If you don’t have a big budget, hire someone to do a landscape design and then install it yourself in stages.
That will keep you from making costly mistakes, like putting plants in the wrong spot.
However, here are some DIY home projects you should probably leave to the pros.
Bushes and spruce trees planted at the end of your driveway may look nice…
…but they can block your view of oncoming traffic. Keep your line of sight clear.
One thing I’ll never understand: people who spend thousands on their new landscapes
…and then neglect to water them. It happens all the time.
