Planning to surprise your significant other this February? If he or she loves to lounge outdoors, why not transform your outdoors to something wonderful that’ll greet your dear one with a blooming smile every time? Find 5 landscape projects which is definitely grander but cheaper than buying bouquets in the long run for you!
You don’t have to burn a hole through your pocket every February for a bouquet of flowers when you have a beautiful flower garden producing blooms not just every February but all year round. In this landscaping project above, the perimeter of the yard is planted with flowering plants of different heights, giving each variety a stage where they can bloom brightly.
Have a large frontage with trees providing shade? Give your front yard and the tree some flowering ornaments by making a flower plot of the surrounding ground. Having a raised flowerbed further gives your front flower garden enough visual advantage from the passersby’ perspective.
Side yards are often too small, narrow and a tight squeeze for most outdoor projects but not for turning it into a beautifully landscaped flower garden. For example, this side yard landscaping project did not cost much but definitely racked up the aesthetic value of what otherwise could have been a boring and drab patch. Not only does it give pretty borders for the perimeters of your house, it also increases your curb appeal.
Aside from planting perennial flowers, you can also add in a low-level fountain that can have a short stream. Installing waterworks beside your flowerbed can give off a symphony of harmonious smells and sounds that evoke a sense of calm and peace.
If a multi-level fountain and stream might require too much space you don’t have in your yard, consider a raised fountain which can also be viewed and enjoy by your window side. Of course, strategic placement is always key for maximum effect!
