You may be thinking that landscaping is a simple DIY task that you can handle over the weekend. That is far from the truth. For that perfect green lawn with beautiful trees, flowers ,and plants you will need some careful planning and design.
What type of grass will you use for your lawn? You have the option of laying artificial grass or growing natural grass. Some advantages of artificial grass is that it is evergreen, does not need watering, and will reduce the allergens in your yard. Natural grass; on the other hand, looks better than artigicial grass when well maintained. To plant natural grass you can do sod laying, seeded growth, or hydro seeding. Some of the most commonly used grasses locally are Zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine, Buffalo, Bahia, and Fescues.
A lawn without trees or shrubs will make your overall landscape look bland. Plants and trees add color to your home. Trees and plants can be used on the curb and along yard borders. Trees take some time to grow to maturity, so small plants with faster growth rates can be planted to make a presence before the trees fully mature. We commonly use Texas redbuds, crape myrtles and live oaks. Plants such as artichokes and agaves are ideal for lining up pathways.You can use flowers to enhance some of the home’s features from the outside, and flowers can also frame outside views as seen from the house. Flowers bring color, scent, and life to the birds that flutter around them.
Xeriscaping is landscaping done with conservation in mind. This means less water and chemical use in maintaining the lawn. Certain plants and trees are ideal for xeriscaping. Native plants and trees that have adapted to the local Central Texas rain cycles are best to use in xeriscaping. A well-designed landscape must be maintained by watering, weeding, and application of fertilizer when needed. Lot cleaning is also necessary to keep debris and dead vegetation away.
