Spring has sprung in Central Florida and there’s no better time to give your home landscaping a refresh. From simple lawn maintenance to exciting new garden design, there are endless ways to get your outdoor space ready for entertaining this spring.
Our lawn care experts are here to share four landscape design ideas to help give you the best lawn on the block.
Idea #1 Dip your toe in to landscape design with small trees
If you’re not ready for the commitment that can come with a full landscape redesign, and still want to spruce up your space, adding a few small trees can do the trick. Once your tree is planted, it becomes one of the lowest maintenance ways to add shade and visual interest to your yard. At RLC Landscaping, we’re committed to finding functional design features that work for your budget and lifestyle. We can consult you on the best tree variety to match your soil, design vision, and maintenance preferences. Plus, our team takes you through the entire process from landscape design planning and rendering, to installation and cleanup.
Idea #2 Plant a garden of colorful flowers
Let your lawn take bloom by adding some Florida-friendly flowers this spring. It’s best to plant both perennial and annual flowers in early spring to give them a chance to absorb nutrients from the soil around them and take root in the ground. Some of our favorite flowers to brighten up and add color to your lawn in spring are Cannas, Caladiums and Azaleas just to name a few. Start planting now to bring your lawn to life just in time for all your spring gatherings!

Idea #3 Add color and texture with mulch
It may seem simple, but when it’s done right, mulch can be the perfect way to bring both color and texture to your lawn. If you’re looking for something more unique than natural brown mulch, you can go for red, black or even gold. Mulch also provides practical benefits by providing nutrients to your soil while improving its ability to retain moisture. With its aesthetic and functional benefits, adding mulch to your lawn can be the perfect low maintenance and inexpensive solution to creating a beautiful, minimalist outdoor entertaining space.
Idea #4 Install a water feature
Want to add a little more glamour to your lawn design? Adding a fountain or other water feature can be the little accent that you need. The ambience of your outdoor parties will be automatically enhanced by the soothing sound of running water. Water features can also help to buffer noise pollution from ongoing traffic or construction.
