Are you the type of person that notices what is wrong more then what is right?
Although I would describe myself as having an outlook as a “glass half-full” and tend to observe the positive – it doesn’t carry over when I look at landscapes.
I think that it is because I am supposed to find problems and help people avoid or fix them.
A few weeks ago, I shared my first “Landscape No-No” post, which showcased a common mistake people make with drip emitter placement and trees.
My hope is that by sharing some “Landscape No-No’s” that I will be able to help you avoid making the same mistakes in your garden.
This time, I am showing you a picture from a landscape consult that I did a few years ago.
This featured “Landscape No-No” is from a consult I did years ago. The homeowner was very excited to show me his newly landscaped front yard.
However, I did find a few problems, including this one along the pathway to his entry…
Torch Glow Bougainvillea
Can you tell what is wrong?
Hint: The plant in the middle is a ‘Torch Glow’ Bougainvillea.
I would love to hear your thoughts about what the problem is in the area above.
Please come back for a visit next time, when I will explain why this is a “Landscape No-No” and show you another photo of another problem with this newly landscaped garden.
I hope you all have a great start to your week!
