When the warm weather is out and your yard is green again, it’s time to consider making your yard a little more beautiful, bright, and colorful. Don’t just focus on the beauty and colors though, make sure you are taking care of your grass.
Grass is one of the most important parts of your lawn. If it’s brown and dead it’s going to hurt your feet when you’re outside playing with the kids, barefoot. Keep it mowed to the right length, and keep it watered so you have a lush, beautiful green yard.
Plant Some Flowering Trees
One great way to beautify your yard is to put in some flowering trees. You’ll only get those flowers in the springtime, but for that little while they will make your yard look amazing, and you may even enjoy the fresh floral scent wafting into your home when you have the windows open on warm days.
From purely decorative trees, like the flowering myrtle, to fruit trees that will not only give you flowers, but food too…there are many options for flowering trees.
Don’t Forget Your Greenery
Flowering trees are beautiful, and they can add all sorts of beautiful colors to your yard, from white to pink, and beyond, but you also want to have some lush greenery as well (and not just your grass). Some evergreens will make your yard gorgeous and each different type has a little bit different of a green hue to them.
Put In Some Flower Beds
Don’t just have color up high, get some lower as well so that even people sitting on the ground can enjoy the colors. Flower beds can be a bit of work, with weeding and all, but it’s well worth it for the beautification of your lawn.
If you want your flower beds to be magnificent all of the warm months, mix in some annuals and perennials. Combine colors and create something spectacular and eye pleasing.
Make It Stand Out
One way to make sure that the colors in your flowers and trees stand out, and to cut down some on weeding, is to add in some small white stones or some mulch. This can add a nice solid and beautiful background to your beds to make those colors pop.
If you feel like you don’t have a green thumb, or you just don’t have time to put in all this work, but you still want a beautiful yard, hire some landscapers to do the work for you. You’ll be amazed at the difference, and you’ll be the envy of your neighbors.
Make sure when you are shopping for trees and flowers that you are buying ones suitable to your region and climate. You want plants that are going to flourish, not ones that may not even flower!
