Keeping up with the Joneses: Upgrading Your Yard
Did you know that just like there are trends in architecture, paint colors, and interior design, there are also trends in upgrading your yard? I didn’t!
There are. And the most common price levels are under $5,000 for total projects.
The most popular upgrades?
Backyards are hot, hot, hot, but front yard curb appeal is still a focus for 44% of homeowners. What are they doing? Creating flower beds and borders, adding shrubs and perennials, and even planting trees. Psst…if you’re planting a tree, do it smartly.
Surprisingly, most people tackling an outdoor project are new homeowners. I don’t know about you, but I get bored with my gardens and feel the need to recreate them every few years, so I must fall into the minority here.
With the hot weather soon to be cooling, it’s a really good time to plan out your next outdoor project. Share your pics in the comments, so we can all enjoy the fruits of your labor.
