What to Think About Before Planning Your Landscaping Project

Yard Details 

concreteBefore buying any plants or trees, learn about your local climate and soil type, and research which greenery thrives best in your garden. Plot out where shade is plentiful, and which areas receive the most sun. Once you have these details, purchase the correct plants for your space and organize them based on the information you gather.


Consider who will be using the yard most. Do you have children and pets? Do you want to host regular outdoor gatherings? Knowing who will frequent the space will allow you to better strategize planting, concrete and stone placement, as well as play and patio areas. If you have animals and children to protect, you should also plan for fencing and pool safety barriers.

Organize the Area

Designate areas for eating, grilling, lounging, and planting vegetables, as well as the location of pools and walkways. Think about how you will define these areas and if you should use fencing, natural barriers, or a combination of the two. Also, decide if you want to add stone walls and other hardscaping structures to divide the space. Whatever you envision, plot out a basic blueprint before beginning work.


Establish your budget before agreeing to any purchases. Be realistic about your needs and what you can afford. Don’t forget to include maintenance plans in your budget. Landscaping needs regular care to stay clean, safe, and visually appealing.
