Jim from Heath Landscapes gave some tips on proper landscaping and how the project should be done in order to retain the primary purpose of the backyard space. The backyard has proven time and time again that it is one of the most important part of a home. It serves as a place where one can retreat, where kids could play their hearts out, where pets could have enough space to run around and other endless use. One factor that should be considered is the climate where you are residing because it will dictate the kinds of shrubs and flowers that will thrive in that kind of weather. Here are some landscaping tips to keep in mind:
– Hire a landscape professional because they know more about the local climate and how to adapt the design depending on the need of the environment. Hiring a professional will not only save you time but it will also unburden you from the stress of planning from beginning until the end. This set up is more ideal for those who are busy with work or is busy with kids and household chores.
– Before deciding on what plants and flowers to put in your backyard, remember that some plants will require daily care and maintenance. If you have a busy schedule or is always away for a few days or more then make sure you choose plants that are low maintenance and could thrive on its own for a few days. Don’t forget to inquire as well on how big the plant is when it fully matures as the size may not be suitable when it reach full size.
– Make sure that the backyard is as good looking as the inside of the property. It will be easier to find buyers when time comes you need to sell the house.
– Make sure that you always check for growth of weeds as they can be very persistent once they start to grow. Never let them grow anywhere near your garden space. Dandelions are also considered as problematic as weeds and must be prevented from growing.
