Landscaping is about so much more than maintenance, and the essence of nature is all about change. Leaving your property unchanged for years on end would become rather boring, as would your landscape. In the same way that flowers, shrubs, and trees grow from year to year, your creative style should follow suit. Making changes, and installing enhancements keep your landscape up to date and draw in attention. People notice when your landscaping is looking fresh, and there are a few ways to facilitate that look. Ripe for business, visitors, and tenant activity, a fresh landscape is clean, new, and makes you feel at home outdoors. Here are five easy ways to freshen up your landscape, commercial or residential.
Attract Local Wildlife
Livening up your landscape is one way to make it feel fresher, and while hosting people is great, wildlife makes your property feel alive. Any healthy landscape will be better suited for attracting wildlife, but pollinators are particularly attracted to native plant material. Additionally, you will be contributing to your local environment, which makes for a great conversation starter when you host your friends and family in your fresh landscape. The more shelter, food, and water you provide in your landscape, the more butterflies and bees, so think about those additions.
Repair Damage and Clean Hardscapes
Although your hardscapes may look presentable, a fresh landscape looks immaculate. It is much easier than you think to clean your hardscapes, with a pressure washer removing most debris and stains. Damage repair is much more intensive, but less required for minor issues. Cleaning is your priority, as a sparkling hardscape can make all the difference in terms of a fresh look.
Landscape Maintenance: Basic Necessities
An easy way to freshen up your lawn is basic landscape maintenance. If you have been letting your landscape go for an extended period of time, it is unlikely your landscape looks as fresh as it could. There is nothing that can replace a fresh mow, a fresh layer of mulch, or a freshly trimmed shrub. Comprehensive maintenance keeps all of your landscape elements uniform and well structured. Irrigation, aeration, and fertilization all keep your lawn fresh and green. All are a part of our comprehensive landscape maintenance program here at Oaklawn.
Refresh: New Mulch Installation
Properly rated as one of the most beneficial landscaping materials by every credible landscaping source, the benefits of much cannot be overstated. Preventing soil compaction, preventing weed growth, and aiding in plant growth, a new mulch installation is both functionally and aesthetically fresh. Mulch is easily recognizable and featured across your landscape atop your plant beds. A fresh layer will look colorful and bright, refreshing an essential piece of your landscape.
Annual Flower Rotation: Consistent Color
If you are looking to go above and beyond, not just freshening up your landscape once, but on a seasonal basis, annual flowers are for you. These flowers only bloom during one season, so you can rotate varieties while changing up color and shape. With consistent color from your plant beds, your landscape will always feel fresh. Each bloom will be brand new, and if you pick native species that attract wildlife, your landscape will certainly be the freshest around.
