Going to be killed for fearful and shut down, pretty small 4 months old baby crying for help

When searching for backyard landscaping ideas, always start with your family. Make sure it's designed for everyone to enjoy and not just for one individual. Far to often we hear complaints from spouses and other family members that they wanted it done differently. Your family is the most important aspect of the decision process and should be thought of first and foremost. Now that we all understand what is the single most important aspect of it all, let's get to it.

There are some really good landscaping designs for you to consider, but first let's start with a few landscaping basics. As I stated earlier, it all begins with your family. The trick is to design a plan that is best for everyone while taking into consideration the size and the type of yard that you have.

An excellent starting point for your backyard landscaping ideas & designs should include the use of evergreens. Lots of folks like to use deciduous trees in their yards and that is okay. However, there are some basic facts you should know before you begin.

Deciduous trees will definitely add vibrate colors to your landscape in the spring and summer. They will also add beautiful foliage to your lawn in early fall. Then their leaves will fall off as the tree prepares to sleep through the long winter months.This will leave your once flourishing tree looking bare and boring. The very definition of deciduous means to shed or fall off during certain parts of the life cycle.

Evergreens on the other hand will continuously look great. They will be as beautiful and pretty in the winter time as they are in the summer. When you realize some of the benefits they offer, you will like them even more. Some people really believe a home owner would be foolish not to include them in their landscaping plans and designs. I happen to be one of them.

Let's take a quick look at a few of the many benefits of adding evergreens to your backyard landscape design. I think when you get done reading them you will come away with the same thoughts as me. Evergreens are something homeowner's would be foolish not to plant when doing their landscape.

If you are looking for a privacy screen, then planting an evergreen is perfect for you. Living walls make for good neighbors and beautiful lawns. If you live where winters can be harsh, evergreens make for awesome windbreaks. Plant them strategically around your yard and you just blocked out old man winter.

Want to add some character to your landscape, or go for that stately look, you can achieve this by simply planting some evergreens in your yard. Some homeowners like to plant evergreens uniformly as to create a look of elegance. Whatever you decide you cannot go wrong with evergreens.

Other excellent backyard landscaping ideas for you to consider will be the use of hardscaping. For anyone not familiar with the term, it simply means adding non-living materials to your landscape. Examples would be rocks, fences, ponds, fountains, patios, decks, etc.

A major benefit of hardscaping is that it is not conditional to weather.Your landscape will look great throughout the entire year. Another huge benefit is your property value. When done right, hardscaping can be real assets to a homeowners bottom line if they are thinking of selling one day.

When you decide to have your property undergo landscaping, you should consider not only the final appearance and the total project cost of the project, but also how demanding the maintenance will be. And this is not something that you should put into your second priority. Because you no doubt are a busy homeowner, time is always of the essence, thus you need a landscape design that does not demand you to pay more time that you have. You need a low-maintenance landscape design plan!

Here are six tips to help you plan a low-maintenance landscape design.

1. Buy High-Quality, Long-Lasting Landscape Materials

If you are trying to limit your budget, you may end up purchasing cheap landscape materials. Inexpensive is okay as long as they are of high-quality and long lasting. But in most cases, you get what you pay for. And if you purchase cheap landscape material, you may end up spending more in the long run. Buy high-quality and long-lasting landscape materials right from the beginning - those that do not require frequent replacement. Fences, sidewalks, seating structures, furniture, steps, decks, patios, trellises, and gazebos should be sturdy and durable.

2. Keep Your Lawn Area to a Minimum

Landscaped yards with lawns are beautiful. But lawns can be expensive and high-maintenance. Raking and edging consumes an incredible amount of money and time, not to mention the regular liming, fertilizing, mowing, watering, rolling, thatching, and application of pesticides just to keep a lawn well maintained. Use plants, ground covers, shrubs, and easy-to-care-for trees to substitute for the excessive open lawn space.

A good low-maintenance alternative to lawn is moss. Moss can adapt to areas where grass refuses to grow. Another low-maintenance grass alternative is clover. Clovers are a cost-effective, insect-resistant, and drought-tolerant ground cover and an excellent alternative for grass.

3. Avoid High-Maintenance or Problem Plants

Live oak, red maple, butterfly bush Virginia willow, dwarf bamboo, sedum, gardenias, rain lilies - these are some of the hard-to-maintain trees, shrubs, perennials, and ground covers you'll want avoid. Instead, look for landscape plants that can adapt to extreme temperature; are more tolerant to dry or wet periods; more resistant to fungal problems, disease, and insects; and more adaptive to poor soil conditions.

4. Consider a Rock Garden

Instead of using greens, why not use grays? A rock garden is an ideal substitute for high-maintenance plants, shrubs, lawns, and even trees. Rock gardens do not require regular trimming, mowing, watering, etc.

5. Place Plants in Masses

Planting in masses not only assures that the plants grow densely and consistently but also makes mowing and trimming edges easier. These plant groupings can also obscure less-than-lovely fences, views of neighbors, or bins.

6. Place the Right Size Plants in the Right Places

Tall trees or large plants placed underneath electrical and utility lines, sheds, home windows, and doorway entries often need constant pruning to prevent them from exceeding the desired height and thickness. The problem is, during the planning, this is not thought about because any tree or plant is yet to be seen as a problem. Nonetheless, it is important to know the characteristics of the plants that you are planning to use in your landscape design. Ask the nursery owner for plants that grow within your desired height.
