What Can You Do to Make Your Lawn Stand Apart?

For most, winter had been hard this year, which means it’s the perfect time to start planning for a beautiful lawn. So how should you begin planning for your landscaping projects? According to, an estimated 67% of landscaping projects in the U.S. involve single-family residential homes. Therefore, this guide is written for single-family homes looking for natural lawn care services.

Start With the Basics

You can quickly get in over your head when planning a whole yard landscaping project, especially if you want to start from the ground up and plant new plants, mulch, and more. So, first, start off with your goals and keep it simple by hiring natural lawn care services for help.

Do you want to plant new flowers? Are you going to mulch the beds? Do you want to simply patch up some bald spots in your grass? Also, keep it simple by practicing good maintenance before you worry about anything else. For instance, make sure to mow consistently and water the lawn regularly, especially if you live in an area where it doesn’t rain often. Also, make sure to trim any bushes and keep overhanging plants or trees from shading your lawn too much and preventing sunlight exposure to lower plants.

Plant Blueprints

If you want to grow some new flowers and plants, start off by drawing a rough sketch of your yard and try to keep it to scale. Then, look up the plants you want to grow and measure out how much space they prefer to grow optimally. This will give you a good plan that will keep your plants happy and healthy.

Add Some Colors

To make your lawn “pop” more you don’t always need to focus on the lawn. Keep in mind that your house is the largest compliment to your lawn and will be the biggest factor in keeping your lawn fresh. Consider adding some new paint to your siding or putting in fresh-looking window accents to complement your lawn and flowers.

Highlight Your Flowers

In the same vein as your house being an important background, the ground behind and under your flowers is important as well. Aside from making sure the lawn is well soiled and watered with natural lawn care services, you should also think about mulching the garden bed to really highlight the color of your flowers in full bloom this coming spring.

Make your lawn stand apart this spring and summer by following the tips above. With the help of natural lawn care services, your property can be the talk of the neighborhood. Contact Soils Alive to get started today.
