Arkansas Home Landscape
The landscape of your home encompasses the shrubs and trees, but also the annuals, perennials, groundcovers and vines. Your lawn showcases what you plant. A landscape also includes sidewalks, lighting, irrigation, decks and patios--it is the whole package.
Remember, the foundation to your landscape is the soil, so plan from the ground up. Planning is key to a successful design. Make sure you can maintain what you plant. Know the requirements of the plants you grow--do they need sun or shade, a lot of moisture or dry conditions? Are they prone to insects or diseases. Do a little homework.
Know when your plant blooms and if it needs pruning. Knowing when and how that should be done is important. A pretty yard just doesn't happen, but by choosing the right plant for the right location, low maintenance and beautiful is possible.
