Michelle begins the article by expressing the importance of spending money on quality landscaping materials to provide a solid foundation and extend the life of your landscape. First on the list of landscaping luxuries worth the splurge is masonry.
FSI Landscape Supply agrees, “stonework is timeless. It is one of the landscaping elements that will last for many years; it will also match any current trend and complement any future trend. Natural stone or brick will truly elevate any landscape design. Most natural stones are versatile. As the article mentions, you may choose to incorporate them throughout your landscape to construct retaining walls, steps, and pathways. You can also create a natural stone patio or courtyard for the front of the home. Natural stones additionally make a perfect option for an outdoor living space, bringing modern and rustic features to your landscape”.
Second, on the list of landscaping luxuries worth the splurge is having a master plan. Michelle explains making the mistake of rushing a project will only be more expensive in the long run. Having a professional team carry out the labour and design is best. FSI Landscape Supply shares, “depending on the scale of your landscape, obtaining a master plan is extremely helpful with a hired team of landscaping professionals. Contractors, landscaping architects, and garden designers have the skill set and craftmanship to accomplish your dream landscape. Landscaping professionals should have a go-to supplier to ensure all their supplies and essentials can be found in one place. The landscaping supplier should also offer various materials at an affordable price to accommodate various clientele and are consistently fully stocked. At FSI Landscape Supply, we support landscaping professionals on both a small and large scale. We are equipped to provide landscaping professionals with various high-quality products.

Third on the list of landscaping luxuries worth the splurge is having a great view. FSI Landscape Supply agrees, “depending on where you live; you may have a few objects which can interfere with your view. There are many ways around this. Landscaping professionals may be able to rearrange the obstructions or create a landscape that hides the obstruction. Alternatively, creating a landscape with quality landscape materials will help beautify and elevate the overall outdoor experience. Therefore the only focus is the property and not the obstruction”.
The article emphasises the benefit of using quality, natural materials. Quality landscaping material will last longer, complement and enhance the surrounding elements. FSI Landscape Supply shares, “quality landscape materials make a world of difference. Any landscape design must endure weather and foot traffic. Whether the space is enjoyed regularly or for viewing purposes, low-quality materials will offer low-quality results and will not last. If you are unsure of which materials to incorporate, ask us here, at FSI Landscape Supply”.
Soil preparation and specimen trees are next on the list. Before planting, the soil must be evaluated. If there are any issues, the article suggests that replacing the soil might be a better option as opposed to addressing any deficiencies to help save some money. FSI Landscape Supply shares, “soil preparation and the addition of specimen trees will bring vibrancy and life to any landscape design. Dull or unhealthy soil will diminish the overall appearance of the landscape and create an inhospitable environment for plant life”.
Privacy is number eight on the list. The article recommends adding a fence or hedge to create a private oasis. FSI Landscape Supply agrees, “privacy is essential, especially if you have nosy neighbours. Landscaping contractors can find a variety of materials at FSI to construct features that offer privacy. The article mentions fire elements (number nine on the list) to create a warm and cozy ambience. At FSI Landscape Supply, we suggest implementing a tranquil water feature. Water features made from natural stone are the perfect solution for creating a luxurious landscape. Any water feature will offer some gentle noise to drown out sound and combat external noise pollution. Therefore, assisting with privacy. Our article titled “stones and water features” may guide you further.”
Lastly, a gorgeous piece of furniture will tie in all of the landscaping features. FSI Landscape Supply agrees, “adding furniture and outdoor décor will immediately transform any landscape. There are many materials and textiles to choose from. Get creative! Try using large natural stones such as armour stone which can be used as additional seating areas. With a few outdoor seating pillows, outdoor rug, and throw blankets, you can create a luxurious outdoor experience”.
