Planning, ingenuity and patience will help keep green in your wallet as well as your yard. Avoid costly mistakes: really think about how you're going to use your outdoor space for the long run. Know when it is time for a change: Old, overgrown plantings that block views of the front door or spill on to walkways make your home and entrance dated and uninviting. Work with your assets: Preserve existing plants and trees when possible - only when they will enhance a new design. Hire yourself: The best way to save money in landscaping is to do as much of the work as possible yourself- and to know when the work is beyond your abilities. Know when to hire the pros. Having a professionally designed plan for your yard will enable you to accomplish your overall project in stages-without costly, improper plant decisions of installation woes.
