Wood Construction

Our Carpenters Are True Craftsmen

Wood ConstructionThere are a lot of different materials that can be used when constructing a new landscape project. There are jobs when it is obvious what the best materials to use would be, because of access, existing materials, house structure, etc. and other jobs where it is not as obvious, like when there are steps or spans to cross, weight, function and usage, etc.. Landcare’s designers and carpenters know what to use where.

Wood construction seems to be more subtle and soft. It is more pliable and thus can be used for more applications. It is structurally strong and has a good life span. It can provide a nice contrast to the harder veneer of stone or the lightness of plants. Wood will weather over time allowing it to gain a patina which some people like. While other people prefer the “new” look which can be maintained thru a simple cleaning, staining or sealing.
