If you want to improve the view of your Winchester, MA, property, there are ways to combine masonry and landscaping features for an ideal finished look. Here are some ideas for updating and enhancing the visual appeal of your landscape this spring:
Add Plantings to Retaining Walls
If you have a retaining wall on your property or wish to add one, give this masonry structure a natural touch by adding plantings to it. Creeping vines and other greenery along the tops of the retaining wall can have a lovely effect. You can also have flower pots placed on the ends of the retaining wall to show off bountiful blooms and lush foliage. For an even more expansive visual with plantings, your landscaping company can include a garden bed on the top of the retaining wall that is filled with your favorite flowers and plants.
Include Landscape Curbing Along Walkways
To give your walkways a new look, consider having landscape curbing built along the sides of the pathway. Landscape curbing will add a new visual to your paver walkway and separate the path from the lawn area, stone, or mulch that are situated next to the route to your door or backyard patio. In addition to adding landscape curbing to walkway borders, you can also have this masonry feature added around your garden beds.
Add Fresh Mulch to Your Landscaping
Fresh, colored mulch offers a new look and a clean appearance to landscape beds and other areas of the landscape. Along with keeping moisture in to minimize watering requirements for plantings, mulching can also help prevent weeds from being a persistent problem in the garden bed.
Combine Backyard Patio and Plantings
Your backyard patio likely sees a lot of use, especially in the warmer weather months. You can increase the use of this area by making it even more lovely with the addition of flowers and plants. Add plantings to any garden beds surrounding the paver patio for a colorful addition to the landscape. You can also have your landscaping company add masonry planters to the patio and fill them with florals and foliage for you to enjoy.
Consider Front Yard Outdoor Lighting
A new paver driveway added to your property will give the landscape a brand-new look, but there are other details to consider at the same time. To make this area of your front yard even more visually pleasing, add outdoor lighting along the driveway. Landscaping experts can add entryway lights to show where the driveway entrance is for ease of access during the evening hours. For an extra lovely visual, have outdoor lights installed along the length of the driveway to help visitors find their way to your door—and make it an inviting route. Take the lighting features one step further by having the same outdoor lights lead from your driveway along the paver walkway to your front entrance.
