 Landscaping Problems

Everyone dreams of having an almost-perfect landscape. With perfect greenery, impressive patios and fascinating gazebos, such landscapes are to create ambiance.

Problem 1. Making the house look displaced in the landscape

The landscape designer should remember that the front yard or back yard and the house must coordinate. It is a mistake to landscape without considering the house first. Style and the colors of the landscape must go hand in hand with the design of the house.

Problem 2. Underestimating the landscaping costs

People must face it - landscaping is a pretty expensive project. From choosing the materials to hiring laborers, it's going to be more costly than one could ever imagine. Be realistic enough to know how much you can afford.

Problem 3. Forgetting all about landscaping lights

Flood lights installed close to the roof line can add considerably to the security of a home if they are directed away from the building.

Problem 4. Ignoring family's needs

One of the reasons a landscape is put up is to accommodate family members' requests like a playground, an ideal place for crocheting, etc. The landscape designer must try to fulfill such needs.

Problem 5. Putting everything in the backyard.

A backyard is perfect for landscaping but how about the front yard or the side yard? The designer must allot a space in front yards and/or side yards for benches, flower beds and other garden decorations.


Problem 6. Imitating neighbors' landscapes.

Originality is the key. If you like the neighbor's backyard, that's fine, but you must not be carried away and copy everything. You should have an original design.

Problem 7. Overdoing the straight lines

The designer must add curves and not get too fixated on straight lines. Curves are always interesting and they emulate a forest-like feel.

Problem 8. Forgetting the boundary
