Ever get the itch to do a DIY project? Whenever we do, our favorites involve getting outdoors
and mixing up our landscaping features. Whether it's as simple as installing some lighting or a
little more time-consuming like re-plotting plants, a fresh look for the lawn always gives your
home a fresh look as well. Here are our top five easy landscaping projects!
Create a pathway.
To guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway.
You can use materials from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones,
gravel, and more to add texture and color.
Add a wall or border.
Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look to
your landscaping and helps separate different sections of your yard.
Install a water feature.
Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water as you relax in your backyard. You can
start simple with by purchasing and installing a small feature powered by a solar panel or create a
larger focal point in your yard by installing a waterfall wall or small pond.
Light your way.
An easy way to transform your yard is to strategically use lighting. Place cool-colored lights high
in trees to recreate a moonlight feel, use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye, or highlight
objects or plants.
Expand your yard space by drawing the eye to the sky with a trellis fence or screen made of wood
or metal. Once you install your trellis, select your climbing plants and vines and get to planting!
