The Grass Is Greener: 5 Tips For Sprucing Up Your Lawn

The Grass Is Greener: 5 Tips For Sprucing Up Your Lawn

A well-manicured lawn with fresh blades of grass is every homeowner’s dream. Landscaping may not be a skill that everyone has, but it is not practically rocket science. The simple changes you make can give your lawn a stunning transformation. If you do not like the sight of an unorganized yard, here are landscaping techniques you can employ:

1. Give your lawn some TLC

Lawn maintenance such as mowing, watering, and fertilizing is vital to keep your lawn presentable to guests and neighbors. Removing branches,debris, weeds, and unwanted plants will keep your lawn healthy. Make sure that you keep the soil moist by adding mulch or gravel.

2. Aerate your lawn

Have you ever asked yourself whether or not you should aerate your lawn? The reason you need to keep track is to improve the breathability of your soil and the drainage. Doing it once a year can make a difference. Make sure that you are aerating your lawn at the right time taking your area and grass type into consideration. Aeration does not have to be costly, but be sure that you mark any buried cables and sprinkler heads first. There are machines you can hire at hardware stores with the same cost as having a single lawn aerated.

3. Treat dead or yellow spot

Your lawn will look more appealing if you get rid of yellow or dead spots. They occur when pests invade your turf. You do not have to allow yellow spots to ruin your grass because you can treat them by spreading a few layers of composts to increase the level of the surrounding ground. New grass will sprout in a few weeks, and fill the dead spot.

4. Revive your garden

When talking about dressing up your lawn, the first thing that comes to mind is taking care of grass and eliminating weeds. Your garden still adds curb appeal to your lawn, and you can boost it with tall planters. Add flower beds so your lawn will look lively and achieve that lush look. You can also add pots so your garden will have more versatility. You can add some variations on the size, style, and height of your pots. This idea can add charm to your lawn. There are affordable container gardens you can buy to revamp your flower beds.

5. Add water features

Another way that you can give your lawn a whole different look is by adding fountains and other water features. With a wide range of styles to choose from, you can accentuate your lawn any way you like. The cost of adding a water feature will depend on the style, size, and water source. A water feature can contribute to the overall appeal of your lawn. You can also consider decorative fountains, which you can install yourself. There are also DIY fountain kits you can buy so you can create your own fountain.

If your lawn needs a minor tweak, simple landscaping techniques will do the trick. You can add value to your home’s exterior when you do not take your lawn for granted. By adding a few accents, getting rid of weeds, and arranging flowers, you will be able to have a successful landscaping improvement project.
