Yards are often the focal point of any well-maintained lawn. The vibrant colors and visual interest is intended to attract attention. If you’re looking for new ways add some variety to your landscape in your yard, it may be time to explore some unique options. Progreen Landscaping and Pavers can turn your ideas into reality.
So here are some pristine landscaping ideas to easily enhance your yard:
1. The beauty of ornamental grass
It is easy to maintain and provides a distinct look to your landscape. It makes a lovely backdrop to make the flowers pop. The grass should be well-watered, particularly during dry summer months, but it does not need to be cut down before the chill of autumn sets in.
Nothing will get people walking through the yard faster than a safe, well-lit, beautifully laid path. Choose the right color, shape, and width for your space with the Progreen Landscaping and Pavers expert team, and you can be talking your very own garden walk each morning as the flowers open.
3. Mulch trees
Trimming around trees it not only time-consuming, but you can also easily nick the bark, which can fatally damage young trees. You can avoid trimming around your trees by applying a 2- to 4-inch deep ring of mulch around trees and shrubs. Be careful to keep the mulch about 3 inches away from the trunk itself to prevent disease, root suffocation, and other problems.
4. Fertilize just in the fall
Skip spring fertilizing and do it only in the fall. It will provide nutrients for fall root growth and a shot of energy the following spring. Progreen Landscaping and Pavers can recommend the best fertilizer for your type of grass and soil conditions. Apply the fertilizer about three weeks before the last mowing of the season. This provides energy and nutrients for the grassroots as they multiply in the cooler fall weather while also giving them a head start the following spring.
5. Build paths that you can mow over
Stone or paver paths that follow the topography of your yard can let you mow without additional trimming. Paths conforming to your landscape require less upkeep than the more formal paths that include steps, walls, and curbs. The key is to set the stones or pavers no higher than an inch above ground level. Then you can mow right over them and skip the extra trimming. Not only are these easy to maintain, but they are can also be very affordable paths.
Regardless of the size of your garden, variety can add visual interest and unique flair, just in time for your summer get-together. Progreen Landscaping and Pavers in Fort Myers can help you implement your ideas and design an ideal place for you to relax on your property.
