Keep it Tidy

A neat and tidy landscape assures guests that your home or office is also maintained. Try the following to maintain an uncluttered and pleasing appearance.

  • Trim and Mow Grass- Even if your office has a tiny patch of grass, you’ll want to keep it trimmed. Uneven lawns look like no one cared enough to tend to them. 
  • Prune- Trees that have water sprouts sticking out at odd angles or dead limbs dangling down look messy and unwanted. Show your guests you care by keeping up with your trees and shrubs. Professional pruning is the best bet since experts will know what and how to prune your plants.
  • Pick Up Debris- Scattered leaves, broken limbs and just random debris can turn a beautiful landscape into an eyesore. Make sure to pick up anything littering your landscaping.

Add Pops of Color

Even if you only have room for a few outdoor potted urns, add color to your office or home. Splashes of color naturally attract the eye. Make your home or office a focal point by:

  • Mulch- With a variety of colors, mulch is a great attention getter all year long. Adding a layer to small flower beds or even around bushes will create a beautiful effect that people will naturally be drawn to. 
  • Seasonal Flowers- Mix it up a little by adding different plants and flowers for each season. Your professional landscaper will be able to tell you which plants work for which season. 

Add Texture
