Mistakes Made With Home Garden Designs

Some of the most common mistakes regarding garden designs are shared below. Rather than also making these mistakes related to home garden designs, save money by getting in help from experts such as LawnSafe to help you develop and maintain a well balanced and attractive lawn and garden.

No Planning

Homeowners often just plant trees, lawn and shrubs without consideration of the overall garden. It is perhaps one of the most common mistakes made with garden designs. Some plants simply don’t grow in shade, and some grass also not. Not having enough drainage or hardscaping without consideration for drainage requirements can also be a costly mistake. As such plan the whole landscape and do a bit of research first. If you need help simply contact the experts of LawnSafe for assistance.

Planting Lawn Without Proper Soil Preparation

If you do it wrong at the beginning, you will have problems with the lawn for a long time to come. Soil preparation is essential when establishing the lawn. First test the soil pH and fertility levels and determine which type of soil it is. This will influence drainage and watering. As such get in the help of lawn experts to help you properly prepare the soil before planting the first grass shoot.

Not Considering The Grass Types Suitable For The Region

Note that not all grass types are the same. You need to plant the correct grass for the particular climate region if you want to minimize maintenance at the end of the day. Once again, call in the help of experts such as LawnSafe to help you establish the lawn or for advice regarding the correct grass types and the planting thereof.

Not Considering Seasons

Many home garden designs are done without consideration of the various seasons. If you want a stunning and low maintenance garden throughout the year, you have to plan one that will still look amazing in the winter while not being overly active in the summer.
