People are investing more and more into their properties, and the outdoor-environment boom is driving that engine. With barbecuing, Frisbee playing, and flip-flop wearing right around the corner, you might want to consider a key value-adding project to update your yard.  Here are our recommendations for top 7 Spring projects:

 Water Feature

Water features are the hottest trend in landscaping today and best of all, they’re low maintenance. 

Across America, high maintenance, boring expanses of lawn are being transformed into beautiful, low maintenance water features. Why you ask? Water features offer you the chance to have a touch of paradise, right in your own back yard!

Outdoor Lighting

Light up your investment!  The appearance, safety and overall ambiance of your house is immediately increased with the installation of an outdoor lighting system.

Landscape lighting will enhance and make the exterior of your home stand out. A homeowner can place landscape lighting around water fountains, plants, pools, or any type of landscaping to bring out the beauty in these particular home features. Items will pop with lighting, working to illuminate your home at night and keep it looking simply amazing.

 Consider an outdoor fire pit or fireplace.

What an excellent way to add instant ambiance and a gather place! Not only do they look fantastic, but fire pits provide warmth, a great atmosphere, and of course a social setting.

Transforming your back yard with a fire pit makes your yard the perfect place to relax on a lazy summer evening or chilly fall night.

Fire pits come in a range of shapes and sizes and can be made of wood or stone. Installation is a fairly quick process and maintenance is easy as well.

Landscape renovation or addition.

Don’t forget that the value of curb appeal extends to your yard as well; landscaping can add as much as 28 percent to the value of a home.

Whether it’s an entire re-fresh or simply an addition.  Adding a raised or standard garden, landscape edging, or planting trees are quick, inexpensive upgrades that can add beauty to your home.

Raised gardens are beneficial when dealing with hard soils or space constraints and also produce more crops due to the loose and deep soil. The best part? There aren’t as many weeds in raised gardens!

Clean up and re-mulch.

Many people re-mulch plantings every year to get that fresh, rich look and smell that comes with re-mulching.  Re-mulching is a necessary yard maintenance task that should be performed from time to time.

Neatly mulched beds improve the appearance of any landscape. But beyond its appearance, a layer of mulch provides many other benefits. Mulch can protect a plant's root system, add nutrients to the soil and slow the erosion of topsoil.

 Plant annual flowers.

It’s spring which means it’s all about color in the garden. If you’re ready to get some ooh’s and awe’s over your landscape, then you may want to invest in a few annuals for your garden scape

Nothing adds color to your landscape like a fresh batch of annual flowers. Annual flowers come in a wide variety, so there is no set planting instructions that apply to all of them. Some popular ones are begonias, zinnias, petunias, coleus, and sweet potato vine.  Feel free to contact us with individual flower planting questions.

 Redo your hardscape.

Some of the most popular projects won’t just make your home look even more beautiful, but they add function and value as well.

For example, a retaining wall does many things, from controlling soil erosion in wet weather, to protecting plans on a windy day. Walkways made from pavers or flagstone will add a beautiful contrasting touch to any garden or backyard, while reducing maintenance requirements and acting as a watershed on a rainy day.

When you choose custom projects to enhance or add to your existing hardscape design, you will improve the aesthetic appeal and function that will keep your home looking its best.
