LANDSCAPING DESIGN TIPS-LIKE THE PROS WOULD DO

As a homeowner, you can use a number of landscaping design tips to make your house look just as polished on the outside as it does on the inside.


 


Create A Path


 


One of the first things that a guest will notice as they walk up to your home is whether or not there is a defined path.  Instead of simply allowing the lawn to be trampled down and act as a pathway to your front door, consider installing a stone walk.  Not only will this be more visually appealing, but it will also keep both you and your guests from walking through the mud on a rainy day.


 


Make Your Mailbox Marvelous


 


The way that you maintain your mailbox says a lot about how you feel about little details.  An appealing design might include the family’s last name, the street number or address and a colorful display of flowers surrounding the base or possibly even a decorative flag or covering.


 


Add A Touch Of Color


 


No landscape would be complete without the addition of a little color in the way of flowers and plants.  Make sure to choose plants that will thrive in your particular region, making sure to keep in mind their tolerance to various temperatures and moisture levels.  Before planting, check the soil to make sure that ample sunlight is available to promote a healthy life for your flowers and plants.


 


Curb Appeal


 


Nothing says curb appeal more than an attractive water feature.  Whether you choose a do-it-yourself kit, which is available at most home improvement stores, or you hire a professional landscaper, a pond or waterfall is sure to be an asset to your landscape.  If you really want to be the envy of your neighbors, consider adding a goldfish pond to your yard and building a decorative arched bridge for added accent above the feature.
