FRONT YARD LANDSCAPING
In the front yard, you can enhance the appeal with a beautiful walkway, or clear your lawn in favor of an eco-friendly garden.
Before you start digging, you’ll need to have a plan in mind. Start with these 4 steps:
1. Outline: Start with an outline of your property or work area. This does not need to be scaled at the moment but should include permanent features such as your home, shed, large trees or shrubs, existing living areas, pools, etc.
2. Measure: Take out that rough note and measure everything. Keep notes of what you learned from the process. Consider where windows and doors are for viewing and traffic patterns, and where plumbing and electrical outlets are located.
3. Transfer: Transfer your property map to chart paper and scale; This will become your master copy. Note sun and shade patterns, windy areas, slopes, etc.
4. Trace: Start experimenting with designs using tracing paper above your master copy.
