Wanting to freshen up your garden without spending thousands of dollars? Here are three ways to liven up your curb appeal without breaking the budget:
- Install Native plants, prairies and perennial gardens: Native plants are low maintenance plants, requiring little upkeep and minimal water. They are also less prone to disease and reduce CO2 from the atmosphere through carbon sequestration.
- Smart Irrigation: Installing a smart irrigation system lowers the risk of overwatering. These systems use real-time weather data to generate an optimized watering plan for your home. Many of these systems also create a program specific to locations and vegetation of each watering zone.
- Variation is Key: Pottery prevents boredom by allowing you to seasonally change plants and flowers. Pots require less water output because the areas to water are controlled. A mixture of greenery and seasonal florals creates depth and visual interest, adding an instant pop to your outdoor space.
