Could your yard use a little landscaping makeover? While 67% of Americans responded to a recent survey by Harris Poll for the National Association of Landscape Professionals saying they agree that professional landscaping would help them have a better yard, DIY projects can give you the same results. With the right landscape supplies, a little research, and some patience, you can have a beautiful yard you can be proud to say you did yourself.You could do it yourself; you could go to the garden store, plant a few flowers, and call it a day. But what you have in mind is a little, shall we say, lower maintenance. Plants and shrubs, a fresh mowed lawn: You’d be amazed at what a little landscaping can do for your curb appeal. There’s more to it than that (and this may appeal to the Manassas VA homeowners among us without green thumbs).
Vegetation is important, but it’s only one piece of a larger landscaping puzzle.
We’re talking about hardscaping. Where flowers and bushes are considered softscaping, hardscaping has to do with the non-living elements of landscaping design, including paved walkways, walls, patios, features, and rocks. It is these hardscape elements that make up the foundation and anchor of any good residential landscape.
