This may seem like an odd thing to add to this list, but water in the wrong places can speed up the decline of any landscape. Excess water leads to diseases on garden plants and can cause mold and fungus to grow on hardscapes. Moving the water away can include re-grading or taking downspouts underground with piping.

Cover The Stoop

Intoduce New Plants
