Summer in Florida can be hot and humid but there’s nothing like a neighborhood barbeque in your backyard. Prepare your home for guests with some landscaping upgrades in the backyard.
We suggest Martin Garcia with Extreme Cutz to many of our buyers who want to make their yard stand out for all the right reasons. The photo collage below is a beautiful example of Martin’s work.
When improving your landscaping, you will want to make sure to abide by your HOA guidelines. Many Home Owner’s Associations require homeowners submit an application for changes to beds or addition of trees or shrubs.
To get a similar look, try the following:
Define plant beds. Widen existing plant beds and add new ones to bring visual interest toward the house.
Use materials that are low maintenance. A rock bed instead of mulch can be lower maintenance and make it easier to spot snakes lurking. A stone or concrete border can make keeping up with the edging easier.
Plant trees and flowers native to Florida. When planning your landscape design, try to stick with plants native to Florida. They will be more likely to thrive in the climate. You can get some ideas to start at Floridayards.org.
