Outdoor Home Improvement: Curb Appeal

What changes can be made to my yard to prevent it from being dull? How can I impress anyone who visits my property? To find the answers you seek as well as some helpful landscaping advice, read the tips contained here in this article.

Prepare what time of the year you are going to get your supplies in order to save money. By way of example, lumber is not going to cost just as much during the cold months as it does during the summer. You will also find better deals on trees, soil and perennials later from the season if not as most people are buying them.

When planning a landscaping project for your house, a great idea is to include any sort of water attraction. No matter if it is a pond, creek, or waterfall, you may highly increase the look, and resale value of your home. The cost is pretty low in comparison to the potential pay off.

2) Focus: It is important that you design your landscaping around a point of focus. Options for a focal point include a larger tree with flowers, a statue or garden art piece or even something as simple as a bench. All it needs to be is something that says look at me and brings the attention to your landscaping design. It needs to stand out not stick out like a sore thumb so plan accordingly.

Opt for a removable pool fence. If you do not need or want to install a permanent pool fence, a removable wrought iron swimming pool fence may meet your needs. A removable wrought iron fence provides the safety and security that are important around a swimming pool, and at the same time it can easily be removed when it is no longer needed, so it doesn’t permanently alter the appearance of your backyard.

4) Tints and Shades: By now you can see this is a common sense principle in Dragonfly Landscape Design. It is not important to have every color of the rainbow represented in your garden. Complimentary colors work best in creating a landscape design. Often we become kids in a candy shop when you let us loose in the garden section of a store. Try to resist the urge to mix orange with fuchsia. You get the drift.

Most individuals place plants at the edge of their house or property. This is nice, but you also want to use a variety of shrubs and other plants in different places too. You can increase the visual depth of your plantings this way. Your home will look further away from the street, which is a good thing.

If you do frequent maintenance, you should not encounter any problems with your garden or your lawn. In case you wouldn’t like to do it all the time, you should hire someone to do it for you.
