3 Simple Ways to Transform Your Yard
Your yard should be a place of pride, something that people look at and say “I want my yard to look like that!” So take a long, hard look. Is your yard a place you want to be, that you want people to look at? Or is it something you dread seeing and avoid at all costs?
You don’t have to be ashamed of your yard. With a little upkeep and some small additions, you can transform your yard into a place that you enjoy. You can use these tips to help you along the way.
This first tip might be the least fun of all, but if you truly do want a beautiful yard, it is the most crucial. You need to invest – time or money (we don’t care which) – to keep your yard healthy and beautiful. This means lawn mowing, re-seeding when necessary, pulling weeds, and edging at the very least. Fertilization and lawn aeration can help you have a beautiful lawn as well.
If you have the time to dedicate to these tasks, great! Get started on it now. If not, there are always professionals like The Yard Butler who can assist with the task.
Now, we don’t just mean the garden gnomes and animal statues that sprinkle your grandma’s lawn. Although, in moderation, those can have their place too. No, lawn ornaments far extend past the traditional tacky flamingos that you are picturing right now. From ornamental stepping stones and glass orbs to tree stumps and large boulders, lawn ornaments are simply anything that you choose to decorate your lawn with.
Choose something that goes with the feel that you want your home to have. If you want cute, enchanted forest, then maybe you stick with a few small animal statues. If you want a more rustic feel, use wine barrels with flowers planted in them. The options here are truly limitless. You just need to know what you like.
Embrace natural features like trees, flowers, and fountains. Plant some perennials before fall rolls around. Put in a small fish pond. Plant trees as accents at the edges of your yard. Shop around or look on Pinterest and discover the natural features that you like best in a garden or lawn. Use those ideas and make them come to life at your own home.
