2016 is here, and it is time to take stock of your yard and garden and determine the best way to improve its appearance, functionality and the overall health of your plants. Here is a checklist of resolutions you should make this year to ensure that your yard and garden are at their best.
Set up a schedule for routine maintenance. Most landscaping problems disappear when you follow a regular maintenance schedule. There are proper times to fertilize, water, mow and perform other maintenance jobs, so if you are unsure about your schedule, talk to a professional. Hiring someone to perform your yard maintenance may actually save you money when you consider the value of your time and the cost of putting off routine maintenance.
Analyze your yard’s “spaces.” Do you have space for your kids to play, to entertain, to relax and to simply enjoy the beauty of nature? If not, you may want to think about how your yard is zoned and make changes based on those observations. An ideal yard has well-defined areas for all activities. Simply putting up some hardscape or structures could help you zone your yard for activity spaces.
Choose low-care options. If you simply do not have the time or energy to devote to yard care, choose plants and other options that are low-maintenance. Some plants require much less care than others. They have lower water needs, fight pests naturally and survive in varying temperatures. These are the plants you want for your yard. You can save yourself both time and money simply by choosing the right plants and by incorporating more hardscape, buildings and other features into your landscape plan.
Track your progress. It is gratifying to compare your starting point to your finishing point. Take pictures before you begin a landscaping project, while the project is ongoing and when it is finished. You will gain a true sense of accomplishment when you look at how far you have come.
Create a landscape budget. Many people avoid landscaping because of the perceived cost. Landscaping costs are manageable, however, when you create a reasonable budget. Talk to an expert to get a realistic estimate, then break the cost into jobs that can be performed separately.
An expert like those at Juniper Landscape Company in San Diego can help you make wise choices for your plants, hardscape and other features of your yard. With help from us, you can have a low-maintenance yard that is still beautiful and enjoyable. Call us today to learn more.

I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
