LANDSCAPE DESIGN MADE EASY
The weeds and dirt in New Mexico is just so darn stressful. You need to keep your yard looking good but there is just too much darn work involved so you end up ignoring it and instead look at it every day when you leave for work.
Spring comes and you're excited about the yard again, you buy plants, plant them water. A few months go by, the summer heat comes and now the plants are dead or dying.
Frustrated you wonder what happened. Do I have a brown thumb? Why is this so hard.
Imagine going to that same plant nursery the first of Spring armed with a Landscape Plan and a plant list. You are confident of what species to buy, how many you need and the steps you need to do to keep them alive.
Fast forward to Fall and you're spending your September evenings relaxing outdoors after work with a beer enjoying your yard.
Wouldn't that be great?.
For years I worked on designing parks for the City, large scale commercial and neighborhood planning projects. My friends kept asking me how to get a beautiful yard for themselves. They were always worried about what it would cost to get a landscape plan. They started to wonder if they even deserved to have a nice yard. They'd say landscape plans were only for people who could hire a gardner to take care of the designed yard or for people who had hours of extra time to spend working in their yard.
I kept thinking it shouldn't be this way and I started to focus on how I could teach them to have the beautiful yard at a price they could afford. Fast forward 4 years and a ton of work later and this course was created.
I now hear stories from them about how their life has changed now that they have the yard they dreamed of. They're thrilled to unearth new potentials in their yard.
This fills my heart with happiness!
When we look at other people’s awesome yards we assume, they must be out there all the time. You don’t have the free time to be out there pulling weeds. How is that even possible?
Then you think…they must have a gardener. Yes, that’s it.. they have someone taking care of their yard for them.
But that’s not in your budget, so what are your options?
These thoughts ran through my head all the time, I thought it was impossible for me to have a low maintenance yard. Finally, I put those thoughts behind me and found a solution and now I can’t believe I lived so long with that ugly yard.
Being new to New Mexico back in 1999 I knew the city was promoting waterwise yards. All everyone talked about was xeriscaping and saving water. When tackling my own yard I feared using too much water. I didn’t want to be THAT wasteful person.
You assume the only reason other people’s yards look good is cause they are using tons of the precious resource. You feel so guilty about the water. How do you know if you are using too much?
What does it take to get a plant to grow? I discovered a strategy for landscaping my yard that even the water company is happy about! I know because they actually show me as a “water wise” customer on my monthly bill!
That yard you covet, it must have cost a fortune. So you think you need to save up money before you start.
When did we decide landscapes are expensive? Have we asked our neighbors what they spent on their yard? Did we call a contractor and get a price or is it that when we go to Home Depot we notice that plants are $12 a pop so imagining an entire yard of plants has us freaking out.
Chances are that yard you covet was built a few dollars at a time.
Here is what I learned, the best thing about landscape is that time is your best friend. Oh and it’s not all about the $12 plants. There are so many possibilities in your backyard that exist without spending a dime.
Why does it take so long for plants to grow?
Why is my yard just dirt and weeds?
Can I even grow things when I have dogs?
Where do I even begin?
I don’t even go in my yard anymore because I can’t stand to look at it.
It’s taken me five years just to figure out how to get this one area to grow.
Why even bother, I spend money on plants each year that die.
I’m barely at my house let alone have time to water a garden.
I’m so overwhelmed by the idea of doing something.
One day, I’ll get someone to draw up a plan when I can afford it.
t can be so frustrating spending money on plants that die or outdoor furniture that gets bleached out by the sun.
