Planting of Shrubbery, Trees, Flowers:

raleigh landscaping image of house with shrubs and trees planted Plant installation is a popular way to enhance the beauty of your landscape.  It can include planting of annuals, shrubbery, trees, or ornamental grasses in many combinations.

Lewey Landscaping & LawnCare, Inc. has over thirty years in the landscaping business and provides expertise in proper plant installation regarding sunlight, shade, placement, and beauty.

Planting is most effective in cooler weather to allow plant material to take root without having to water as much as in the heat of the summer. Field trees may not be available for digging in the summer. Best times to plant are in the spring before it reaches 90 degrees, and in the fall before the ground freezes.

Sod Installation
Sod Installation Services and Options:

If you have difficulties with grass growth, our company can make recommendations based on visual inspection and water availability. Sod may be an option for your home or business. There are many types of turf available. How do you know which is right for you? We will help you select the sod type that will thrive based on the natural lighting, care requirements, and personal preferences.

    1. Cool season sod in the Triangle is typically Fescue and should be planted in cooler weather or have the availability of irrigation or soaker hoses

    2. Warm season sod may include Bermuda, Zoysia, or Centipede and Lewey Landscaping & LawnCare recommends that it be planted when the turf is green for best root growth. Warm season sod will be dormant (or turn brown) in the fall and winter after the first killing frost.  For client properties with new grass, you may elect to overseed with rye after September and install sod in the spring if you prefer warm season turf.
  • Sod installation includes proper ground preparation, lime, and starter fertilizer prior to laying the sod.

  • Sod is guaranteed through the installation process. Instructions are provided for proper watering and care for all clients.
Stack Stone Walls
Stack Stone Walls - Upscale, Functional and Timeless:

Enhance the beauty of your home or business landscape by adding a stone stack wall. Using your selection of stone, Lewey Landscaping & LawnCare, Inc, will custom design, build, and install your stone wall. Co-owner, Mike Lewey, will be on-site to personally supervise the installation.

Stack stone walls contribute lasting and functional structures that can be used to:

  • Border prominent trees you would like to feature

  • Highlight and protect shrubbery beds

  • Provide social seating and gathering areas

  • Support for tiered landscape designs

  • Level slopes in your land

Commercial clients can also employ stone stack walls:

  • To provide designated smoking areas

  • As an upscale background to business signs
Irrigation Installation
Irrigation Installation:

Standard considerations for installing a new system include:

  • What is the intended purpose of the system?
  • Is system for a new construction or an existing property?
  • What is the water source?
  • Are there separate meters in place for the interior and exterior?

Exploring these questions will help you be informed of the different nuances involved with an irrigation installation.  You may incur additional meter expenses for an existing property that are not as apparent as with a new construction.  There are additional considerations with properties that operate under a well and holding tank.  Properties under fertilization programs or plant areas that need additional care may benefit from properly timed irrigation systems or just the savings of time if you regularly hand water or move sprinklers to achieve the desired effect.

Lewey Landscaping & LawnCare can provide an estimate of cost based on your responses to the above questions and any other requirements along with a walk-through of the property.

Landscape Lighting

raleigh landscaping image of house with shrubs and trees plantedProvide a beautiful backdrop for your home and landscape design through the installation of outdoor landscape lighting. Many lighting fixture styles are available and will operate off your existing electrical units.

All lighting is custom installed to fit the client's requirements for dramatic effect. The fall and winter are a great time to install ornamental landscape lighting as the sun sets much earlier and it showcases your home to family and friends.

 

 

Drainage Solutions

Drainage solutions do not offer the natural beauty the client may receive from other landscaping projects, but offer tremendous relief when water issues, like standing water, can be corrected through proper diversion.


Trenching, French Drains, and Retaining Walls are a few solutions possible for diverting or redirecting water flow.  Lewey Landscaping & LawnCare has over 30 years experience working with drainage concerns.
