Top Landscaping Mistakes to Avoid as a Homeowner

  • Plant Placement and Selection: Some homeowners who are overly eager to get started on their landscaping neglect doing the necessary research to ensure their plants are properly placed. Educate yourself on what your space can accommodate as far as light, water requirements, size, etc. and then select plants that will fit these specifications. Additionally, pay close attention to plant placement and the estimated size of the selected plants when fully grown.
  • Soil Health and Yard Maintenance: To keep your landscaping looking supreme, regular yard maintenance and paying attention to your soil health are key. Failing to plan for regular upkeep and soil testing can prevent your plants from thriving. Create a maintenance schedule that works for you and includes testing for healthy soil, pruning, weeding, mulching, and more.
  • Lack of Plant Diversity: A professionally landscaped yard typically includes a variety of different plants and hardscaping, creating landscaping that is visually interesting, functional, and looks beautiful in every season. Avoid boring landscaping by diversifying your plants and yard features.

Avoiding these common landscaping mistakes can help you create an outdoor living space that you can enjoy for years to come.
