A landscaping project is as exciting as it is complex work. When done right, it will benefit your entire household from curb appeal to energy efficiency. As such, it’s important that your landscaping goals are more than just establishing looks.
E and L Lawn Care discuss what should be the main considerations on your next landscaping project.
Preventing Soil Erosion
While soil erosion isn’t as frequent as other landscaping issues, it’s a problem that can easily get out of hand if you fail to watch out for it. The damage it can cause ranges from ruining your garden to affecting the stability of the house foundation.
Thankfully, soil erosion is quite easy to address as all you need to do is keep the soil covered year-round. Soil that’s bare or in patches is more vulnerable to wind and rain. Adding mulch can address these sensitive areas and help increase moisture retention.
As for the grass and plants, it’s a good idea to look at the native greenery as it will provide the soul with more stability. Keep your native plants in mind when you’re planning to do flower bed planting.
Your backyard is an extension of your house, so it makes sense that one of your main goals is to establish what kind of amenities will fill the space. Your landscape should reflect and adhere to the architectural style of your home so that there’s unity in design.
You’ll also want to determine what level of privacy your backyard will have. Too much will make your exterior space too cramped and negates the whole point of an outdoor space. We recommend taking a natural approach to privacy by using obscure plants and foliages. Hedges are the quintessential green fencing option, but you can also use the usual wood fences.
