You love your yard. It is your sanctuary; an extension of your interior home and a place where you can go to enjoy nature and maybe get your hands dirty. But sometimes, as a weekend warrior, your propensity for digging and planting doesn’t always match your ability to make your yard “flow”.
All yards aren’t created equal, and people’s tastes regarding what looks good and what doesn’t differ greatly. There are a few simple tips you can follow to ensure that your yard flows, which will create an even more inviting for you and your guests. Turf Medic’s team is always here for guidance and will work hand-in-hand with you to meet your landscape needs.
Consider Your Yard First
What kind of space are you working with? Is there a plethora of direct sunlight or does your yard deliver ample amounts of shade? Once you have answers to some key questions then you can dive into the types of plants that will suit your lawn best. Try planting some Foxgloves or Coral Bells for shadier lawns. If you get full sun then Butterfly Weed and Lavendar will suit you best.
Understanding the canvas to which you will be working can save you time, money, and your sanity. Our experts at Turf Medic can take the burden off of you so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the finished product.
Start With A Plan
Understanding the 1,000-foot view of your yard will allow you to decide which plants will help you reach your end goal. Are you a low-maintenance gardener looking for perennials to plant and reap its benefits year in and year out or are you up to the challenge of an oasis that requires some attention?
Another element to consider is functionality. Whether you seek a relaxing backyard sanctuary or if your life needs part curb appeal and part football field for your kids, there is a design out there for you. Your final product will set the tone for the design and implementation of your landscape. A professional’s touch could be the difference between good and great.
Mind Your Lines!
Take a look at your existing yard. Have imaginary lines formed based on the direction of your house, deck, or plants that are already present? Use those lines to your advantage aligning your landscaping with them for a more organized space. Maybe a walkway exists to an outdoor shed or tree. Add to its beauty with some perennials that will continue to compliment the space year after year.
The bottom line is if you go against the grain in your yard, you may disrupt the pre-existing highlights.
