Are you ever bored of how your home looks after spring has come and gone, and summer is in full swing? Sometimes it can be easy to overlook the updates your landscape desperately needs because of the beautiful weather that has finally made its way to Michigan. We can easily misjudge the work that might need to be done on the exterior of the home because we are distracted by the weather.
But once we are officially enjoying summer, it gives us the time to notice what exactly about our landscape is looking a little run down or out of date. It can be something as simple as adding mulch to your garden to create a new look and a better environment for your plants. Or it can be something as intense as adding a water feature or two such as a pond or waterfall to create an oasis in your outdoor space.
Whatever it may be, Images Landscaping wants to make sure that you know all your options for updating your outdoor landscape so that you can make the most of our short (but sweet) Michigan summer.
Your yard may feature no trees and, therefore, no privacy! It’s pretty common not to have a fence surrounding your home in many suburbs of Michigan. So if you are looking for privacy, shade, or even just something to create a more nature-based look to your home, adding some trees to boundary lines or even in your garden can be a great way to upgrade your space.
Keeping it Fresh with Water
Adding some water features can completely revive the entire look of your landscape. When you choose to add a pond or small waterfall that has a natural look and feel to it, it can create a calming oasis in your home. You’ll be able to walk outside and enjoy your morning coffee with the sound of freshwater to enjoy with the chirping birds.
There are even some low-maintenance options to consider so that you won’t have to be constantly worrying about cleaning and keeping up with your water feature.
If you’ve always thought about having a pet but didn’t want to have one in your home, a yard pond can be a great opportunity to have fish as pets outside with plenty of room to swim and grow!
Make Magic with Exterior Lighting
When you think about it practically, outdoor lighting will make your property safer for parties or enjoying a summer night. But adding some lights to your patio or landscaping is more than that. If you are looking to set the mood for a perfect outdoor evening, it may be a good idea to look into adding lighting. It can be around your patio or deck, the edges of your garden, or even around your newly added pond or waterfall. So it can be enjoyed at all times of the day. This is an excellent option for creating an inviting, magical space for bonfire nights with s’mores, graduation parties, or even just a nice night outdoors with your family.
