Debunking Common Landscaping Myths

Widespread misconceptions about landscaping have led more than one homeowner who tried to take the DIY approach astray–but with a few tips from the pros you can avoid falling into these traps and achieve the landscape of your dreams.

Landscaping Myths

Myth: Professional Landscaping Is Unnecessary

Many homeowners think landscaping is a simple task they can handle on their own. While it’s true that most people can handle mowing and planting by themselves, the opportunities provided by a professional landscaping company like us can make the difference between a yard that looks nice and one that is truly breathtaking.

Your outdoor living space affects your home’s curb appeal. By working with a professional like Lifestyle Landscapes, you can dramatically boost your home’s beauty and function. We can help you design and build a beautiful outdoor living space that you and your family can enjoy for many years.

Myth: All Landscaping Is Good Landscaping

Although leaving your lawn completely untouched is not advisable, trying to take on too much landscaping on your own without professional help can also backfire. For example, one common mistake homeowners make is planting trees and shrubs too close to the home, which can result in insect infestations, fallen branches on the roof, and other problems.

When you work with an experienced contractor like Lifestyle Landscapes, you won’t have to worry about these issues.
