Landscaping any combination of your yard, garden and outdoor space might seem like a costly undertaking, but it doesn’t have to be. There are many cost-conscious ways to create a marvelous landscape that is all your own and within your budget. You just have to focus on the basics. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Maintain Natural Beauty
It’s easy to get caught up in design features such as walkways, a patio or an outdoor kitchen – all of which are wonderful investments. But, at the end of the day, plant health is the first and foremost contributor to a thriving lawn and garden. Give your plants, grass and flowers the care they need at all times, and you will be able to enjoy a thriving landscape year-round.
Mix and Match
Just like you don’t need to be a painter to experiment with color palettes and brush strokes, you don’t have to be a botanist to mix and match plants that you find appealing. This guide is a great resource to learn about the most popular plants and flowers in home gardening, including annuals, bulbs, evergreens, flowering trees and much more.
Embrace the Seasons
Each season brings a new opportunity to be creative. From fall annuals and winter plants to spring gardening and summer colors, there is never a dull season for a landscape enthusiast. Living in New Jersey makes seasonal landscaping even more rewarding, thanks to the pronounced changes from one season to the next. Just remember that the time to prepare for any given season is a few months prior, not when the calendar makes it official!
Set the Mood
The little details in a landscape–such as lighting and accents–can make a big difference in the way you, your family and your guests take in the sights and sounds. A landscape is not just something you see; it’s something you feel and connect with. Once you’ve established the foundational elements of your landscape, step back and ask yourself what you can do to add subtle flair and character.
