Here, for example, I love how the planting bed offers a big chartreuse burst from a golden creeping Jenny mass (Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’). It is contrasted (in color and texture) by a plantation of bread fescue (Festuca ‘Elijah Blue’). It’s easy to create a melee look when planting if you’re trying to plant one of everything. I get it right with this gardening idea: Re-use the same colors, shapes or varieties of plants in plantations.
Do not sow too much! Too many trees and shrubs near the house can cause moisture problems that cause mildew, mildew and high humidity. The wind and the sun should periodically dry the area around the house. Shading a house can result in higher energy bills and maintenance bills because lights need to be used more often and an air conditioner can be created. necessary to control the humidity.

The budget should always be kept in mind, as the installation costs of various landscaping features can vary considerably. If shade is needed for a patio, the cheapest is to plant a shade tree and wait for several years. At a higher cost, a tree can be installed for instant shade. A large upright umbrella can be bought at a modest cost. If the design provides for a grassy play area, a lawn can be started from seed in the fall or spring (depending on the lawn selected), and you can wait a season for that she is ready for the job. For faster results, you can choose the most expensive turf option, allowing the grass to be ready for use much sooner.

I was always scared to start because I realized how inexperienced and badly prepared I am. But now you give me the inspiration and the basics to start doing it! Thank you very much! You make an excellent point to ensure that if you plan to add a pool to your yard in the future, you should include it in your current landscaping plans. I would like to have my own pool one day since I trained for triathlons. It may be important to plan your landscaping to enhance your pool so that your garden does not feel cut. Thanks for your advice. I will keep them in mind when I build my pool one day.
Residential landscapes are part of a larger landscape and an ecological community. When we design a landscape that respects the environment, we protect the natural elements of the site and treat the landscape as a living system. We plan to reduce inputs of energy, water and materials and avoid the use of toxic or forbidden materials. The following environmentally friendly design techniques and considerations are based on the enhancement of ecosystem services in the landscape. Traditional landscaping often incorporates the removal of all off-site water as quickly as possible. In an ecological design, water is not treated as a waste to capture and transport off-site.
After first communicating with them and starting to play the phone, I never heard from them, even though I extended my hand a few more times during several weeks. I’m not sure if my job was too small, they were too busy, or I just fell through the cracks? I was a little disappointed because of their good reviews. I wish I could give this company 10 stars. We found them on Yelp … you never know … but they had great reviews and we decided to give them a shot. Ryan – the owner – was extremely accommodating. We had never done professional landscaping and did not know what to expect.
It is a wonderful help, thank you! I am a total starter here, so when I came across your blog on PINTEREST, I could not wait to dive 🙂 I have a stupid question, I live in what we call a raised ranch its unique story with a high ceiling basement, So when you enter the front door, you have to climb 6 steps .. so high at home. I totally agree that the beds are 30-50% of the height of the wall. However, my side yard, where I look like a bed is incredibly narrow, and I can tell you now that I would be prohibited from planting something with height (like a tree) butted against the house. HELP ME. PS the area is totally bare, it is connected to two neighbors back, no fences and no landscaping.
