A well maintained yard adds value to a home. Not only does it make your home look beautiful, but also boosts its resale value by a big percentage. Plus, you could plant food products for your own consumption. Therefore, investing in your garden is a sure way of getting value for your money. You can start with the following set of tips.
Be diverse with your plant selection
Plants, just like humans, are extremely diverse. They come in different colours, shapes, sizes, have different growth characteristics, and could be used for different purposes. Taking advantage of this diversity would be beneficial to your garden. For instance, having plants that bloom at different times of the years means your garden will always have that fresh and new appeal all year long.
What is a garden without a water feature?
Well, not just any type of water feature. Installing one that blends with the natural surroundings and looks like it has always been there would be an added advantage. Make use of natural stone and keep it as simple as possible.
You will need a walkway
A walkway is very important in any garden. For one, it helps you move from one feature to the next without trampling on the grass. In addition to that, the walkway acts as a great complement to your garden design. You could use natural flagstone, concrete stepping stone, crushed stone, or decorative brick for that purpose.
You can never go wrong with a rustic look
A Rustic appearance will be perfect for your garden. It is one of those designs you can play around with, but it still comes out dazzling. A few old-fashioned wagon wheels here, a split-rail wood fencing there, and just about any vintage feature you may think of adding would be fine.
Go for evergreen plants for an all year-round appeal
Evergreen shrubs throughout the year translate to a healthy and appealing garden for an entire 365 days. Regardless of the season. Plus, they will also provide cover and would do a great job of softening the vertical lines of a house.
