Tips and Tricks

Now let’s discuss some tips and tricks about landscaping

  1. Make a plan

Without a plan in mind, you won’t reap the advantages of landscaping. It’s better to have plans to utilize the land before the construction phase starts. If you can’t attain a plan yourself don’t hesitate to seek professional help. They can guide you through the possibility and limitation of the land.

  1. Approach your land plot wise

After finishing the plan, point out where you want to begin. Make a plot chart of your land according to the consideration it demands. Some part of the land might have structures to demolish. Or some other plot may demand a new structure to be built.

  1. Utilize the unwanted

The waste product such as barrel, bottle, tire etc. can be used for building structures or planting a tree. There are many ideas to convert plastic bags and bottles to make landscape fabric. With professional help, you can use such waste material to make a floor bed which keeps weeds away.

  1. Making walkways

Making walkways between a garden and lawn is an easy way to connect those plots. You can pave concrete step stones or colour bricks to make the way.  Rather than straight walkways try to make curved ones. Because the round edge makes more visual appeal than square blocks.

  1. Making structures

 Erecting structures in your lawn is a direct way to make a statement. A beautiful statue, fountain or even a big rock can steal the eye of your visitors. Making small ponds with plants around is an old but evergreen landscaping trick.

  1. Don’t forget the corners

For many houses corners of their compound are untouched. Bare corners will reduce the visual wideness of the ground. So make corners attractive by adding a private seating arrangement or built a mound there. The latter can be adorned with flowering plants or pebbles.

  1. Make a Garden

For years gardening acts as the synonym of landscaping for common people. It’s true that landscaping is incomplete without a beautiful garden. By combining structures and seating a flowering garden can be the primary focal point in the compound. Using big pots and climbing plants adds drama to a garden. Since garden demands frequent care, opt for low-maintenance plants. You can also try erecting structure right in the middle of a garden.

  1. Magic of illumination

Illumination can do wonder by enhancing the focal point inside the compound. Light add colours to the structures and increases the safety by illuminating sidewalks in the night.  Upward or downward light can add magic to trees and grass turf.
