While landscape can add value and curb appeal to your home or business, not all landscapes are created equal. A poorly designed landscape can end up costing owners hundreds or even thousands of extra dollars. Not to mention leaving them with a huge eye sore.
Here are some landscaping mistakes that you should avoid when planning out your new yard or business space:
Not Enough Planning
If you’re thinking about landscaping, you’re going to need a complete plan before implementing your landscape design. The professionals at Corion Landscape Management can help by taking inventory of your current landscape, making an analysis of your current soil conditions, and existing vegetation. Then, Corion is able to input your current landscape and property into our advanced 3-d landscape design software. Here we are able to visually layout ideas and plans for your property to increase value, improve drainage and create an outdoor sanctuary.
Ask yourself: “What do I want to use my space for and why?”
Don’t Neglect Your Landscape
One of the biggest landscaping mistakes one can make is not watering enough, which causes your plants to wilt and die. Corion can provide a variety of irrigation solutions including highly efficient drip systems that will match your budget, and protect your investment.
No Predator Protection
Don’t forget about pests. Insects, rodents, and other hungry intruders will target your yard, leaving you with a barren and depleted feeling. Corion Landscape can advise you about which plants are actually pest repellents, such as anise, mint, bleeding heart, or fountain grass, which will keep away larger critters like deer or rabbits.
Often the most overlooked portion of landscape is the lighting aspect. Exterior low voltage lighting can provide round the clock appeal and enjoyment of your outdoor space, plus provide the safety enrichment to prospective clients or visitors.
Forgetting Seasonal Changes
Not all plants last throughout the year. When planning your home landscape, keep in mind that the flowers you pick may not be in bloom all year round. A well planned and executed landscape design will include plants that bloom and offer color throughout all four seasons.
