4 Strategies for Developing Your Landscaping Design, Honolulu, Hawaii

Whether you’re building a new home or getting ready for an exterior face-lift, Sherwood’s Tree Service in Honolulu, HI, recommends planning your landscaping design carefully. With over 40 years of experience with design and maintenance, this family-owned and -operated company knows how to ensure your residential and commercial properties are both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Strategies for Planning a Landscaping Design

1. Chart Access Points 

Entry points for maintenance and leisure are a central part of landscape design. Consider where you would like to direct your family out into your yard, be it through a gate or down a pathway. If you’re installing a fence, then don’t forget to make an access point for landscaping equipment.

2. Identify a Focus

A homogeneous yard can get boring, but a dynamic landscaping design can create texture and beauty. In your front and backyard, identify a focal point. This could be a fountain or waterfall, or perhaps an island with flowers and trees.

3. Complement Your Home

landscapingLandscaping designs should always complement the color and style of your home. Talk with your landscaping contractor about the materials and tones found on your exterior, and find out which landscaping materials would match.

4. Choose Plants Wisely

The trees, plants and flowers that you place on your lawn should be appropriate for your climate. Including tropical or exotic plants may seem like a good idea, but you’ll only end up paying the price when they die off. When planting species, make sure that you’re not overcrowding flower beds or placing a low-hanging tree too close to your house or car.

By following this landscaping contractor’s advice, you can guarantee that your design looks great and is easy to maintain. For landscaping ideas or to schedule tree services, call Sherwood’s Tree Service at (808) 537-9705 or visit them online today.
