Sod, Topsoil, Pine Straw, and Mulch

Mulch is a layer of material applied to the surface of the soil. It is used to retain the soil’s moisture, suppress weeds, cool the soil, prevent frost in the winter, and make garden beds look more aesthetically appealing. Our team at Duncan’s Landscaping are experts in determining what types of mulch to use. Sit back and relax and watch your landscape transform into a beautiful backyard. We have the manpower and expertise to complete all your tasks. Contact Duncan’s Landscaping today and ask for an estimate on our sod, topsoil, pine straw, and mulch services.

Landscape Lighting

Landscape Lighting

Continue to enhance your outdoor living space with our outdoor lighting services. Beautifully designed and installed outdoor lighting can change the entire perspective of your landscape. Landscape lighting can be strategically placed to cast shadows, light up different aspects of your lawn, or purposely placed around walkways, stairs, ledges, and hazardous areas to improve your family’s safety. Not only will illuminating your yard at night add a modern vibe to your lawn, but it can help keep criminals at bay. Duncan’s Landscaping is ready to enhance your property with outside lighting. Contact us now.

Dry Creek Beds

Turn an eyesore into an asset and a beautiful part of your landscape with a dry creek bed. A dry creek bed is a beautifully carved trench design decorated with stones and edged around the outside with plants. To address erosion and water runoff, we can solve unsightly drainage areas by rerouting the water flow to create a more aesthetically pleasing and functional landscape.

A well-planned dry creek bed can also create a refuge for wildlife and prevent bank erosion. Contact Duncan’s Landscaping and we can show you how a dry creek bed could enhance your property.

Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space With a Beautifully Designed Water Feature

Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space With a Beautifully Designed Water Feature

Water features put a finishing touch on a beautiful landscape. They host a variety of benefits for your yard, including serving as your landscape’s centerpiece. An eye-catching water feature will add sound, movement, and beauty to your outdoor area. Most water features can fit in small compact yards, are low maintenance, and play a crucial part in the ecosystem as they attract a host of wildlife.

Duncan’s Landscaping customizes, designs, and installs a broad range of water features, including ponds, fountains, fountainscapes, and pondless waterfalls. We also handle the maintenance and clean-out of your ponds. If you are a resident, business, or commercial property owner in the south metro Atlanta area looking to enhance your outdoor living space, give Duncan’s Landscaping a call.

When you choose to add a pond or small waterfall with a natural look and feel to it, it can create a calming oasis outside your home. Duncan’s Landscaping offers a variety of ideas and elements of all shapes and sizes.

Fountainscapes

Fountainscapes

Add the peaceful sound of water to your landscape or patio without the added maintenance and responsibility of a traditional waterfall or pond. Fountainscapes are perfect for our customers who want to add a water feature to their property without the headaches of routine maintenance.

Fountainscapes are decorative water features that incorporate a container water garden, a bubbling urn, or a sphere using an in-ground reservoir. Peaceful and relaxing, your outdoor space will invoke all the ambiance of an outdoor aquatic oasis without the cost and upkeep of a pond or stream. They are child-friendly, energy-efficient, and perfect as a starter water feature. Contact Duncan’s Landscaping today and learn how this low-maintenance item can transform the scenery in your backyard.

Pondless Waterfalls

Pondless Waterfalls

Looking for a low-maintenance way to enhance your outdoor lifestyle? Why not try a pondless waterfall? A pondless waterfall is simply a waterfall and stream without the presence of a pond. Waterfalls are undoubtedly the most beautiful and favored feature in a landscape. They add tranquility, comfort, and the added sense of being on vacation in your backyard. But if space is an issue or you have concerns about the safety of a traditional pond, a pondless waterfall may be for you.

Water is pumped to the waterfall or rock fountain and disappears into a pondless basin containing the vault and pump. These water features can also have a stream incorporated into the design for added interest. Because there is no pool of water, a pondless waterfall is a great option for customers concerned about safety issues or lack of space. There are several other benefits to installing pondless waterfalls. They include:

Cost
Because there is less labor involved, operating costs are less. There is usually less cost due to the need for fewer rocks and materials, and because you are not dealing with an established ecosystem, it is not necessary to run the pump 24-hours a day.

Flexibility
If you change your mind in the future, it is easy to add a pond to a pondless waterfall.

Space
The small size of the Pondless Waterfall means you can build and enjoy a beautiful waterfall anywhere in your yard.

Maintenance
Taking care of your Pondless Waterfall is easy. You will simply need to fill the reservoir every few weeks to compensate for water loss due to evaporation.
Pondless Waterfalls give you the benefits of a beautiful, flowing waterfall without the pond at the bottom. This option is low-maintenance without giving up the sights and sounds of water. Give into serenity and start living the pond lifestyle today! Contact Duncan’s Landscaping to find out how!

Pond Clean Out and Maintenance

All man-made ponds need regular cleaning and maintenance to prevent silt from building up. We recommend having your pond cleaned out once annually, followed by proper maintenance year-round. This can seem overwhelming and time-consuming. Fortunately, Duncan’s Landscaping offers professional pond clean-outs and maintenance. The best time to perform a pond clean-out is in late winter. This is before your water garden completely awakens from its winter dormancy and ideally before the water temperature in the pond rises above 55 degrees.

Duncan’s pond clean-out includes the following tasks in this order:

  • We drain the pond down to six-inches
  • Remove fish and place in large containers with original pond water
  • Drain remainder of the pond
  • Power wash pond and any stream/waterfall
  • Remove debris and clean all filter pads, bio balls, biofall unit, skimmer, and pump as needed
  • Clean up existing water plants and remove excessive dead organic matter as needed for the overall health of the ecosystem
  • Add dechlorinator if needed
  • At this time, we fill the pond with enough water to reintroduce any fish to the pond. Customer is responsible for filling up the remainder of the pond.*
  • Any water lighting products/koi fish/or aquatic plants should be requested by the client at this time***

* Please note, while every precaution will be taken to ensure the well-being of your fish, we are unable to guarantee their livelihood.
**Please let us know in advance of any water treatment products you would like used.

Duncan’s Landscaping & Maintenance wants to do everything we can to help maintain the efficiency of your aquatic beauty. This means keeping it fresh, clean, and free of algae and debris. Contact us today to schedule your pond cleaning, schedule monthly maintenance, or find out how we can create the backyard of your dreams.
