Have you owned your property for a long time and are getting bored with its appearance? Then consider it an opportune time to consider landscaping redesign! With a fresh, new landscape, your property assumes an almost new ambiance, its value increases, and it gives you a new love of your land. Here are some landscape redesign tips to help you gain a new appreciation of your yard.
The Gradual Blossoming Of Time:
The once enchanting landscape –the trees, flowers, bed designs, ponds, swings, shrubs and lawns- that originally made you fall in love with your home, should have matured and lost its luster by now. Landscaping redesign is aimed at giving a fresh look to your property by changing the design and layout of it. Play areas for kids who have since moved out can be remodeled and transformed into something else, like a greenhouse garden or a work space for woodworking projects. It might also be the right time to uproot shrubs and plants that don’t look as healthy as they used to and replace them with new ones.
Begin With A Focal Point:
To begin a redesign of your backyard, it helps to start with a focal point, the place that you want your guests’ eyes to be drawn towards. This could be a statue, a water feature, a beautiful tree, an outdoor art piece or a flower garden. Whatever you pick should stand out but have a connection with the rest of your landscape. You want the colors and textures to flow together, while making a bold statement. Deciding what you want to be the main attraction of your backyard will help you and your landscape team design the rest to go with it.
