Add Some Flair With These Landscaping Tips

Your home is your castle; a reflection of who you are, your tastes, your likes, etc. The garden, the exterior yard is the first part of your house that people will see, as it’s a part of your house’s facade, and making it look good can do a lot for the feel of your home, not just for you but also for anyone looking at it.

We here at Greenside Landscaping, we’ve seen blooming shrubs, annuals, perennials for flair, to other, more practical options, like protecting gardens from local fauna, there are a lot of ways people make their home inviting and appealing.  There are a lot of options, of course, and here are some of them, both fashionable and functional, in order to make your outdoor spaces look great.

  • Flower Power.
    • A classic idea, one we here at Greenside Landscaping have seen a thousand times, and one we still recommend, regardless. Flowers help make a home feel more welcoming, and annuals and perennials like Petunias, and Snapdragons, make for great additions into your home. If your home has a small space between it and the street, a low fence creates an illusion that your house is farther from the street than it actually is.
  • Ramble on.
    • Rambling vines, especially the delicate, flowering types, make for a great addition, since they give the fences and columns in the garden with a stately or romantic feel. Clematis is a good example of a rambling vine species, with blossoms of blue, purple, among others.
  • Dress the driveway.
    • With good landscaping and the right plants, a bad looking driveway can be hidden. With a bit of effort and time, you can turn the not-so-picturesque part of your house and turned into a gardener’s slice of paradise. For working with a driveway, a good mix of color, texture and height can work wonders for your driveway.
  • Protect against the local fauna.
    • One of the problems a garden has to face is the local fauna. Animals, bugs, and the like might be an issue, and when they do strike, it’s pretty heartbreaking. If you’re looking to protect your garden, find the attractive flora local fauna avoid; you’ll have a pretty garden, without putting it at risk.
