Here are some great tricks and tips to help you create the landscape of your dreams.
Start your landscaping project by developing a list of your necessary materials. This can help you to avoid the dreaded problem of starting your project, only to find that you have forgotten to purchase something and need to stop and wait until you can obtain the necessary supplies.
Invest in a drip style watering system for your plants. These irrigation systems can be easily installed and they could give your plants continuous streams of water. The water is much more efficient but it's a drip and not a stream, which is what's used for hoses and sprinklers.
Get the most out of your landscaping efforts by creating a multi-seasonal garden. Select plants that will grow in the fall, spring, summer and winter, as is realistic for your area. Trees that bear interesting or colorful foliage, as well as evergreens, are another great way to keep your lawn looking lovely throughout the year.
Which plants you choose can impact the success of your landscaping project. You'll want to avoid placing plants that need lots of sunlight in areas that are shady. You'll be unhappy if a tree is planted in a place that won't give it room to grow. Different plants may thrive in different areas of your lawn so plan carefully.
