Landscaping & Gardening
Nearly every gardener has experienced the problem of too much shade, which can cause plants to become too leggy or fail to thrive. Whether it's a wooded suburban lot or a north-facing apartment balcony, low light means more growing challenges. Rather than being problematic, these dark areas can be viewed as an opportunity.
Adding containers to shady spots is a practical way to optimize these spaces. By using brightly colored or shiny metal pots, combined with lighter or contrasting hues of foliage and flowers, these decorative arrangements can brighten up even the darkest corner of a porch, deck, or entryway.
Maqsupplies does residential, commercial and strata landscaping both designing and maintaining beautiful complex grounds. We adhere to the strict standards regarding landscape maintenance laid out by the Professional Landscape Network.
We are a very personable company that prides themselves on great communication because we know it takes more than just excellent work to get the job done right the first time. We are a environmentally conscience company that implements Integrated Pest Management and other eco-friendly ways to deal with pest and weeds instead of using chemicals. Our shrub/lawn fertilizer is organic based and is completely safe for pets and people. Choosing the right plants is essential to successful shade gardening. Woodland natives, ferns, and hostas are just a few plants that prefer lower light levels. Many garden specimens will thrive equally well in containers, given the right conditions. A single plant, such as Japanese maple or bamboo, can be just as compelling as a combination.
Plants with attractive foliage offer reliable season-long color. Coleus are workhorses of the shade garden, with a nearly endless array of colors. Other reliable foliage standbys include Japanese painted fern, sweet potato vine, and Rex begonias. Optimal growing conditions are essential to healthy shade container plantings. We use high-quality potting soil, replenishing it annually.We mixes a time-release fertilizer into the top several inches of soil before planting. Because containers need frequent watering during hot summer months, nutrients quickly leach out of the soil. In midsummer, Hardiman supplements with a water-soluble bloom booster fertilizer every other week.
