The first step in any garden project is to assess your needs and figure out what you’re hoping to achieve with your new endeavor. Are you looking to create a relaxing space where you can soak up the sun, while the smell of flowers wafts under your nose? Is your intention to cultivate fresh fruits and vegetables? Is your garden going to serve a utilitarian purpose, an aesthetic one, or both?
If your current garden is not living up to your expectations, or you’re starting from scratch, there’s a whole world of possibility, depending on your goals. With an eye for the finer things, Southern Landscapes has become a top choice for residents looking to create a garden that goes above and beyond.
What to Consider for Your Garden
There are a few important things to take into account when you start dreaming up your garden. First of all, it’s key to look at the amount of sun your lawn receives. Is it constant throughout the day? Are there sections that receive little to no sunshine at all? Certain plants can flourish with very little light, but others require multiple hours of sun each day. Southern Landscapes’s skilled horticulturists will take this into consideration when they compile a list of plants that would be well-suited to your garden.
Another important aspect of your garden is the soil quality and acidity. Plants typically do best in soil that is at a pH of 6.5, but it is entirely possible that your soil is either more acidic or basic than this. Southern Landscapes will first take a sample to assess the soil’s acidity, and, with this figure in mind, either work to balance it out through the addition of various materials, like limestone or sulfur.
The final major consideration is how much time you are able to dedicate to your garden. If you’re constantly on the go, Southern Landscapes will carefully select lower-maintenance plants that will still look beautiful without requiring large amounts of attention.
Gardens Are About More Than Plants!
No matter how big or small your property is, there are elements you can add to your garden that aren’t necessarily plants. If you’re working with a larger plot of land and are looking to add a bit of flare to your garden, Southern Landscapes is able to install beautiful, tasteful fountains or statues. For smaller areas, a stone pathway connecting your garden to the rest of your lawn is a wonderful choice, and serves as a way to guide visitors around your property.
