After all, an overgrown lawn can be just as stressful as all of those issues you’re seeking an escape from.
Fortunately, there are plenty of landscaping ideas that will take your lawn from boring to brilliant. To make your yard the best in the neighborhood, we’ve compiled a list of four interesting landscaping ideas that will make help fully immerse you in summer relaxation.
- Add fountains
You don’t have to have a large yard to relish in the beauty of a fountain! There are plenty of small fountains you can buy and use as a focal point in your yard. If you’re still dying for some floral accents, there’s no reason you can’t surround your fountain with beautiful plants.
- Don’t forget the hardscaping
Chances are you have a pathway or a sidewalk of some sort in your lawn or garden, so don’t ignore it! Nothing ruins a beautiful garden like a chipped or cracked path. At the beginning of every year, double check and make sure the cold winter weather hasn’t ruined your stones.
- Plant flowers in individual pots
Sometimes if you plant rows and rows of the same flower, they don’t all come up in even lines. You can bypass this by planting your flowers into a pot and putting the pot itself directly into the garden! You can even surround the pots with stones for a detailed mosaic look.
- Group by color
Most gardens are typically planted with colors all intertwined, so it’ll make for an interesting look if you group all your flowers by colors. Don’t be afraid to mix a bunch of different types of flowers in your color sections for a cool edge as well!
These simple landscaping ideas will make your garden perfect for guests this summer — so go ahead and get to planting!
