Jennifer Miree Cope's Landscape Design Tips to Be Exclusively Featured on Business News Ledger

Jennifer Miree Cope, a graduate of Vanderbilt University and a landscape design specialist, is excited to publish her essential landscape design tips online.

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, February 1, 2022 / -- Landscape design specialist Jennifer Miree Cope is excited to announce that her landscape design tips will be featured exclusively on Business News Ledger.

Cope, who graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in electrical engineering, is renowned for her passion and talent as a landscape designer.

Redesigning a landscape or creating a new one from scratch can be one of the most rewarding experiences for a homeowner. But, it can also be one of the most frustrating, puzzling, and challenging experiences as well.

That's why Jennifer Miree Cope is sharing four essential tips of landscape design that she believes every homeowner should know before taking on a yard makeover.

She suggests that homeowners should start by deciding not just how they want their yard to look but also how they want it to function. Many homeowners focus only on the first part and ignore the second. Doing so, though, can result in spaces that might look nice but aren't functional for the homeowner. In those cases, the landscape design can go to waste, as the homeowner may not use it at all.

Clearly defining separate spaces is also key to any landscape design. Not only should different parts of the yard have different functions and different looks, but they should have complementary pieces that fit in the space's theme.

This includes not just the plants a homeowner chooses but also any seating, hardscaping, and structures — along with the colors chosen.

Jennifer Miree Cope believes that homeowners also need to consider how they can connect the multiple spaces of their yard. Simple walkways or even stepping stones can help create an open layout for the outside of a home while also inviting people to explore.

Finally, Jennifer Miree Cope says it's essential that all homeowners need to educate themselves on their location, the composition of their soil and what type of sun exposure each part of the yard gets. These three characteristics all factor into how well plants and flowers perform in spaces.

Homeowners may have many options in terms of plants and flowers, but not all of them will thrive in every environment. The USDA publishes a Plant Hardiness Zone Map that will indicate separate growing zones throughout the country. Homeowners should match up the plants they want with their hardiness zone to ensure they will thrive.

Jennifer Miree Cope goes into much more detail about these four essential landscape design tips in her column published on Business News Ledger.
