Oklahoma City, OK – March 12, 2017. The birds start chirping, the first flowers begin to bloom and everything turns green again – spring is here! As soon as the sun shines its warm light upon you, you might want to enjoy some time in your yard or garden. But does it look nice and tidy? Lush and lively? Probably not. That’s why spring is the perfect time to get your yard in order, bring out the best of it and make it look alive and inviting.
Before you think to yourself “Let’s do this!” and just start working, you might want to wait a bit and plan ahead. Unless you are experienced in landscape design and installation, it’s best to get some help of a professional. Having someone look over your garden and help you with a concept and design is invaluable – you can’t have a nice yard with a bad design. Just some small touches can make a world of a difference.
Also, get some recommendations for plants and materials for your garden. There’s lots of options what to plant and what to use for retaining walls, floors or walkways. A professional landscape designer will easily see what kind of flowers you can plant in your garden and how you can combine them for pleasing aesthetics.
“But a professional landscape designer sounds expensive!”
Well, worry not! Local landscaping services are often more affordable than you might think! And if you brainstorm some ideas before, the process of designing your yard can be quick and easy! When you find the right contractors, they will take good care of the entire project, so it all goes well.
How to create your own landscape design
Yes, I said you should get help from a professional. But you should know what YOU want, first!
Take a look at your neighbors’ yards. Find anything you like? Take notes!
Walk through your own yard and try to imagine what your ideas would look like.
Draw a to-scale map of your yard and roughly draw in the features you imagined. Does it still look good?
Think about requirements – do you spend a lot of time outside? Do you have a dog? Do you want space for the kids to play?
Write all of that down, and you’re ready to design your landscape that will make you happy for years to come!
