Your landscape plays a vital role in enhancing the curb appeal of your home. Changing your landscape design can significantly increase the resale value of your home. It can also boost your home’s functionality and give you the change you are looking for. However, landscape resigning involves time and monetary investment, so to get the best out of your investment, you need to consider all the essential factors before starting the project.

Here are some crucial factors you should consider when planning your landscape redesign

Know your landscape

Before you redesign your landscape, it is essential to understand the existing landscape. You need to understand the soil type, the climatic conditions, space availability, topography, and microclimate of your landscape. These factors will help you determine the best themes and position for each element in your new landscape.

Identify the users

Whenever you redesign your yard, you need to consider who and what you will use your landscape the most for. If you use it most for entertaining, you can consider adding elements like a patio or an outdoor kitchen while redesigning. You can also segment your landscape into different sections and create spaces to meet multiple uses. 

Select a theme

Every design has a thought process or an idea behind it that creates a theme.  Having a theme will help you easily choose the rest of the elements for your landscape. When selecting a theme, the best place to take inspiration from is your home’s architecture. Choose something that complements and elevates your home’s design. 

Create interconnection system

The trick to achieving a good landscape design is a network seamlessly connecting every segment. You need to consider creating pathways that connect each part without disturbing the theme and provide more functionality to your yard.

Introduce plants into your design

Landscapes come to life with plants and trees. However, you need to integrate them into your design without overshadowing other elements and decreasing your landscape’s functionality.

Maintaining your plants and other living elements should also be an essential consideration as they require more time and effort. So choose that work well with all the features and can look good in multiple seasons. 

Get the details right

It is rightly said that the devil is in the details. For your revamped landscape to look its best, you need to get the minute details right. Whether it’s the ornaments or hardscaping elements or lighting everything, you need to consider each element’s interaction and the visual harmony they create. 

Think of the future

You must consider that some trees and plants would be a part of your landscape for several years. And as they grow, they will change shape and form. You need to consider how you will integrate them into your landscape as they grow.
