There are a ton of resources out there for folks who want to handle home projects on their own — and some of the easiest projects revolve around installing or sprucing up your landscaping. But there is a lot that goes into landscape design that the average homeowner may not know to consider. So let’s talk about that! Creating a landscape design is more intensive than just deciding where you want to put your bushes and flowers. You have to think about how to handle any sloping in your yard, as well as things like protecting against erosion without blocking water runoff that would flood your garden. That means choosing the right materials and arranging your designs accordingly.
If you don’t plan to have a professional help you, even if it’s just to create a design, it’s important to know the ins and outs of different options and the functions they serve, especially for the all-important lawn border.
