Winter is has begun and another year has come and gone. In the start of the growing season a lot of us make new years resolutions with the intent of reaching a goal or finishing a task. For that homeowner this resolution might be as easy as upgrading features within their yard or facing the task of creating their landscape from scratch. The time to start the design process is now, as the spring season will be upon us quickly.
A properly planned design may help accelerate and simplify your landscape project once the time arrives. To start the look process it’s important to possess or produce a sketch from the area being done. For larger projects, it is important that you have the overall site plan of the property. This will help you to get a drawing from the project site you’re focusing on. Don’t forget to indicate directions on your map. By placing a north arrow on your map will help identify planting zones.
Once you have defined the project with a sketch, the fun can begin. The first step is knowing what you want and understanding the area you are working with. Every climate has it’s own wonderful selection of plants. Checking with local nurseries will help you to choose the best plants for your climate region. Begin drawing on your plan once you have selected a style or theme to incorporate into your yard.
Whichever method you select take time to enjoy the design process and find out more about the plants being placed on your lawn.
