Establish the needs in your landscape

Everyone’s need and the idea for landscaping would be varied – such as space for kids to enjoy and play, grow fruits and vegetable, flowering plants, create a family get together on a patio or anything on the similar line.

As a part of your planning – write down the list of things that you are considering in your garden. you may do a rough sketch of the yard with details of things placed at each corner and organising the landscape model. This gives you an idea of how the result would look like. Remember that this is not the master plan, but it gives you an idea of all the things that may or may not fit in your landscape. Take your time and be committed to doing the sketch, you may have to redo the sketch before finalising the best one.
