Now that the sun is back and all the snow is gone for good, it’s time to start working on your outdoor space! Before you host summer parties and backyard barbecues, you should spruce up your yard using the many principles of landscape design. Before you call the landscapers to get all of the work done for you, you should have a rough idea of what you want to include in your yard. Truly, the possibilities are endless when it comes to adding to your yard.
From bridges to ponds to cobblestone paths, you can put as many elements in your yard as you wish. However, to help you avoid attractive mistakes, this video gives some basic guidelines of landscape design.
First of all, you should map out any goals you have for your outdoor space. Open grassy areas, decks, and patios all fall under things you can add to your yard, so be creative! Next, make a general sketch of your property from a bird’s eye view. Start out by adding the biggest things you want to add, then work to the smaller plants and details. This way, you won’t run out of room before you reach your final design. Be sure to look up plants and get a second opinion on your design as well.
