First, you will want to create a focal point. Start with a great patio, fire pit or possibly an outdoor kitchen. Next plan your vegetation, trees are the best way to start. Adding in shrubs and perennials to compliment the design. Consider your neighbors and how you may want to create privacy. Pinnacle Gardens staff is very knowledgeable and can help with the design, placing the right plant in the right spot. When you place the right plant in the right spot you ensure plants establish a healthy root system and steady top growth.

Some things you may want to consider are specific soil conditions and the type of sun exposure your yard receives. One of the best things you can do for your new vegetation is to amend the soil. You will need to add a good tree and shrub mix and possibly some compost, especially if you are living in a new home where construction has recently been completed. It’s also important to understand the water needs of your trees, shrubs and perennials. Make sure you have an adequate irrigation system with adjustable drip lines to your plants. Planning is the key to success. With the proper ground work and a little digging in you can create an outdoor living space for years of enjoyment.
