You’ve gotten your yard ready for winter and colder weather has started to arrive. For many people, the end of the holiday season means it’s time to start thinking about spring. Here at Lee’s Nursery & Landscaping in Rock Hill, we’re always ready to help you come up with new and innovative landscape design ideas. As you dream about green grass and beautiful plants, consider these tips for helping your landscaping be the best it can be.

Focus on your home. You wouldn’t have a yard if you didn’t have a home. So don’t ignore the house as you’re planning your landscape design. The trees, shrubs, and plants in your yard shouldn’t overwhelm the house itself. Instead, find ways to highlight areas of interest.

Keep it casual. Think about the maintenance and upkeep involved in the landscaping you choose. Unless you want to pay for professional maintenance, you’ll want something that’s relatively easy to take care of. Choose plants that will grow well in our region and in your particular environment.

Choose wisely. Speaking of environments, it’s critical to choose the right location for the right plants. Sure, you may want a particular shrub in a particular place in your yard. But if the drainage and sunlight aren’t what that plant needs, it won’t thrive—or won’t live at all. If you’re unsure of what will work best, visit our nurseries in Rock Hill, SC for our professional advice.

Plan for the future. Don’t design your landscaping so that your lawn mower won’t be able to get through. Also think about whether you’ll want to add features to your home in the future like a deck or a patio. Factor that in with your initial design so you won’t lose mature landscaping in the future.
