7 Simple DIYs for Beautiful Landscaping
Have you got free time on your hands this warm season? Then, take this opportunity to improve your lawn.
Landscaping might seem intimidating for those unfamiliar with it, but there are many ways to spruce up your lawn and create a unique yard space within days.
Plant a tree
While trees can take decades to grow to a noticeable size, the first step to a flourishing tree is to plant it. Planting a tree takes only minutes with a shovel and a Grow Organic tree sapling. You can grow organic plants around it as well.
If you plan on living in your home for a long time and want to make the place your own, consider planting a tree sapling.
Add a mulch ring
Adding a mulch ring around an existing tree is a terrific way to spruce up your yard. All it takes is a simple bag of mulch and laying it out in a hill-like formation around the circumference of a trunk.
Mulch is terrific because it isolates soil from temperature, helps trees to retain moisture, and stops weeds from growing abundantly. If you want to grow organic plants around your lawn, consider a mulch ring a solid addition.
Create a new path
There are a lot of different materials you can create a walkway out of. The easiest choice is to make a wooden walkway using salvaged wood planks you may have lying around.
All you will have to do is dig a shallow trench where you want your walkway to be and lay the wooden planks on top. Creating a stone tile walkway is similar, although your rut will need to be a bit deeper.
Create your fountain
Store-bought garden fountains can be pretty expensive. While pre-made fountains can save you a bit of hassle, creating your own custom fountain is also easy.
Stack two plant pots to be kept in place by a heavier cinder block, then run a submersible vinyl tube through the pots. If your vinyl tube is attached to a submersible pump, you can leave that inside the lower structure, and you have now created your custom fountain.
To spruce up the aesthetics, you can paint your new fountain, add some gravel, or even keep plant life on top.
Paint your grill
While grills are great for hosting a barbecue, they often stick out like a sore thumb.
A couple of cans of spray paint can serve as a way to make your grill a centerpiece rather than a stand-out.
Create a rock garden
Many people claim that they have awkward patches of grass throughout their lawns. These sections are either patchy, hold lots of dead spots, or are even unable to grow for some reason.
Sectioning off this area with some rocks can be a great way to turn this inconvenience into a unique statement piece. People love having a rock garden because it is easy to manage and stands out as an asset to your property.
Make a fire pit
Making a fire pit is much easier than you might think. Creating a fire pit is as simple as surrounding a designated spot in your yard with fireproof material.
This sectioned-off piece of space can be marked using large rocks you gather from your property or cheap fire bricks found at local home improvement stores.
Before you go
Ultimately, anyone can do landscaping. While not all jobs are easy, one-day tasks, a bevy of simple transformations can turn your lawn from bland to exciting.
