In an attempt to improve their yard space, some homeowners plant a few flowers while others try to take on big landscaping projects by themselves. Though they may have good intentions for beautifying their yards, their efforts can sometimes be counterproductive. A beautiful, harmonious, yard space is achieved by strategic landscape design.
The expert landscapers at A to Z Property Maintenance of Brookfield, CT, share a few landscape design tips that can dramatically upgrade your yard space.
- Establish A Plan: It's important to plan what types of plant you want for your garden and where to plant them. Proper spacing of plants will prevent fungus and insect infestation in your yard. If there are bare spaces, plant annuals, perennials, and shrubs. They're easy to transplant and remove if you realize they're planted in the wrong spot.
- Determine Your Focal Point: A great landscape design has a focal point, an area which will draw your attention. It could be a statue, an ornamental plant, an old tree, or your house. Keep in mind that your focal point should offer something unique so that it stands out from the rest of your landscape.
- Add Life To Your Garden: Make your landscape more interesting by planting different shrubs, grass or fruit-bearing trees. Play with color, size, and shape but don't overdo it. You may want to repeat some elements or design to maintain cohesion. The trick is to add in some unique elements in your landscape to make it livelier and more interesting.
