Do you ever wonder if you are doing things right in your landscape?
If a plant or tree doesn’t look too well, do you wonder if it is something you are doing wrong?
When I am called to do a landscape consultation, my client usually has a primary concern. But, part of my job is to also look at the landscape as a whole and point out other problems – hopefully before they affect the plant negatively.
So, I decided to start posting photos of problems I have spotted during consults in hopes that I can help you too.
Below, are two pictures of a very common landscape mistake that I see constantly. Usually the homeowner/client has no idea that they are doing anything wrong.
Can you tell what is wrong?
It isn’t always super obvious…
I’d love to hear what you think is wrong – just send me a comment, below.
I’ll post about this ‘landscape no-no’ and what problems it causes and how to correct it in my next post 🙂Noelle Johnson, aka, 'AZ Plant Lady' is a author, horticulturist, and landscape consultant who helps people learn how to create, grow, and maintain beautiful desert gardens that thrive in a hot, dry climate.
