Running your own photography business gives you so much flexibility in the work you do. If you provide service for portraits, weddings, or family photos, you may find yourself traveling all around the areas that you serve to take photos in beautiful, unique, or unusual settings. You may have also created a few sets in your backyard that your clients can use for their photo sessions.
When you combine the time that you spend in meetings, taking photos, and editing photos, you may not have much time on your hands to maintain the landscape around your sets. You should hire a landscaping design company to help by providing routine service to these specific areas.
Maintain the Lawn
If a portion or all of a set is on the lawn, you want to include lawn maintenance in the service. This ranges from simple tasks such as mowing and edging to re-seeding if it is necessary. By getting this service every week or every other week, you will always have a manicured lawn. Making it a routine will allow you to schedule photo shoots around the landscaping service.
Another thing that your landscape will need is plant control. If a perennial is getting out of hand, a landscaper will trim it down as soon as they arrive at your property for routine upkeep. Some services may include tree trimming and pruning, which is ideal when trees are a main attraction. You want to avoid overgrown branches or dangling branches that could break during a session.
Maintaining a clean landscape is imperative for photo shoots to go well and photos to look impressive. But, the demand for this service may change based on the season. Spring may lead to a lot of growth and blooming, but what falls off can make quite a mess during summertime. Also, when tree leaves start falling during autumn, you will need frequent clean up.
To avoid spacing out the service too far, you should consult with landscaping professionals to determine which months are best for weekly service and what months are ideal for biweekly.
Even with consistent upkeep, some problems can still happen in the yard. For instance, weeds may grow in the lawn or in mulch beds where there is insufficient mulch coverage. Grass may start to yellow, but it will be easier to tackle when an expert catches the problem early on.
Having photo shoots in your backyard will be enjoyable and successful when you get routine landscape service so that the entire property is always spotless and attractive.
