    Landscaper: What would you like?

    Me: This.

    Landscaper: This is a screenshot of a youtube video?

    Me: Yes. Yes it is.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    Nice ideas & video, but as usual its mostly for larger acreage (because $ellers love the big $ale), but I wish someone would do/show ideas for average homes that most people have. Most of us are do-it-yourself-ers because we can't afford pros or 'estate' gardens; but we like our lil homes to look good too.

    Cheers for the Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you considered – Patlarny Fit Yourself Principle (do a search on google)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for starting your own landscaping business minus the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my close friend Aubrey at very last got great results with it.
