The sun is shining and spring is in the air! Oftentimes, people spend most of their time and energy redecorating or remodeling the inside of their home. But that doesn’t need to be the case. Even something as simple as installing new lighting or something a little more time-consuming like re-potting plants can freshen up the exterior. Colorful flowers and a new look for the patio can bring a smile to your face and leave you falling in love with your home all over again. Here are our favorite simple landscaping projects to get you outdoors and mix up your landscaping features.
Create a Pathway
To guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway. You can use pieces from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones, gravel, and more. Don’t be afraid 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. A wall or a border also 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 feature powered by a solar panel. Ready for more? 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-toned lights high in trees to recreate a moonlight feel, use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye, or highlight objects or plants. Solar powered lights can be quick and easy to install.
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!
Our patio furniture sets see a lot of wear throughout the year, either from the elements or from us enjoying them. Replacing the cushions or adding new throw pillows can bring new life to your furniture. Even simply rearranging your furniture or relocating it to a different part of your yard can make it feel like new and bring new life to your yard.
