The holidays are a time when San Diego residents entertain family and friends, so what better time to think about additions to your yard to get it ready for company? Anticipating visits from loved ones is a great incentive to clean up and improve your outdoor spaces, so you and your guests can enjoy the holidays in style. Here are three things you can do to give your home instant curb appeal and welcome visitors!
Add low-voltage lighting. When we think of holiday lights, we tend to think of beautiful twinkling strands draped over homes and shrubbery, but what about putting in some permanent low-voltage lighting to enhance your exterior? Pathway lighting, outdoor lights, and other forms of illumination not only make your yard safer for guests but also add instant beauty and elevate your landscape, especially at night. Using low-voltage options allows you to save on electricity costs and do your part to conserve energy, as well. With new lighting, you and your guests will be invited into the outdoors at night, extending your holiday fun through the evening hours.
Incorporate some winter blooms. Living in San Diego, we have the benefit of year-round beautiful weather for plants. However, that doesn’t mean that everything is in bloom at once. One way to truly beautify your landscape is to stagger the plantings in your yard so that you have something in bloom all year. This is particularly true at the holidays when blooms can add significantly to your overall decorating scheme. A landscape professional can help you determine the best plants to put in your spaces, choosing those that will thrive in the light and water conditions available and give you a lush yard year-round.
Add some hardscape or other features. Now is a great time to finish those hardscape or special feature projects you have been thinking about. Adding a new patio, cleaning up and refurbishing walkways, adding a fire pit or a waterfall, or choosing other hardscape projects in your yard can elevate it quickly, turning a drab area into one with an incredible punch. These features can also allow your guests to gather in comfort; after all, what could be better than sipping hot cocoa by your new firepit on a chilly San Diego evening? Additionally, adding or renovating walkways and steps can improve safety for guests. Embedded lighting or other features can also improve safety, especially in poorly lit areas where tripping or falling might be an issue.
At Juniper Landscape Company, we have been helping San Diego residents beautify their outdoor spaces for decades. Our friendly and professional staff can work with you to determine the best way to maintain healthy, beautiful plants and grass as well as add in hardscape, water, and fire features that fit your budget and your lifestyle.

I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
