Planning What to Add to Your Landscaping
Whether you are looking to create landscaping for your home, or start new, eliminating what was once there, there are a plethora of options. To get started, it is important to think about what you would like for your landscaping. What types of colors and flowers do you like? Are you looking to tier a landscape or incorporate shrubs and trees? Would you like to decorate walkways with updated landscaping? How much time do you have to put into your landscaping on a regular basis? And last, are you looking to create functional spaces? It is important to research and find ideas so you can move forward with a plan on what to buy and where to plant. For a full list, read Better Homes and Garden’s planning your front-yard landscape.
Tips for Revitalizing Current Landscaping
Curb appeal is important! If you are trying to sell your home, it is crucial you make upgrades to make the front of your home welcoming and at its best. Even if you aren’t looking to sell, having an appealing front of your home will increase its value. This increase will be for both your home and to improve your neighborhood. For some, a little bit of love and elbow grease is all that’s needed. Trees and shrubs can be trimmed and dead pieces and branches can be removed. In addition, it is important to pull weeds as well. For others, you might be looking to add in new plants, trees or shrubs. You can remove old plants you no longer like and replace them with new ones.
Ways to Care for Your Lawn
Winters can be hard on our lawns. As spring arrives, it is important to work to make sure your yard gets the attention it needs. You may notice old, crispy, dead grass around your lawn. This is known as “thatch.” Once winter is over, it is important to remove the thatch layer. After this process, you can also treat your lawn with weed killing solution so they do not grow when the warmer temperatures arrive. You can also fertilize the grass to help it grow. Keep irrigation high on your priority list to ensure it flourishes.
