Having beautiful landscaping can add more than just property value; it can give you a sense of pride in your home, as well as making your home itself more appealing. But where do you start? Taking this on can be a big endeavor no matter the size of your lawn. Here are some tips on how to plant your front yard landscaping.
The first things you should consider when deciding how to plant your front yard landscape are any environmental issues that may be in the immediate area. Any steep inclines, large trees, as well as shade coverage can impact not only appearance but the longevity of your landscape. Landscaping your front yard in accordance with these factors will not only lead to a more aesthetically pleasing landscape but one that is also healthier and easily sustainable.
Another tip for planting your front yard is choosing plants appropriate for the location. The amount of sunlight and shade required, as well as optimal growth temperature, varies from plant to plant, even from variation to variation. Whatever plants you choose should be researched before planting to ensure survival.
Adding New Turf
If you’re trying to promote turf, it can be more challenging to do by oneself. Fescue lawns are the easiest to plant but the hardest to maintain. Fescue can be overseeded in heavily shaded bare areas to fill it in. Bermuda and zoysia seed doesn’t germinate enough through seeding to create thick, blanketed turf on their own because they are creeping turfs that can spread naturally to fill sparse areas. Both turf types can be laid down in pieces of sod, which will also root and spread, however, this is the more expensive option; starting anywhere from $2000 and increasing depending not only on size and amount but also turf type.
