Who doesn’t want to wake up to a beautiful bright sunny day with a cool breeze blowing across the garden? Everyone. But many people ignore how the landscape looks beyond growing plants and trees, or even if they do, the investment is not planned well.
In this blog, we share 7 landscape development options that are worth putting money in:
1. Herb garden
Growing herbs on your patio that is not covered will not give you returns. There are herbs that can grow throughout the year but some can thrive only under shade like Chives, Parsley, Cilantro, and Tarragon.
Either you can install the plants as per their ideal weather conditions or you can choose to have a patio enclosure allowing the property owners the flexibility to open and close the roof using a simple button.
This regulates the exposure of sunlight to your herb garden and gives you the healthy produce year-round. Use the herbs for cooking or personal health for as long as you maintain the herb garden well.
You can also grow fruits and vegetables if you’re into homegrown eatables, and want to save extra.
2. Swimming pool or home spa
Health is important but so is fun. And if you are missing the good old family bonding, then installing a swimming pool is a great investment.
Dive in with your family, friends, and even pets. From having a great time relaxing in the warm water to burning extra fat to enjoying the fresh weather outside, the benefits of a swimming pool outweigh the actual cost.
You can save more on energy, pool cleaning, and maintenance with a modern pool cover installed. Talk to your patio/pool cover company for a combo deal.
Building a home spa at home is a popular trend. You can have a hot bathtub or jacuzzi installed in the backyard to have a great time with friends and family.
3. Water features
Running water looks aesthetically pleasing. Whether installing a pre-fabricated foundation or building from scratch, water features effortlessly blend into your landscape and often are a centerpiece.
For instance, a simple urn with water flowing outside, a water wall, stone pond and fountain, tiered pot fountain, teapot foundation, water jug fountain, and many more. The ideas are countless, all you need to have a clear vision about the landscape.
They are low maintenance structures that make your garden look great while drawing people to spend time outside.
Made from concrete or the traditional brick stone, driveways are a great way to add some solid foundation to the landscape. They come in different colors, shapes, and even textures.
Do not forget that the landscape flooring must match with your home exteriors. You can use contrasting stones for the parking lot though to create a distinction. Low maintenance and usually last for years without major repair.
You can save money with the choices you make for the basic construction material. Your building constructor can help you grab a cheap deal if your home is undergoing renovation.
Fencing is multi-purpose. From defining clear boundaries, keeping animals away to adding structural appeal to your property, fencing has long been considered integral.
There are different fencing ideas like a wooden fence, bamboo fence, iron gates, chicken wire fence, and pallet fence. There is adequate variety in styles, colors, and even materials.
If you are low on budget, recycled wood and junk encourage many attractive DIY projects. Anything and everything that offers strength and style to your landscaping work well for the property owners.
If you want added security, install CCTV cameras and fire alarms.
If you are up to upgrade your backyard or landscape, the options are endless. However, mot everything that you do would give you the desired returns. For instance, if you’re allergic to intense fragrance, then flowers like lily, lavender, and Jasmine are useless additions to the garden.
If you have pets like dogs or cats, then you would not want to have extra space just for the dog play and fun. Instead of growing crops in the backyard. In fact, you would want a dog house or keep a kennel in the backyard.
So, think over it.
