Then, write down the features you want in your landscape. You can include vegetable garden, fire pit, porch, chair, and even play area. Use Pinterest or Home Garden Website and magazines to find the best ideas for your landscaping. Make sure to discuss with your family about any feature in your landscape. Do some sketch out and design include rocks, trees, plants, flowers, paths and structure. Don’t forget to compare the costs of material such as wood, metal, composite or plastic fencing or even dirt. I recommend you to make tree planting a priority to enrich your soil and provide fresh air to your home. Then, you can call professional Residential Landscaping to execute your design and planning.
