Tips on Planning Your Garden Landscaping


If you are determined to implement a new landscape design of any kind, you are most likely not satisfied with the plants that already exist in your garden. But all those flower, shrubs, grass or any other plants are already there, so it’s not that easy to just start working on a new look. But before the actual work, every experienced landscaper would first examine the area you have available for work, analyse the profile of growing vegetation and then decide what can be left and used, and what – rather not. Of course, such decisions should always be consistent with the desires of home owner.

After inspecting the existing flora, landscape architects will eventually come up with a conclusion about the particular goals of your landscaping plan. Yet, there are a lot of things they have to take into consideration before they can actually remove or keep a given plant or group of them found in and around your house. So let’s go through all essential aspects one by one, as we ask some questions.

Maybe some of the growing plants are already acting like a focal point in the yard. If you ask for advice some of the garden landscaping consultants in Sydney, they would suggest an option to keep them where they are and develop an adequate surrounding for them, or you can even change their position instead. If there are some very large trees here, you might want to keep them too.

Okay, on to the new things. What kind of greenery would you and your family like to see, and of course, take care of? What are the dominant colours of plants (even if they are not some colourful flowers) and do they play well with one another? How tall are they? Once they know the answers, specialists will decide if it’s a good idea to keep certain plants or maybe it would be better to replant similar ones at a different spot.

Next, what kind of shading and what amount of water supply is needed for your greenery at the moment? Does the current arrangement allows for a decent exposure to sun light, thus providing enough hours for healthy growth? How about the irrigation of the landscape, are there any issues or obstacles?

Also, is there any invasive type of greenery? There are some areas (such as NSW, Australia) where landscapers are obliged by the law to get rid of such plant species. Or maybe only the branches and root systems are aggressively developing? If so, do they pose any danger to outdoor communication lines or to pipes installed underground?

Once you have all these questions answered, landscape gardeners can proceed with the actual implementation of chosen outdoor design.
