Revamp Your Garden This Summer With These Landscaping Ideas
It’s summer in Edmonton, meaning there’s no better time to plan for a new and improved landscape. Landscape upkeep can enhance the appearance of any property; yet, there is so much you can do to improve your outdoor living space that deciding where to begin can be challenging.
This article will go over the top front yard landscaping ideas and some pointers on how to use your resources most effectively.
Why Upgrade Your Landscape This Summer?
Many people are wondering when is the best time to redesign their landscape. While you can improve your yard every season, summer is when landscaping resources are the most accessible. You can also carry out landscaping projects that can’t be done during the colder months, such as irrigation systems and retaining walls. If you’re just doing a little redecorating, you might be able to wait until autumn. If you’re making major changes like these, however, spring and summer are your best bets!
What Can You Do to Redesign Your Yard?
Simple outdoor improvements may instantly improve the enjoyment and excitement of your backyard, allowing it to become an extension of your living space. Here are some things you can do to get started:
Create a Well-Lit Landscape
When the sun sets, don't let the night obscure the beauty of your gardening efforts. You can use simple outdoor lighting to emphasize flowerbeds, gardens, walks, porches, and other features. Use spotlights to draw attention to your favourite plants or objects.
Consider a Boldly Colored Fence
This idea is probably the easiest and most cost-effective option to improve your landscape for the most joyful season. This summer's fashion dictates homeowners to paint outdoor constructions with dark, vivid colours. The contrast between the opaque fence and the lush green vegetation will give your backyard landscape a little drama.
Try to Reinvent Your Lawn
A well-kept and watered grass is a sign of tranquillity in the suburbs. Droughts, water shortages, and growing environmental worries over fertilizer use, on the other hand, are having an impact. This summer, lawn alternatives are popular. People go after plant grass blends that don't need to be mowed, such as habitual and other prairie-type grasses, instead of a standard-type lawn.
Plant a Natural Dye Garden
Backyard farming is still prevalent. If you enjoy art and crafting, why not make your yard an extension of your hobby? Natural dye gardens of plants used to generate dyes for textile, yarn, and apparel are the newest trend in the grow-it-yourself movement. Many crops, fruit trees, and flowers that attract pollinators can be grown. Because many of the dye plant species are also edible, including a dye garden into an edible garden is a logical fit.
Learn and Use Color Blocking with Plants
This trend has made its way from the world of women's fashion to the world of outdoor living areas. The objective is to frame or highlight a particular plant or region with discrete blocks of colour. Use a splash of colour to prepare a row of potted plants or an artistic backdrop for an outdoor sofa. You may always highlight desired areas with porch curtains or solid-colour outdoor carpeting if you don't have a wall to paint.
Add Some Personal Touches
Families can meet for a picnic or sit and chat while the kids play in community gardens, which usually have several outdoor living areas. If you don’t want to create one big communal area, consider tucking some secret surprises within your yard. For example, a small gazebo in a corner of your landscape can be lovely and give you a place to sip a cup of tea during the daytime, and a little raised platform that gives you clear access to the sky can be perfect for stargazing at night.
