Top Tips for Landscaping a New Yard

It’s a typical hot summer day in Melbourne, Florida and you just closed on your favorite award-winning Maronda home from Maronda Homes of the Treasure Coast, in one of our 15+  single-family home subdivisions.  Now it’s time to get to work on creating that yard of your dreams.   Here are a few tips to help your thumbs turn green:

  • Research the subject of landscape design and visit your area’s nurseries.  Spend a day at your favorite parks and take tons of photographs.  If you decide to hire a landscape designer, ask for references and a portfolio of previous work.

  • Consider your home’s architecture, as well as the style and theme of the neighborhood. Traditional Florida homes benefit from evergreen shrubs and hedges, and lots of Palm Trees.

 

  • Select healthy plants from a reputable nursery. Avoid those that have pale leaves, spindly stems or a strange odor, which may indicate disease. Buy a few larger plants, rather than many small plants and give them adequate space to grow.  Sprinkle in some hard-scape, lighting and ornaments, such as tall glazed ceramic pots and fountains.

Plan your landscaping project in phases so it doesn’t become overwhelming. Within a few months, you’ll have a beautiful outdoor space that will provide years of relaxation and enjoyment for your family.  Sit back and relax,  enjoy some iced-tea and the rewards of your efforts.
