While some homeowners might look with a bit of envy on that large lot with the expansive lawn, a large area can be hard to keep up. Here's how.
Any open area intended for residential use is going to have it's particular maintenance and upkeep challenges for a homeowner or renter. If it is covered primarily with lawn grass it may be next to impossible to get it looking like a putting green! And it will still need to be mowed, weeded, fertilized, and so on, but on a larger scale than the average lawn.
On the other hand, it may be a mixed terrain property with natural elements such as boulders, shrubs trees and maybe even gullies or ridges. This, of course, presents it's own peculiar trials for the homeowner looking to keep that outdoor area looking manicured, well-kept and inviting.
And when it comes to landscaping, everything has to be approached on a larger scale.
One of the issues is how to go about maximizing, or optimizing, the space that's available to you with a large outdoor area? Unless you really want nothing more than a vast expanse of lawn grass that's an open invitation for battling crabgrass and dandelions, you may consider landscaping.
You may decide that water features or a faux creek is just the thing to dress up an otherwise unspectacular tract of open ground. In fact, having a huge space to work with can often be as frustrating as trying to design a landscaping project for a tiny lot. With all that space it can be overwhelming and offer too many choices.
And, much like a renovation or remodel to your home, any substantial landscaping work will more or less permanently alter to look and shape of your outdoor space. So you want to be certain before you start any significant project work.
Ten Landscaping Ideas to Inspire Your Inner Designer
While there are dozens if not hundreds of options available to you, there is only so much anyone can do with the time, resources and financial budget given them. What's often needed, then, is a bit of creative stirring and inspiration in the form of landscaping ideas.
We have created this handy infographic to do just that!
Once you've determined the general look and feel you are wanting to create, and you know your budget and time-frame, then you should begin to narrow down your landscaping adventure to a small handful of specifics. Keeping it simple, especially for novices, is always advisable.
Managing the Yard Waste from Your Landscaping Work
Another problem with multiple smaller landscaping projects, or one massive project is the sheer volume of debris, junk and yard waste that can be generated. If you have to remove any old or existing lawn grass, for example, you will end up with possibly massive rolls or piles of heavy sod.
In addition, any shrubs, trees and other large plants that are targeted for removal or replacement will take up a huge amount of space in your debris pile. Add to this all the wrapping, packaging, cast off pallets, plastic straps and other debris, and you've got a major yard waste pile.
Depending on the extent of your excavating and clearing of spaces, you may also create large amounts of mud and loose soil, rocks and other natural elements that are slated for removal.
You can clean up, load, and haul all this yourself if you have a truck or can rent one. But you will, of course have to do all the heavy lifting - twice - and possibly have to make multiple trips to whatever landfill or waste facility you can make use of. And there will be fees.
On the other hand, you can make life easier on yourself and simply hire out this work to a firm that specializes in yard waste removal. Once you decide to outsource your yard waste and outdoor junk hauling, you’ll need to determine which firm is the right one for the job.
The good news is that you can hire the hauling pros at Junk King to get rid of the mess quickly and easily, allowing you to get back to enjoying the season and your rejuvenated outdoor area.
