Just as your home needs fixing up and updating to keep it fresh and appealing, your landscape needs regular attention and upgrades. Your landscape may need a complete refresh or just a quick pick-me-up if it includes any of the following:
- Overgrown or underperforming shrubs
- Sparse or dead areas of growth in the turf or shrubbery
- Trees needing significant pruning
- Your landscape does not complement your home or your vision of what it should be.
Here are 4 ways that can make impressive updates to your landscape:
1.) Clean It Up
When plants and trees are not frequently tended to, they can make a landscape appear neglected and uninviting. Overgrown trees and shrubs can shrink the very size of your landscape and make your house look smaller. Trimming back and cleaning out areas can make significant.
2.) Add Landscaping Lighting
A small, yet impactful solution to updating your yard is outdoor lighting. Not only can it enhance your landscape's appeal, but it can also add safety to your home. More than just shining a direct light on a tree or walkway, Vista Landscaping can create ambiance with lights to highlight your yard's best features and to hide its eyesores.
3.) Update Your Driveway or Walkway
Updating a driveway or walkway can make a significant update on your landscape, especially if your driveway is outdated or starting to crack. A new stone or paver walkway can freshen up an area and make your home more inviting.
4.) Add Year Round Color
One great thing about living in the South is that we get to have colorful flowers and leaves year-round. Planting shrubs that bloom during different seasons can guarantee year round color. Plant a combination of these plants to ensure color every season:
