Think about using some elements that are basic to design in your landscape plan. Many areas can benefit from having anchor plants. Different shrubs planted around the yard can help create a unified design. Balance can be created by planting in patterns. Different leaf textures on plants can help achieve variation. Don’t forget that walkways and paths need to be considered as well while landscaping. Avoid the ugly, concrete walkways that often come with homes. Spice things up by utilizing stepping stones in patterns or thin set pavers to enliven your landscaping. Pavers are as budget-friendly as concerete and come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so they can suit any look.
If you want to transform your yard, try re-edging your flower and rock beds using a soft, curved design. Curves are more updated and contemporary looking than straight lines and sharp corners. If you invest the time in putting new, curved edges on your plantings and flower beds, you may be surprised by the significant impact this affordable alteration can make.
