Do you have a green thumb but don’t know how to get started on your garden? Adding landscaping to your Stephenville home’s yard can be a great way to ramp up curb appeal, as well as provide some color and interest. Starting a garden can be a confusing endeavor because of all of the possibilities. Here are some tips to get you started on creating the garden of your dreams.
First and foremost, you might need to clean up your yard. This entails several tasks such as mowing the grass and raking the leaves. Having a neat and tidy yard provides a good foundation for you to start a garden and makes it look better when it is completed, according to online home design and real estate platform houzz.com. If you have a garden oasis with an overgrown mini-forest next to it, it probably won’t be as fetching as you’d hoped. Another task involved with cleaning is pulling the weeds. This can be a time and labor-intensive task, but it pays off in the end. Pulled weeds means a happy garden that can grow to its full potential.
To create the border that will mark the end of the grass and the beginning of the flower bed, some edging needs to be done. Edging your garden creates a very professional and put-together look. To do this task, take a shovel and cut through the grass along the edge of your flower bed. You have several options here: You can go for a straight line or give it a gentle curve. Using a charged (full of water) garden hose is a great way to mark your curve.
For a tidy look and healthy plants, look to mulch. Mulch helps the soil retain moisture and looks great. Be careful not to pile the mulch up too high and to leave a space around the base of each plant so the mulch doesn’t harm the plant.
