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.

Plant upwards.

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!
