Cheap Ways to Make your Yard Look Good

Now that spring has arrived, that means more yard work!  I love the warm weather and getting outside.  I love planting my garden and watching my vegetables grow.  However, there are a few things I have to do around the yard that I don’t enjoy as much, just the regular maintenance to keep it looking nice.  It’s still spring time and it’s not too late to get started.

3 simple tips to make your yard look great

Tips To Make Your Yard Look Great

Weed the flower beds  This make such a difference when people come up to your door.  If your house is close to the street, it can make a huge difference.  I know some people that do this daily.  They may just pick a few weeds on the way to the mail box or car.  I usually do it once a week.  Since it’s not my favorite thing to do, I just do it all at once.  We have this huge area that needs to be weeded all summer.  It’s pretty tough to keep it under control.  Please don’t look to closely at this picture!


Plant flowers  Now, this is a little more rewarding!  I love getting out my pots and going to the nursery and picking out what I want.  I just plop down in the middle of the drive way and get to work.  Flowers give your house have great curb appeal.  I have some in the back and front and I love the way it makes my house look.


Pruning  We have a lot of bushes and the pruning normally takes forever.  When you prune your bushes back, they come back fuller and the flowering plants have more blooms.  It’s important to do this every spring.  You may feel this is a waste of time, but it really will pay off in the long run.
