Fun Features to Add to Your Landscaping

Landscaping Ideas

With landscaping season finally upon us, it's time to start thinking about how you can boost your home's curb appeal. Your yard and landscaping are the first things guests, and potential buyers see when visiting your home. As a result, good landscaping not only makes your home look nice but can help to boost your home's value. 

Consider incorporating these fun features into your landscaping this spring before listing your home among Central Virginia homes for sale.

  1. Add Outdoor Furniture
    With a record-breaking number of people spending more time outside of the house last year, stylish outdoor furniture has definitely become a major trend. Creating an outdoor oasis with a comfortable sitting area near the patio, pool, or garden can create the best outdoor feeling. Just make sure to pick styles, sizes, and designs that fit the surrounding area.

  2. Optimize Your Lighting
    Outdoor landscaping lights are generally inexpensive and a great way to add a romantic vibe to your lawn this summer. String lights over the patio, LED lights along your flowerbed, or lantern lights along your walkway -- these are all great ways to shine a little extra light on your landscaping this spring. 

  3. Add a Fire Pit
    What better way to spend time with friends and family than to gather around the fire pit on a cool spring evening. Not only does a fire pit provide a source of heat, but it can also serve as the focal point of an outdoor gathering space. Consider a stylish fire pit made of brick, stone, or concrete.

  4. Create a Grand Entrance
    Our real estate agents love using spruces or shrubs to create a grand entrance. By planting two trees or shrubs on either side of your driveway, front door, or garden, you can really define your entrances and impress your visitors. 

  5. Incorporate Levels
    Adding terraced levels to your yard or garden is not only visually appealing, but it can actually make your yard look larger. If your yard slopes, consider creating defined spaces or sections. Terracing your yard can allow you to define specific spaces for dining, fire pits, or gardens.

  6. Add Some Native Plants
    It's easy to see why native plants are popular these days. Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they're also easy to take care of since they thrive locally. Not only do they look nice, but they also are important for supporting natural wildlife. 

  7. Try a Vertical Garden
    Vertical gardens are really becoming popular these days, and they're incredibly easy to create. Just choose a location and grab a vertical frame, a plastic sheet, and some fabric. You can then plant whatever you'd like - flowers, edibles, or succulents. For a more traditional look, you can even try adding some vines or ivy.

Beautiful landscaping is the best way to make a great first impression when visitors stop by your home. For more tips on how to make the most of your yard, contact us today.
