What Does Your Landscaping Plan Need?


There are a few different things that any good landscaping plan will need to be successful. First you should know what a successful landscaping plan is. To be successful a landscaping plan needs to be well thought out and all issues must be dealt with and accounted for. This means taking into consideration the amount of sun each are of the yard will get as well as how much water it will receive and where the water will sit. Drainage is imperative to any well thought out landscaping plan. You need to have the right kind of irrigation if you want anything to grow and flourish in your landscaping plan.

You should take close stock of what is already around before you start any kind of landscaping plan. All of the best ones will use the natural beauties that are already a part of any yard. Most yards will have something going for them so find this and use it to make your landscaping plan stunning. For example there may be some gorgeous flowers or trees, or some great rock formations. Why rip these out only to plant another thing, that is just a waste of living things in some cases and totally unacceptable. Use what is there and your landscaping plan will look that much more natural and gorgeous every single time.

Examine all aspects of the yard to be landscaped. Will you need to level or hill up any areas? Are the angles good as they are or do they need a little help? These kinds of things matter and will have some part of the drainage aspect mentioned above when it comes to your landscaping plan.

Most people do not have a million or so dollars to spend so you will have to take this into consideration when you are coming up with your landscaping plan. You need to know how much you will be able to afford before you go all out designing this amazing, yet expensive landscaping plan. You will probably not be able to afford to change the whole slope of your yard even if you wanted to so try to stay within the scope of your money and your ideas.

Make sure that your landscaping plan has taken everything into consideration and only then should you start putting this plan into motion.

    Well presented…..I like the knowledge i find in here very much so…..I came here to see if i could get an answer to a question that i have…..I am working on a project for a prestige Country Club In West Vancouver……I have a sloped hill that is 200 feet long 50 feet tall…..the slope has to stay and the angle also to match the landscaping plan and overall look…..After it was scraped clean from an excavator i noticed clay was prominent on the whole surface…..((no drainage))…..At the bottom of this slope is a dozen tennis courts…..i need a solution lol…..i cant have the courts dirty or being leaked on every time it rains…..or when winter snow melts….etc…..my solution would be to dig in 2 diagonal half circle ditches from top to bottom draining the water at the bottom ends of the slope as well as a half circle drainage ditch from your previous drainage ditches to a place outside of the tennis courts…..Is this a solution to the problem??? I am thinking you may have a better idea for me……….

    Hope to hear from ya or to find something here to help me make my final decision…..if so id like to send pictures with the finished product for you to show here….. Sincerely Black mtn Stone
