Your home could be your castle but instead of surrounding it with a moat, you could turn your yard into a beautiful space that is personalized and cozy. Right from growing shrubs to perennials, there are different ways you can make your home appealing and inviting. Here are a few tips to turn your yard into a beautiful place to host your guests.
1. #Add flowers
Flowers have the ability to make any space welcoming. You can adorn the entrance to your home with beautiful annuals and perennials. Roses can be a great addition to the entry and if you have only a small space between the house and the street, you can construct a low fence in the front of the yard. It can give the illusion that the house is farther from the street and also makes a great space for planting flowers.
2. #Dress up the driveway
If you can carefully sculpt the landscape and choose the right plants, you will be able to hide an unattractive driveway. Create a slightly raised island of the lawn in the center of the drive and add a boxwood hedge towards the back of the island with annuals, roses, and perennials rising above the hedge. You can blend a number of colors, heights, and textures for the perfect look.
3. #Add height with baskets
Nobody likes a one dimensional home, then why do you want a one-dimensional landscape design? Try to add layers to the yard with elevated planters as well as hanging baskets. It will build visual interest with minimal effort. You can add elevated planters as well as hanging baskets from high to low which will give an impression of waves of blossoms falling across the yard.
