Summer Landscaping Ideas to Make Your Yard Shine

Turn Your Space into an Outdoor Oasis

After a cool spring, New Jersey’s weather has taken a turn for the better, which means now is the perfect time to take advantage of the sunshine and enjoy some outdoor activities right in your own backyard. Of course, this begs the question: How is your outdoor space looking this summer? If it’s in need of some curb appeal before you head outside, don’t sweat it. We have just the right landscape design suggestions you need to make it sparkle and shine!

5 Ways to Upgrade Your Outdoor Look

Ready to wow the neighbors with some new landscape additions? Call us and we’ll get your yard up to par in a jiffy. These are just some of the improvements we can help make for you:

1. Add landscape lighting.

Extend those summer nights way past dusk by incorporating lighting into your gardens or walkways. Our team of experts is adept at providing the perfect lighting for your needs. Outdoor lighting adds beauty to your space and boosts security and safety. From area lighting and pathway lights to shadowing and uplighting, our skills will add dimension and character to any backyard.

2. Install a new walkway.

If you’re looking to make a bold statement for guests, there’s no better option than a paver walkway. Our masonry experts can design a custom paver walkway to lead guests from your driveway to your front porch or guide them around the house to the backyard. Paver walkways add class and style and can boost your property value, too!

3. Add a water feature.

If the stress of last year’s pandemic has kept you feeling anxious, it’s time to relax. Choose a water feature for your backyard to help you unwind. Simply hearing the soothing sound of running water triggers a release of neurochemicals in the brain. The chemicals then increase blood flow and induce a relaxed state! Consider a koi pond or small waterfall feature in a shady spot, Then sit back and relax!

4. Add a pop of color & attract butterflies.

When you need some real garden help, it’s time to consider professional planting. We know just the right plants, shrubs and flowers to use during each time of the year. Call on our team to add more color and greenery to otherwise dull garden beds. If you want to fully immerse yourself in nature, we can suggest plants that attract butterflies and songbirds to enhance your outdoor enjoyment.

5. Consider different shapes.

If you’re looking for structure or clean lines in your landscaping, check out boxwood hedges, which can help define different landscape areas. Or if you’re into something a bit more fun, choose shrubs with unique shapes or designs to add some flair to your garden bed.
