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 sources, 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 by purchasing and installing a small water 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 install lighting fixtures to 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!
