Here are our top five easy landscaping projects!

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Create a pathway.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">To guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway. You can use materials from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones, gravel, and more to add texture and color.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look to your landscaping and helps separate different sections of your yard.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Install a water feature.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water as you relax in your backyard. You can start simple with by purchasing and installing a small feature powered by a solar panel or create a larger focal point in your yard by installing a waterfall wall or small pond.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Light your way.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">An easy way to transform your yard is to strategically use lighting. Place cool-colored lights high in trees to recreate a moonlight feel, use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye, or highlight objects or plants.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Plant upwards.

Nova-reqular; vertical-align: baseline; line-height: 24px; width: 736px; border-bottom: none !important; font-size: 16px !important; color: #505050 !important;">Expand your yard space by drawing the eye to the sky with a trellis fence or screen made of wood or metal. Once you install your trellis, select your climbing plants and vines and get to planting!
