Creating a new landscape design is exciting because you get to alter the landscape, making it the space you’ve always wanted. Whether you’re interested in building a koi pond or designing a patio, it’s important that you first think about the layout and everything that will be affecting it before starting. Here are four recommendations to consider if you’re redesigning your landscape.
1. Address the Current Landscape
Make sure you examine the current landscape for issues you want to fix. This might include pulling weeds, planting grass in bare spots, repairing uneven land, cleaning a koi pond, or addressing water drainage areas. A landscaping company, such as Backyard Depot, can help you identify any land issues you may have overlooked. During this process, you should also decide if there is anything you want to keep the same.
2. Decide How You Want To Use the Space
What reasons do you have for altering the landscape? Do you intend on entertaining guests on a patio, relaxing by a pool, or taking in the sights and sounds of nature while hanging out by a koi pond? Knowing what you want to use the space for will help you determine the spatial layout and what products you’ll need.
3. Figure Out a Landscaping Budget
It’s imperative to have a landscaping service give you a price estimate on your redesign so you know where you stand financially. You can invest in the entire landscape design process if you have the available funds or the ability to get a loan. However, if necessary, you can break the project into smaller, more financially feasible steps.
4. Pick Plants That Will Thrive
Before making any final plant decisions, talk to a landscaping expert about which shrubs look good and prosper in Northeast Oklahoma. It would help if you also had a layout in mind to ensure that the plants that need the most sunlight won’t be in shady areas and vice versa. Try planting shrubs that differ in shape, size, and color to create a diverse and visually appealing layout.
