3 Popular Spring Landscaping Projects

1.Creating an outdoor living space: Patios and outdoor living spaces have grown in popularity since the pandemic started. When creating an outdoor living space, you’ll likely have to start with a base of a hardscape so you will need to decide on materials beforehand. Some hardscape materials are more expensive than others so you will need to prepare a budget beforehand. Another popular feature of outdoor living spaces is the building of firepits. A fire pit can be created from hardscaping materials as well. Pools can be a great place to create an outdoor living space as well. Adding trees, mulch, and a hedge can add to the aesthetic value of the property as well as add privacy.

2. Creating a sustainable lawn and garden: Native plant landscaping and Xeriscaping have made creating a sustainable landscape design very easy. If your spring landscaping project consists of creating a more sustainable lawn, start with researching native plants and organic landscape products. Consider mulching your beds to better protect plant roots. Mulch seals in moisture so less water will be needed for the plants. You can also start composting which will act as a natural fertilizer and decrease waste. The best part of turning your yard into something more sustainable is that it will now be a lower maintenance yard.

3. Starting a raised bed garden: Raised garden beds are easy to create and maintain. You’ll have to choose what material you want to use. The most common material used for raised beds is wood. Purchasing 4 planks and an X shaped brick can create a raised bed garden without having to use nails or too many tools. Other materials you can use for creating a raised bed garden are bricks, metal, and stone. One more easy idea for creating a raised bed garden without a lot of work is a large sheet metal water container for farm animals.

Before you begin the landscaping projects…

Before you start on your spring landscaping projects, there is some preparation work that will need to be done ahead of time. First, you need to plan out what project you want to do, then you have to plan out the budget for that project. Choose your supplier carefully and don’t forget to shop around to see different prices. You should check zoning laws in your town or city to make sure you aren’t violating any of them. There may also be permits required for certain projects so be sure to check which ones you need for specific projects.
