Making a list of your needs and wants is extremely important before you get started. You should spend plenty of time thinking about all things you want or need from your landscaping and ask yourself as many questions as you can. Do want a garden? Do you need a space for your children to play? Do you want a patio? With furniture and a BBQ? If you don’t ask, you won’t know. Can’t wait to get started?
