Whether you’re starting from scratch or fixing up your existing landscaping because you’re selling a home in Uptown Charlotte, Mint Hill, South Park, or Ballantyne, there’s always plenty to do. If you’re opting to do it yourself, taking on tasks such as clean-up, planning, and planting can sometimes be challenging… and they’re time consuming.
If you’re ready to spruce up your yard, these landscaping tips from the pros will help you start off on the right foot.
Don’t Skimp on Tools
Purchasing high quality tools may be costly up front, but they’ll pay off tenfold. You’ll get good mileage out of them and eliminate the need for annual purchases; saving you time and money.
There are a variety of garden tools that will make your planting job easier. From simple hand trowels to rototillers, you’ll want to invest in the best. You’ll also need tools such as pruning shears and a rake to keep your design maintained.
Draw It Out
Preparing your landscape on a whim may cause unnecessary expenses, as well as leave your yard in disarray. Putting your vision on paper can help you create a design that flows. You don’t have to be an artist to sketch a map and construct your layout.
If you’re starting from scratch, make note of how you’d like your garden beds to look through each season, and decide if you’ll use rock or mulch. Don’t forget to measure your area, so you purchase the correct amount of supplies.
You can refresh your existing garden by cleaning up debris and changing up your annuals. If you have perennials, make sure you coordinate annual colors that are pleasing to the eye.
Schedule Maintenance and Upkeep
Since you’ve done all this planning and preparing, you’re probably in charge of maintaining your property. Adding weekly tasks such as pruning and pulling weeds to your calendar will prevent your to-dos from piling up. You’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of your masterpiece without feeling overwhelmed.
