Creating your own space and not keeping up with the Jones’.
Get inspiration from your neighbors and landscape ideas you like. Do not copy or make your garden and oasis the same as someone else’s. A landscape and garden is just as person as the finishing touches you chose in your home. You do not have to keep up with the Jones’ as the expression goes.
Everyone’s landscape site, soil conditions, and overall aesthetically pleasing taste will be different. You should personalize your landscape. Put your personal touches into your garden. After all, it is yours. You will enjoy your landscape more if you are involved with making it yours rather than just letting your landscape designer create a design to ‘fill’ your space. You never want to ‘fill’ your space. Create a living extension of your home.
