Hello World! Welcome Friends! Landscaping can truly transform a home and take it from a rather dull and predictable look to something completely unique and beautiful. If you’ve been looking at your landscaping and gardens as of late and thinking they need a little TLC, then it may be time to incorporate some new design ideas into your garden. Here are some ways you can make your garden pop and stand out, becoming the focal point of your exterior.
Use Lighting to Your Advantage
One area that often goes unnoticed is garden lighting. This is a step that is absolutely necessary if you hope to make your garden pop. Lighting allows you to draw attention to certain areas of the landscaping, it sets the atmosphere, and really changes up how your exterior looks in the night. There’s also the fact that it provides a functional purpose allowing you to light up paths, steps, and decks.
There are all kinds of exterior lighting options to choose from such as rope lighting, garden lights, spotlights, and much more. You can use solar lights that can be placed anywhere since they are wireless, or you can do something more permanent and usually more powerful by wiring the lights.
Trim Back Your Shrubs and Trees
Here’s a tip that doesn’t cost any money but will give you some very extreme results. It’s amazing what you can do to a garden just by pruning the shrubs and trees. Over time it’s only natural that they become overgrown and lose their shape, so it’s a good idea to prune them. It will make the space look bigger and brighter, and will allow the sun to hit other areas of the garden that may not have been getting enough.
It’s a good idea to speak to your local garden center about how much you can prune and what the best time of year to do the pruning is.
Create a Dedicated Lounge Space
If you’re going to all the trouble of making your garden look great, why not create a designated lounge space where you can enjoy your hard work? A park bench or small bistro set can be the perfect addition.
When in Doubt Call for Help
Of course, landscaping can be an overwhelming task for people. Not only is it a lot of physical work, but you need to have that design know-how and vision. This is why it’s a good idea to call on professionals to come in and provide you with design ideas, and then go ahead and execute them. ALD Architectural Landscape Design is a perfect example of a company that that can come in, listen to your wish list, and then transform your outdoors into your dream design.
They can work with you to create a one-of-a-kind look that reflects your own personal style and yet works with the space.
