A landscaped yard adds to your home’s curb appeal and improves the property value. If you’re planning to give your lawn a facelift, the job may seem overwhelming. The key is to tackle easy tasks that don’t require a lot of time or money. These are the best places to start your landscaping project. You can turn a tree in your yard into an eye-catching centerpiece by creating what is called a brick surround. The first thing you do is dig a trench around the tree. You fill it with sand. You finish it off by adding brick and stone. This feature also makes mowing the lawn easier, and it looks good. A walkway or sideway add visual appeal and gives your home a more welcoming feel. Flagstones are the “go-to” choice for this project.

They are useful for such things as creating a walking path from the sidewalk to your doorstep, a pathway from your front door to the driveway or a passage way between your patio and the gazebo. These natural landscaping stones are known for having a distinct, timeless beauty. They range in size from 5 inches to 18 inches long. The shapes and design patterns vary as well. The color options include grays, blues and neutrals. A flower bed is among the most common landscaping focal points. If you already have a bed that needs a makeover, add edging. It creates a lovely border while maintaining a division between the flowers and the grass. There are a couple of options that are worth considering. There is the more traditional edging made of a rigid flexible plastic. However, if you want to make a bold statement, use stones instead. You can select from a variety of sizes, color and shapes that will be the perfect complement to your design.

If the flower bed itself looks shabby, one of the simplest things you can do is freshen up the mulch. It’s a quick solution that makes a big impact. Over time this protective covering dries out and becomes discolored. No matter how beautiful the flowers and shrubbery are, weather-beaten mulch is an eye sore. When it comes to color choice, you don’t have to stick with brown. You can add some pop with red, gold or black. If you prefer a different layering option, you can place gravel inside the bed. What makes this a popular landscape element is that it’s low maintenance.
