Place Your Home In The Plans:
Your home is the largest focal point and thus must be included in your landscape planning. Your home and garden should work together in terms of style, scale, colors and materials. You can use trees to frame a house, but do not conceal it or overwhelm it. This will detract from the overall flow of your garden and diminish your curb appeal. You should use shrubs and flowers to create a welcoming approach to the entrance of your home. Create foundation plantings that are more than just a line of shrubs around the house — try varying levels of plants, deep borders and curves. Use seasonal colorful plants to add vibrant splashes of color to your garden landscape.
