Landscaping Projects to Make Your Home Pop, Without Breaking Your Budget
We all want our house to look great. At the bare minimum that requires home maintenance. If you really want your home to stand out, you want to make it different from your neighbors but you don’t want to spend a fortune. Here are some great, but affordable, ways to improve your home’s exterior without doing some of the more expensive upgrades like new siding or paint.
Lighting up your home not only provides for a dramatic look in the evening, but it also can deter those with bad intentions. There are many affordable lighting options for your gardens and house. If you want to brighten your landscaping or walkways, consider some solar garden lights. For a more dramatic change, look into up lighting kits sold at your local home improvement store.
Add Boarders to Your Beds
If one of your most frustrating tasks is replacing the mulch after a heavy rain because it washes away, you need to install boarders around your flower beds and garden areas. There are many options from prefabricated pieces you simply stick in the ground to building something from stone or wood. Whatever you decide, it will look great and save you future maintenance.
Build a Cover
If you look at your home and hate seeing your AC unit from the street, consider concealing it. The same goes for your hose and trash cans. There are many options from putting a trellis in the ground and planting creepers to grow up and provide a natural cover to lattice to a fence. Just make sure to check with your HOA before spending the money on the cover.
Add a Path
Do you have a worn path from the front to the back yard? Is this because the kids take the same route every day? Add a stone path to your yard. Your kids will love it and you won’t feel like you need to replace the grass or over seed it every spring.
Although planting in the fall doesn’t yield results until spring, now is the time to get bulbs in the ground and to plant shrubs and trees. If you are looking at improving your landscaping for a spring show of color, don’t put off planting.
