Landscaping is a work in progress. There will always be an area to improve or something to tweak. However, there are some common landscaping problems that can be avoided with a little help and the right team behind you!
Topography Issues
Erosion and standing water can be a result of the topography of your property. Erosion occurs often because of a sloped area and can be addressed by a retaining wall or layered planting depending on your situation. It’s important to stop erosion before it gets out of hand. Standing water may be caused by drainage issues or low-lying areas. Standing water attracts mosquitoes and can lead to mold.
Plant Problems
Without the proper research and planning, you could be wasting your money by planting bushes or trees in the wrong place and maintaining them incorrectly. Placement is an important part of the planning process as planting too close to structures can lead to root damage in the future. It’s important to know the following before you get planting
– your soil conditions
– does the plant require sun or shade?
– when is the right time to plant?
– what will the future growth of this plant look like?
Plant Maintenance
As mentioned above, improperly caring for your plants is another huge problem. This could mean improperly mulching them and piling mulch up on the plant which could cause rotting. Or maybe underwatering or overwatering your new plants. Improper pruning done at the wrong time can be especially damaging.
