Landscape Tips to Improve Curb Appeal

It may sound difficult to decide on the best ways to boost the look and feel of your outdoor landscape. Optimizing the appearance of your property can be achieved by following these steps.

Fertilize your lawn often

Fertilizing your lawn in the winter and spring can help to make it more healthy and nutrient-rich. Adding fertilizer can make your grass greener and easier on the eye.

Fresh mulch

Adding fresh mulch to your flower beds every year during late winter or early spring can help replenish the soil and control how much water is getting into the roots of your shrubs. Mulch comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and textures.

Trim trees and shrubs

Pruning your shrubs and bushes in winter can help boost flowering and the overall growth of the plants. Trees and shrubs that flower in early spring should be trimmed immediately after flowering occurs.

Add border edging

Line flower beds with edging material to keep them looking nice and tidy and prevent grass from invading. This can help to avoid an overgrown flower bed with weeds or spores.

Try different types of outdoor lighting

Outdoor decorative lights can improve the appearance of your home and outdoor landscape, especially at night.

Plant perennials

Did you know that most bulbs last for many years? Planting flowers that are perennials is a great way to save time and money. They’ll come back year after year and add a variety of colors to your landscape.

Build a pathway or walkway to your front door

Your front yard should create a visual path for people to follow when they come to your house. The easiest way to achieve this is with a well-manicured pathway.
