    Surprisingly good video that gives a lot of ideas on what to think about.

    Outdoor lighting is bad for insects, wildlife, and anything that grows. The only thing it’s good for is Lowe’s bottom line.

    Algun programa para diseñar jardines en 3D???

  16. Cam Anderson on October 16, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Great, I will be using this exact landscape design, as I am not creative enough to make my own😂

  17. Dallas Miller on October 16, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    I’m new to this, but at 1:25 what are those large stone tiles in the yard? Are they just stone tiles? Lol. I’m trying to find some to purchase, but don’t know what to search for.

    Hi, Whilst I am in a private nightmare(😞!) of ‘planning’ out my small garden; with ideas & the practicalities for privacy from close neighbours etc:~after waiting 34yrs & now a small Budget….. Your informative ‘Vid’ was very well received & brought me back to reality! 😁Thank you for sharing. Rosie 🦓

    Please SKIP the landscape lighting. Light pollution is real and is bad for both humans and wildlife.

  21. Conrado FM on October 16, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    nice tips

  23. Bilingual Margarita on October 16, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Normally I’m "ok" at designing but for some reason I’m pretty nervous about the landscape of the front of the house. I have a clean slate with bricks in front and I’m just trying to get the height and placement together … while looking up perennials that do well in the sun/shade. I hope I don’t plant anything that’ll grow to block the window… trying to avoid that

  24. Turjak_art on October 16, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Amazin, thank you

  25. Stev Lopez on October 16, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    If this is a app that they used to make the design in this video, someone please let me know as I need to make a backyard design for a job.

  29. Damian S on October 16, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    This was not helpfull 🙁

  30. Maximized Artistry _ on October 16, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Whats the name of the software you used to create this landscape?

    Beginner gardening tips – enjoy your garden

  32. Atila Matamoros on October 16, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Metal fences with adequate climbers are much better aesthetics. The help other flora/fauna, reduce noise, allow wind flow and provide privacy without the intense hedge maintenance

  33. Mark Hughes on October 16, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Grass tells truth

  34. BeanTaz on October 16, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    2:30 I mean, you could use corn. The odds the ghost of Shoeless Joe Jackson pops out of it at 3AM is trivial.

  35. Selfi O’Path on October 16, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    3:36 night lights are not recommended for gardens based on resilient and biodiverse ecosystem as they mess up insects and birds

  36. The Watcher on October 16, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Thank you.

  37. Mark Hughes on October 16, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Some like gardens some like salvage each there own.

  38. MrElemonator on October 16, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Sunflowers attract bees. Cannabis plants attract the police.

  39. The Suburban Gardenista on October 16, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    You make it sound so simple! Now to give it a try and put it into action! Thanks for the great tips!

  43. Smart Turf on October 16, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    This is great inspiration.

    I know I’m a little late getting into this video, but here goes. As a licensed landscape architect with 44 years of practice, let me suggest a few things when getting started doing a landscape plan for your home. First, find a copy of your property plat map with the surveyed boundaries of your lot and use a copy of that (with a good scale) as your base plan. If you can’t find that, hike down to the county or municipal courthouse and get one from the tax folks, they have all of the property plat maps. Second, check with your utility people to see where all of your utilities enter your property and extend to your house, especially those underground (avoid those when digging). Third, either by sight, experience or by measurement, determine how water flows across your property during a heavy rainstorm, note where there are swales on your property or where water accumulated during a storm. Fourth, determine where the sun rises and sets during each season with respect to your house (which way does your house face? North, south, east, west?) and where large trees or hills might cast shadows on your property. Fifth, be aware of your neighbors’ landscape features, and adjoining streets, streams or public spaces. Now, start writing all of these details on and around your base plat map before starting your landscape design. Then begin to identify (just use blobs) the public, private, maintenance and other zones around your house and the connections between them (walkways, lawn areas, etc.) before you start locating plants and other landscape features (I.e. ponds, decks, patios, play courts, etc.). Then start doing what this video tells you about placing plants and beds. Remember, plants GROW and need some space if they are to reach their full potential, don’t try shearing a sequoia😀 good luck. Oh, if this is a bit too much effort, hire yourself a licensed landscape architect, he or she can do what you need.

  50. N Olafson on October 16, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    I’m having trouble visualizing how I can use this information and after seeing the huge houses and layouts in this video. I’d have to use my yard and two neighbours’ yards or a local park.
