Whether you have a green thumb or not, you have it in you to landscape your yard in a way that’s pleasing to the eye and enjoyable to live with. The climate in Texas can change depending on what area you are in. Let’s discuss some tips for beautiful landscaping in Texas that work in every region.
Clean It Up
Begin your landscaping project by tidying up the current yard. Pull weeds, gather up stray twigs and branches, and—of course—mow the grass. You may even need to collect trash that has blown into our yards and gone unnoticed until this walk around the yard.
Use this clean up time to dig up dead plants or ones you don’t want anymore.
It’s helpful when landscaping to separate each area of the yard into a zone. Often, each yard can be separated into roughly four zones: the front, back, and two sides. If your yard is unique, create zones in a way that helps you design your landscaping.
Creating a quick diagram on a piece of paper will be helpful in writing down ideas for what you’d like to see in each zone. This is a great way to ensure you do not overbuy as you head out to purchase landscaping supplies.
Shrubs, Flowers, and Trees
Now that the yard is clean and you’ve settled on a design, it’s time to choose what you will plant.
Check with local gardening stores for advice on what works best for your unique yard. You’ll want to choose trees that happily grow in Texas to ensure they last for a lifetime. Shrubs and flowers are more forgiving. Still, native varieties are best.
Keep It Simple
Unless weeding and toiling in the yard is your passion, keep your landscaping simple and easy to maintain. With the proper planning, you can have a lovely yard without a lot of fuss.
Beautiful landscaping in Texas is easily accomplished when you follow these tips and seek the advice of professional gardeners in your area.
