4 Tips for Planning a Landscaping Project

Published on: November 27, 2017

Planning and preparation is crucial for ensuring your landscape project turns out the way you envision. Whether you are adding a hardscape like a retaining wall or patio, or softscapes like flower gardens or privacy trees, you want to start with a solid landscape design. Here are four tips to plan your next landscaping project to get results that will match your vision and stay within your budget.

  1. Make sure your vision does not overpower your yard. If you are adding a garden or structure, outline the area and consider how it will impact the rest of your yard. Sometimes smaller is better; you don’t want to crowd your outdoor space.
  2. Matching your existing landscaping. You want additions to blend with your existing landscaping. Unless you are planning a completely new landscape design, make sure your new project will match your outdoor style and home.
  3. Realistic budget expectations. Before starting any landscaping project, it is important to decide what you want to spend. However, you need to be realistic. Sure, you can save money by doing the work yourself, but you may not get the results you desire. Get a quote on a professional installation and determine whether that is the best option over saving money.
  4. A beautiful rose garden, garden pond with waterfall, or sculpted hedge may sound appealing, but they do require extensive maintenance. Consider the long-term commitments to your landscaping projects; you may need to hire a regular landscaping service to help you maintain your new landscape design.

Using a professional landscaper to help you plan, design and install your new landscape project can help avoid many of the pitfalls. Consider consulting a professional to get the results you want for your new landscape project.
