Considering Landscape Improvements for Your Home? Get Inspired

“Homeowners should be reminded that they must submit requests for any modifications to their HOA Architectural Change Committee for approval before making changes to landscaping plantings.”

Inspiration comes in many forms – by looking at landscaping websites, garden magazines, exploring your local nursery, traveling to other places, or simply by looking at neighboring yards.

Next, it’s time to map out the decorative elements. Creating a landscaping blueprint will give you a better idea of how many materials and plants you need, allowing you to make adjustments where needed.

Planning for New Landscape Installation

It’s important to plan out your landscape before digging into the dirt. Will you tackle the job in phases? How can you layout your outdoor space so that it is not only beautiful but environmentally sustainable and functional? Think about the layout of your landscape, research about the plants you want to grow, as well as everything you need to get the job done. Proper planning will make your spring landscaping project easier in the long run.

We encourage you to think about how large each plant will grow over time. Before buying new plants, research on their estimated height and growth requirements. This will allow you to space out your plants perfectly and ensure that you plant them in the best areas in your yard.

Homeowners should be reminded that they must submit requests for any modifications to their HOA Architectural Change Committee for approval before making changes to landscaping plantings.  They should review the rules of their governing documents to be sure they comply.

If your construction and DIY skills aren’t up to tackling a huge landscaping project, hiring a landscaping company will surely help your outdoor space reach its full potential. A professional can help you plan for your landscape, choose plants and materials, and guide you through the process of creating a landscape that can be transformed into your family’s favorite space.
