Garden Design 101

Having a garden is not only a relaxing hobby but can perform wonders for curb appeal. Before you begin planting, many considerations and decisions should be made. When choosing the layout, you should decide how your yard will be used and which focal points you wish to accentuate. Plants should be chosen based on the geographical area, size requirements, and the type of colors your garden needs. From a design perspective, plants should be aesthetically pleasing with one another and grouped together for a harmonious look. Before planting a garden, decide on a look and research which layout and plants best meet your needs.
