We usually like to stay positive on our blogs, but there are just some backyard mistakes we can't help but shake our heads at!

AtGroundscapes , we bringover 20 years of experience working with some ofthe finest commercial enterprises in the Omaha Metro and La Vista area . During that time, we've learned a thing or two from our partners about the importance of (luxury) landscaping for your business and the impact it can have on your customers and employees. Especially as October approaches, we don't want to scare you too much with these big mistakes, but fear not, for it all ends happily. Just keep reading!!

1. Tree Maintenance

Our favorite feeling is sitting inside on a cozy, stormy fall evening sipping a cup of tea and reading a book.....only to hear a large crash and see a fallen tree in your backyard!! The damage alone done to your luxury backyard is atrocious, but it all could have been prevented! By properly landscaping your trees around your luxury backyard and paying attention to placement and maintenance, your trees will stand firm during the fall season!! Sleep soundly without worries of damaged patios, collapsed outdoor structures, or ruined firepits! (Oh my!)

2. Ignoring the Design

Aesthetic is half of comfort, and a beautiful, clean, and appealing backyard is what makes it so luxurious! We've seen too many horridly bland backyards to ever let that happen to you! By adding water features, firepits, mood lighting, and unique patio designs to your landscape, you can make the whole backyard a magical space. It's important to not forget the outer edges of your landscape, and pay attention to the hedges and grass. Need inspiration? Head over to our Instagram :)

3. Letting the Landscape Go

We often think of summer as the season for mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges, and weeding the garden, and ignore our landscape when fall comes around. Believe us, you do not want to let this happen in your backyard. In fact, fall is one of the most important seasons for thorough landscaping, when leaves are scattered all over the yard, some plants start to look a bit peaky, and the grass can become sad and gray. With the help of some Groundscapes luxury landscaping, we can help keep your landscape in tip top shape to compliment your fall themed backyard and aesthetic. Don't let the season keep you inside- a Groundscapes backyard is fit for all year round.

We hope we didn't frighten you too much with these big backyard mistakes, but in our defense it is almost October!
