As spring approaches, it’s time to put some energy into improving your yard. Attractive landscaping and a well-maintained garden aren’t only enjoyable to look at; it also raises your home’s value. Take the first step in the right direction with new seating, paths, and a spring dethatch.
Landscaping Baby Steps
1. Add Seating
One of the best ways to improve a beautiful yard is to give yourself somewhere to sit and enjoy it. This can mean a deck or patio, but for a small-scale project, try adding a bench. First, find a spot with a good view of your property’s best features. Then, choose attractive local stone, wood, and other materials, keeping your home’s color scheme in mind. This way, the finished product will blend well with your yard’s aesthetics and will offer a pleasant place to rest.
2. Make a Path
To get from your door to your bench—or simply provide a view of your garden—add a path. Once again, you can use local crushed stone or wood chips for a simple paving option, which is attractive and easy to maintain. Plan your path using gentle curves to make it more pleasant to look at, and level the ground carefully to make it easy to walk on. A border of bricks or medium-sized stones adds a beautiful, polished touch.
3. Dethatch Your Lawn
Over time, dead grass and debris build up around the base of your grass plants to form what’s called a thatch layer. This layer doesn’t have much aesthetic impact on its own, but it prevents moisture and nutrients from reaching the soil and being absorbed by the grass roots, resulting in poorer growth. For a spring dethatch, you can either use a rake to dig between the grass plants and pull up the thatch, or use a machine.
