New Landscape Makes a Yard Feel New Again

Improve Your Property's Appearance With Some Simple And Inexpensive Upgrades

If you recently purchased a home that sits on a piece of property that is untidy, containing weeds and overgrown shrubs, there are several ways that you can improve its appearance without investing a lot of money. After you have completed each upgrade, your property will have an attractive appearance and you will have a pleasant area to relax in while spending time outside.

Lush Lawn

Use a weed whacker to eliminate large weeds that are growing close to your home. Spray weed killer on areas that are densely covered so that you save time. Be careful not to spray the weed killer onto any grass or shrubs that you wish to keep. Rake up leaves and twigs that are strewn around on the property. Plant grass seed in areas that do not contain any grass.

Install an automatic sprinkler system to water your lawn on a daily basis. Many sprinkler systems are inexpensive and simple to operate, and you can even hire professionals, like those at ATZ Irrigation Inc, to set them up for you. Set the timer so that the sprinkler turns on and off when you are not at home. Within a few weeks, beautiful blades of green grass will be growing and filling in barren parts of your yard.

Small Patio

Purchase large patio blocks that are square or rectangular in shape. Set them next to each other to form a grid in one of the corners of your yard. Press the blocks down firmly when laying them out so that they are secure. Place a small table and lawn chairs on top of the blocks. Place a couple large pots filled with flowers or ornamental grass next to the table.

Use a grill to cook food outside when the temperature is pleasant. Your patio will be a great place to use when you would like to spend time with your significant other or when you are hosting a small dinner party for some of your closest friends.

Flower Lined Walkway

Use paving blocks to create a walkway that leads from your home to your backyard. Mark a straight pathway with garden stakes. Clear the section that is being used with a rake. Lay out the paving blocks to form a straight line. The blocks can have gaps in between them or can be lined up right next to each other. Make sure that they are all pressed down firmly so that they do not shift when weight is placed on them. Plant small flowers next to the walkway to add a decorative touch that is pleasing to looking at.

After you have finished all of the upgrades, enjoy your new surroundings whenever you spend time outside.

About Me

New Landscape Makes a Yard Feel New Again

Hi. My name is Martha. My husband Leo and I are empty nesters. The last of our three kids moved out of the home about eight years ago. Since that time, we have talked a great deal about retirement and what we wanted to do with our house. The house is slightly too large for just the two of us, but we already have two grandchildren and from the way our kids talk, we are in for plenty more. We have decided to stay in our home since it has plenty of room for our family to come and stay with us from time to time. The one thing we really wanted to change is the backyard. Leo retired last year, and I’ll be retiring in about six months. We are already talking with the landscape contractor, and I’m excited to share some of our plans with you!
