If you are tackling you’re landscaping maintenance yourself, make sure you avoid the following three landscaping design mistakes.

1. Are you overwatering your lawn?

Let’s admit it – almost everyone does it without even realizing it! Most lawns only need 1″ of water each week, and for most climates, keeping it damp during the middle of the day in the summer is usually all it needs.

2. Are you cutting your lawn too short?

A lot of people love mowing their lawns. Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh-cut grass? As part of photosynthesis, your lawn needs to produce sugar and allow sensitive roots to be exposed to sunlight. This is the only way your lawn will grow and keep its shiny, green appearance. Cutting your lawn too short ruins and shocks it.

3. Are you skipping high-maintenance landscape projects?

Just because you want to save a few bucks, you know how much time and effort you’re going to put into your yard. High-maintenance landscaping projects, like tree landscaping, require a lot of time and energy. Neglect will not be an option. Focus on species that require the amount of time you are willing to put in.
