The Perfect Summer Landscaping Trends for Your Home

If your home could use some extra curb appeal, changing the landscaping may be just what you need to create the look you’ve been wanting for years. You may be surprised how small changes make such a big difference. Some great summer landscaping trends that you may want to consider for your home are included below.

1. Start with your lawn

A nice green lawn is the best basic start to a beautiful, landscaped yard. if you have a lawn that needs some extra TLC, start now to do what you can to bring it back to life. If you have weeds in your lawn, get rid of them by pulling them or having somebody come and spray for them regularly. Mow your lawn on a regular basis and remove any kind of leaves or other debris that could be weighing it down. Don’t forget watering to keep those yellow and brown spots at bay.

If you need a complete lawn/landscaping installation, save yourself the hassle and hours of back-breaking work. Hire a landscaping crew that knows what they’re doing and gets it done fast! Venditti Demolition, LLC delivers beautiful yards that you can enjoy for years to come.

As time goes on your lawn will become less of a project and something you just easily maintain. It’s important to know that this job will not be achieved in just one day. It could take years to get your lawn how you would like it but don’t give up, you can do it!

2. Overgrowth getting you down?

Sometimes our best intentions can get out of control. Beautiful plants that are allowed to overgrow and spread wherever they want can make the landscaping feel cluttered and messy. Consider hiring a landscaper to get you back to where you need to be in this regard.

3. Fix things that need to be repaired

It seems like there’s always something that needs to be fixed in your home. Your yard is no exception. If there are things that need to be fixed or painted, etc. do your best to keep up with them. Having things like ripped window screens and chipped paint can take a nice home and make it look run down quickly. A lot of these repairs won’t take much time, they just need to be done.

4. Create a clear path to the door

Often when we think of landscaping, we think of flowers, bushes, and trees. While this is a major part, you can’t forget about your home and the fact that guests are there to visit you. Create a clear pathway to your front door so that when people look at your home, they see a natural walkway that leads them inside. This can be achieved with stone, cement, and even dirt.

5. Remove old tree stumps

If old tree stumps are hindering the look and feel of your landscaping, get rid of them once and for all. Don’t let stumps determine how you will use your yard any longer.

6. Consider xeriscaping

Depending on your goals, xeriscaping can add a beautiful look while reducing the amount of water that is needed for your landscaping. This can be especially helpful in areas that aren’t able to grow grass as well as others.

7. Don’t be afraid of using hardscaping

Hardscaping can often be an intimidating element for homeowners to utilize. Adding some of those non-living features to your landscaping can change the whole feel of your yard. Think of a beautiful stone patio or wood pergola in your backyard. An evening BBQ would be magical with those elements!

8. Look at that front door!

A front door with a pop of color or even a bold dramatic statement color draws you in immediately. It’s so much fun too! Adding an accent color can really pull other elements such as light fixtures, garage doors and hardware all together. This has been one of the popular summer landscaping trends that has been around for a few years now!

9. Wash the exterior of your home and the surrounding paths and driveway

Bring your home back to life with a good pressure wash. It’s amazing how much better your home and driveway can look after just a few minutes with a good power wash.

10. Add planters

Add some planters to your porch, around a walkway, or even hanging from your porch to add a pop of color as well as create a softer vibrant look. Nothing is quite as pretty in your yard as some beautiful plants and flowers during the summer.

11. Fix that porch and upgrade those railings

Is your porch or the steps leading up to it falling apart? How about the railing or handrails on your porch or going up your stairs? If any of these things need to be torn down and replaced, make it a priority. Not only is this a curb appeal issue but a safety hazard. If someone were to get hurt because your stairs were in disarray, you could end up paying for it in ways that you had not anticipated.
