Though we still have a few more weeks of winter, the sun is already setting later and we have had a sprinkling of warmer days in Virginia. It may not be time for laying in the sun, but it is time to start thinking about how you can enhance your yard in advance of spring and summer. We know it can be tough to start a big project after the holidays, but there are a few simple ways you can quickly transform and enhance your yard:
Add some color. One of the easiest ways to brighten your yard and add some excitement? Colorful plants! Pick some that complement the colors on your home, choose from the latest trends or talk to one of our experts to find out which colorful plants will thrive in your neighborhood.
Take care of existing plants. A little effort goes a long way, and seasonal tasks like trimming shrubs and adding mulch can keep your yard looking fresh and your existing plants ready for new growth when spring arrives.
Add furniture. Make your backyard more inviting and encourage socialization by replacing those plastic chairs and adding outdoor furniture.
Trim and clean. Are you afraid to venture into your yard or invite friends over because of overgrown edges, spiderwebs and mildew? It’s time to stop putting off your maintenance and cleaning tasks to make your outdoor space more appealing. Often, something as simple as edging your lawn can give it a cleaner, neater appearance.
Add some shade. You may not even be thinking about having a shady spot in your yard on these cold winter days, but come July, you’ll be thankful to have the shade of a tree or pergola to block harsh rays.
Of course, the easiest and fastest way to enhance your yard is by leaving it up to the professionals. The experts at Dreamscape can transform any boring, bland yard into a luscious and relaxing outdoor space. Give us a call at (757) 412-1265 to find out about the services we offer.
