Ever get the itch to do a DIY project? Whenever we do, our favorites involve getting outdoors and
mixing up our landscaping features.
Whether it's as simple as installing some lighting or a little more time-consuming like re-plotting
plants, a fresh look for the lawn always gives your home a fresh look as well.
Here are our top five easy landscaping projects!
Create a pathway.
To guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway.
You can use materials from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones,
gravel, and more to add texture and color.
Add a wall or border.
Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look
to your landscaping and helps separate different sections of your yard.
Install a water feature.
Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water as you relax in your backyard.
You can start simple with by purchasing and installing a small feature powered by a solar
panel or create a larger focal point in your yard by installing a waterfall wall or small pond.
Light your way.
An easy way to transform your yard is to strategically use lighting. Place cool-colored
lights high in trees to recreate a moonlight feel, use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye,
or highlight objects or plants.
Expand your yard space by drawing the eye to the sky with a trellis fence or screen made
of wood or metal. Once you install your trellis, select your climbing plants and vines and
get to planting!
