Landscaping is easy in some ways and not so easy in others. People make certain mistakes that can cause them problems. You can always go back and fix your landscape, but of course it can cost you extra money. You don’t want to throw money away, and that is why you need to avoid these three common mistakes.
The first mistake you want to avoid is not coming up with a solid plan. If you shoot from the hip, you’re going to end up messing up. You might not figure everything out that you want to do at first, but coming up with a plan is key. That way you won’t spend money on buying things that you don’t need or that can’t go together.
A second mistake that people always make is planting the wrong things. This will also cause you to throw money away. For example, I made the mistake of planting a baby orange tree on my Texas lawn right before summertime (I can’t believe I had to pay for tree removal). No, it didn’t make it and never bared fruit. Be sure you don’t plant the wrong things, and one way you can do that is by paying attention to what is native in your area.
One more mistake you want to avoid is not having a plan for watering your landscape. Do you need a professional sprinkler system? You have to be able to maintain what you have, and that includes knowing how to take care of what you plant. Be sure you familiarize yourself with what you include in your landscape.
