How Not To Landscape in Maryland: Part 2.

Continuing our series from last week on common landscaping mistakes, The Atlantic Maintenance Group is here with some more tips on how to steer-clear of easily avoidable landscaping mistakes.landscaping

Poor Plant Positioning

While this is a pretty broad topic that can get into some advanced landscaping, you’d be surprised how many Maryland homeowners ignore some of the most basic principles of plant placement when designing their lawn. Often this is a result of design over time, placing plants as their purchased rather than working from a blueprint, which is why it pays to have a plan and a landscaping company with experience in designing them. It’s important to think about any plant in terms of when and where you’ll be looking at it, it’s fully grown size, and to remember the general principle that large groupings always have more visual payoff than  dispersing plants evenly across a yard.

Premature Pruning

Many amateur Maryland landscapers take great pride in keeping ahead of their bushes and shrubs, running out, shears in hand, when they get the pruning itch. This can often cause plant death or prevent blooming. Make sure to research when the best time to prune your shrubs is and adhere to a schedule, or consider calling a professional landscaping company.
