How To Modernize Landscapes At An Older Rental Property

by Administrator 22. February 2016 06:30

Nicely done landscaping can really add volumes to the look of your property. Updating an older property and its landscape does not necessarily have to be a tedious task. There are some simple tricks to spruce up the landscape at your rental property. Some of these have been discussed below:

  • Reduce the size of shrubs: Start with reducing the size of the tall shrubs. You can also get rid of tall trees that may be hampering the growth of the grass underneath. Make way for modern plant types like bonsai and potted plants.
  • Grow native plants: Instead of old and worn-out bushes, plant native varieties that grow naturally, suit the soil type and require less maintenance. They also look serene the eyes.
  • Have some seating: Add some furniture in your garden. Get weather resistant furniture and experiment with colors as well as styles in upholstery. This will add warmth and beauty to the outside space.
  • Build walkways: Instead of traditional concrete materials, make walkways of natural materials which are available in many colors. Granites, marbles and red bricks are some popular materials that look classy. These will liven up the look of your garden.
  • Use unused places: If there are areas which are barren or there are drainage systems installed, make use of that space by putting attractive garden related accessories or planting climbers. This will brighten up the unattractive portions of the space.
  • Install modern irrigation systems: Change the way you water and manure your lawn. The addition of modern irrigation systems will also help you in maintaining the garden well as well as save on water.
  • Artificial grass: One may opt for artificial turf grass instead of natural one as it gives a lush green look to your garden, all year round. They are low on maintenance and also save on effort as well as time.
  • Less is more: Instead of having too many plant types, too much grass and way too many hedges, it is contemporary to have few elegant plants in attractive pots so the space looks good to the eye.
