Three Ways to Make Your Yard Pop
The best time to contact landscaping companies is in the spring or fall, so if you have missed the spring cut off, fear not, September is around the corner.
Landscaping is a great way to add curb appeal to your home, and it can also increase your property value significantly. Home buyers love to see that you already have a breathtaking pathway built, a well-manicured lawn, and the right flora and fauna to accent your house.
Here are a few other ways to increase your home’s aesthetics.
- Decorative Stones. There are dozens of landscaping rocks you can choose from to create an eye-catching design on your lawn. You can pick from lava rocks, river rocks, larger boulders, smaller marbles, and several other kinds. Decorative stones can be alternated with bushes, flowers and trees to give your home a more natural look.
- Wooden Gazebos. You may not realize how much a splash of wood can make your house stand out. A gazebo can be an attractive focal point, especially if you juxtapose the natural woodsy structure with plants that contrast the stain well. It will give your landscaping an air of elegance, but also provide it with functional beauty.
- Colored Mulch. When you think of mulch, the first thing that comes to mind is usually a dark, brown clump of moist wood chips that have a musty odor. But you can’t always buy bright orange or reddish-tinted mulch to surround your trees and garden. The bright colors may sound jarring to you, but they actually contrast the green of your lawn well, and draw a passerby’s eye toward your perfect landscaping.
By adding these accents, your lawn will be one that people will gawk at when they pass by — and in a good way. See more.
