Landscape planning is essential for getting the landscape you want as well as getting a landscape that’s easy to maintain and take care of. The following ideas will help you plan things out so that your landscape looks beautiful season after season.
Start by creating a grid. Measure your landscape out and start plotting where you want to place everything from trees to shrubs, and flower beds to walkways. The grid you create is effectively a map that will help you keep things scaled appropriately so that your landscape looks its absolute best.
As you sketch your landscape out, move things around until you’re satisfied that all the elements fit together the way you want them to. Once you’re satisfied that everything is in the right space and in the right scale, use your map to guide the landscaping team as they begin the installation. Above all, remember to remain flexible as the work begins; as they say, it might look good on paper, but it may not work so well in practice.
