Easy Ways To Spruce Up Your Landscaping

Posted on

You have designed your home and landscaping to perfectly reflect your individual tastes and style. However, even though you meticulously designed every detail to your exact specifications, sometimes you want to give things a little spruce. Making minor adjustments to your landscaping design can make it feel like a whole new space with minimal effort. All you need to do is know your sprucing options, and make a few select purchases. You will have a new, revitalized outdoor space to enjoy before your know it. 

Get New Outdoor Planters

One of the easiest ways to tweak the style of your landscaping is to change out your planters. For example, rather than using the plain plastic planters that your plants came in from the store, invest in some new, large outdoor planters

Using these large outdoor planters, you can create living floral arrangements that are unique and beautiful. These planters also come in a variety of styles, colors, and materials. If you want to make your landscaping appear more lush and lavish, for example, you can choose planters that have a copper or golden finish.

Otherwise, you have stone options, both painted and natural, or even wooden planters if you prefer a naturalistic feel to your landscaping.

Forge A Path

Another easy and yet effective way to spruce up your outdoor landscaping is to build a path through your yard. If you have large, open green spaces in your yard, a path is not only a stylish addition, but useful. 

Following rainy weather, for example, a path will allow you to walk around in your yard without getting your feet and shoes muddy and soggy. All you need to do is go to the store a pick out pavers to build your path. 

You can choose from many styles and materials for your path, from brick to travertine, and even concrete. There is something to suit every style. A simple path will bring your landscaping to a whole new, cohesive level adding a touch of sophistication and intention to your yard.

Add Tree Surrounds

Your trees are landmarks in your landscaping design. The eye is immediately drawn to these large natural structures. To make your trees even more visually dynamic and appealing, you can easily install what are known as tree surrounds.

To install, all you need to do is dig a trench in a circle surrounding your tree. You then add a thin layer of sand at the bottom of your trench. From there you build the surrounding wall. Brick is the ideal choice for your tree surround wall material.

Once your tree surround is built, fill in the enclosure around your tree with your choice of mulch, and you will have a stylish base for your trees. As and added bonus, these tree surrounds also make the task of mowing around your trees much simpler. 

As you can see, there are several easy and effective ways to revitalize your outdoor landscaping. So, when you feel like giving your yard a little spruce, try any one of these methods and you won't be sorry.
