Landscaping can be a major aesthetic attraction for a home, but it can also be an eye sore. For a beautiful landscape design in Alpharetta, it's important to consider the kinds of plants you use and how you plant them. At Stoeckig Landscape Group, we have a few helpful tips to help you maximize your landscaping.
One of the most important things you need to do is find out which plants, flowers, ground covers, and trees thrive in Alpharetta. Be sure to pay attention not only to what thrives in Georgia's climate, but also to what plants will thrive in full sun, partial sun, and shade. You should also consider what season of the year certain plants and flowers blossom. It's a good idea to have blossoming plants throughout the year and not all at once. Lastly, consider how tall and wide the plants and trees will grow, so you aren't surprised by an overgrown tree or bush taking over a walkway or window.
Landscape contractors in Alpharetta know that one of the worst things you can do is to just start planting things you like in your yard. There should be at least a simple landscape plan to make the whole look work cohesively. A few simple tips include using varying heights, colors, and textures to create interest. Ground covers work fantastic on slopes, around tree roots, and filling in holes between larger trees and plants. Hedges can be used as fences to muffle noise or provide privacy. Perennial and annual flowers work well in a dedicated garden space or as filler between manicured shrubs.
