There is a lot to think about when landscaping a home. Landscaping doesn't just mean to improve a home's yard alone.
Things that you should be thinking about when landscaping your Centreville VA home, are areas such as, the patio, driveway, fence, hedges, decks, fountains, outdoor structures (pergloas, gazebos) or other outdoor structures you might want to add.
Use balance, not symmetry. A balanced distribution of plants creates a focal point, but the landscaping should never be symmetrical. For example, a large tree to the left of a garden can be balanced by a gazebo to the right. This creates a much more desirable effect in the landscaping, whereas a perfectly symmetrical look appears completely unnatural.
Making your landscaping multi-seasonal will allow you to take full advantage of your Centreville VA home. Outdoor structures with heating or cooling can extend the useful season of your outdoor areas. Choose plants and shrubs that bloom at various times throughout the year. You can also pick trees with nice foliage or evergreens which make your yard look alive all year long and provide shade to patios and decks.
Use stones, and pebbles to decrease the amount of grass on your lawn. Stones and pebbles are attractive additions to any yard, and they do not require regular maintenance. Grass requires regular mowing, watering, and fertilizing. Reducing the amount of grass in your yard can help to save you time, and energy.
