Never underestimate the power of curb appeal. A lot of Omaha homeowners put all of their energy into the backyard, but the front of the house is where first impressions are made. There are several improvements you can do that make a huge difference. Paint your door a contrasting color than the base of your home, keep lawn ornaments to a minimum, keep up on your Omaha lawn care, and plant colorful eye popping flowers.
When selecting plants, you should match the architecture of your home with the theme of your garden. Besides the plants in your garden, you need to think about your Omaha hardscape. If you are putting in a deck, for example, you need to make sure those elements of your garden also reflect positively upon your house.
Overlooking Exterior Lighting
The biggest mistake people make when they think about planning out their front yard is that they only visualize it during the day. At Above and Beyond Complete Grounds Maintenance, an Omaha lawn care company, we suggest adding some exterior lighting. It not only helps with vision and movement, but it also really makes the garden pop. It doesn’t have to be expensive or entail a lot of effort. There are a lot of good solar lights that can easily be stuck in the ground. The sun heats them up all day and then at night they come on with a nice soft glow.
Failing To Be Family-Friendly
A lot of people get carried away with the theme of their yard. They don’t think about how they are going to use the lawn or the area — they just think about how they want it to look. For example, a rock garden is really attractive, but probably not the best thing for a family with small children. Sit down and make a list of what you want to do in your yard, making sure to look at the needs of everyone in the household.
