With Mother’s Day almost here, you want to consider landscaping additions to celebrate mom. There are several advantages to this. Not only do you improve the aesthetics of the home, you also give mom a gift. She doesn’t have to do any of the work on her own, which means she gets to simply enjoy the beauty of all that is planted.
Brightly Colored Flowers
Spring is all about flowers and one of the best landscaping additions available is adding brightly colored flowers to the front of the house. This might include creating an entire gardening bed so that the flowers have a place to grow and bloom. This can add a significant amount of curb appeal to the home. Various colors can be chosen in order to coordinate with the colors of the home. Additionally, having a large gardening bed can be a perfect place for mom to spend some time throughout the week. Especially if she loves to garden, adding some flowers to the front of her home will be a perfect Mother’s Day gift.
If mom loves to cook, then adding an herb garden is a great addition in time for Mother’s Day. This could be placed anywhere around the yard – the front, back, or even the side. Depending upon the space that is available around the home, you might also want to explore various hardscape additions. This includes a retaining wall around the herb garden as well as some landscape lighting that will help to showcase the area. With fresh herbs, there’s no longer the need to go to the store to buy them. Mom gets fresh herbs from her own garden, and this is the gift that keeps on giving.
An Outdoor Oasis
All sorts of things can be created with landscaping. This includes an entire outdoor oasis where mom can go in order to meditate, read, or simply enjoy a glass of iced tea. Patios, pondless waterfalls, and more can be created in the backyard. Additionally, various plants, whether green or colored, can be added in order to provide some beautiful décor. Depending on how the backyard is already staged, larger bushes and shrubs can be planted, too. This will provide privacy as well as walls of sorts in order to have a private sitting area. All sorts of different options exist when you want to add in landscaping for mom. Simply work with a professional landscape designer to determine what’s going to work best for the space as well as the budget.
