What to Do with Your Yard


 
Gardening
When designing your yard's landscape in Greenville, SC, there are lots of different considerations to keep in mind. First of all, you will be thinking about what you want your yard to look like. Putting the aesthetic considerations front and center is natural: Everybody wants their yard to be a beautiful addition to their property overall. But there are other aspects of your yard's composition that will balance out the issue of beauty. Plants and trees need water and sunlight to grow and thrive. If either of these are in short supply because of your location, you will need to modify the plants and trees you'd like to include in your yard. If you are fond of a particular type of plant, you'll revolve your landscape design around making sure this plant will be front and center. Maybe you are happiest when your property is low-maintenance. Designing a yard to be as little work as possible is another way to ensure your yard keeps you happy!

A Mix of Shrubs, Flowers, and Lawn

The most common type of yard in most of the country's suburbs is a healthy mix of lawn and plants. Lawns are great areas for picnics and playing sports. However, by themselves they aren't much to look at. Most people add flower beds and shrubs around the perimeter to make the lawn look more decorative and varied. You can add flower beds to your yard by putting in pieces of concrete that will delineate where your plants are going to be placed.

When talking to a landscaper about this type of mixed yard, tell her or him what type of colors and textures you prefer. Smaller plants don't use water, but if you've decided not to focus too much on trees to conserve H2O, you will be limited to plants that don't mind getting a lot of sun, unless you're planting against the shade of your house. These are the types of things you can consider and talk to a landscaping professional about before planting your yard.

Tree- and Shrub-Focused Yards

If you're not so much into flowers or low-lying plants like ground cover, you'll be more interested in a yard that focuses on bigger trees and bushes. There are lots of homeowners who like having trees to shade their property and make their houses cooler. Larger bushes can also produce flowers once a year, like magnolia bushes or hydrangea. Larger plants like these will provide great habitats for small animals like squirrels or song birds. If you want to start seeing more fauna in your area, creating a yard with protection for them is a good start.

Using Less Water with Xeriscaping

Another landscaping priority is saving water. Incorporating plants that don't need a lot of water can save you on your water bills each month. This can also help your local environment if the state you live on is running short on its water supplies, like California. There are numerous experts in xeriscaping landscape in Greenville, SC, or in the city where you live. You can begin by placing rocks and gravel in beds instead of flowers. The more of these rocky beds you place in your yard, the less thirsty lawns you will need to contend with. Substituting lavender and sage for plants that need more water, like roses, can reduce the amount of water that you need to spray onto your property. You can also use hardy trees like spruce, juniper, or cypress to give you shade without all the need for gallons of water per day. These trees are hardwoods that are drought-resistant.
