Common Landscaping Mistakes

Many people don’t realize that landscaping is an art form. It takes skill, patience and aptitude to create lush landscapes that captivate droves of onlookers.

Because of this misconception,  most people tend to make common blunders with their yard.

Common landscaping mistakes

  • Conserving water by watering the lawn during evenings:  This is a baseless belief that has no concrete evidence behind it.   Cooler soil will not absorb a lot of water at night. Water only stays at the surface, making it a breeding ground for disease and fungus to germinate.
  • Maintaining a short lawn so landscaping will be easier: Keeping your lawn short will compromise your landscape. The photosynthesis process is greatly hindered by short grass since it exposes the sensitive roots to direct sunlight. Keep your grass tall so it will get more nutrients and help safeguard a resilient landscape.
  • Doing it all by yourself: Many people believe they can manage their lawns sans any help from professional contractors.  By refusing any help from top-notch landscapers, like Lehnhoff’s Landscaping, you leave your lawn susceptible for future problems.  Lehnhoff’s Landscaping is skilled in installation and plumbing for waterworks and we accrue results that are incomparable to a novice in the field.
