Tips for Landscape Beginners
Landscaping your yard, especially if you are a beginner, can feel like an overwhelming task. But if you think of your outdoor space as an interior room, the process can feel a bit easier. Here are some landscape tips for beginners.
The first thing you need to think about is what you need and what you want. If you have small children, do you want a lot of green space? Or, do you want a pleasant patio for entertaining? Once you determine what your priorities are, your plan will come together.
Determine what plants will thrive and what plants will die on your landscape
The next thing you want to examine is the sun. Or rather, how the sun shines on your outdoor space. Is it mostly shady? Or is it full sun? These questions can help you determine what plants will thrive and what plants will die. It can also help you decide where to place spots that you expect to spend a lot of time in your landscaping project. If you want to put a dining table in a place that has a lot of late afternoon sun, it will not be an enjoyable spot to eat.
The last tip is to take it slow. Your yard does not to be completed in a day. Take the time to get it done right.
