Landscape design is equal parts vision and hard work. Knowing how to do something is only half the battle. Knowing WHAT to do – having a blueprint in your mind of what you want your yard or garden to look like is the key to doing something extraordinary. If you are short on inspiration, here are a couple of our favorite blog spots to get inspired.
