You get the most stunning display from Roses, and they aren’t difficult to look after either. Any local greenhouse will show you the varieties and colors that are on offer and give you advice about planting and maintenance. Some are really hardy and take hardly any looking after.

Unique Features: You may be privileged to have truly unique features in your yard that can add real character to your new landscape such as large boulders or even an existing stream. Make sure to notate these items so you can work them into your overall plan.

Incorporate in your low maintenance garden design, things that are low maintenance, like pavers, gravel, pebbles, rocks etc but make sure you either have them professionally put down for you or learn how to do the jobs like the professionals. Everything is in the preparation, learn to do the tedious first and the end result will definitely be low maintenance.

Your landscape can be formal or informal; you can have plantings that mirror each other or well-balanced placements and focal points dispersed. Either way, try for a balance that presents a pleasing overall picture. Your plantings and hardscape selections should be proportionate to your dwelling and other structures. Bear in mind how big that azalea bush in front of your porch or deck will become in its maturity. Consider how much shade that small poplar tree will offer once it reaches its full height.

First, you have to know where the best place in your yard is to grow veggies. The site should have enough exposure to sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours each day and easy access to water so the plants would be able to grow healthily.

A simple stone marker is fairly cheap and is an elegant reminder of your lost pet. The stones can be customized with an inscription or design to eulogize the pet. For a more elaborate reminder, a picture of the pet can be inscribed on the stone.

Odors, noise and lights: Allow your senses to open up and record anything else you notice that would impact the enjoyment experience of your new landscape. If they are annoying, you can try to plan to fix them.
