8 Tips for your next Landscaping Project

Here’s 8 things to consider before you start your next landscaping project

Words by Nurseryman

What are the key features you want to include? Think of hard landscaping elements as well as plantings

Measure your physical space, and the real-life size of those features – can you fit them all in?

How much time do you want to spend on garden maintenance? Use this to help decide what type of plants you want

Think of your neighbouring landscapes – is there something you need to conceal? Or a scenic view to the frame?

Will you use different spaces within the garden for different activities?

If you like deciduous trees and annuals/perennials, think about how your garden will look in winter

Paths need to have a purpose and should lead more or less directly to the intended destination

Have you checked your soil type? Clay, sandy, or loamy? Acidic or alkaline?
