5 Hot Trends In Landscaping

DSC_0040More people are beginning to view their outdoor spaces as an extension of their homes.  These current landscaping trends show that people want more out of their yards than just visual appeal.

Try These 5 Hot Trends

  1. “Green” your landscape with sustainable features such as native and drought tolerant plants and organic gardening techniques.  In the summer in Naples Florida we don’t need “drought tolerant” plants but we will when the dry months of winter come.
  2. Pops of vibrant color in outdoor furniture, cushions, light fixtures and woodwork complement the natural tones of your garden.
  3. Enjoy your outdoor spaces longer by covering or installing screens on your deck.
  4. A small water feature, such as a small pond or fountain, not only enhances your landscape, it also helps to create a relaxing atmosphere.
  5. The yard is fun again with space for popular summer backyard games like Bocce ball and lawn bowling.

Keep Your Yard In Top Shape

If your home is for sale is it very important to keep your yard in top shape.  A potential home buyer may overlook your home if they can’t see past overgrown shrubs and weeds.  Remember the importance of curb appeal when putting your home on the market.  In Naples the rainy summer season makes our plants and grass grow very quickly.  Make sure you are taking care of it weekly so that the new buyer can see a well maintained home before they step through your door.

If you have any questions about preparing your house for sale and would like some help deciding on how much you should spend to prepare your home for the potential buyers, please call me at 239-601-3174 so I may help you with your choices.

Remember, it is always toasty in Naples, and you deserve your piece of Naples Florida sunshine!
