Ready to upgrade your landscaping for the summer? If so, you have come to the right place. As you know, good landscape design and installation are some of the easiest ways to upgrade your home's look and feel.
And unlike other upgrades, landscaping is affordable and something you can do on your own. If, of course, that’s something you are into. On the other hand if you are not the DIY type, it's best to hire a professional landscaping company.
Once you have decided to go for it, here are a few landscape design and installation suggestions that are guaranteed to inspire you to head outside and upgrade your yard.
Create an Outdoor Patio
Do you have some open space in your backyard? Maybe consider creating an outdoor patio space. When done right, it can be an excellent extension to your home. Use raised planters and topiaries to give it that warm cozy feeling. You can even add a few fancy fixtures if you like.

Grow Your Own Shade
If you are like most people, we all love a good sunny day. Not only is it beautiful, but it will provide you with a healthy dose of vitamin D. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t want a little shade every now and then.
The good news is you can grow your own shade. All it takes is some tropical shrubs and a few shade trees.
Build a Privacy Wall Out of Plants
If you are in need of an extra layer of privacy, a wall of plants is just what you need. Large tropical plants can be used to carve out your own little sanctuary. Not only will it be private, but it will make the perfect place for a nice quiet nap.
When choosing plants, make sure you choose wisely. Not all plants will work when it comes to building a privacy wall.
If you need a little assistance, our team of pros would love to help.
Light It Up! Up! Up!
No landscaped yard would be complete without some beautiful lights. Landscape lighting does two critical things. First, and probably the most obvious, it illuminates a path in either your front or back yard.
Secondly, it casts a glow that is very cozy and warm. The proper lighting can turn your outdoor space into a hangout for the kids or the perfect spot to spend time with the one you love.
Lighting can also serve as somewhat of a deterrent as no one likes to bother a place that is well lit.
Cover Walls With Vines
When you begin to research the various options of landscape design and installation, vine-covered walls are nothing new. However, you can do a few more modern things to give the old vine look a new twist. Instead of having the vines grow straight up and down, train them to grow in a crisscross shape.
Doing so will enhance the overall beauty of the space. If you aren’t sure how to train the vines, give us a call and let us do it for you.
These are just 5 of the many landscape design and installation ideas that you can choose from. In reality, the only limit to what you can do is your own imagination. Don’t be afraid to dream big.
As previously stated, many of these ideas can be DIY projects. However, if you don’t know what you are doing, you will end up doing more harm than good.
