If you’re planning to upgrade your landscape this year, then now is a good time to get educated about the strategies for a smart landscape design that fits your needs. This year as you go about considering your options, be sure to start by reviewing these strategies so you can apply them within your property.
- Plan for access. You need to make sure mowers and other equipment can move about freely throughout the property.
- Set focal points. Determine where you want them to be placed. As you do this, consider their location when you plan their size so that they fit proportionately within the landscape.
- Keep it straight. Don’t get so caught up in curves and patterns that the landscape becomes jumbled and difficult to maintain.
- Remove the excess. If you’re mowing around trees, or climbing over rocks and overgrown shrubs, get rid of them. These obstructions are simply hindering the flow and functionality of your landscape.
