Stephenville real estateDo 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.
