Posted April 5, 2016 by salllandscape

Landscaping and gardening requires a lot of patience, start small and let it be a work-in-progress – wait for your plants to grow and fill up the empty space.

Imagine a lush, green space where you can relax with family, entertain friends or simply enjoy nature... a beautifully landscaped garden is every home owner’s dream. While it may not always be possible to have a professionally designed landscaped garden there is always room to create a lush space in your front or backyard. A thoughtfully designed yard not only looks beautiful, it also adds value to your property.

Read on for tips to get you started on your gardening adventure.

The first step of landscaping and gardening is to decide how you would like to use the yard space. List out your needs taking into account the availability of space. Do your kids need a play area? Would you like to entertain outdoors? Or would you like a vegetable patch to grow your own herbs and veggies? Create your lush space accordingly.

A small backyard might not allow you to build a patio, but it is easy enough to cover the patch with a lawn. Small flowering plants with Garden Rocks at the borders will create a lush space. Depending on the area, you could also have tall, leafy plants against the fencing or wall creating a screen of sorts that affords some privacy.

With a large backyard space, it is easy to create a green sanctuary. Plan a patio or sitting area taking into account the sun direction in different seasons. Adding a lawn area gives the feel of lush greenery while flowering plants give a different dimension to your yard.

If you don’t have a front yard to speak of but just a little space between the street and your home, make the most of it. Put up a low fence bordering the street and plant flowering shrubs in the space between. Perennial flowering shrubs are a great way to add a splash of colour at your house entrance.

Consider a focal point for your landscaped back or front yard. It could be a beautiful sculpture or a fountain or a lily pond. It could even be a big leafy tree or a group of flowering plants that stand out and hold interest.

Landscaping your garden need not be a complicated affair. Fill up your front or backyard with a variety of plants to create a lush space. Plants may be of different types – flowers of different colors not only add to the appeal of your garden but they also attract butterflies, which is a rare treat.
