No immediate improvement will make as an immediate or as big of one on your home than landscaping. As any experienced landscaping contractor will tell you, the plants that surround your home define its style as much as the actual house itself. Just like a new coat of paint, caring for your landscaping will frame your home’s best qualities, in addition to camouflaging problem areas.
To get the most out of your landscaping, here are a few easy repairs you can do to improve your yard’s appearance:
Remove what is not working. Overgrown plantings and bushes that are not of an appropriate size will detract from your home. Remove unattractive trees, pull out old bushes, and relocate shrubs that aren’t working anymore.
Don’t forget to take care of your lawn. A green, lush lawn is what sets the foundation for the rest of your landscaping.
Plant a diverse mixture of slow and fast growing plants. The faster growing plants will add immediate visual interest to your landscape, while the slower growing plants serve as fill ins.
Don’t forget the hardscaping. Landscaping is about more than just planting bushes and flowers. Adding borders, rocks, and walkways are also an important component of landscaping. Ideally, you should select materials that complement one another, in addition to the plants they are placed next too.
Consult a professional. Even if you are a firm follower of DIY, professional advice and recommendations can make all of the difference between a costly disaster and a put together yard. Take advantage of the valuable knowledge that a professional landscaper has to offer.
