Landscaping 101...Where to Begin?

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR632450000

Just moved in? What do to first? The landscaping needs something. But what? Shall I head to Home Depot and start buying shrubs and drip irrigation? Maybe I should map out a new retaining wall or put in a pond or af fountain?

What is the very first thing that I should do?

House Logic says, DO NOTHING!

You can learn a lot by DOING NOTHING

 

Sit down, sip some iced tea, watch the grass grow and observe. You can learn a lot by doing nothing.

"The excitement of buying a new home, plus a stretch of warm spring weather, often creates a passion for yard work. But don't just do something, stand there! What looks like a spring weed might be a fall-blooming vine; that bare spot in March might reveal tulips in April.

Try this instead: Live with your land for a year. Observe how many hours of sunlight each part of your garden gets. Test the pH of your soil to determine if acid-loving or alkaline-loving plants will be happy in that particular patch of heaven. Observe when your lawn greens up in spring and becomes dormant in late summer.

The money and time you save by watching and waiting will be your own."


You can accomplish a lot by doing nothing.

Hi Jeffrey,  great tip that I doubt many follow.  Usuallyh they have a pre-determined mindset on what they want done.
