Does your yard need a makeover?
I can help! As Your Personal Gardener I can look at your yard and make recommendations for plants to suit your unique situation. I will weed, mulch, plant, and tidy. I will even go to the store to shop with you for the perfect plants. I can put together some knockout containers for your porch and patio. Here are some before and after pictures of a recent yard makeover.
This homeowner lives in a subdivision with an association that oversees all the yards and wants to see them come up to certain standards. She hired me to spruce up the front and add curb appeal with low maintenance shrubs and plants that would blend with her neighbor’s landscapes.
It’s important to have an attractive entrance. It gives a more welcoming feel to the home. Oftentimes if we come in and out of our homes through the garage or entrance other than the front, we lose sight of what the main entrance looks like to our guests. Just a few plants and some fresh mulch boosts this home’s curb appeal.
This area was bare and lacking structure. It gets full sun so challenged the survival of any shrubs and plants situated there.
A butterfly bush will grow tall enough to screen the meters from view but still allow access to those who need to see them. ‘Fire power’ nandina can take the heat and will remain small and compact. The nandina will also keep their leaves all winter so that everything doesn’t “go away” and leave the space bare again.
If your yard needs help just give me a call or send me an email (nzee770(at)yahoo.com) and I will be happy to meet with you and offer suggestions on how your yard can go from frumpy to fabulous.
