5 Ways to Improve Your Landscaping

If you take a walk around your property, do you like what you see? If the answer is anything but “Yes”, it may be time to make some changes. The following are different suggestions of ways you can improve your landscaping. While the list is by no means comprehensive, its purpose is to get “the wheels spinning” and hopefully encourage ideas for your own projects!

New Sod, Plant Material, Walkways; Landscaping Considerations

New sod can take a lawn that looks brown and unhealthy to a lawn that appears fresh, bright and a lively green color. With proper care after planting, you take the necessary steps for the sod to set well and thrive. The key care points are to water the sod (keep the soil moist), and to avoid all foot traffic after installation, for 2 weeks at least. Taking the time to care for your sod right away will help you see the desired results faster.

If you are installing new sod in your lawn, you may also want to consider adding plant material, a walkway or any other design ideas. Check out some landscaping improvements that were made below. Maybe it will spark some ideas for your home or business.

Patio Installation

Adding a patio to your outdoor living space is a great way to add value to your home. Whether you enjoy hosting visitors, or just enjoying a night outside alone or with your family, having an outdoor patio creates a peaceful place to relax. Outdoor patios also add a financial value to your home should you ever decide to sell in the future.

Retaining Wall or Sea Wall Improvements

Retaining walls are a great option if you have a sloped yard. They help to prevent soil erosion but can also add an appealing new look to your property. If you have a house near a body of water, you may already have a seawall. If so, it is important to inspect your seawall every so often. You want to ensure it is still structurally sound and address any issues as they arise. If not, you may want to consider installing one to help prevent erosion and flooding. Check out the pictures below highlighting the addition of and reconstruction of both a retaining wall and sea wall.

Artificial Turf

Artificial Turf is a low-maintenance, long-lasting option to keep your lawn looking green year round. There are many advantages to Artificial Turf. It can be installed indoors or outdoors. If you have a dog, you can choose a turf option that is pet-friendly. Many pet owners are installing artificial turf at their homes. Not only is it easy to clean, it can be the resolution to muddy areas in your lawn caused by heavy foot traffic, or dogs running back and forth tearing up the grass, and ultimately tracking that mud indoors.

There are several options to choose from when selecting new turf based on your turf goals. Is Pet-Friendly Turf important to you? Do you need a turf that can withstand heavy foot traffic? Do you enjoy Golf and want to install your own, personal putting green? A professional can help you decide what turf would be best for you based on your home goals. Check out these recent turf installations, both indoor and outdoor.
