Whether you’re looking to give your existing garden a revamp or you’re starting completely from scratch, redesigning your landscaping can be an overwhelming task at times. There are often important factors that need to be taken into consideration before you start planting.
Many will head straight to their local Bunnings and pick up whatever they like only to get their purchases home and realise it just doesn’t work the way you wanted it to. By creating a well thought out plan beforehand will help you create a landscaping solution that is best suited to your lifestyle.
We’ve listed a few of our favourite tips to take on board when trying to develop a landscaping plan that will see your garden looking beautifully cohesive.
Know Your Yard
Firstly, it is so important to think about your regional climate before planting anything. By understanding this, you will be able to look at plants that are perfect for your environment.
Think about the amount of sun exposure in the morning and afternoon, the wind and even underground lines or pipes.
Water draining in your yard is an area that should not be overlooked. The best landscape design will promote water movement away from home and guide it towards other areas of the yard.
Who Will Be using Your Yard?
Do you have children? Or Pets? Perhaps you do yoga outdoors in the morning, or you love to entertain. All of these things should be taken into consideration when planning out your new landscape in order to not only choose the right plants and design but to also ensure maximum enjoyment!
What Is Your Vision?
The best part about designing a new garden is watching your vision come to life! Start by listing all of the things you want in your yard and drawing up a rough sketch. This will help you when it comes to plant and feature selection.
Irrigation is such a great way to ensure that your garden is receiving all the hydration it needs, without the stress of having to remember to water it. Just set the daily timer and sit back and relax!
However, in order to make the most out of your irrigation system, it is important to ensure that it is installed and placed in places where your garden will benefit. There’s no point having it watering your pavers is there?
