Landscaping Design on Your Property in NJ and PA

Landscaping design can be a fun and exciting project for homeowners, but it's important to remember some basic rules when starting out. Here are some of the most important considerations in landscaping design. Observing these points will help you create a beautiful and functional landscape that you and your family can enjoy for years to come!

Scale Your Yard or Lawn

One of the most important things to keep in mind is scale when it comes to landscaping design. This refers to the size of the elements in your landscape relative to each other and to the overall size of your property. For example, if you have a small yard, you'll want to use smaller plants and features so that they don't overwhelm the space. Conversely, if you have a large yard, you can use larger plants and features to fill the space. The key is to create a balanced look that is proportionate to the size of your property.

Aspect - Where Is The Sun?

Another important factor to consider in your landscaping design is the aspect. This refers to the orientation of your property relative to the sun. For example, if your property is in a sunny location, you'll want to use plants that thrive in full sun. Conversely, if your property is in a shady location, you'll want to use plants that tolerate or prefer shade. Consider the amount of sun and shade your property receives when choosing plants for your landscape.

Your Soil Type

The type of soil you have on your property will also impact your landscaping design. Different plants prefer different types of soil, so it's important to choose plants that will thrive in the soil you have. If you're not sure what type of soil you have, a quick trip to your local nursery or garden center can help you out. They can test your soil and recommend plants that will do well in it.

Your Property's Topography

The topography of your property, or the shape of the land, will also impact your landscaping design. If you have a flat property, you'll have more options for your landscape than if you have a hilly property. If you have a hilly property, you'll want to use plants that are tolerant of slopes and erosion. When considering the topography of your property, think about how it will impact the placement of plants and features in your landscape.
