Landscaping Schenectady NY
There is much depth and hidden beauty in the pursuit of landscaping Schenectady NY. The microbiomes are varied and sundry. Once you cross the bridge via Balltown Rd and arrive in Niskayuna, the temperature rises. It’s much warmer south of the Mohawk River. Some months of the year, the discrepancy in average daily temperature change is upwards of ten degrees from Saratoga County to Albany or Schenectady County!
The natural biodiversity in Schenectady, NY is breath taking. With real treasures like the Vale Green Cemetery holding natural space in the urban environs, Schenectady is special. Additionally, there’s a wide variety of ecosystems represented in the well cared for nature preserves. The western Albany Pinebush land exists in Schenectady, in such preserves as the Kings Rd Truax Trail Barrens Park. The neighborhoods surrounding the western Pinebush have sandy soil. Landscaping in sand is rewarding if you know what you’re doing.
Much of Schenectady has glacial till clay. Most neighborhoods in Niskayuna have the most delicious, nutrient dense clay soil. The large urban neighborhoods surrounding Union College are blessed with the same high brix strata. For native plant literate professionals, landscaping in clay soil is the dream. The plant palette available of clay loving native species is thrilling. Education and experience are key to successfully navigating a clay garden design and installation. All things considered, Jessecology is ready, willing and able to design + build stunning gardens in your Schenectady clay site.
