That’s why the Rosehill Garden Center in Kansas City stocks a wide variety for you to select from.

Statuary within your garden can be as simple as the lovable garden gnome or as grand as a life-size replica of Winged Victory. The trick is to install statues that blend well with your landscape and match your home in both physical appeal and size.

Further, you want all of your statues to fit well with one another and ultimately create a unified theme. Thus, if you have cherubs made of marble in one area, angels in another would be a good companion.

Essentially, when you install statuary, you are creating a community, and you want it to be harmonious. This not only enhances its visual appeal, but it can also considerably boost resale value.

When you’re placing statues, be sure that you locate them in areas where they will be seen and can enhance the overall landscape from a distance. They should attract attention but not be so overbearing that they distract from flower beds, seating areas, or pool areas.

Their size, in addition to their quantity, is important to achieving the perfect appearance. Remember, two to three well-positioned and proportioned statues look nice; 20 to 30 ill-proportioned statues look cluttered.

Contacting the experts in our garden center in Kansas City is your one-stop shop to enhance your landscape. Whether you’re searching for plants, fountains, or stationary statues, we have a large selection of items available for you to select from.

We invite you to contact us or stop by to look around and determine with our experts what’s best for your residential or commercial landscape.

Learn the Benefits of Using Drip Irrigation in Your Garden

One of the biggest challenges of landscaping is ensuring that proper levels of irrigation are provided to every inch of the landscape.

Because of this, the team at Rosehill Gardens takes great care when our clients contact us requesting irrigation system design.

Depending on the landscape, proper irrigation might require a combination of irrigation systems. Among these, drip irrigation is ideal for flower beds, gardens, and other areas where you want to target individual plants without watering the mulch, rocks, and other landscaping materials surrounding it that don’t require water.

Drip irrigation systems deliver water directly to the root system. This cuts down waste, reduces evaporation, and virtually eliminates any runoff that might occur. This makes drip irrigation system design eco-friendly and incredibly cost-efficient.

Another option to consider is to use soaker hoses. Openings cut into the hose at the appropriate places allow water to drip water exactly where you want it. Lengths vary, but these types of systems can be used for short runs or runs up to about 200 feet over flat surfaces. This gives landscapers considerable flexibility regarding installation and positioning.

Soaker hoses are more temporary in nature, and they are less efficient than drip irrigation systems. However, since they require less planning to install, they are easier to set up.

Once in place, they can be adjusted and moved around as the conditions within your landscape change and evolve. Thus, if you are still in the process of finalizing your landscape design, they are an ideal option to consider.

Our experts are available to assist you in planning out the best irrigation system to ensure your residential or commercial landscaping receives just the right amount of water this winter. Contact Rosehill Gardens at 816-877-9175 for more information today.
