Whether you’ve moved into a new home or you’re wanting to spruce up the landscape at your current one, there are many different options for you at a budget friendly level. Today we have some tips for you to create a beautiful new landscape without breaking the bank.
Maintain current plantings
The biggest way to improve the look of your home is to make sure that shrubs and trees are well maintained and trimmed. A lot of people tend to forget to keep up with watering in the summer, which damages the plantings. Check with a local garden center or professional to know how often the plants need to be watered. They’ll know the sunlight conditions and soil and all the different types of factors.
Add plants that fit the design of the home
Adding new flowers, shrubs, and trees is another great low-cost option that can really improve the appearance of the front and back of the home. If you’re going to change plantings around your home, choose ones that fit the style of your home and are going to be easy to maintain. Some plants that are easy are holly shrubs, hydrangeas, and boxwoods.
Add water features
In addition to fire pits and patios, one of the more popular features clients have been asking for are water features, such as waterfalls and other pond-less water designs that don’t require much maintenance. The sound of water is very soothing. People don’t really want the upkeep of a koi pond or a fish pond, so they go with the option like this because they don’t need to deal with an actual ecosystem, but you still have the sound and look of water in your backyard.
Highlight interesting shrubs or tall trees when you have a wooded property. Try to light not only trees but into the canopy as well. This makes the yard very dramatic at night and makes it very soothing.
Improve curb appeal
For homeowners trying to sell their homes, add newer plantings and fix up the walkways in the front. A lot of times, older homes have older, outdated vegetation. Design a new planting plan for the front and add new walkways. These are huge. They really draw the eye to the front door.
These things are all simple ways to create a beautiful new look for your home. You will love what it does to your home and you’ll love the money you keep in your wallet.
