Ideas To Help You Improve Your Yard And Garden Landscaping

Sonia Scott

The landscaping around your home provides a unique design and beautiful appearance to your home and property. And with the value boost it can provide your property, landscaping is much more than a visual improvement. Here are some ideas and recommendations to help you improve and boost the health and appearance of your yard landscaping.

Use Planter Containers

Planter containers are a great option to add to your landscaping design, as they provide many benefits for various purposes. Planter containers are above ground so they contribute visually to your yard by adding in different heights of vegetation and breaking up the line of ground-level plants. Look for various sizes and heights of planter containers and in a variety of designs, colors, and patterns to add to your yard's appearance.

With planter containers in your yard, it makes it easier to garden and work with the soil if you have a difficult time crouching down or kneeling on the ground. Planter containers bring the ground up to you a bit. Just be sure you add to the soil each season with supplemental mulch or fertilizer

Planter containers are also a great way to plant your tender vegetable plants that are attractive edible food sources to local wildlife. Rabbits and other small wildlife that live in the surrounding fields or lots in your home can quickly turn your new vegetable plants into a single stub protruding from the ground. But with planter containers, your plants will be safely out of harm's way.

Supplement Your Soil With Compost Mulch

Whether you are planting in containers above ground or in bedding areas directly within your soil, it is important that you keep the soil rich and full of nutrients. Each time you plant vegetation in your soil it will pull nutrients and use them for growth. For this reason, it is recommended that you supplement your soil by replacing essential nutrients, which you can do with mulch.

Find bagged mulch from a local home and garden retailer or you can order it by the yard from a local landscaping company. The landscaping company can deliver and add the mulch directly onto your soil to work it into the area. Or you can add the mulch into the soil as you plant new vegetation, working it around each individual plant.

You can also make your own mulch compost by using organic materials from your home and yard. Materials such as lawn clippings, vegetable peelings, shredded newspaper, and dead leaves make great mixture materials to combine and make a rich brown compost mulch.

New Gardener? Choose Your Flowers Carefully

As a child and teenager, I watched my mother garden, although I wasn't interested in it at the time. I later learned that I had missed out on learning the craft because before I planted my first garden, I thought it would be so easy! Once I finally had a yard of my own, I was eager to plant some beautiful flowers in the yard and do other landscaping work. Unfortunately, I learned a hard lesson and none of things I planted survived more than a few weeks, even though I watered them daily. I gave my mother a call and asked her what could have gone wrong, and I learned that plants have to be chosen carefully. Check out this blog to learn more landscaping plant tips.
