Before you make the decision to landscape your garden including the spaces around your home, you should take into consideration that this DIY landscaping is no simple project which is going to be completed in a day or two, but may extend as long as several months, depending on exactly what you want to do.  In fact, if you really enjoy being outdoors and working in the garden, this could turn into a project that will last for years.

Not the actual brunt of the work, such as any major digging, or anything requiring machinery, but just the general changing of the landscaping ideas for your home, and the surrounding yard.  There’s such a variety of things that you can do, that once you get started you might just want to go on and on, keeping your garden a work in progress.  Here are some suggestions on how to go about landscaping your house and garden:

Draw, Draw, Draw

No garden landscaping should be attempted without first putting everything down on paper.  You begin by drawing the layout of your garden exactly as it is at present.  Use a measuring tape to determine the space between walls, walks, driveways and raised flower beds, then proceed to draw these elements to scale.  This will permit you to make plans for any additions and renovations in advance.

Once you’ve completed your garden landscaping drawing, then make several copies of this so that you will have actually plenty of copies to draw on as you make your plans.

A Little Bit of Everything

With so lots of options such as retaining walls and garden edging to name just a couple, it’s really exciting when you begin putting your landscaping ideas for your house and garden into action.  It can also be a little confusing to have actually so lots of choices pulling at you.  One thing you can consider if you have actually a large garden is adding another permanent path or two to your garden to both enhance aesthetics and make it less difficult for visitors to walk about without dodging the flower beds or vegetable garden.  These paths can be made from four basic materials, either concrete, stone, gravel or brick.

You can also build a couple retaining walls.  These are excellent as a means of holding back loose soil or even for making raised garden beds.  Not only can they be in different shapes, but retaining walls can be made from a variety of materials such as brick, stone, concrete or wood.  Another good idea for DIY landscaping is to add an additional fence or two.

Plus you can build a patio in your garden which will be excellent for entertaining guests or just hanging out and relaxing on a beautiful day.  Selecting the dimensions and deciding on what type of material to use for your patio should keep you busy for quite some time.

All of the above are just some suggestions to help you get started on your landscaping journey.  As the project moves along you will learn about and think of lots of more.  Don’t try to do everything that appeals to you, and don’t make your decisions in haste.  Sit back and relax and have actually fun planning your the landscaping for your house and garden
