The design of your new home and its yard is an exciting prospect you can take on as a new homeowner. Whether you hire a professional landscaping service or complete the work yourself, you can place the specific details and features in your yard to make it a great outdoor oasis for your spare time. The following provides you with some tips to help in the installation of your yard's new landscaping.

Plan Around Permanent Features

When you are planning out your new landscaping placement, you will need to start out by making a map of your yard and its surrounding features. Make a grid map on a piece of paper with the permanent details of your yard so you can decide where to plant specific types of vegetation. 

Mark out features on the map, such as your home, patio pavement, the fence line, the driveway, garage, and any septic system that is installed within your yard. A septic system will have specific limitations on the type of vegetation you can plant above it, especially the drain field, so make sure you mark this out. Then, if you know where your home's utility lines are buried or where the home's sewer connection is, designate these on your map so you can protect them from any future tree root damage.

List What You Want

Another important detail to the installation of your new yard is to make a list of what you want in the yard. You most likely have many specific types of vegetation, trees, shrubbery, and flowers that you want to add to your yard to make it your own. For example, you may want a rose garden, springtime tulips and other bulbs to sprout up, or a row of maple trees that will provide shade to your backyard from the hot summer sun. Make a list of all the specific types of vegetation you want so you can cross them off as you add them to your landscaping plan. 

As you are planning the placement of each yard element, be sure to consider how it will affect the layout and structure of your yard. Look at how it will look from the street in addition to any kind of problems it may cause to your home. For example, if you want to plant several trees in your yard, space them away from your home so they have room to grow to a mature height without causing damage to your home exterior, roof, or foundation.

About Me
Technology Makes Landscaping Easier Than Ever

When I was young, I loved helping my mother in the garden. Our yard was filled with plants and flowers that she kept in immaculate condition. Once I was an adult and bought my first home, I learned that there was much more to landscaping a yard than I ever imagined! After a little trial and error planting a few flowers in my yard that died quickly, I realized the technology that is available to aspiring gardeners makes trial and error a thing of the past. After I found out what my "hardiness zone" was, I realized I was planting flowers made for much cooler climates, and I played around with software that let me design my yard very easily! I learned a lot throughout the experience, so I thought I would share my tips with everyone who needs them. Come back often to check out my new tips!
