The Do's & Don'ts of Landscaping

Landscaping your yard probably seems like a huge, unending job - but it doesn't have to. There are a few things that you do want to have done, and a few things you don't want to do, but it's relatively simple. Of course, if you hire the best landscape company at the Lake of the Ozarks to help you - it's even easier! Here are a few do's and don'ts for planning the landscaping of your yard.

Do Your Research

Do you have specific plants that you want in your landscape? Make sure you do research to make sure they can actually thrive in your landscape. Or, you can count on Paradise Landscaping to help. Our landscape designer, Rich Harris can help you find the perfect blend of plants and trees you'll love, and that will love you!

Don't Think "Small Picture"

While you may be tempted to squeeze ALL of your favorite plants in your one little garden bed - don't. When landscaping, you want to think in "big pictures." Think about how everything will look in the long term, how everything will compliment each other, and if those plants all have the same location requirements.

Do Plant for Long Term

Trees and bushes will get bigger as they grow, and this can cause damage if you aren't planning for the long term. We can help you map our your landscape in a way that works best not only for you and your home but also for your dream trees and bushes!

Don't Let Weeds Invade

Weeds may seem like they're just ugly and annoying, but they can also cause damage to the plants you actually WANT in your yard. Even a "cute" weed, like a dandelion, can take over quickly and take away from the beauty of your perfect turf.

Do Fertilize Your Grass In the Fall

Did you know that your grass will react differently to fertilizer than larger plants? If you want to give your grass the best chance for success, fertilizing it now is the best way. At Paradise Landscaping, we can fertilize grass at the Lake of the Ozarks and keep it looking beautiful and healthy for longer.

Don't Ignore Overgrown Plants

While you may not like to see your giant plants being removed, keep in mind it's for the good of your landscaping and your home. Some overgrown plants don't just crowd out the rest of the garden, but they can also crowd your house, block windows, and even cause property damage. It's better to care for them now than let them get too big and regret it.
