Summer is finally upon us and the heat wave has come right along with it now with temperatures pushing 90 degrees in the first few days of summer. So, that means getting the most out of your home’s outdoor decor through the rest of the warm weather months. If we remember what winter was like this past year you’ll want to be outdoors and in the sun as much as possible. But what if you have unfinished landscaping projects from last year? What if the pool area isn’t finished? What if your outdated patio is cracked and unsightly? Time to start seriously taking a course of action!
Plants, Trees, Shrubs, and Vegetables
Nothing says a healthy home environment more than great color and plentiful vegetation to invite bees, color, and energy to your yard. This can be as simple as a few flowering bushes on the side of your driveway, or it can mean larger areas like full garden beds or raised vegetable gardens. Depending on the size of your property and available space, you may be considering doing some major planting this year. You should consider perennials and annuals, remember that some will die at the end of the summer and need to be replanted next year, while others will go dormant through the winter and pick right back up where they left off in the spring. Consult your local landscape contractor for the best ideas regarding species and different varieties for our area.
Updated Water Features and Pool Area
If you had or are having a new pool installed, be that in-ground or above ground, you’ll want to consider some additions to really bring that area together. What about an attached hot-tub or water slide? How about a natural stone water fall that connects to the pool? What about plantings around the pool area? A sprinkler system to keep things hydrated? Really only your imagination limits what you can and can not do so do some searching Online and around the neighborhood to get inspiration on how you’d like to see your new pool area come together this summer season. Then get out there and enjoy the sun!
Getting Started Before Its Too Late
None of us want to think about it right now, but before we know it fall will be just around the corner and that will put some changes into how much time we’ll be able to spend outside. Now, of course its still possible to take full advantage of your home landscaping outdoors in the fall with outdoor fire places and a wonderful foliage set up. But getting something done like installing a sprinkler system or having a new retaining wall built isn’t something that really can be done too close to winter. When large machinery is required or digging into the soil or installing water pipes, the spring and summer are the ideal times to get going. So, you should have some serious ideas about the changes you want to see made this year and then start pricing some quotes and time frames for work completion from a few local landscaping contractors. Look for someone with a team, not just a guy and a pickup truck, and also a contractor with more experience as opposed to less.
