Gather the following for your landscape design.

Make a list of plants you dislike.
Create a Pinterest board of gardens you like & elements you want included in your landscape.

In historic, organic, beautiful, easy landscapes. To achieve this I use flowering shrubs, trees and groundcovers.
Landscapes begin inside your home into window views.
A landscape must be beautiful in February and  May.
Higher property value & lower HVAC are the product of good landscape design.

  7. Planning like this can be of help in organizing your thoughts as to how your garden should look like. Let your imagination and creativity flow to help you plan which and how your choices of flowers, accessories, and other ornaments will look like in your garden. Yes, the contractors can do all the work, but the design is more fulfilling if it comes from your own thoughts. :)
