PSpring has arrived, and now is the time to spruce up your landscape. If you’ve established a general landscape layout in your yard, but you want to create a deluxe look this spring, there are a few, simple things you can do to take your landscape from mundane to extravagant:
Space– Depending upon the size and shape of your yard, there are several ways to create a beautiful oasis. If you want a wide open view, planting larger shrubs and trees along the perimeter of the yard is a good choice, but if you would like to define separate, more intimate spaces within the yard, then using planters, hardware, rocks, and smaller grasses or shrubs is an aesthetically pleasing way to establish separation, create borders, and fashion paths from one area to another.
Plants-For a landscape to be truly impressive, it must contain unique, eye-catching vegetation. Tropical plants and exotic blooms will add a burst of color and can become a distinct focal point in the landscape if you wish. Adding a few of these plants or flowers will set your landscape apart from the typical design, and if incorporated properly, they will complement the overall scheme perfectly. Be sure that the exotic plants and flowers you choose can thrive in your climate.
Accents and Materials-There are many choices when it comes to adding accents and landscaping materials to your yard. The first thing to remember, though, is that over cluttering your yard with these items can derail the intended design and create visual confusion. Select a few tasteful items that will create a cohesive style and accomplish the look that you’ve imagined. Lighting is a great accent for landscaping, especially if your yard includes an outdoor living area. Use lights to illuminate paths or sitting areas to create a comfortable atmosphere for family and guests. Depending on your taste and the look and feel of your yard, you could add a rock or wrought iron sculpture, a water feature, or a fire pit. The accents you use should combine to create the luxurious environment you desire and should not overpower one another.
Bringing paradise to your backyard is not as difficult as it may seem. If you make the right choices with your space, the plants you use, and the selection of accent pieces, your landscape can quickly go from boring to stunning.
