3 Easy Ways to Make Your Landscaping Attention-Grabbing, Long Valley, New Jersey

Beautiful landscaping can be breathtaking and accentuate your house, while poorly maintained lawns and garden beds can actually detract from home value. To ensure you’re making the best impression on visitors and neighbors alike, you’ll want to invest in professional landscaping assistance. However, if you’re working with a limited budget or aren’t sure where to start, there are a few high-impact steps you can take. Start with them and your property will be looking beautiful in no time.

The Keys to Beautiful Landscaping

1. Weed

Stray weeds can ruin picturesque, carefully planned landscaping, and in the worst cases, can starve your other plants of precious nutrients and sunlight. To protect your plants and keep your home beautiful, set up a weed control schedule with a landscaping professional. They’ll spray your lawn and gardens with the necessary herbicides without harming your other greenery so that you’ll have to spend less time weeding.

2. Prune

landscapingMuch like hair, shaggy bushes and trees look neglected and unprofessional. There’s no rule of thumb for trimming frequency; it depends primarily on the species of tree or shrub. Consult a landscaping professional to determine the best pruning schedule for your property and then stick to it. Your greenery will flourish with consistent attention.

3. Mulch

Mulch doesn’t just give your landscaping a neat, cohesive appearance; it also retains moisture to help your plants weather dry spells, insulates them during colder months, and hinders weed growth. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about removing it before you mulch again. The wood chips will break down and mix with the soil, creating a rich blend that your plants can thrive in.
