Choose Your Theme
The beauty about landscaping is that practically any theme can be applied that appeals to your liking. The magic of professional landscapers can turn your boring backyard into an English garden complete with rambling roses and ivy-covered rock walls, or a Japanese garden consisting of bonsai and miniature plants poised along pebbled walkways leading to cedar bridges that span soothing pools alive with goldfish.
Basically, the sky is the limit. There are only a few exceptions to fully realizing your imagined dream landscape. Your climate, for example, must be taken into consideration as certain plants will not tolerate extreme hot or cold conditions. The natural lay of your land, although adjustable to some degree, must also be taken into consideration. Other obstacles to landscaping are existing water and electrical lines and other man-made or natural objects which are necessary and cannot be altered.
Plan Your Design
Once you decide on the theme of your landscaping project, you can begin to plan what changes you want to make. This is like sketching out your main design before you begin to paint. In this process you will decide such things as what trees, fences, rocks, etc you want to remove as well as what walls, fountains, plants, etc you want to add.
Again, there is much more to this process than meets the eye. For example, soil types, excessive sun or shade, climate, and many other underlying criteria need to be taken into consideration in order to nurture and complete the perfect landscaping project.
