Landscaping projects always start off with an air of excitement and the thrill that you’re building something that will be the talk of the neighborhood. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always turn out to be the case and here are some of the most common landscaping mistakes we see people make and how you can avoid them.
- Not planting properly. Make sure that you plant in areas where there is the proper amount of sunlight and enough room for your plants and trees to grow.
- Not thinking about the wildlife in the area. Plants and trees attract everything from hummingbirds to racoons, so you want to consider this when deciding what types of plants to put in the soil.
- Not considering maintenance. Sure, those plants look pretty on the shelf at the gardening center, but some plants are labor intensive and require constant attention to care for.
- Forgetting about lighting. If you plan to use your patios and garden areas at night, be sure that you have enough lights to highlight your splendid garden areas.
