Landscaping Resolutions for the New Year


January 4, 2017

The New Year is finally here! If one of your resolutions has to do with remodeling or upgrading your home, there is no better place to start than with the landscaping. After all, visitors and passers-by will often make a first impression about your home based on the landscaping alone, so it’s important to keep your yard looking fresh and beautiful. According to My Landscaper, a Denver landscaping company, these are some of the best resolutions you should have in 2017:

Create a Gathering Area

Do you have anywhere you can entertain friends and family members outdoors? If not, make it a resolution to create a gathering area in your backyard in the New Year. A great way to do this is by laying pavers to create a space where you can put patio furniture, a fire pit, and even an outdoor kitchen if you desire. If you don’t have much of a need for a party space, but you still want someplace to sit outdoors, consider laying pavers near your garden. Top this area off with a bench, and you will have created a tranquil escape right in your backyard.

Add a Water Feature

Consider placing a peaceful water feature to serve as a focal point in the center of your front yard. A water feature looks beautiful in the middle of a long driveway, but it can work with yards of various shapes and sizes. Or, put it in a quiet spot in your backyard so you have a place to go when you need a little rest and relaxation. Take a look at these 15 unique garden water features for inspiration.

Highlight Your Yard with Lighting

Your yard may be beautiful with its current landscaping, but if you can’t see it once it’s dark outside, you miss out on enjoying its beauty after dark. This year, talk to a professional about adding lights to your landscaping. Lights can be used to highlight beautiful gardens, majestic trees, or just to provide visibility in gathering spaces. First, figure out what kind of mood you want to set with the lighting—for example, you could want a whimsical, romantic, or welcoming vibe—then, let a landscaping professional brainstorm ways to make your lighting dreams come true.

Ask for Help

If you don’t have a green thumb—or the time to commit to redoing your landscaping—don’t be afraid to ask for help by contacting a local landscaping company. Landscaping professionals can help you achieve the look you’re envisioning and may even be able to improve upon it with their own unique suggestions. Don’t tackle a project that is well beyond what you feel comfortable with. Instead, leave it to the professionals.
