3 Landscaping Renovations That Add An Affordable New Look To Your Home


If you want to have curb appeal to your home, consider improvements to your landscaping. While there are some landscaping renovations that may be costly, there are plenty of affordable projects to improve your home's curb appeal. You may want to consider things like adding flower beds with more color, installing a small affordable water feature or adding simple hardscaping like paths. Here are some of the affordable renovations for landscaping that will give your home curb appeal:

1. Giving Your Home a Makeover with New Plants and Seasonal Flowers

Flowers and plants are a great way to makeover the landscaping around your home. Rather than just having plain lawns and trees, consider less conventional landscaping design. Use grasses that can grow tall and add color to your lawn as borders around new flower beds. Have trees that are a hazard to your home removed, and replace them with smaller species like dogwoods and Japanese maple, or small birch species. In addition, change up the colors of perennial flowers that you plant in the gardens to add color.

2. Adding Paths and Affordable Hardcover Solutions to Your Garden

Paths and hardscaping around your home are also a great way to improve curb appeal. The hardscaping can be something as simple as porous landscaping pavements that allow water to drain and add color to the landscaping. If you have natural rocks available around your yard, use them as features like boards for paths or paving stones on the surface of paths. Using natural resources, you already have available can be an affordable solution for making over your landscaping design and giving your home curb appeal. Use materials like mulch, wood chips, and stones to complete hardscaping. Many stone materials like limestone and mudstone can easily be split and shaped with a rock hammer for these projects.

3. Simple and Affordable Water Features That Add Interesting Details to Landscaping

There are also many options for adding water features to the landscaping around your home, which can sometimes be costly. The truth is that landscaping water features do not have to be costly. There are also affordable water feature options, such as small ponds and fountains. The water features can also be projects that you add to over time, such as adding plants and fish to ponds.

These are some of the affordable landscaping improvements that will give your home curb appeal. Contact an irrigation and sprinkler service like A Ronnow Lawn Sprinkler, Inc. to help with water features and other improvements to your landscaping design.

Understanding Landscaping Planning

About a year ago, I realized that part of the reason the plants in my yard kept dying was the fact that they were planted in the wrong places. I didn't pay much attention to which plants needed certain amounts of light, and it was costing them their lives. Several of the plants were really struggling to live, and it was really hard to see. I realized that if I ever wanted to make things right, I would need to create a landscaping plan that would work well for the natural landscape of my yard. This blog is all about understanding landscaping.
