If possible have your soil tested and look for areas with drainage issues. This will help you decide which plants go where.

Make sure to do some research on Sarasota landscaping so you will know which plants do well in shade and sun and which plants do well with little water and heavy water. Again this will help you make your decisions about plant locations for specific beds.

When choosing plants put them into three categories. Trees, shrubs, and ground-cover plants are the most common categories for plant life. Pay attention to how much room they will need to grow and expand as well as water, sun, and shade requirements. Plant them accordingly. Use plenty of mulch to keep weeds away. Mulch also looks very attractive and will allow your plants to grow easily.

Make your plant beds visually attractive through the use of color, texture, and location. You will want your plants to look good and stay healthy. Make sure they blend together and can survive through the environment you create. Do not be afraid to ask for help from your professional experts wherever you purchase your plant life. Make sure to allow for walkways, dog runs, patio areas, and play areas. This is why it is important to map out your entire landscaping project.

Try to learn as much as you can about bird life, bees, insects, and pests in relationship to the plants, shrubs, and trees you may use. Place taller plant life in the back and the shorter plant life in the front. Make sure to estimate spacing and allow for plenty of growth room and mulching zones. Do not over-crowd your plant life. If is easy to go back and fill-in needed areas versus taking plants out because of crowded conditions.
