and more. We offer consulting services for those of you who want to DIY but need some help.
We travel throughout Somerset, Monmouth, Middlesex, Union, and parts of Mercer, Hunterdon, Morris and Ocean Counties. Contact us for an estimate!
Creative use of perennial plants adds color & texture to the landscape. We use native plants in our perennial beds that will attract and support butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and other species of birds. We can also create gardens with plant options that are much less palatable to deer.
Patios & Walkways
Flagstone is an option for a less costly and more natural alternative to man-made pavers (we use pavers on projects as well!). We can help you design and install your new seating area.
Sustainable practices & native plants drastically reduce the need for supplemental watering, however, if an irrigation system is to be used it should be serviced regularly to optimize efficiency. We maintain and repair existing irrigation systems or we can set up a drip irrigation system for your beds.
Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
Low Voltage lighting is an easy way to highlight landscape elements and create dramatic effects in the nighttime landscape while increasing security.
Synthetic fertilizers cause a short-term flush of plant growth but have no positive long-term benefits. Opt for building the soil with compost & amendments and the need for fertilizer diminishes (along with the negative impact on the environment!) For a more sustainable landscape, feed the soil not the plants.
Proper maintenance is vital to long-term plant health and helps create the desired aesthetic. For example, hand-pruning techniques develop a plant's natural form (rather than fighting nature!) and help promote better blooms. We also offer spring and fall cleanups.
Note: WE DO NOT OFFER WEEKLY LAWNCARE OR MAINTENANCE.
Turf Renovation & Seeding
A thick, healthy turf stand is the best way to prevent weeds and reduce pesticide usage. By amending the soil and aerating/seeding every year, a healthy, beautiful lawn can be achieved without the use of harmful fertilizers & pesticides.
