Introduction

Whether you are planning on starting your own landscaping business or you just want to learn to landscape your own home like a professional, this guide is for you.  I will be writing it from the standpoint of you as the homeowner doing your own landscaping.  After all, even if you are landscaping other’s yards, if you treat it as your own, you’re most certainly going to do the best job possible for your clients.  Let’s get started!

What Is Landscaping

While a lot of people have already come across the word landscaping, not a lot of them actually know what the term stands for. This article is tailored for those who want to learn about landscaping but don't know where to begin.

For starters, landscaping is the modification of a landscape such as a lawn to make it more aesthetically pleasing or to make it more functional.

A lot of homeowners landscape their homes primarily because they want to make their surroundings more attractive. But more than that, a landscaped house usually has a higher real estate value than one that isn't.

People who want to have their properties landscaped usually acquire the services of professionals. Landscaping is a time and labor-intensive task, so in order to do that in no time at all, homeowners invest in landscaping services to turn their vision into reality.

But there are also those who want to take a hands-on approach to landscaping. Again, this is a task that requires a lot of time and energy on the part of the homeowner so the results may not be visible immediately.

A well-landscaped property is one that is well-planned and the plans should also be well-executed. However, the great thing about going through all this trouble is that it brings a great feeling of self-fulfillment to the homeowner after performing such a difficult task.

Depending on what the homeowner wants, the landscape design could be simple or complex. Simple ones make for easy maintenance while complex ones make for a lot of room for trees and flowers.

Home Landscaping

Here are some do-it-yourself tips to landscape your lawn: First, clear the general area that you will be designing and start from scratch. This will give you a better canvass to work with. Then, sketch the general look that you would like to have for your garden. Make a list of the plants, trees and shrubs that you can plant. When deciding on the type of plants, make sure that there will be a plant which will flower or bloom for each season of the year – winter, spring, summer and fall. For example, perennial flowers will bloom in May, but after that it will just look like an ordinary plant. Having a plant which blooms in a different time of the year would make your garden have a focal point even when other plant variants are not in season.

As much as possible, make a layered planting bed. At the back row which is the farthest
