One of the best ways to add curb appeal to your home is with a beautiful array of colorful flowers. They instantly bring cheer and class to any home, and you can even choose colors that compliment the color scheme of your home as well as the landscape surrounding your abode.
If you don’t feel you have the time to plant a garden, let alone keep up with all the weeding and care that a garden requires; there are plenty of effortless options available to choose from.
If you plant Florida-friendly perennials such as Buttercups, Lantana, and Periwinkle, you will only have to plant them once, and they will come back year after year. They will also get bigger as they mature so that they fill in any sparse areas with no effort on your part. These are just a few perennials that particularly love the Florida heat so they will thrive with minimal effort, even if you don’t consider yourself an avid green thumb.
You could always hire a reputable landscape company such as CWG Landscape to take care of the constant maintenance that comes with owning a garden and property. They can even help you to design your garden space.
There are many garden features that you can add to your property to bring out that wow factor for your home. You can add a birdbath, whimsical pots of flowers that line the steps or walkway to your home, or even fun decorative features such as lawn gnomes or a fountain.
You could even add solar lightning stake lights along your walkway so that you highlight your home and garden even when it is dark outside.
If you have space, you can build a patio where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful and lush greenery.
You could even add a white fence complete with a gate and plant some climbing plants such as Bleeding Heart Vines and Bougainvillea that will drape nicely over a trellis. They will also offer some shade for smaller plants that may find the Florida heat a bit too hot, and that need a few hours of shade during the day.
Gardening can be as difficult or as easy as you would like, and it can be a very rewarding experience. A well-groomed garden can add as much as 77% to the value of your home. That is more than some kitchen and bathroom renovations.
Being able to have a garden, whether it be solely for decorative purposes or the purpose of growing fresh fruits and vegetables, is a major draw for many families to owning their own home. There are seemingly limitless varieties of plants and decorative items to choose from so that you can turn your property into a one-of-a-kind abode. Having a garden is sure to impress your neighbors, and you don’t even have to do any of the work if you call up CWG Landscape to handle it for you.
