FAQ 4 - What is the best way to get started with my landscaping

Answer 4 - The first thing you should do is get an exact measurement of the area of your yard you're wanting to landscape. Write it down on paper and draw a rough outline of your yard and mark any areas where there are underground cables or water pipes.

Make a sketch of all the different areas in your yard and mark their characteristics down on paper. Write down which area gets the most sun, which gets the most shade, which area has poor soil or drainage.

This will all help decide what you can do with that area.
