Easy Ways To Make Your Yard Stand Out This Summer in Athens

Maybe it shouldn’t be this way, but it is. Prospective buyers often judge what lies beyond your front door by the appearance of your yard. That’s why the first impression of curb appeal is so vitally important. And, sure, you need to make your yard stand out by watering regularly and deeply, mowing at the right height, fertilizing, and aerating. But there’s a lot more to consider besides the grass itself. Let’s take a look at some highly effective and easy ways to make your yard stand out this summer in Athens.

Put Down New Mulch

A simple, inexpensive, and easy way to make your yard stand out this summer in Athens is simply to put down new mulch. If you put all that effort into your grass, shrubs, and flowers, why leave that dirty, dingy, rotting old mulch? Bright new mulch that contrasts with plant colors can have an impressive visual impact. And it’s easy and inexpensive.

Put a Low Fence Around the Front Yard

There is a good reason why all paintings have a frame. And that’s because the frame sets off and draws attention to what is inside the frame by establishing a definite boundary around the painting. And you can do the same thing for your yard.

A simple, low, painted plank fence around the yard will make it seem a bright, inviting enclosed space. The fence also provides a backdrop for planting flowers around the inside of it. A fence like this will also help provide the illusion that your house is farther away from the street.

Use Various Heights

You can also make your yard stand out this summer in Athens by making sure your landscape design includes displays at varying levels. Otherwise, it all just tends to blend together with nothing standing out or being eye-catching.

One way to achieve this varied-height effect is with planters. Taller planters will allow you elevate some plants and flowers, and hanging baskets will give you even more height. Using different shapes as well as different heights will aid in the variety to enhance visual appeal. Just make sure to use planters that can withstand the elements, such as those made with special resins like the TerraCast products.

Make Sure Landscaping is Complementary

Certainly, landscaping is a great way to make your yard stand out this summer in Athens. But you have to give that landscaping some thought and planning so that it will complement your house and the rest of your yard. You wouldn’t, for example, put a Japanese garden in the yard of a Victorian house. That wouldn’t complement the style of the house at all, being more just a painfully jarring juxtaposition.

Paint Your House a Complementary Color

Finally, the last of our ways to make your yard stand out this summer in Athens doesn’t really involve any alterations or work on the yard itself. It is, though, hugely important for making your yard be the best it can be. And it is to paint your house in a color that accents and complements your lawn and landscaping. You just paint the house a color that goes well with the colors in the yard, something most people never give a thought to.

First impressions matter immensely, so you must do what it takes to make your yard stand out this summer in Athens. A full 71% of home buyers say that curb appeal is an important consideration when they choose a new home. Having a beautiful, buyer-enticing yard is a great first step, but there is more to be done.
