Make sure to come up with a thorough plan in advance before you begin landscaping your garden. It's really a great idea to create a sketch for your landscape design work in the planning stage to receive a proper mental idea on what it will appear like. Make notes of the plants, bushes, flowers, shrubs, etc that you plan on using in order to elevate your current landscape designs.
In landscaping design, variation of the plants and flowers is a vital matter. You shouldn't place too much of a similar plants and flowers within your lawn except in cases where it actually is a kind of vegetation which may resist many kind of weather conditions. Once you place the same type of plants all over the yard and then they die in the off season you'll end up left with a bare yard, that is seriously unpleasant.
