The growing season is here and now is the opportunity to brighten up the outside appearance of your home during Spring clean up! Lawn care is one of the many blessings of owning a home. If you don’t have a lot of free time to spend working in the yard, it may be discouraging to get the results you want from the time and resources you have available. 


At Createscape Landscaping Service, our passion is creating beautiful landscapes, and we are eager to help you. Here are a few easy ways you can quickly and immediately improve the look of your front yard. Doing any one of these tasks can immediately improve your home’s look. Since tackling everything on the list at once can be overwhelming, we recommend selecting one or two to get started.


A Manicured Lawn

Let’s start with what is usually the largest feature of the front yard – the lawn. A manicured lawn will give the immediate impression to passersby that your home is loved and attended to. Even if the other features need some care or work, a freshly mowed lawn will always gain approval. Use an appropriate mower, not a weed trimmer, and mow to the proper height for your breed of grass. To even out the color and appearance, replace any dead grass sections with fresh sod. If you have the time and tools, edge the sidewalk, driveway, and walkways to outline your property’s hardscaping and provide a finished clean-cut appearance.

Clean, Repair, and Enhance Walkways and Hardscape

Beautiful walkways and hardscape add value and accentuate the features of your property. Let’s clean them up and brighten their appearance. Start your Spring clean up by using an edger to remove overgrowth of grass or weeds across the walkways and driveways. Use a weed trimmer around hardscaping or pull weeds and overgrowth out with manual handheld tools. Repair cracks in pavement and replace broken tiles or pavers in walkways and driveways. Pressure wash everything to remove dirt build-up or use a broom to sweep it all clean. 


Take it one step further and elevate the look of your walkways by installing nighttime path lighting. Need some ideas for walkways and lighting? Check out our blog Winter Landscaping Tips for some great suggestions.


Freshen Up the Plants, Trees, and Flowerbeds

Healthy and flourishing greenery is always a head-turner when you pass by a house. Create a beautiful flowerbed just by making it tidy. Remove weeds and dead foliage. Trim and prune plants, shrubs, and trees to remove dead branches and encourage growth. Fill the flower bed with fresh mulch. Add some pops of color by planting blooming flowers in bright colors such as red, yellow, lavender, or pink. Use container plants with bright flowers as accent features along walkways or hardscaping. Even a little bit of manicuring can immediately improve the appearance of your front yard.
