This year, we are encouraging you try something new. New Years is usually about resolutions to create a new “you.” The best landscaping new year’s resolutions include doable goals that will help us enjoy life more and be the people we want to be.
When it comes to our home environment and outdoor living spaces, the choices we make can affect our desire to spend time outdoors, our overall health and wellness, our impact on the environment, and our ability to spend time with people who are important to us.
With this in mind, here a few Omaha Landscaping New Year’s resolutions to help you meet these goals.
Omaha Landscaping New Year’s Resolutions
Our Omaha landscaping new year’s resolutions are geared toward providing you with a gorgeous, healthy, and functional landscape come the spring, so you can enjoy your lush landscape all year long!
Improve Your Patio
Improving your patio should definitely be on your list of resolutions this year, particularly because this is where you, your family and your friends spend time outdoors, enjoy each other’s company and make memories.
It may be as simple as replacing the cushions on your patio furniture, sprucing up your patio decor or adding a little lighting.
If that is not enough, you might need to step up your patio-improvement game and install a built-in barbecue grill or patio fireplace, replace your concrete patio with paving stones, or increase seating options for your guests.
The most important part of improving your patio is creating outdoor living spaces that will entice you to spend more time outdoors and entertain more often.
Add something special to your landscape
Put in a few extra perennials or add a water feature to the middle of your garden. Adding something extra this spring could really make a difference in the appearance and value of your home.
During the Spring, we recommend re-mulching your landscape beds. Industry standards suggest 2 inches of mulch coverage. There are numerous benefits of mulching, such as retention of constant soil temperature for your trees and plants, which protects them from drying out. Mulch also acts as a weed barrier, and its coverage prevents frost-heaving during the Winter by protecting plant roots.
Keep up with weeding those flower beds/pots
Tidy up your flower beds/pots this season by keeping up with the constant popping of weeds. Keeping up with the chore on a regular basis makes for less work for you throughout the warm months. Create a real focal point for your home that you’re proud of.
Science tells us that happy people know how to savor their experiences. All work and no enjoyment makes any gardener or landscape maintenance provider a stressed-out, less joyful human being. Therefore, take the time to smell your roses – or gardenia, jasmine or viburnum – in the New Year.
