Tips for Building a Brand-New Garden

04 June 2018

Not everyone who rents gardening equipment is about to landscape their new garden from scratch. Creating a brand new garden can be exciting and daunting. Here are a few tips to keep in mind before your fingers get green:

  • Research Plant Maintenance

The plants that you choose should match your lifestyle as well as the aesthetic goals you are trying to achieve. If you know that you don’t want to spend much time in the garden, you need to make sure you are opting for plants that don’t need TLC on a daily or weekly basis.

  • Paveway Type And Materials

The paveway that you install will have a big impact on your garden. Some popular choices are pavers and concrete (both options will create quite a different effect, so browse through images online to see what works best with your home’s design).

  • Water Restrictions

Many parts of the country now have water restrictions, so research local municipality guidelines. You don’t want to be wasting too much water on keeping your garden green and you definitely don’t want to be fined for going over the water limit in your area.

  • Height And Location Of Trees

Few gardens feel complete without a few trees. Make sure you inquire about the mature height of trees and plan the location so that it is not too close to your home or other building structures on your property.
