Front yard landscaping doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to make a huge improvement in the look of your lawn. There are so many simple projects that you or your lawn care service company can take on that will completely transform your yard.
Need some inspiration? Our experts are here to share four of the top landscape design tips that make all the difference.
1. Add color with a flower bed border
An easy and inexpensive way that’s sure to beautify your yard is the addition of lots of color with a flower bed. Simply add a stone boarder and your selection of flowers. Choose colors that appeal to you but remember that looks aren’t everything. A big mistake people make, is forgetting to choose flowers that will thrive in the conditions that exist within your yard. Evaluate how much sunlight and rainfall your yard receives and choose plant variations that will grow well in those conditions. Talk with your garden or lawn care expert on which selection of perennial and annual flowers are right for you.

2. Mulch, mulch, and more mulch
Nothing pulls a lawn together quite like a fresh layer of mulch. Mulch, while great for aesthetics, also has many more functional purposes for your yard’s health. It helps to trap moisture, protect against weed growth and regulate soil temperature.
Adding mulch to your yard or garden is an inexpensive way to tie everything together and encourage proper plant growth by increasing soil nutrition.
Tired of looking at your beautifully kept yard and only seeing that large, ugly air conditioning unit? Shrubs can help! Shrubs are a simple way of hiding flaws, creating focal points, or even adding fragrance to your lawn.
Luckily when it comes to shrubs, variety is abundant. Based on your vision, you can choose from shrub varieties that are tall, short, thin, wide, or floral. Remember that shrubs tend to grow quickly, so you’ll need to place your selection based on their size at maturity.
Arguably one of the simplest ways to enhance the look of your yard is by edging your grass and shrubs. While consistent mowing cleans it up, edging instantly creates clean lines in your yard and along footpaths and curbs.
At RLC landscaping, through our grounds maintenance service, our team provides consistent mowing and care for your lawn as well as regular edging and trimming for your shrubs, trees, and other plants.
