How to Spruce Up Your Yard Without Spending A Fortune

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 July , 2015

There are many reasons why you may want to spruce up your yard. Perhaps you want to impress potential home buyers, or you just enjoy the aesthetics of a beautifully-kept landscape. Whatever the reason, sprucing up your landscaping is a wise investment in your home. Research has shown that good landscaping can increase your home’s value by as much as 12.7 percent. However, you do not have to spend a fortune to get a great look. Here are some tips from the experts at Juniper Landscape Company in San Diego:

  • Mulch – By using mulch you can instantly transform the look of your flowerbeds. Mulch also saves you time and money because you will not have to weed nor water as much.
  • Prune, Trim, Pull – By simply pruning, trimming and weeding, you can make your yard look new. Keeping your yard tidy is key to creating an attractive look. It is also the least expensive way to improve your yard’s appearance.
  • Show Your Lawn Love – If you have a lawn, be sure to show it love by cutting it as needed. Whether your yard is large or small, it will look bad if it is overgrown. If you live in a drought-prone area, consider replacing your grass with a native turf grass, which is far more sustainable and reduces your costs.
  • Know Your Yard – Before buying plants for your yard, have an expert appraise it and suggest the best plants for your specific yard conditions. It is also important to pay attention to which parts of your yard get the most and least sun when placing new plants.
  • Choose Local Plants – You can save a lot of money by choosing native foliage. These plants are naturally climate-appropriate and can survive without costly fertilizers and pesticides.
  • Light Up Your Space – Nothing changes the appearance of a space like lighting. Outdoor lighting can be easily accomplished for a small amount of money, giving you greater visibility and the ability to use the space any time. You can even use wireless LED solar lights as a “free” lighting option.

    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
