Don’t be afraid to remove plants in your yard. There may be times when a plant things that just don’t mesh with the rest of your landscape. You can always relocate the plant to another spot or even give it to a friend.
It takes the same amount of preparation time to prepare your planting whether you’re seeding hundred square feet or just ten, so working in large groups will end up saving you time.
Use a variety of shapes, sizes and sizes when choosing plants for your yard. Use larger plants as anchors and arrange smaller plants around them in clusters. It is great to go with a theme just as long as you have plenty of contrast to make it nice looking.
Use plants for creating natural privacy screens around the property or property. Use evergreens and other large plants to act as a wall against those nosy neighbors if you wish to create a privacy screen within the garden.
You don’t have to be a professional to landscape. You could make your yard look good as long as you are dedicated and if you are doing things the right way. Your accomplishments will have all your neighbors looking at your yard enviously. This is what you should strive for!
