Four Tips When Planning a Landscaping Project
Updated: Jun 16, 2022
Summer's finally here, and you're ready to whip your yard into shape, creating the backyard oasis you've always wanted. Maybe it's time to pour a new patio, or pave the side of the yard. Maybe this is the year where you will finally get the sprinkler system working properly!
Whatever your project, we want to share our top tips for ensuring whatever you do in your yard has lasting impacts, and doesn't create long-term headaches.
Always install a drip system.
After spending a good amount of money on plants, you want them to thrive year after year, and a little big goes a long way. With Colorado's dry and arid climate, it's a good idea to install a drip system when you're planning a hardscaping project. That way, if you leave town, or forget to water the plants on a particularly hot day, you don't have to worry about it.
Extend Your Time Outdoors: Plan for Lighting
It may seem intimidating at first, but installing exterior lighting helps extend the life of your backyard, so you can enjoy it well into the evening, even after the sun dips below the horizon. Alternative lighting options can also include an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, string lights across your yard, or rope lighting around a patio!
Landscape lighting can also increase security, and ensure you can keep an eye on little ones when they are exploring the yard at nightfall.
To add dimension, and conserve water, consider mixing materials in your yard! Whether that's different sized of rock, pavers, or leveled beds, a mixture of organic materials will ensure your yard is fun and interesting, and able to keep up with daily use.
