Landscape Design Tips

Aug 18, 2007
As winter turns to spring and spring turns to summer a popular topic starts to seep into the mind of homeowners everywhere; I need to start working on a landscape design! Although your head might be full of the flowers and plants that you envision around your yard I am going to take this opportunity to discuss the tools that will help you throughout your whole project.

Whether they are stored in the garage or the shed most people have a small stockpile of gardening tools. These stockpiles might include rakes, shovels, ground claws and most likely a pair of old gardening gloves. It is time for you to ask yourself, do I have the tools I will need to keep my lawn healthy and beautiful? If you have some of the above tools then you are definitely on your way to a great landscape design!

Along with the standard tools there are some new and improved gadgets that you might also like for your yard work. Let us take a look at some new apron designs that are now available. There are two that I particularly like, one is similar to a wearable trash bag, and the other has pockets and loops to hold many tools. If you are familiar with yard work then you can immediately see the benefit these two items bring. Imagine going down your row of bushes and clipping off dead branches, then just popping them into your apron instead of bending down each time to put them in a bag. Very easy! When you are done, simply unzip the bottom of the bag and dump the trash, perfect! As with this design the other apron is equally user friendly; once you have hooked all your tools to the apron you have everything with you as you move around the yard. Extremely useful, and sure to be a popular item for people as they create and nurture their landscape designs.

While the aprons are relatively new items you may want to think about replacing those old dusty tools with their new and improved replacements. As you move forward with your beautiful landscape design you want to make sure your tools are up for the work ahead of them. Shovels and rakes now come with cushiony handles and are designed in bright, friendly colors. Pruning shears are designed with easy slide handles and sharper edges for close work. Gloves, the item you will use the most, come in so many colors and shapes it is almost impossible to choose only one pair!

I have provided you with a small scope of thought on the vast market of garden and yard tools that are available. As you move forward with your landscape design I wish you happy working hands and a beautiful yard!
