Find yourself getting sucked into the world of landscaping on social media without actually having the time, energy or resources to complete half of the tutorials? We have 5 easy landscaping tips that you can make a start on this weekend, using tools you already own and skills you already have!

Whether you’re planning on selling or just wanting to improve the general feel of your outdoor space, a well landscaped garden can add enormous value to your home. 

With all this rain we have been having, you’re probably as eager as we are to get on top of those overgrown lawns and start on some gardening ahead of the cooler seasons.

Fix up the fencing

Over time, fencing and other outdoor infrastructure can become weathered, damaged, or completely broken – impacting the visual appeal of your property. Take some time to inspect fixtures throughout your yard and see what needs fixing or replacing. A well-maintained fence is crucial in ensuring the safety and security of your home and loved ones. Therefore, it is worth making regular fence repair an essential part of property upkeep.

Spruce up your front walkway

Your front entrance is the first thing you and your guests see when pulling into your driveway, so why not spend some time making it more presentable. If your front flower beds are in desperate need of a clean up, now is the time to remove weeds and give your flowers a good drink of water. If you’re listing your house, your walkway is part of a potential buyer’s first impression. So it’s worth investing in this space as it will instantly create a good ambiance for the rest of your house. Think proper outdoor lighting, neat hedges, potted plants or even a paved entryway.

Spread fresh mulch

One of the easiest landscape tasks you can get started on is laying down a fresh layer of mulch. Cover the area that surrounds your shrubs and plants as this will help reduce evaporation, prevent weed growth and moderate the soil temperature. You’ll find that this will transform the beds from looking quite dull to more appealing to the eye and nicely manicured.

Define the lawn edges

Perfecting the edges of your lawn will make the difference between an unkept outdoor space and a polished one. Our push and utility mower ranges are perfect for achieving defined edges around your lawn as these units offer wide-ranging blade sets which achieve a clean finish. This is the perfect way to keep your front yard looking schmick.
