What are the top considerations for Landscapers in Oregon?

Landscape contractors and homeowners looking towards long-term healthy landscape maintenance should have in mind the climate and natural risks that face Oregon and its residents.

Floods make up the biggest of those threats. Soil erosion is one of the big long-term effects of that, so it's recommended to install retaining walls as well as rocks and mulch.

Earthquakes come as a second, especially in Oregon City, so it's important in any landscape construction to take into account materials that could withstand such disasters.

And as climate change affects all states, wildfires, and droughts are also current threats.

Water scarcity is ironically not at odds with floods, so many landscapers in Oregon have to consider that not just with plants but also with water features and irrigation systems.

What Planting Zone Is Oregon In?

The Oregon hardiness zones stretch from Zone 4 (4b) to Zone 9. They are one of the most expansive states with a wide difference between one area and the other.

The southern coastal region is the warmest and covers zone 7 to 9. Oregon City and Greater Portland metro area, for example, fall within Zone 8.

Zone 4 to 5 covers the northern parts. And Central Oregon is placed in zone 6.

However, Oregon is one of the states with many micro-climates within, and even two neighboring areas could have very different climates.

For example, most of the western region of Oregon has a humid oceanic climate due to the pacific ocean, while eastern Oregon has a cooler arid climate.

What plants thrive in those zones?

Winter in Zone 4b and 5 minimally varies between negative fifteen and negative twenty. The sharp winters and short growing seasons in Illinois' northern cities falling in zone 5 demand cold-hardy plants in your garden. Snowfall and rainfall are also heavier there.

Those include vegetables like beet, chives, and butternut squash. And plants like Yarrow, Phlox, Hydrangea, and Geranium.

Zone 6 and 7 have minimum winter temperatures between negative ten and zero. That's a medium-length growing season.

Some of the best plants for those winters include Tulips, Asters, daffodils (which are technically weeds), Salvia, and Lillies.

Zone 8 and 9 have a relatively long growing season, hot summers, and mild winters. Beautiful garden and lawn flowering plants like jasmine, Tulips, and lilies, as well as vegetables like onions, spinach, and radish, can be perfectly grown in those zones.

Should I Go Native?

Native plants, shrubs, and trees are always a good choice. Naturally, a native plant is more adapted and suited to the climate and can survive without a lot of interference, watering, fertilization, and general landscape maintenance.

So it's easy to do an amazing job with your yard by including at least some native plants in your landscaping. Native plants can also be more hardy and able to survive flooding. And of course, droughts.

Landscaping with native plants is also good for the environment as a whole as it's beneficial to wildlife.

What landscape design styles are popular in Oregon?

Oregon landscaping takes a lot of inspiration from the rich natural landscape around the state. The Mediterranean landscape design is a popular one, as well as desert gardens with drought-tolerant plants, trees, and shrubs.

Modern home landscaping with outdoor living areas is also very popular for residential landscapes, especially in the Portland area.

Traditional landscaping remains popular in suburbs like Happy Valley.

Eco-friendly landscaping with smart irrigation systems and native pollinator-friendly plants is also rising in popularity, especially with replacing lawns with natural meadows.

It's less lawn care and maintenance as well as having an efficient, functional quality to any property.

What Are The Popular Hardscaping Materials and Elements in Oregon?

Soil erosion-resistant landscaping is very important in Oregon, especially in Oregon City. Retaining walls, mulch, and rocks are the top hardscaping materials and elements in the landscaping business in Oregon City, among residential and commercial clients.

High-quality materials for backyard and patios hardscaping are also very important due to the earthquakes Oregon suffers. Steel-reinforced concrete for residential outside rooms is rising in popularity.
