Have a glance at common landscaping mistakes you tend to make while designing a garden at your properties. These mistakes should be avoided if you wish to enjoy the long-term benefits of your dream landscape.
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 is harmful to plantations and grasses. It is crucial to make your landscape free from leaves and other objects that may land up in your yards due to winds and storms.
Planting Trees Deep in the Soil:
It is highly dangerous to plant trees too deeply in the soil. Many people tend to plant young stems deep in the soil to support them, but this 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 need to identify the area of the crown of the tree. Crown is the visible ring round the base of the tree, marking a contact between the tree’s base and its roots. You need to keep the crown above the soil, and it will help you enjoy the shade of the tree for a long time.
Improper Watering Patterns:
It is not possible to measure the appropriate quantity of water required by the plants. As different species of plants have different 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 than nearly one inch in 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 in the 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.
