Avoid These Mistakes For Great Landscape Installation Results in Pembroke Pines
Pembroke Pines generally has a great reputation and it is known for receiving several awards and has earned itself the title The All-America City. Consider it the place to live if what you desire is an all-rounded life. You won’t lack an opportunity to satisfy your cultural and artistic interests. There are also many parks for you to enjoy with family and friends some much-needed outdoor recreational activities. Sounds like the perfect place to call home, right?
Well, with all that’s going on in Pembroke Pines, the last reason you want your home to stand out is a shoddy-looking yard. As you plan for your landscape installation, here are some things to avoid by all means.
This is especially critical if you are installing your new landscape features in spring or summer. You may be tempted to fill your garden with the plants that are blooming in that season. Consider combining them with those that will flourish when they don’t.
Every garden looks beautiful the last week in May and the first week in June. But you also must look at yours the other 50 weeks of the year. Don’t make the mistake of limiting your plant choices to spring and early summer bloomers. Roses, irises, and peonies are wonderful garden companions, but you can’t rely solely on them. Consider plants that look good year-round such as evergreen shrubs and trees with interesting bark and perennial grasses, which can turn into lovely straw-colored feathers in winter.

The ‘Wrong’ Plants
Well, don’t misunderstand this. All plants are beautifully created, but not all of them can flourish or meet the purpose you have in mind. This could make them inappropriate for your garden, as the following post describes:
There are lots of reasons why plants may not be right for your yard:
- Plants that are invasive in your area will take over your garden and create lots of work while you try to keep them under control
- The plant doesn’t like your yard’s growing conditions (sun vs shade, wet vs dry location, clay vs sandy soil, etc)
- Your yard is in the wrong zone for the plant (ie. it’s too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer)
Most of the time when I make this mistake, it’s because I see a flower that I just have to have, even though it’s not an ideal plant for my location. And then I spend a bunch of time trying to get it to grow (or preventing it from growing everywhere), before I end up pulling it out.
The Solution: Research plants before you buy them to make sure they grow well in your location. And no impulse buys 🙂 Read more at From House to Home…
Always get a second or third opinion from the experts before you choose to purchase that flower or plant that you must have.
The Wrong Spot
Yep! You may follow all the advice above and get all-weather plants that are perfect for your zone but still plant them in the wrong place. This is as important as the previous considerations.
Plant placement is a key element of landscaping design and function. Placing plants like trees and bushes too close to your home can cause wilting due to heat, may cause dead spots, and can even erode paint. Additionally, placing plants in too little sunlight or suboptimal soil can be detrimental to plant health and growth. Landscaping technology, such as planning software, and even augmented reality devices, can help you visualize the space and avoid this landscaping design mistake. Read more at Workwave…
