Most homeowners wish to have a dream landscape at their properties. But are you aware of the mistakes you tend to make while designing a perfect landscape? These mistakes ruin your garden space and may become a nightmare for you. So while creating a landscape for your property, it is always better to take the help of a landscaping company. They will provide you with the best landscaping ideas, making your lawn look attractive and pleasing and thereby increasing the value of your property.
Not cleaning up the Leaves:
Fallen leaves portray a messy look of the landscape and are considered to be an eyesore. If you do not clear your lawn area, these leaves will double your maintenance costs and efforts during spring. Fallen leaves are dangerous for your landscape as they may not allow the new grass to grow properly or become a house for pests, insects, or rodents.
Delaying the thought of cleaning your landscape of excessive fallen leaves degrades the value of your commercial property and harms plantations and grasses. Making your landscape free from leaves and other objects that may land up in your yards due to winds and storms is crucial.
Planting Trees Deep in the Soil:
It is highly dangerous to plant trees too deeply in the soil. Many people produce young stems deep in the ground to support them, which can rot the roots. This may also lead to the tree’s death due to insufficient air supply to the roots.
To avoid this fate, you must identify the area of the tree’s Crown. The Crown is the visible ring around the tree’s base, marking a contact between its headquarters and roots. You need to keep the height above the soil, which will help you enjoy the tree shade for a long time.
Improper Watering Patterns:
It is impossible to measure the appropriate quantity of water the plants require as different species have additional water requirements. Both over and under-watering can be dangerous for plants. Watering frequently reduces the plant’s ability to develop a strong root system and may result in the rotting of the roots. It is recommendable to water nearly one inch a week.
Moreover, it is believed that plantations should not be watered in the mornings and afternoons. But this is not true. Despite this, this is the best time to water them. The wind is often less at this time and allows the garden to dry. Further, watering the plants at midnight or evening welcomes fungus and bacteria, which cause various plant diseases.
Despite these mistakes, we also ignore the plants’ compatibility with the soil in our yards and the climatic changes in our regions. Special attention should be given to these areas also.
