LANDSCAPING IDEAS

There are many landscaping ideas to ponder. Having a beautiful lawn and garden creates visual appeal. Also, this increases the property value. Another benefit is homes with attractive landscaping move faster on the real estate market.

 

 

FRONTYARDS

Bring your home’s image to life by adding evergreens and seasonal colors. No matter what frontyard landscaping ideas you choose, use plants that are appropriate for your climate. You can create a front garden that impresses your neighbors, and others alike.

 

 

BACKYARDS

Extend your living area outdoors. This area can be used for entertaining and relaxing. Make your backyard useful by including an outdoor kitchen, fire feature or water garden.  Also, you can add a lush garden to attract wildlife. Whatever your individual taste are, this is valuable real estate that already belongs to you.

 

 

 

DRIVEWAYS

Concrete driveways are an unsightly part of a frontyard. However, you can transform their appearance by adding a few raised beds. Create curve appeal by designing these areas with soft-winding borders. Another decorative feature is to line these areas with stone. Also, this is a good place for annual and perennial color.

 

 

 

FLOWERS

Flowers are a way to set off the entrance way to your home. Also, including them in your garden is a great way to accentuate various focal points. If you have a small front yard, install a low fence which creates the illusion that your space is larger than it really is. The space adjacent to fencing is perfect for a flower bed.

 

 

 

BED MAINTENANCE

To protect one’s initial investment maintainence is necessary. Therefore, routine care is essential to ensure plants flourish. Prune limbs to encourage new growth. Remove weeds frequently so they don’t consume nutrients and water. Apply a layer of mulch to insulate root systems.

 

 

FERTILIZERS & HERBICIDES

Fertilize beds and trees to help them reach their potential. Ornamental varieties have unique soil requirements. Therefore, read product labels beforehand. Apply herbicides to control weeds. Also, limiting the presence of weeds reduces maintainence.

 

 

PESTICIDES

Use pesticides to avoid infestations that can hender or even kill plants. Most pests can be controlled with a single product. Some pests reproduce rapidly. Therefore, it’s wise to treat beds in advance of their presence.
