Professional Installation

Innovative designs, natural beauty, functional and sustainable features – that’s how we transform land into art. Artscape professionally installs our “greenscape” designs, including bed preparation and the installation of the best quality soils. Artscape personally selects and plants all the trees, plants, groundcovers, annuals and perennials. We also add a granular weed preventer and only “Grade A” quality cypress and pine mulches. To us, quality is more important than quantity. For you, that means you get extra attention to detail on every aspect of your project.

How does Artscape begin a landscape installation?

For starters, each landscape bed is created from scratch and carefully prepared with a generous layer of rich, nutrient garden soil with the proper PH level for maximum health. We support local businesses, so plants and trees are selected from only Louisiana wholesale nurseries, and we ensure they are always the healthiest of the batch.

What about weeds?

We believe in the saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” so we include a weed preventer with all Artscape installations. The preventer we use is a natural, granular chemical that biodegrades into the soil to prevent most weeds from germinating again. Plus, this weed preventer is also safe to use around children and pets and lasts for a full 6 months.

How do I maintain my garden?

All landscaping requires some maintenance, but we try to design them to be as low-maintenance as possible. We provide you with a “Do-It-Yourself Maintenance Schedule” that includes month-to-month care along with “Landscape Maintenance Information” which includes where to purchase replacement plants, mulch, soils, and parts for lighting and irrigation systems. If you do not have the time or energy to maintain the project on your own, we will also supply you with a list of highly recommended landscape maintenance contractors in town, including our sister company, Shelly Bernstein Landscape Maintenance at 504-234-4944.

Do I need a sprinkler system?

Water is the most vital nutrient to plants. Even though Louisiana gets plenty of rain each year, most of those showers are not every day. All plant materials in the southern Louisiana heat will die very quickly without a daily dose of water. Automatic sprinkler systems ensure all plant materials receive the proper amounts of water each day. Our sprinkler systems are reasonably priced and actually can save you money because the system waters your garden before the sun rises with only the minimum amount of water the plants need to thrive.

RainBird® Micro-Sprinkler Systems

Artscape designs and installs this affordable and water-conserving automatic irrigation system. It connects to your existing outdoor water faucet with an automatic timer. This is a durable, all rubber low-maintenance sprinkler system with real spray heads. The heads are already a few inches out of the ground and spray water in a variety of patterns – ideal for residential gardens at a fraction of the cost of a large system.

RainBird® PVC Computerized Sprinkler Systems

Made from hard PVC piping, this system includes the popular and powerful pop-up sprinkler heads. This automatic system uses a computerized main controller box so water can be monitored from inside or outside your home or business. Great for large residential and most commercial projects, it’s ideal for large landscapes with many beds or large lawn areas.

*All Artscape installation projects include a full one year warranty
