Here are three easy ways to improve your landscaping that will make your home a very pleasant place to be:

Clean up your front and back yard.  Believe it or not, one way to improve your landscaping tenfold is to simply clear some of the stuff you might have on your front lawn or back yard.  Toys, old appliances, construction debris and other large objects that might be lying around should either be recycled, thrown away, or stored somewhere like a shed or garage.  Once you’ve gotten rid of the clutter in the yard, you’ll be surprised at how tidy your property will look.

Take care of the lawn.  Another easy way to improve your landscaping is to look after the lawn.  If it’s overgrown, mow it.  Pull out weeds, and if there are bare patches, re-seed it yourself; it should only take about two weeks for the new grass to become established.  Water your lawn in accordance with your municipality’s water restrictions to get rid of brown spots.  While all of these lawn tips will improve your property’s appearance dramatically, you should also edge your lawn with a string trimmer (also called a weed-whacker or weed-eater) to get a more professional look.

Look after the flower beds.  If you’ve got flower beds on your property, pull out any weeds and even if you don’t plan on planting flowers, you should at least cover the beds with mulch to prohibit weed proliferation.  If you want to do more than just have your flower beds look weed-free and tidy, then add some color by planting flowers that will match the architectural style of your home.  For example, if you’ve got a cottage-type home, romantic cottage-garden flowers and plants will look fabulous.  If you want to add colorful details but don’t know what type of flowers to plant, head to your local nursery where gardening experts will be happy to help you.
