Landscaping requires one to design and beautify the surroundings. It can be considered to be an art as well as science.

Landscaping tips can be suggested by a landscaper who understands the basic nature of land and its construction and the various ways by which it can be blended.

Landscaping is a great way to enhance the look of your home. It is a method that beautifies the house surrounding with gardens, ponds and other features.

Below are 4 landscaping tips you can use: 1) Try to cut the edge of the lawn to keep it looking fresh. You can do this by edging the beds of the lawn.

2) Get old wood material you have around the lawn refurbished. This can be done by washing, bleaching and repainting it. The look of fresh colors will make your lawn stand out.

– To nourish the grass properly it is wise to water the plants, grass and shrubs regularly.

4) Use anti pests products to keep the bugs away. You can also add fertilizers to make the plants, flowers and lawn look better and more vibrant.

Finally, you can add new vibrance to your garden by using different shapes and sizes of boulders. Since boulders come in different colors one can assemble them in such a manner as to get beautiful settings, which can be eye catching as well.

What other characteristic could describe better a human being that curiosity? Since we are born we start exploring everything that surrounds us: first trying to taste everything we can grasp, afterwards just walking in every possible direction without thinking on the risks… Even as adults we try to conquer new places, stepping on the moon or exploring Mars. And this has been like this since our species appeared. (Continue reading)

If you’re looking for landscape tips, here’s a few simple ones I can offer you. Probably the most important thing you need to note when you’re out thinking about what to plant and where to plant it, is where’s the sun and where’s the shade. Too often, people plant sun-loving plants in the shade or shade loving plants in the sun. You really need to assess how much sun is that spot going to get during the day. For full-sun plants, which are most plants that we like to plant, you need at least six hours. If you only have four hours of full sun and four hours of dappled sun, dappled shade that’s going to be okay. You really want to make sure that you have enough sun for a full-sun plant. If you have shade, which many of us do, especially here in New York City around tall buildings, you really want to focus on shade-tolerant plants and shade-loving plants. In this case, many of these plants actually need to be in the shade, and if you planted them in full sun they would suffer, the leaves would burn and the plant would wither.

The next thing I see amateurs doing a lot is planting a big plant, or something that will become a big plant that’s now very small, in a small space. You need to really do your research and ask yourself honestly, how big is that plant going to eventually get? You may go to the nursery or your local box store and buy a small, little plant, a small, little tree that you think, “Oh, that fits that space perfectly,” but if you read the label, and they all have labels, you’re going to see that tree will probably become 60 feet tall and 40 feet wide. That little small space that you planted it in is, suddenly, going to be that giant tree pushing up against your house. So be careful, and read the label. If it’s a large plant, even though it’s small now, it will get large. Make sure you give it enough room to grow. You don’t want to have a plant that you have to keep pruning, holding it back because it wants to get bigger than it is.

If you plant the plant in a space that will eventually grow into that’s probably going to leave a lot of open space around plants. While you’re waiting for those plants to grow in, you can fill in those open spaces with annuals, perennials or just ground covers. You do want to make sure that you cover the soil in between the smallest immature plants, because if you leave the soil bare, something will come and grow there. It’ll be weeds, you won’t like it, and you’ll have to pull them out. Plant the plant in a space that has enough space to grow and fill in the vacant space with annual, perennials, ground covers to prevent weeds. Those are just a few landscaping tips out of so, so many.
