If you are like most homeowners, you probably have a running list of projects you would like to get done around your yard. With so many things to do, it can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, there are small things you can do to improve your landscape and set yourself up for further success. 

Pinpoint What Success Would Mean

You can lay out some criteria for measuring success by answering a few simple questions. Are you trying to solve a problem? For instance, do you need more privacy or an open space for the pets to run? Answering this can help you set priorities and focus on specific solutions rather than getting lost in the bigger picture.

What kind of look do you want to create with your landscape? Are you looking for a peaceful place to entertain or a more manicured garden? Try to visualize the final product and don’t hesitate to look for inspiration in other landscapes. 

What is my budget and when would I like it completed? These are some practical questions that you will need to consider. Be realistic about how long it will take to finish the project and spend some time pricing plants and other materials so that you can have an accurate idea of the costs and what you can afford. 

Start Small

It is exciting to think about all the possibilities for your landscape, but if you want to make progress now, start with smaller, more manageable tasks. Instead of starting with a koi pond, try adding some color and texture to your gardens with low-maintenance plants and shrubs. You won’t have to worry about a lot of upkeep and your yard will instantly look better.
