Landscaping with Less Water, Less Maintenance, and Less Impact on the Environment

Xeriscaping low maintenance landscapingHere's a word for ya: Xeriscape. The word itself is pretty weird, but the concept is simple and brilliant! It means to use water-effiecient plants and methods to create a landscape. The term xeros literally means dry in Greek. It is a practice that began in Colorado as a way to conserve water on landscaping designs and is quickly speading all over the globe. There are many benefits to this method and in Florida we primarily use it for villas and small yards. 

The main advantage of Xeriscaping is using less water. With many states experiencing drought this is can be a yard-saver for people on water restrictions. By using native plants that naturally consume less water, with the proper soil and sod to help maintain them, it is an amazing way to create a low matinence landscape. A properly maintain xeriscape uses one-third the water a traditional landscape does.

Of course this method is wonderful the environment, not only cutting water consumption but also reducing the need for powering up lawn tools. Most xeriscapes require little to no fertilizers if the plants are native and aclimented to the soil. They are designed to be little self-sustaining eco-systems, with little need for matienence, except for the occasional pruning and weeding. 

Florida has a wide variety of water-wise plants that can be used to keep your yard green all year, as well as seasonal plants to add splashes of color.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

I am extremely pleased with the landscaping just completed by Mansfield Landscaping at my residence on Janeann Terrace. This is the 2nd time we’ve used Mansfield—shortly after we moved to The Villages in 2007 and this recent job. They know what they are doing, listen to and work with the customer. Steve Mansfield is one fair and honest person to do business with, his landscaping team is diligent, hard working with polite, pleasant personalities. I would highly recommend Mansfield to anyone interested in doing any landscaping. There is no longer a concern as to which lawn mower will be in my yard—and and I really like my ‘LESS IS MORE’ LANDSCAPING. Many positive comments have come from my neighbors. Thank you Mansfield Landscaping.

Thank you for your great service. You did such a wonderful job on our lawn. I recommend you to every one. Mansfield Landscaping knows what they are doing.

Mr. & Mrs. Angelo Favazzo (The Villages)

Just had Mansfield landscape do our yard and am very happy with not only the work done, but with the large size and healthy quality of the plants and palms. The crew was wonderful and completed a major job in a half day. Extra plants were added and all the beds received extra mulching at no extra charge. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good, reliable landscape company.

Steve & his wonderful team did a wonderful job at our house. We look so pretty now! Feel free to ride by and check us out. They also work very quickly. People have been stopping in front of our house and they love what they see. We are so pleased with the end result. What a “dream team” Steve Mansfield has put together. I would like to thank each and every one of them for a fabulous job well done.

I would like to recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who might want some quality work. I called a week ago yesterday and one week later my work was done. I went from having the worst yard in the neighborhood to one of the nicest. Steve is almost annoyingly accommodating and insistent on pleasing. He recommended plants of different colors, something I wouldn't have thought of. My favorite part is the wall - the pieces look like mica. The supervisor was the nicest person and a good communicator. He really knew what he was doing, having worked for Steve for years and due to the volume of work Mansfield does. I feel so happy today, like you would if you just got a new car!

Linda Rogers (The Villages)

We could not believe Steve told us if we did not like the job, he would take it out with no extra cost to us. How could we go wrong? Our landscaping has added tremendous value to our home. You owe it to your yard to call Steve.

The Griffins (The Villages, Mallory Square)

We are very pleased with the results in both our yard and lanai. Steve warned us some plants were not hardy and when the frosts got them, he replaced a lot of them without being asked, and with no charge. We thoroughly recommend Mansfield Landscaping.
