    Landscaping Yourself

  • Landscaping can be a really fun but if you run
    into various problems while doing your garden
    makeover project, this enjoyment can become a
    nightmare. To make sure everything runs smoothly,
    it would be best to know the most common
    landscaping mistakes that many "do it
    yourselfers" are found guilty of.
  • Doing the garden makeover projects by yourself
    can be both enjoyable and challenging. If you
    want to save some dollars, it can be more
    practical to do the landscaping yourself than to
    hire a landscaping services company. Well, these
    two can be true if you really know what you are
    doing. However, if you think that you lack the
    skills and knowledge needed for landscaping, you
    better think twice before you even start with the
    project or else, you will be caught guilty of
    committing any of the common landscape mistakes
    listed below.

Preparation Mistakes
  • One major mistake that "do it yourselfers" like
    you may commit is carrying a garden makeover
    project without a solid landscape design plan.
    Having an idea about how you would design your
    garden and imagining how it would look like after
    the project is done is good. However, just
    keeping your ideas and imaginations inside your
    brain is not really enough. Chances are, you may
    not be able to achieve the look that you want for
    your garden and also, you may not be able to
    stick to your budget religiously.

Absence of Landscape Design Plan
6
  • Before you start the landscaping task, you must
    be able to list down first all the things that
    you needed and draw a solid landscape design
    plan. Your design plan does not need to be
    perfect and it does not have to look like it was
    made by a professional landscaper. You can make a
    draft of your plan in the most convenient way you
    know. The plan will serve as your guide when
    doing the landscaping. It will also help you
    visualize clearer how your garden will look like
    when the landscaping project is done. If you have
    a drawn plan, you can be able to evaluate it
    upfront to know if the garden, walkways, and
    patios are designed with a functional size and if
    they all flow into each other.

Short sighted vision of the landscape site
8
  • Some "do it yourselfers" are fond of installing
    plants and trees into their garden without
    thinking about how huge they can grow through the
    years.

9
Budget Mistakes
  • You may have already set a certain amount to pay
    for the plant, materials, garden decors and
    furniture that you want to use in your garden.
    But, have you also included in your list of
    expenses some other things that you may need for
    the project? Things like building permits, debris
    and trash hauling, portable toilet for the
    construction site, delivery, invisible items such
    as drain pipes, irrigation, and electrical
    materials, tools, and equipment, are all
    considered as expenses and therefore needs to be
    included in your budget. If you have not yet
    included these items in your list, then you
    better add them in your expenses list to ensure
    that you have them all covered.
