Tips for Landscaping Your Property

Whether you hire someone to landscape you home or do it yourself, here are some things to keep in mind.

First, make a plan. Design your yard to maximize your enjoyment and for curb appeal. When designing, determine the sun and shade patterns of your yard and always lay out your plantings based on how large they will be when they are full grown.

If you need a new driveway, sidewalks, or patio, it is always best to complete those projects before beginning any landscaping.

Be safe before you dig by checking with Diggers Hotline.

Verify property boundaries to make sure that you are not violating your neighbor’s space over the property line.

Check your soil by taking soil samples to a local agricultural agency for testing to find out if any nutrients are lacking.

Lastly, address any current or future irrigation issues and develop a regular maintenance plan.

You don’t have to spend a fortune to have outstanding landscaping. Carefully selecting plantings and placing them properly will provide you with many years of enjoyment.
