Correct landscape maintenance can help you add color, functionality and texture to your yard. It immensely adds to the appeal and value of your property.
Here are some tips to help you master the art of maintaining your property’s landscape and make it stand out.
1. Choose Climate Appropriate Plants
Always opt for plants that will thrive in the climatic conditions of your area. Take factors like sunlight, rainfall and wind strength into consideration while deciding on which plants to grow.
2. Lawn Care
Proper aeration of lawns is important to allow nutrients to seep inside. All you have to do is poke holes in the lawn with a tool specially designed for the job.
3. Cluster Plants
Grow plants with similar watering and maintenance needs together. This simplifies watering to a great extent and also reduces the need for frequent watering. It helps you save on time, money and energy while still beautifying your property.
4. Curved Borders
Instead of simple straight borders around flowers, perennial beds, walkway and driveway try experimenting with curved borders. This will surely add appeal and texture to your property.
5. Native Plants Equal Less Maintenance
Cut down on upkeep requirements by planting more native plants. They are easier to maintain as they require less care and watering.
6. Potted Plants
Potted plants are great for those seeking a mix of versatility, beauty and low maintenance needs. Potted plants make it easier to add a pop of color to any part of your yard.
7. Artificial Grass
If you have kids or pets, make your property pop by giving a shot to artificial grass. It will be easy for you to maintain it. With zero upkeep, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the view.
8. Install Landscape Lights
Landscape lights add to your property’s beauty by illuminating sidewalks and accentuating points of interest. Irrespective of whether its day or night, attractive landscaping will surely beautify your property.
9. Outdoor Seating
Add more dimension to your property’s landscape by incorporating outdoor seating arrangement. For instance, you can install a patio near the edge of your lawn or use stone or pavers. Build a bench or keep outdoor chairs near trees and flowers to read or nap while enjoying nature.
