A common landscaping mistake that people make is improperly placing plants. You have to remember all the necessary components that support plant growth – the proper sunlight and the amount of exposure. When you purchase a plant, be sure to carefully read the small tag the comes with it. Those tags will give you the proper instructions for that particular plant and will help you place and care for it properly.
Also, when you are planting trees, take into consideration how big the tree could grow and how much space it will need to grow. And last but not least, choose a plant that will look good in your yard all year round.
