But before you start any project, here are some tips to help you in your landscaping project:

1.        Curb Appeal Round the Year

Landscaping is a time consuming process. To get the maximum benefit from minimal work, use evergreen plants for landscaping. It will maintain the appeal of the curb the whole year without having to replant and redesign again and again.

2.        Attractive Walkways are the Key

Connect elements in your landscaping with attractive walkways. These walkways can be made out of materials that were used on the house’s exterior like decorative brick, crushed stone, natural flagstone and concrete stepping stone. It will add texture and character to your landscape instead of using a trampled or a makeshift path.

3.        Plant Combinations

If you take the advice of our expert Bucks County landscapers, we will recommend you to plant a diverse range of plants and flowers while landscaping. It will not only add color and sophistication to your landscape but also the different blooming time of the plants will make your garden colorful for all the seasons.

4.        Seating Area

Adding a seating area in the landscape will provide an additional feature to your landscape as well as it will provide a comfortable spot to just sit down or read a book. Installing a patio will be an excellent idea especially near the edge of your lawn. You can also design your landscaping around this patio and you can plant flowers around it to give it an extra edge.

5.        Curved vs. Straight Lines

While landscaping, it is common to add edging to flower gardens in straight lines. To add extra appeal to your landscaping it is advisable to use creative curves instead of straight lines. As it is permanent, it will enhance the pavement all year long which is an easy way to make your boring garden more attractive.

6.        Use Lights to Emphasize Focal Points

Lights are both a necessity and they add attractiveness to your landscape. Most commonly lit areas are steps and sidewalks. You can use lights to illuminate these areas as well as add emphasis to points of interest in the landscape. Like the edging, these lights can also be placed in straight lines or they can be placed in alternatives sides to break up a line. It will be more creative and will look more attractive to the visitors especially at night.

7.        Try a Rustic Look

While planning, you might consider a rustic look for your landscaping. It is an evergreen look and will always be in style. Plus you can find old-fashioned materials such as split rail wood fencing, old-fashioned wagon wheels or other things easily.
