Need Landscaping Advice? These Tips Can Help!

A good landscaping project can make your curb appeal go through the roof. All you need is a bit of guidance on how to become better at landscaping.

Softer Look

Create a softer look in your yard with curved borders. Having rounded shapes in your yard looks prettier than geometric shapes. You will gain a softening effect through curved borders, and they also give flow to those who are viewing the lawn. It will also reduce the effect of your hard-cornered elements.


Landscaping can affect your property in other ways. Underground drainage pipes, in particular, can be adversely impacted by plants roots. Even safety can be impacted by plants. If your vision is blocked by shrubbery when you are backing out of your driveway, you have a problem. Carefully consider these things when you are creating your landscape plan and any others you can think of.

Landscape Design

Make a design that is pleasant and functional. As an example, make sure that your family and guests will always have a space to park their cars and walk through your yard. Don't plant anything too near your house, as this will attract spiders and bees in the summer months.


A great way to spruce up your Gainesville VA landscaping, is to add some attractive outdoor lighting. Small solar lamps up the driveway, or in planting areas can provide a lovely accent to your yard, or special plants and trees. They can be purchased inexpensively at your local home improvement store, and installed quite easily.
