Common Problems with Landscape Design

Landscape Design Problems

Does your landscape design feature these common issues?

We understand just how important a beautiful landscape is to you. Most people dream of having a landscape design fit for a painting, like something out of a classic Thomas Kinkade piece. When you think of great landscape design, you probably don’t imagine an unfocused hodge-podge of different visions. But is this what your current landscape design is reduced to? Your landscape ought to be an invitation to your home, not a distraction! Here are some common problems that you might find in your current landscape design.

Common Plants

Overuse of the same plants on different properties can create a boring look. With over 400,000 species of flowering plants around the world, there is a lot of room for customization and creating a colorful landscape that is really unlike anything else in the neighborhood. A high-quality landscape designer with extensive expertise can help you bring out the best in your yard and create major curb appeal for your property.

Choosing the Wrong Site and Soil for Plants

Another fairly common mistake in landscape design is placing plants in the wrong place. This can often be avoided by checking the plant tags for information on the kind of soil needed or how much sunlight a plant needs. If a plant needs a lot of sunshine to thrive, you wouldn’t place it on the shaded portion of your landscape, would you?

Plants and Beds That Don’t Fit In

Good landscape design blends in with the style of the home. Having a keen eye for the home style helps landscape designers come up with plants and flower beds that fit in with overall look and feel of the property. Often, though, you’ll see old-fashioned homes paired with modern-looking landscaping, and vice versa.
