Planning the Landscaping for a New Home Part 4

Not sure how to do the landscaping for a new home the right way? You’ve come to the right place!

Here is a basic list of everything you will need for your home’s landscaping:

  • Grass, trees, and plants — This one sort of goes without saying! You need all the green plants to make your yard beautiful, and these are probably the most critical elements of your landscaping.
  • Irrigation system — In order to keep all of your plants and trees alive, you need some way to water them. Before the grass or trees are installed, the irrigation system must be in place.
  • Lighting — Yes, lighting does matter for your landscaping! You may not install lights on the yard, but a few perimeter lights around the property and the outside of the house can help to enhance curb appeal while beefing up security.
  • Extras — This includes decks, patios, gazebos, swimming pools, and any other external elements that are added onto the house.

These are the things you need to take into account when planning your landscaping.

One very important thing to keep in mind: all plants, trees, shrubs, and grasses will need time to set. It’s important to have them planted near the beginning of the landscaping process, as that will ensure that they grow well.

Make sure your landscaper schedules a few more visits in the near future. You’ll want them to check on your lawn and yard to ensure that everything is growing and setting properly, and that no heavy rains or snowfall will damage your yard. It’s vital that you stay in communication with your landscaper to keep your yard in good condition early on in the landscaping process.


Follow these tips, and you’ll have your home looking wonderful in no time!
