My husband and I have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather and have been working on the landscaping at our home. This is our first experience with landscaping and it is pretty overwhelming when you don't know what you are doing! Unfortunately, we don't have the funds to hire a landscape company to design and do our landscaping, so it's all up to us. And, I know nothing about plants or landscaping.
Thankfully, there are many great resources out there. Here are a few we found helpful:
They have a garden and landscape planner that is extremely user-friendly and helps you visual your plans. You put in your house and yard and it lets you add shrubbery, trees, gardens, patios, etc.
Lots of great information about what plants, flowers and trees grow best in what areas and how to best care for all your landscaping. Also has project ideas for all budgets and types of yards.

I hope these help you!
