Is this the first time you have owned your own home? Did you move into one that has just been built, one without a bit of landscaping? If so, maybe you are just now taking care of that. If you are a new homeowner, it is likely that you need ideas for landscaping, right? In addition, you may not own the tools needed to establish your landscaping. If that's the case, from deciding on what kind of a yard you want to arranging for tool rental, here are some ideas that might help you:
Design The Garden On Paper
You may not be a great artist, but you can do simple sketches. Think of buying graph paper and colored pencils and start your design. For example, are you going to want to use flowers from your garden to create arrangements for your home? If so, you might want a rose garden as part of the landscape design. Perhaps you want separate flower beds in strategic areas of your backyard and your front yard. Put those into your sketch.
Do you want a hardscape in at least part of the backyard? Designate that with a brown or gray colored pencil. Add little colored circles where you'll want to place pots of assorted sizes. Maybe you want to build a pond as part of your landscape. Perhaps you want the pond because you will put koi fish in it. Do you want a round pond or one of another shape? When you make that decision, indicate the pond with a blue color that will represent the water in your pond.
Arrange For Tool Rental
You'll probably be spending a bit of money on the things you'll be putting in your landscape. Because of that, maybe now isn't the time to buy tools and other equipment that you'll need for things like building your pond and establishing your hardscape.
With that in mind, consider going to a tool rental store. There you'll find everything from a small cement mixer to wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, and any other tool you'll be using as you establish your beautiful back and front yards. The bonus is that renting tools isn't as expensive as you might think. If you aren't sure which tools you need for the various jobs, don't hesitate to ask the agent at the rental store. They will have the experience and the training to give you some good pointers.
