Flowers are a low-cost way to add curb appeal to your home. They provide a positive first impression. And if you’re selling your house, they’ll entice prospective buyers to come inside and see more.
If you want to make a small yard seem bigger, plant hot colors at the entryway and cool colors at the far end of your yard to create a living watercolor painting.
- Take color cues from your house, paving or other blooming plants:You should choose complementary colors with similar shades to create a harmonious landscape with lots of character. You also want to fill empty spots. Need some help? Snap a photo of the area with your smart phone and show it to your local garden center expert. He or she can give you some great ideas.
- Maximize your mulch:Mulch makes your garden look neat and protects your flowers, trees and shrubs. It also helps keep the weeds out. Your options include pine straw, shredded bark and nuggets. Choose one type for consistency throughout your landscape. If you need a lot of mulch, buy it all at one time to save money on delivery costs.
- Protect your flowering investment:Flowers need food. They also need to be protected against insects and diseases.
Proper watering will make your landscape a flowering success. Stick your finger a few inches into the soil. If it’s dry, it’s time to water. If the forecast calls for rain within 24 hours, then Mother Nature will help you save money on your water bill. Otherwise, use a soaker hose to water your flowers, since it’s more effective than spraying with your garden hose.
