3 Decide how much time you want to spend on maintenance It is a good idea to ask yourself how much time you are willing to spend maintaining your grounds as this will surely influence your choice of products and plants, your number of flower beds and the size of the lawn area.

4 Assess

your needs How do you want to use the space? What do you want to do in your yard? Your family’s needs will not be the same 10 or even 20 years from now, which is why your landscape must allow for possible minor modifications over the years. For example, a sandbox could be turned into a vegetable garden and a play area could be covered with fruit trees, and so on. A functional layout is a successful layout that will stand the test of time.
