How to Landscape your Garden?
Garden landscaping is an art, and it is not only for persons who have green thumbs. It makes our personal exterior space pleasing and refreshing in the eyes. Plus, having greeneries in our front yard or back yard produces fresh air that cools our place, and at the same time, it filters pollutants around us.
It's not hard to put up a landscape design that will fit your yard as long as you are willing to lay effort, time, and budget to attain your dream garden.
To help you create and layout your very own design, here are five tips on how to start landscaping your garden:
Tip # 1 - Know the size of your yard
It is essential for you to know your lot's size, especially if you have plans on placing a decorative stone or boulder in your yard. Learning the size of your lot will help you determine the right amount of plants, decorative rocks/boulders, garden sculptures, and other aesthetic elements that will perfectly fit in your yard.
Tip # 2 - Set your budget
Now, this might be a crucial part. Having a lovely garden needs a generous budget. It is an investment which will stay for many, many years. But it doesn't mean that it should always fall on that part. You can still achieve a beautiful garden by awakening the do-it-yourself creative skills within you. Resourcefulness is also a key in winning a pretty garden layout. For example, you have an old half tree trunk in your storage; you can recreate it into a lovely garden bench. It will give you a more natural feel without spending that much.
Tip # 3 - Be a plant parent
Yes! Be a plant parent. Knowing your plants would be beneficial in choosing what kind of plants you would want to have in your garden. You can choose from different ornamental plants, medicinal plants, edible plants, and decorative plants.
Tip # 4 - Create your design
After researching and learning the essential factors in landscaping your garden, you can now sketch a simple layout of your dream garden. Contact your plant suppliers and landscape element suppliers. Hire your trusted gardeners to help you shape up your garden. Prepare the tools and start creating the landscape of your desire!
Bonus Tip - Consult an Expert
To make everything more precise and art-wise, you can consult a professional Landscape Designer or a Landscape architect to help you develop your dream garden. They will help you achieve the design you wanted, which matches your preferred budget. Plus, they can also show you a lot of options in landscaping your very own garden.
