BENEFITS OF LANDSCAPINGThe landscaping around your home should match your lifestyle;it should be functional and enjoyed by all.ADDED VALUEProfessional landscaping canhelp to boost the overall valueof your property. Houses withbeautiful landscapes attractmore buyers when it istime to sell.OUTDOORENTERTAINMENT AREASA well planned landscape will make surethat you have space for all the typesof entertainment you enjoy, be it outdoordining with your friends and family,or a sports space for the kids.VISUAL STATEMENTA home will not look complete unlessit has a landscape that complementsthe house. Landscaping your gardenmay soften the house walls, highlightcertain elements, or hideunattractive features.MANAGING WITH MICRO-ENVIRONMENTA well-planned landscape will ensure you have the right plant selection forthe right areas. This plant selection helps to mitigate some of the effects ofthe environment, for example reducing wind and road noise, and also considersthe house position and any drainage or light issues there may be.

THINGS TO CONSIDERBefore you decide to landscape your property, answering these questions may helpyou to pin-point the landscape style, features, plants and other elements you want foryour garden. This also helps you to think about issues that you would like to addresswith landscaping, such as privacy, soil conditions, drainage, microclimate, noise, wind,sun or connectivity. Landscape design can help to mitigate them all!STYLE OF LANDSCAPE DESIGNThink about what kind of garden style you would like to see in your own backyard. Do you want a lot ofsoft textures with perennials and flowers of cottage style gardens, or do you want your garden to beinfluenced by the nearby coast? Maybe you enjoy a formal look with straight lines and neutral colours.Other design styles include Japanese, tropical, modern, art deco, Mediterranean, and let’s not forgetthe edible garden. The possibilities are endless.HOW ARE YOU PLANNING TO USE YOUR LANDSCAPE?How many kids have you got? Are they dreaming of their own trampoline or do they enjoy runningaround the lawn playing sports? Do you want a pool, or will you be using your garden for outdoorentertaining? Do you have pets, and do they need a space of their own in your garden scheme?HOW ARE YOU PLANNING TO USE YOUR LANDSCAPE?Are you planning to have family gatherings every weekend in your backyard? Are you dreaming ofenjoying a soak in a spa pool under the starry sky? Are you a gardener who loves growing your ownfruit and vegetables?6/7

PLANT OPTIONSWhat kind of plants do you like? You don’t need to specify the botanical names of theplants, just think about plant features. Do you like a lot of flowers in your garden or are youa two-colour person? Would you like to see a lot of textures in your plants? Do you wantto have fruit trees? Would you like to see birds in your garden? Do you want plants thatrequire little maintenance? We can help you to choose the right plants for your needs.TIME CONTRAINTSBe honest with yourself when we ask how much time you are you willing to invest intoyour garden. You can have a beautiful and functional garden whether you are willing tospend half an hour a month or ten hours. The plant experts at Oderings Landscapingwill tailor the plant selection so you get not only what you want, but also what you need.MAKE A PRIORITY LISTIt’s a great time to start making a list to help you prioritise the elements you want to seein your garden. Call them your ‘Must Haves’ and ‘Nice to Haves’. If you have kids, your‘Must Haves’ may include a fort, sand pit or a trampoline, or if you enjoy a soak your‘Must Haves’ might include a spa on a deck under a pergola with climbing plants. Your‘Nice to Have’ list may include outdoor lighting or raised veggie gardens. Make the listand let’s make your perfect garden a reality.BUDGET CONSIDERATIONNow that you’ve listed all your ‘Must Haves’, make sure you establish a budget. Havingyour budget set will also help you to prioritise things in your landscape

PLANNING AHEADThere are things to check off and consider when building.ACCESSRemember that for the landscape of your dreams to come true, access to your backyard isimportant. Are there elements, such as fences, that may block off the access to your garden?Can they be erected after the landscaping for the backyard is done?GARDEN FEATURES AND WHAT THEY NEEDSome landscape features require electricity or a water supply for them to function. Even if youare thinking of having a spa pool one day, put a conduit under your to-be-built concrete patio.This will make it much easier for a spa pool to be connected in the future. The same appliesif you are thinking of irrigation on the other side of your driveway. No one wants to rip upa section of concrete, so think where you may need water, not just now, but into the future.Think of functionality before hardscaping. Now is also the time to put in outdoor power pointsand outdoor water access with taps, making sure you have access to these at both the frontand back of the section.MAINTENANCEDo you have elements that would be easier to mow with a mowing strip around them?Do you want to have boxing around your garden areas for easy maintenance?Consider these things now to make life easier later.8/9

IRRIGATIONDo you want irrigation to be installed? Now is also the time to put inoutdoor water access with taps and conduits. Make sure you havewater that is accessible at both the front and the back of your section.POWERIt may not seem important now, but if you intend to put a spa pool,outdoor lighting or even a water feature into the garden at somestage, you can save time and money by having outdoor power pointsinstalled when building.SERVICESDon’t forget the ‘untidy’ things that you need to have in your garden.Areas for wheelie bins, a clothesline, the garden shed, and theunsightly heat pump units! A well-planned landscape design canhelp to find the right place for all these services without them being‘eyesores’ in your garden.COUNCIL REGULATIONS/COVENANTSKeep in mind the do’s and don’ts for your district and subdivision.Let us know what they are. Are there any easements running withinyour property? Are there any underground services?
