YOUR ONLY RESOURCE FOR HENDERSON LANDSCAPING TIPS!
Garden landscaping can transform the space at the front or back of your house into a place you love to spend your free time in.
Doing it right can be the difference between enjoying a barbeque on a nice summers day and staring blankly out of the window wondering “Why did I ruin my garden?”
It’s easier than you think to do garden landscaping the right way.
Here are my five top tips to avoid a disaster.
1. Never Neglect Planning:
Planning is important in everything that you do. Especially when you want to do garden landscaping.
Sit down and think about what you actually want it to look like.
Consider where you want to put things and make sure that there’s going to be cohesion between everything. You don’t want to start designing things randomly. It’s not going to look good.
2. The Weather is Predictable:
What do you want to use the garden for?
Do you want sit outside in the summer and sunbathe or would you rather relax under the shade? The sun rises and sets consistently.
This makes it easier to plan your garden to suit your needs.
Another consideration is the rain. If you need to go outside a lot, make sure that you have a path and the garden doesn’t flood.
3. Have Something that Stands Out:
This can be something that’s visually appealing or simply a different color to the rest of the garden.
You may want to use a sculpture or a fountain. Some people have a tree or a flower bed.
Basically, the goal is to have something in the garden to act as a focal point and to attract the eye. But, be careful. It needs to be consistent with everything else.
4. Symmetry Simple isn’t worth it:
Landscape gardening in Henderson, on TV or in popular media gives us the impression that a perfect garden needs to be symmetrical.
It’s true that this makes it look nice and gives it a robust design. But, you have to take into consideration maintenance. If you arrange two trees in the corners or have symmetrical flowers beds, you have to take care to replace them when something goes wrong. What happens if a tree dies or birds destroy one flower bed?
In my opinion, it’s just not worth the extra trouble later down the line. Landscape gardening can be beautiful without symmetry.
5. The Wrong Combination of Flowers and Plants can be Ugly:
This is common sense but often forgotten. People like to choose and plant everything that they like the look of. But, they also forget the bigger picture.
The garden is combination of things. Having flowers and plants that complement each other is important.
Again, this goes back to the first point about planning. Avoid buying a lot of things just because you like the look of them. Make sure that they match everything else.
What’s the Takeaway Message?
The end result of landscape gardening can be rewarding.
Yet, at the same time, something that poorly planned and executed can be disastrous.
Follow these 5 tips and make your garden a place where you want to spend your time. Not standing in the window looking out with a horrified expression on your face.
