When you first gaze at the backyard, front yard, or wherever you plan to landscape and beautify, the task will first feel tough. Do-it-yourself gardening and landscaping can have so many variables: how you intend to use the yard, personal designs, the climate, budget, and even looking for a “landscape supply near me.” Still, there are tips we can show you to help you start on your merry landscaping way.
Do all your hardscaping projects before you even start planting for your garden. Hardscaping includes doing an arbour, patio, fencing, decks, parking areas, driveway, sidewalk, porch, playground, or a sandpit. These projects usually involve some construction. To avoid damaging any plants and turf, complete all heavy work before setting up the garden.
Choose wisely between bagged and bulk
When buying mulch, soil, stone, or even cement, enquire from your local landscape supply store if they sell in bulk and bagged. Buy in bulk if materials can be delivered and dumped on the spot where it will be spread. Buy bagged materials if it must be moved again after delivery.
Make mowing easy
When designing your landscape, group plants into beds and islands and mulch them well to avoid mowing or trimming around each individual plant.
Water features are easier than you think
A good landscape design that is trending now is the use of water features as focal points. This is because not only are water features aesthetic focal points, but they also emit soothing sounds. There are lots of pre-formed plastic or other cheap fountains available.
Incorporate your personality
Besides water features, add your personality to the garden with garden art, statues, architectural fragments, birdhouses, or miniatures. You can add low-voltage lighting to highlight specific items.
Work from a plan
Create a master plan for your DIY landscape project. Work in phases and always keep the budget in check to get the maximum effect by focusing on small projects. When one project is finished, move to the next until finally, the whole project is done.
