If you own a home on Lake Nacimiento, chances are, the lake is the main reason you chose to buy a home here! You love having a lake right in your backyard, either to look at and admire, or to actively enjoy with activities. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that many of you spend a lot of time outdoors, and you want your outdoor space to be attractive and enjoyable.
Whether you’re gearing up to sell your Lake Nacimiento home, and want to impress buyers with curb appeal, or you just want to improve the appeal of your yard for your own sake, there are plenty of ways you can do that without adding loads of yard work to your busy schedule. Beautiful landscaping doesn’t have to mean a ton of work! As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, here are some ideas for you to consider for your outdoor space.
1. Plant one tree. Earth Day and Arbor Day are coming up this spring season, why not take them as an opportunity to plant a tree? Planting one tree isn’t a huge effort, it’s very low maintenance once it’s established, and then it adds beauty to your landscape for generations to come. Just be sure to choose a low-maintenance tree. If you won’t take the time to pick fruit, don’t choose a fruit tree.
2. Add mulch for color. Mulch comes in many shades and is a great contrast to the green of a lawn. Add it around tree trunks, gardens or bushes for a colorful punch. All you have to do is dump it and spread it, then you’re done. Another cool idea is to use pine cones in place of mulch, to add texture to your yard.
3. Add some edging. Edging is a great way to separate your walkways, driveway or patio from the rest of the lawn. Choose low-maintenance ground covers, such as lily of the valley, lamb’s ears or vinca. Or, you could choose objects rather than plants, such as solar lights or wine bottles planted neck down in the soil.
4. Create a personal focal point. What is something that will add meaning to your yard? Do you have an old wagon or tricycle that would add nostalgia? Turn it into a garden pot! Do you have rocks or crystals you’ve gathered from vacations? Create a rock garden! Visit a local art show and invest in a beautiful sculpture or piece of yard art. Make your outdoor space meaningful to you.
