6 tips for backyard landscaping and garden designs

1. Good planning and buying local plants and flowers for your backyard landscaping and garden design can save you lots of money and energy. Choose bushes and trees wisely and avoid replanting them. This is extra work, and replanted trees or bushes can die.

2. Do not buy seeds (except wildflower seeds) just because you like the bright pictures of flowers on packages. Seeds must be planted in pots first, which takes more work and time to grow.

Seeds are not for people who like to create attractive garden designs effortlessly. Even if you sow seeds directly into the ground, the tiny seedlings can be easily lost among the grass.

3. Choose small tasks for garden design and spring decorating. Do not try to create a green fence, a few flower beds, and a vegetable garden at once; remember that backyard landscaping and garden designs are hard work.

5. Many people like formal gardens, where flowers, shrubs, and trees are planted along straight lines, creating borders and fences. If you appreciate asymmetry and free-shaped flower beds, choose informal backyard landscaping and garden design ideas to save time and effort.

6. Water your bushes, trees, and flowers regularly, especially at the beginning of creating your beautiful garden design, when the seedlings, shrubs, trees, and flowers have just been planted. Lack of water can kill plants and flowers quickly, so ensure the soil is always moist.
