For a landscape design to be successful it must continue to function as the years pass. It is imperative to plant "the right plant for each individual site in your landscape." A well planned and harmonious landscape adds value to a property; however, a poorly planned landscape may actually reduce its potential selling price. It is important to put careful consideration into the layout of your landscape to achieve the effect you wish.
The table below describes what are considered to be the top five common mistakes in landscape plantings (adapted from "Landscape Design" by Greg Davis, Ph.D., in Master Gardener Update, September 1994).
Over Planting: Small trees and shrubs are often planted too close together to get a "full" look. The result several years later is a crowded landscape. Plants must be removed or drastically pruned to reduce competition.
Resist the temptation to have an "instant landscape." Know the mature size of plants and give them room - and time - to grow.
Plants are planted too close to the house: Plants too close to the house have an unattractive "cramped" look. They also create a maintenance nightmare when it is time to repair or paint the house.
