April Showers Bring May Flowers- Ideas for your Home and GardenMay 26, 2015
The warmer weather is finally upon us, and with the warm weather comes detailing your house’s appearance. Landscaping can seem like a lot of planning and labor, but can be beneficial in redefining the beauty and color that radiates from your house. Here are some great ideas on how to embellish the exterior of your house with a garden:
Enhance Curb Appeal
A garden in the front yard? Why not? Use the colors and the beauty of the garden to make your house look more inviting and hospitable for guests! The flowers can be used to also draw attention away from any flaws of your front yard like possible cracks on the sidewalk or an unattractive driveway.
Elevate Your Flowers
Adding height to your garden will bring out all the diverse colors of the flowers. It takes a basic grounded garden and gives it a little power and attitude! Using elevated planters and hanging baskets will help you achieve this look.
Decorate Outdoor Structures
Looking to hide or do something about that old, boring looking shed in the back yard? Take advantage of these structures and use it as a centerpiece for your plants and flowers! If you want to take it a step further, plants some flowers along the sides and on top of your shed/garage to truly hide the object.
Create a Getaway
Life throws a lot at us, and sometimes we just need a place to relax. Make trails and paths with your flowers that takes you to a nice, secluded spot in your garden! In this spot you can have a bar to have drinks with friends, a bench to relax and read a book, or even use it as a beautiful spot for a romantic date!
Landscaping a yard may take a little time and effort, but once you have a finished product you won’t want to leave your garden. Make this the summer that you fall in love with the exterior of your home!
