One of the simplest ways to add a huge return on your property investment is to landscape. Appearances matter and having a beautiful, vibrant garden can be the difference of thousands of dollars (if done right). Gardening and maintenance doesn’t even need to be a chore, because there are simple steps you could be doing right now that will make a world of difference.
To get the most out of your property’s value, draw on our 20 years of experience with some of these tips.
Lawn Care for Beginners
This one is self-evident, but it needs to be mentioned first. Giving your grass a tidy trim, properly placing potted plants for maximum visibility, and pruning trees and hedges are all essential first steps that make further adjustments easier.
People are far more likely to purchase a home that appears to be ready to fit their needs. Furthermore, a neater, more consistent garden communicates to potential purchasers that care will be simple!
Patterns and sequences are ingrained into our brains, and we favour them. Match the style of your garden to the architecture of your home to take advantage of this.
Garden designs that are more sophisticated and conservative, with the occasional splash of colour, will complement older type residences. If you have a more modern home, try experimenting with different textures and colour combinations to compliment the unique construction.
Compost and Mulch
Making your own soil conditioner decreases your environmental impact, provides ideal growing conditions for plants, and is completely free! It’s one of the most straightforward methods in the book, and it’s a surefire winner for any homeowner.
Your raw materials are organic waste from food scraps and fallen leaves; all you need to do now is build or buy a compost bin. Introduce this material to the bin, spritz it with water, and aerate it once or twice a week. After a few of months, you’ll have your very own organic, natural compost!
Composts are beneficial to your garden because they replenish nutrients and minerals in the soil, allowing your plants to thrive. They also have natural pesticides in them to keep pests away from your precious plants.
Mulching takes even less time and effort. Organic items, like as leaves, can be shredded into 2 inch parts and liberally applied to the soil. This aids with the retention of moisture and heat in the soil, as well as preventing weeds from receiving the light they require to develop.
Greenery that is dying should be replaced.
Dead grass is an eyesore and a clear indicator of inadequate lawn management. Fortunately, you have solutions that will guarantee a return on your investment. You may start by reviving a lawn by sowing grass seeds to kick-start new growth, or you could opt for a complete turf replacement.
Another simple way to enhance a lawn’s visual appeal is to strategically plant ornamental grass to increase dynamic contrast and texture. Most types will help to sharpen the garden a bit, but have a look around to see what colours go well with your current landscaping.
