Curb appeal is one of the most important factors of how a home looks to the public. It can also increase the value of your home. The best part is, you do not have to spend a fortune to get your landscaping looking its best. Let’s look at 5 easy ways to add a great look to your front and back yard landscaping.
One of the easiest ways to upgrade your landscaping is by adding flowers to your front or backyard. The beauty of flowers is that they are offered in many different shapes, sizes, and colors which allow you to create an unlimited amount of combinations to fit your landscaping needs. It is best to find flowers that are capable of withstanding all types of weather to ensure your yard looks great all year round.
Dress Up Your Driveway
Your driveway is the entryway to your home and should be dressed up to look as inviting as possible. While most driveways are just a concrete slab or gravel road, that does not limit you to what you can do to them. Shrubs and flowers can be planted along the driveway along with lighting to transform the look of your yard and help add to the overall looks of your home. You can also opt for adding more permanent structures like pavers or concrete walls.
Plant Blooming Shrubs
Shrubs are one of the most popular ways to upgrade your landscaping as they are generally low maintenance and can be used for a variety of different things. The problems with most shrubs are that they are usually all non-blooming. While shrubs look great just about anywhere, adding some blooming shrubs can really add a unique touch to your home. You can find all types of blooming shrubs in an assortment of colors to match the theme of your landscaping.
Hide Outdoor Structures
While on the subject of shrubs, one of the main benefits of shrubs is that they help to hide outdoor structures such as A/C units, water hose reels, and other outdoor eyesores. This can go for other landscaping attractions such as hanging flower pots, vines, and trees that can easily cover unsightly walls, siding, and power lines. Just ensure that your plants and landscaping does not interfere with any structures that could cause damage.
Add Landscape Lighting
The last tip on your list requires a bit of trial and error to get perfect but can make a world of difference in how your home looks at night. Landscape lighting can cover a variety of things from walkway lights, spotlights in trees, and flood lights that add accent lighting to your home. Any of these choices can really upgrade the looks of your home and add a bit of security for those with darker neighborhoods.
Now that you know exactly what you can do to spruce up the landscaping of your home, you can easily add a whole new look to the exterior of your house.
