A beautiful landscape immediately elevates the aesthetic appeal of your property. Many tend to think that landscaping is like a walk in the park. What is there to do anyway? Mow the grass and plant some attractive plants, and there you go, you have a beautiful front yard. But unfortunately, if it were that easy, you would not need landscaping professionals for patios. While there are several blogs and articles about how to do landscaping if you are attempting it yourself without any prior experience, only a few people talk about the mistakes that first-timers tend to commit. Here, we are going to tell you the common landscaping that you need to avoid at all cost!
Avoid cutting the grass in your lawn too low
Do not attempt to turn your patio into a golf course because you will be doing a lot of harm to the plants instead. When you cut the grass too low, since more than half of the leaves surface is removed, the plant will have difficulty performing photosynthesis, which is vital for the plants to grow healthy. This will result in weak plants with even weaker roots.Try to keep the grass level at least three inches or a minimum of a two and a half inches.
This is something that the majority of people are guilty of doing. Not all plants require constant watering. It entirely depends on what kind of a plant you have, because different plants have different needs for watering and type of soil in your lawn.
Bad pruning habits can do more harm to your plant than you can imagine. Also, if you do not know the proper techniques of pruning and attempt to experiment, your landscape will end up looking unpleasant. The basic rule of pruning is to cut the top of the plants, avoiding pruning during the fall season, and pruning only 15 per cent of the plant in one session.

We chose Parklane following a recommendation and during the initial consultation, we stressed that we needed the work completed by a set date due to a very important 40th Birthday party we had planned, no pressure!!! The owner, Dan was honest with us and promised he would complete the job on time but this would require them completing the work in stages which we were happy with and also completely understood due to us leaving the request to the last minute, top tip as they are a busy company, consult with them early as they are in demand!!! As promised the work was completed on time and the finished product is amazing. The team that completed the work were friendly, neat and professional. I even caught one of them washing the front of the house after mixing some mortar which was not expected and shows their pride. The end product rendered us speechless, we were so pleased with the result and the reactions from our party guests were as expected, everyone wanted Parklanes number… I would fully recommend Parklane and we are completely satisfied with their work.
