DRAINAGE & EROSION CONTROL

Line

Most people don’t think about drainage and erosion control. If it’s working correctly it basically becomes an invisible part of landscapes, streetscapes and home sites. If it’s not working or working poorly it becomes a nightmare very fast. Flooding, water damage and erosion are signs of poor planning and construction. With our unpredictable mountain weather natural flooding can occur any where in Eagle County at any time. Man made drainage and erosion issues can sometimes be even worse so it’s critical that every site from Gypsum to Vail, Eagle to Edwards, be protected and inspected. Every building and landscape is at risk without adequate grading, erosion controls and subsurface drainage pipe to carry off water safely. Don’t let your landscape or home site be damaged by water or snow. Mountainous communities like Cordillera, Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch and Vail should always be aware of the potential damage that can occur from running water. Proper surface grading away from foundations and features can protect your landscape and home. Proper installation of drainage pipe can carry off water to safe daylight locations where runoff can be handled. Protect your Vail Valley home by installing the proper drainage and erosion control measures, it can potentially save you expensive fines and clean ups. Remember also, trees and turf grasses suffer because of poor drainage, so protect your plant material and your investments by having adequate drainage and erosion control measures installed and inspected.

IRRIGATION START UP & WINTERIZATION

Line

Warm weather comes to Eagle and Gypsum in April but sometimes it can take until early June to thaw the properties in Vail, Beaver Creek and Cordillera. The funny thing is as soon as the snow melts we have to turn on our irrigation systems. Our dry, high dessert climate requires that irrigation systems are working and working right. In the spring we offer an irrigation start up service where we charge the system, check for leaks and make the minor adjustments necessary for good coverage and operation. This service is critical for the overall success of your landscape. In late September we begin our work on the other end of the valley in East Vail. It’s important before freezing temperatures set in on Vail, Beaver Creek, Avon and Edwards, that we complete a fall irrigation maintenance program. In the fall we will shut off your irrigation, make any needed repairs, and then winterize your system using compressed air to blow out any excess water left in the lines. All the water must be evacuated before winter so there is no chance that pipes might freeze and break causing costly repairs. Down valley residents of Gypsum and Eagle can wait into October to complete their winterizations but remember no matter where you live in Eagle County this service is a must!!

 

IRRIGATION SYSTEMS

Line

In our semi-arid climate irrigation systems are the heart and soul of every landscape. That’s why we serve every community in the Vail Valley including Gypsum, Eagle, Edwards, Avon and Vail. Without good, efficient watering no landscape can thrive in this environment. We take pride in offering a full line of irrigation services including design, installation and maintenance. A well built, well kept irrigation system is often the difference between a healthy and beautiful landscape and one that struggles. Poor irrigation design, installation and operation can be damaging to trees, shrubs, turf grass and buildings. It is critical to have an irrigation system that works and works well. Our dedicated irrigation staff is experienced with all types of systems and can repair, maintain and operate yours efficiently. Let us help you save water, time and money. Ask our professional staff how to get the most value out of your watering system. We have experience with all types of pumps, pipes and large equipment too.

 

RE-DESIGN AND UPGRADES

Line

As our lives change often times so do our homes, our activities and our tastes. Additions and changes to our properties and landscapes are no different. Many of us live in maturing communities from Gypsum to Vail and sometimes we’re just ready for something new. Allow our design and construction teams to re-design and upgrade your landscape to fit your new vision. New plantings, new irrigation, new walkways and patios can bring an older property back to life. Whether you’re in Eagle, Edwards, Avon or Beaver Creek, from time to time even the most beautiful landscapes need a face lift. Inject new life into your Vail Valley property with a re-model, an upgrade or an addition. Remember too, if you’re trying to market or sell your property a first and lasting impression are often made by the landscaping. Invest in your investment.

 

WATER FEATURES

Line

There’s nothing like the look and sound of a mountain stream unless you have a water feature built by SHC Landscape. A water feature can be the crowning touch to any magnificent landscape and our professional staff will be happy to design and build one for you. The mountain terrain in and around Vail, Beaver Creek, Edwards and Avon offers the perfect opportunity to utilize natural contours and elevation changes to create dramatic and beautiful cascades of water. Features can include streams, pools, waterfalls and lighting. We can also create pond-less designs that are clean, efficient and beautiful. We will help you select the right pumps, pipes, liners and materials for your site. Indigenous rocks can be harvested on your property and used for construction or stones, boulders and gravel can be chosen from off site to match your home and existing landscape. If you are fortunate enough to have natural flowing water on your property, we can enhance it. If you want to create a feature from scratch we can design it, excavate it, build it, landscape it and maintain it. Don’t forget that water features and pumps need to be maintained and winterized each year. Let us show you some of the excellent examples of our work so you can envision a water feature on your property.

 

XERISCAPING

Line

Water usage and water savings have become common topics in the Vail Valley when discussing landscape design, construction and maintenance. Xeriscaping and the philosophy of using little or no water to grow and maintain sustainable landscapes has become very popular in Gypsum, Eagle and other dry areas of Eagle County. The use of drought resistant native plants and the avoidance of thirsty turf grasses mean these landscapes are simple, practical, and very beautiful in their own way. With the proper selection of plants, mulches, stones and irrigation these xeriscapes can become nearly maintenance free and that appeals to many clients. We at SHC Landscape have experience designing and installing xeriscape projects and we believe that the future of landscaping will forever incorporate these water saving philosophies. Contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss if your home or business could benefit from a xeriscape construction or re-model. We encourage clients throughout the Vail Valley to look into the possibilities.
