After the pale and dull winter weather, spring is finally here to set the tone for your yard. Landscaping in spring plays a vital role in enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your yard. While you need to keep a check on your spending in order to be efficient in this process, the selection of trees and plants for your yard should be based on geographical conditions that will help your yard flourish in a harmonic manner.
Here are some easy and innovative tips to help you create a gorgeous backyard in spring:
Work with a Strategy
Before stepping ahead towards a landscaping plan, make a strategy. Check with licensed landscaping contractors, local nursery and neighbors with nice landscapes. Make a note of what plants and trees will suit your region best and will contrast your home architecture as well. These can help to get a rough idea of where to start from and how to break up your whole plan in a systematic manner to be more efficient.
Use Disparate Colors of Mulches
Mulches are really useful if you want to add texture as well as color to your lawn. Different colors of mulches will not only complement your vibrant plants but also spice up your yard if you have a bald landscape. Color ranging from black, brown, golden and cedar are easily available these days.
Choose Personalized Materials
You can add a personal touch to your lawn that reflects your taste. Pick some of your old toys like toy trucks, tricycles, wagons, etc. Now turn these into planters and put them in different corners, or just beside the backyard gate of your lawn. These well-placed non-gardening materials will give a funky touch to your lawn.
Use Espaliered Trees on Walls
Espaliered trees are good for those fond of greenery or with high boundary walls and fences. These trees cover the bare wall surface and create a green atmosphere around your yard. You can use colorful flowers with these espaliered trees to contrast with other plants and flowers.
Scheduled Yard Maintenance
Maintaining a healthy yard is a matter of concern for many people. Therefore, before taking a step towards your lawn landscaping, make a note of how much time you can spend to maintain your lawn. Select more of those plants that can be easily maintained. Consider hiring a professional landscaping company in case you don’t have enough time.
Use these tips to create a unique backyard this spring. A well-maintained and unique backyard can really set you apart from those monotonous yards in your neighborhood.
