Tips on how to give your yard some easy and quick curb appeal at low cost

Easy Landscaping Tips

Here are a few quick, easy and low cost ways to add some curb appeal to your yard. Draw attention to your entry way by catching the eyes with color and properly placed plants. Create a flower bed along the front and sides of your front porch.
Here is what to do: First prepare the area right in front of and along the porch by tilling or raking a two foot wide section of dirt, it is very helpful to remove the grass as much as possible before adding plants. Lay down black landscaping material or a black clean trash bag cut along the sides or even newspaper can be used for weed control. The main trick is the placement of the plants. An example of ideal plant placement which draws attention of passer-biers is placing a bright colored Lily between hostas all along the front of a porch being sure to leave enough space for the hosta to expand as it grows. Two feet on each side is plenty room for growth. Hosta, Lily, Hosta, Lily, Hosta, Lily continuing so forth then ending with a Hosta in each corner. This landscaping design using simple plant placement has received many rave reviews by many neighbors throughout our town.
Another tip to add more pop to your front yard is to add short border plants along both sides of your sidewalk such as several different colors of dwarf asters or a boarder of miniature brightly colored day lilies thus directly the foot traffic to your front door. These are just a few affordable and easy ways to add some quick curb appeal to your yard. Be on the look out for more of my easy landscaping tips coming your way.
