Landscaping Tips

When I won a room make-over two years ago, I also felt blessed to have known some interesting tips on landscaping. The landscape architects renovated our lanai and they shared some ways to make a semi-indoor lanai more ventilated.

Since we have a tropical climate, just like Arizona, where being under the sun for several minutes would leave your skin scorched and tanned, I believe applying those tips would make our stay in our gardens more enjoyable. Putting plants that require less sunlight and water fountains are just some of their suggestions.

The landscape architects were just so good that I could have jokingly suggested them landscaping for Arizona! With the raves my lanai got, I wouldn’t be surprised when they go places!

My new home is still unfinished. I don't know if it can get finished. :)

It has a small yard which I tried to transform into a garden. Planted a variety here and there with no landscape plan in mind. Right now, my invention is left with its own devices. And I am at a loss as to how to redesign it. Mahal masyado if I hire a landscaper, kaya tigaya nalang, and bit by bit I would be re arranging it, hoping eventually it will get find its ideal appearance. Irregardless, I enjoy taking my usual rounds early morning and after work, delighted to see a new flower that bloomed. I like my yard to be surrounded with different colors.

Oh, how I wish i have a nicer lanai.

Landscaping is an art which involves manipulating the environment in a certain area to make it look good and presentable. It is commonly associated with gardening. It would be best to hire some professional landscapers to do the job for you.
