-Add Water Features: Every great landscape has a focal point, and an amazing focal point is any type of water feature, such as a pond or fountain.

Water features don't have to break the bank, either...most home-improvement stores, such as Lowes, have inexpensive options and materials.

-Use Different Forms and Textures: You may be partial to flowers, but a non-flowering bush can add a very interesting look and feel to your layout.

-Make Sure the Yard is As Low Maintenance as Possible! You're creating an amazing landscape, and you want to enjoy it without having to spend every waking second maintaining it!

-Make Sure Your Plants Are Drought-Resistant: You don't want to spend all Spring creating a masterpiece, only to have it wither away during the Summer months.
