Flowers, Gardens, and More!
Curb appeal doesn’t just mean you have fancy cement on display outside of your house. Curb appeal should feel similar to the moment when Dorothy walked through the door to the land of Oz and everything was magically in technicolor. The purpose of landscaping and creating an oasis in your yard is to better capture those feelings of relaxation, beauty, and awe from your friends, neighbors, passersby, and most importantly yourself. When you pull up to your home, you want to see lush green grass and beautifully sculpted shrubs. Who wants to walk on grass that looks like it hasn’t been watered in months? Who wants to look at overgrown flowerbeds and tangled weeds? No one. That type of environment can cause stress and make you feel tense and frustrated. Having a beautifully manicured yard can provide the peace that we all need in this crazy world.
There have been many different styles of landscaping throughout the years, some ideas have thankfully gone by the wayside (here’s lookin’ at you crazy eyed gnomes). Instead of getting all tripped up on what you shouldn’t do in your yard to make it feel like you’re in the middle of the garden of Eden, we’ll go ahead and tell you the tried and true timeless landscaping tricks to make your neighbors swoon.
