When it comes to curb appeal, your landscape is equally as important as your home. Even the most beautiful house won’t look as good if it is placed atop a dead lawn with deteriorating decorations.

If you are looking to maximize your landscaping appeal, here are three common mistakes which you must avoid.

Mowing Mistakes

Cutting your grass isn’t as simple as cutting your grass. Mowing your lawn is a science, and one you need to follow closely if you want the best results. There is a best time of the day to mow your lawn, a best technique for doing it, a best height to cut your grass, and more. Here are some tips to keep in mind the next time you start up your lawnmower.

Planting Too Deep

Many people make the mistake of planting their trees, flowers, and shrubs too deep in the ground. The thought is, the more soil the better, but this is not always the case. Submerging your plant too far can prevent oxygen from reaching the roots and cause the plant to die more quickly.

Not Using the Right Supplies

Your landscape will only be as good as the supplies you use to build it. Using cheap supplies will result in a cheap look that will likely not last as long as if you used high-quality materials.
