5 Ways to Improve Your Lawn & Yard

Are you bored of the way your lawn and yard looks? Luckily, your grass can be greener on the Van Beek’s side! There are many ways to alter your lawn look to meet your personal design vision. Here are five ways to improve your lawn and yard:

Use multiple seeds and grass types

It is important to try different types of grass and seeds because some are more durable, while other types require varying amounts of sunshine and shade.

Add grading to your lawn

Adding different textures and surfaces to your lawn can create a unique look. More importantly, it can create better drainage throughout your property… no one says your lawn has to be flat!

Experiment with new shapes and lines

Add curves around trees, rock gardens, etc. this can make your lawn more visually appealing- don’t be alarmed if you don’t like the lines you create they are easy to change back!

Insert new lighting

Combining different light fixtures for functional or decorative purposes can create more usable space, make your home safer, and allow you to enjoy your grass for longer periods of the day.

Insert built-in pathways

Interlocking steps from your sidewalk to your house is a great way to keep visitors off parts of your lawn and create a charming feel to your property.
