#1 in Oak Island Lawn Maintenance

If you are one of the many homeowners or businesses using our Oak Island lawn maintenance services you already know how thorough and reliable we are. We are not one of the companies that are comfortable performing only the bare minimum on our properties before we move on to the next.

We know there’s a big difference between doing the bare minimum of  lawn maintenance and moving on to the next place, and performing a complete and comprehensive service, such as each of our Oak Island lawn maintenance clients. Our services include edging all of your beds when it’s needed as well as string trimming every time we mow. We manage all of the beds on the property – perennial and annual flower beds, shrub beds, stone gardens and mulch beds – removing weeds and any debris that wanders in. We regularly check your lawn for disease or insect damage and treat it accordingly when necessary. We make sure all of your property is getting adequate water and make recommendations on irrigation adjustments or installation when deemed necessary.

We are proud that our Oak Island lawn maintenance professionals are a step above the others in the area and we work hard to uphold that reputation. If you ever have any concerns about our services – what we do and how we do it – give us a call at 910-755-6411 and we’ll be happy to talk with you.

Having your property professionally designed by landscapers in North Carolina who are experienced in coastal growing conditions is of the utmost importance. This is one time where experience should outweigh price because in the long run, if you don’t have the right type of plantings for your coastal growing conditions and have them installed correctly, you’ll be replacing them in a fairly short time.

Our professionals will work within your budget to conceptualize and implement a landscape design that will be based on your style and taste as well as enhance your property. All landscapers in North Carolina do not operate this way. We will seek your approval on our design ideas and appreciate any feedback you might have.

Precision Calabash Irrigation

A healthy, green lawn and superb gardens can only be as good as the irrigation system you are using. Carolina Creations, your preferred Calabash irrigation installers, can design and install a  system that will adequately water your entire landscape from lawns to gardens.

Carolina Creations handles all types of irrigation installation.

A site analysis is an important step in designing any irrigation system.  Carolina Creations is experienced in installing and maintaining Calabash irrigation systems so we are prepared to send our professional irrigation experts  to your home or business and assess your irrigation needs. We use a variety of different types of watering systems including above ground sprinkler systems and underground systems. There are times when a drip irrigation system would work best, in some flower beds for instance where it’s most beneficial to only water the roots.

Let the preferred Calabash irrigation installers provide you with carefree maintenance of your landscape when it comes to watering. No more dragging out the hoses, sprinkler heads and watering cans. You won’t have to think about when it last rained or will be raining again. Irrigation systems turn on and off by a timer that is preset to how often your landscape needs to be watered. Our irrigation professionals will recommend the correct frequency and duration of operation based on the area of your landscape and type of plants the irrigation system is servicing. For instance, your front lawn in full sun would require more watering than your shade gardens in the rear yard.

A Back Yard Vacation

During this economic down turn people are trying harder than ever to save money or invest smarter. One popular way that families are trying to save money is staying home during their yearly vacation instead of travelling. Families are also beginning to invest monies that would normally be spent on vacations or other activites on raising the value of their own homes. One way to combine these two projects is having a swimming pool in your own back yard. It provides endless hours of summer fun for the whole family, and an outdoor room suitable for entertaining.

There are a wide range of options to consider when you choose your pool and its decking. Carolina Creations Landscapes recommends using a fiberglass pool. These pools are stronger than concrete and so much easier to maintain. The surface is smooth, algae resistant and they use about 70% less chemicals than traditional concrete pools, making them much easier for the homeowner to maintain. Thus making the pool and the outdoor room it creates more affordable in the long run. There is a large selection of pool decking options too, from wood decking, to ceramic tile, to paver patios, stamped concrete and just about anything in between. You can choose any surface that best meets your needs and expectations.

By installing a pool, you can transform your back yard into your own personal oasis. You can also have a patio area complete with fire pit excellent for outdoor entertaining on cool nights. Or you can build an outdoor kitchen perfect for birthday parties or any social gatherings. You can have an elaborate arbor system that provides a shaded area for those hot summer days or just a cooler place to relax while you read your favorite book. Using a pool in conjunction with any of these areas will provide you with your own back yard vacation that you can frequent as often as you like.
