First do sketch on the things you want. Some of the things that you may want are a garden, children playground and land for patio. After you have decided what you exactly want, now you can proceed to the next step of landscaping.
The sun and wind patterns need to be observed as the next thing. This will help you decide on the location of your garden or your patio. Given example is a decision of placing a garden at north and later it is realized that that was not the appropriate part to place a garden. Or you may place your patio on the west part of your home then you find it hard to relax at the evenings because of sunlight. Never make a mistake that you will keep regretting about.
I advise you to stay at your yard longer so you can understand it well. To discover things that you don’t know about your yard, you have to stay longer. You will do landscaping easily if you stay in it for a longer time. This is essential for long-term landscaping.
Make sure you place a focal point in your garden. This is to attract eyes and make someone look around the garden. Most good looking gardens have several focal points for attraction. A sculpture, beautiful trees and shrubs may be used as focal points.
Don’t forget to pay attention on scaling and pacing. This sometimes is hard but this is important. There may be differences in color, shape and size. You should try to play around with the elements and watch the outcome. You have all the freedom of repeating some elements to see how they can work.
Try as much as possible to be flexible to changes when doing landscaping. Try to use what you like even if you strictly want a certain design. If you are not into changes, you may use designs that may make you regret later. I guess nobody will wish to feel so. So please avoid them. Patience in landscaping is important. Patience is going to help you come up with so many ideas. Consider temporary ideas for you to be able to apply new ideas that may come up.
