Excerpt from Report:

"In the Beginning...

In the planning phase for your new house you and your designer will prepare a 'plot plan' of the property where you will build. The plot plan shows the shape and dimensions of your lot and the position and size of your house and possibly your walks and drives. Once the house is positioned on the plot plan, all the area around the structure becomes the province of what is called your landscape plan.

Your landscape plan allows you to specify all the uses to which you will put your land. At this early stage, anything is possible, and by forethought many things are practical.

- Where to Get Help

In the U.S. your County Extension Agent is a great help in preparing a landscape plan. We found that our Agent taught a public class on landscape planning, and offered books, materials, and advice to the public. Once we had something on paper, our agent reviewed our plan and made valuable suggestions.

We found many valuable aids at our local home center store. (Home Depot, Lowe's, lumbeyards) There is in each of the home center stores we visit a rack of do-it-yourself literature that includes landscape topics.

Over the months we were planning our home, we found the following free booklets on landscape subjects in the DIY rack: Lightscaping, Plan for Dry Climates, Drip Irrigation, Roses, Annuals and Perennials, Herbs, Home Composting, Organic Vegetable Gardening, Starting a Lawn, Greener Grass, Underground Sprinklers, Turf Care. "...

Sample Reader Tip Excerpts:


"Landscaping - wow, is there a lot of money to be saved there. Rake and seed your own lot, cover your own septic system, rent your own small digger and trench your own water, electric phone lines one weekends work can save you hundreds. You don't have to be a brain surgeon to do these things, you just need the will to save money."

"We are building on the central coast of California, 200 miles from where we live. We planted 55 trees there already with a special irrigation system. The local landscaping guy was recommended to us, and we were able to deal with him by phone and fax without a hitch."
