Perhaps your biggest decision when it comes to landscaping is deciding what to plant. The wisest advice we can give you? Choose perennials, the plants that come back to life every year. Likewise, choose young plants, shrubs and trees, as well as plants that are native to your area. That way, you invest the least amount of money and have the best chance of keeping them alive and never having to replace them. In fact, if you suddenly get the itch to do more landscaping after you’ve tackled these easy landscaping projects (and we hope you do), you can often take pieces of your existing perennials in future years and plant them elsewhere. Talk about stretching your investments!
