What You Need To Know About Landscaping Outside the Garden

  1. 1. Many people think of landscaping as a strictly garden venture; however, this is not true. Landscaping principles can be applied to the entire yard for a more attractive and appealing appearance.

  2. 2. Keeping container plants outdoors on your patio, porch or deck is a great way to give these areas a homey appeal. You can keep more delicate plants this way because these areas tend to be sheltered, and it is easy to cover delicate plants during freezing weather when they are close to the house and contained.

  3. 3. Be sure to pull your home’s look together by applying a layer of attractive mulch to your container plants and to all your garden beds and under your shrubs. Having nice looking mulch on all planted surfaces gives a uniform look that is inexpensive and easy to achieve. More info on: http://www.acrlandscaping.com.au/services.html
  4. 4. Good landscaping includes pruning and trimming. Be sure to keep your bushes and shrubs nicely shaped and trimmed. Attend to any perennial plantings by dead-heading flowers and spent foliage. Pick up all dead windfall branches and other debris and rake up your leaves. More info on: http://www.acrlandscaping.com.au/services.html
  5. 5. Another area of landscaping that is often overlooked is water. Be sure to attend to any water features you may have, such as ponds, fountains and birdbaths. Keep them clean and free of algae, bug and mosquito infestations. More info on: http://www.acrlandscaping.com.au/services.html
  6. 6. Make sure all mechanical aspects of your water system from faucets to water pumps to irrigation are in good working order. If you have leaky faucets, puddles of water surrounding your irrigation or rusty fixtures on your water features, it is unsightly. More info on: http://www.acrlandscaping.com.au/services.html
  7. 7. Another unsightly thing that can ruin your best efforts at landscaping is grime. Keep your paths, porches, deck and driveway swept. Hose and scrub them as needed. Use a power washer if necessary. More info on: http://www.acrlandscaping.com.au/services.html
