Tips for Designating New Flowerbeds and Landscaping Areas

Last updated 6 years ago

Similar to the furniture, paint colors and accessories inside your home, there is nothing like well-planned landscaping to give your front or back yard color and beauty. As many homeowners will tell you, adding plants to your yard is a tried and true method of improving your landscaping.

A supply of landscaping stones is perfect for installing new flowerbeds. Stones are a wonderful solution for creating a natural setting for new flowerbeds—here are a few tips you may want to consider for designating their location:

Plant on Flat Ground

Whether you are just planting a few flowerbeds or an entire garden, make sure that the area where you landscape is flat. For homeowners who are new to gardening, you will save yourself effort and frustration if you garden on a flat surface. More experienced gardeners, however, may want to try something new and challenging with a sloped surface.

Determine the Size

When landscaping flowerbeds with a supply of stones, be sure you order enough stones for the entire area you wish to plant in. If you are unsure as to the size of your new flowerbeds, then  it is recommended that you start small and expand later.

Maximize Sun Exposure

In order to keep your flowers healthy and long-lasting, make sure that they receive as much sun as needed. Before you pick out your flowers, you may want to do some research to determine which flowers will thrive in your yard. Map out the sunny and shady areas in your garden-to-be and plant accordingly.
