The Biggest Things to Consider When Planning a Landscape Project

Landscape Project Planning

It may look effortless, but a lot of planning goes into the completion of a landscape project. Start today!

The winter season is a perfect time to start thinking about and planning a landscape project for your property. You can do your research and come up with some solid ideas about what you want out of your landscape. Whether you’re looking to expand the utility of your backyard with an outdoor kitchen or simply need a fresh look, it’s worth it to make a few considerations during the planning stage. Here are the biggest things to think about.

Identifying Your Lifestyle

Designing your landscape to best suit your lifestyle is a key consideration in planning a landscape project. Consider your unique needs. Do you need extra play space for your children? Are you looking for a new, better way to entertain your guests? It’s also worth asking yourself how you’ll maintain your outdoor space. More intricate plans may require more proactive upkeep, so if you don’t really have the time, it may be more worthwhile to pursue low maintenance designs.

Design Style

A great landscape project blends with the architectural style of the home and accentuates its beauty. You’ll want to give some thought to design cues popular in your home region as well. No matter whether the design is modern, tradition, rustic, or avant-garde, your landscape should give you a sense of joy!

Picking Plants

If you don’t know too much about plants, you can still make a list of the kinds of attributes you like best. That way you can cross-check this list with a list of the plants best suited for growth in your area.


It might be the most boring part of a project, but it’s also the most important part. Think about your budget, not just in terms of the initial outlay for the project, but also the maintenance costs over time. Check your homeowner’s association rules for any possible conflict. And cross-check your planning with local ordinances and building codes.
