When you buy a home, you do so with dreams. Maybe your dream was to renovate your yard, but somewhere along the way you were derailed. Have no fear because help is here! This article will give you some simple strategies to help you to tackle your problems and renew your landscape. (And you thought we were only interested in cut flowers!)
Plan out what time of the year you are going to buy your supplies in order to save money. For example, lumber does not cost as much in the winter as it does in the summer. You can also find better deals on trees, soil and perennials later in the season when not as many people are buying them.
Design your landscape with distinctive seasons in mind. Choose plants that bloom at different times of the year so that different parts of your landscape are always in bloom. This keeps your landscape fresh and interesting and ensures that it won’t be completely dead during certain times of the year.
Check out all the available sources for the landscape products you plan on buying before actually making your purchase. Online vendors often offer discount coupons that can help you save a substantial amount of money. Your local arboretum, or botanical garden may also hold a local plant sale, or swap.
Invest in fresh mulch each spring. It is going to look cleaner, and will add a good bit of curb appeal to your home. Keeping fresh mulch around your flower beds will slow the weed growth. If you live in an area where termites are a problem, consider using pine needles, bark, or pea gravel instead.
Your dreams can come true, if you use what you’ve read here and start working on your yard today. The most simple of idea can have a huge impact, so start small and build up as you go. Every minute you put into it will show in the final result, so dedicate yourself to change and you’ll be pleasantly surprised in the end.
*TIP* for instant interior gardening … just add potted plants!
