Do: Think of Landscaping as an Investment
Your landscape is one of the first things people notice when they walk or drive by, so don’t let it detract from the rest of your home’s beauty. Instead of thinking as landscaping as a chore or something you should leave at the bottom of your to-do list, think of it as an investment in your home’s curb appeal. This point is even more important if you’ll be selling your home in the near future — the right landscaping can increase your home’s resale value!
Don’t: Give Yourself Too Much Lawn
A large lawn can be difficult to maintain throughout the spring and summer, and it can also raise your water bill significantly. You don’t want to spend hours mowing your lawn when you could be relaxing on your days off, and you certainly don’t want to pay a higher utility bill each month. If you’re looking for eco-friendly ways to landscape your home, just get in touch with one of our landscaping experts!
Do: Think About the Long Run
Many homeowners believe that landscaping is a one-and-done investment. Although some projects certainly are, creating a gorgeous landscape can take several seasons. For instance, you can start by improving the soil around your home, adding a sprinkler system, and then planting trees. The next season, you can plant flowers, shrubs, bushes, and anything else you’d like in your landscape!
Don’t: Give Weeds the Chance to Spread
Nothing will make your hard work go to waste quite like letting weeds spread around your home. Whether it’s in your garden, around your trim, or in a flower bed, letting weeds of any kind grow for more than a week can make it incredibly difficult to maintain a beautiful landscape. Take some time each week to pull weeds around your home — your hard work will pay off!
