Many landscaping projects can be complex, and you may not want to do them yourself. For example, installing a pathway, a fountain, or a pond may be rather above your skills. However, here are three DIY landscaping ideas you should consider for your Denver home.
- Design a walkway. First, while you may not be equipped to put in all the pathways going through the garden, you can start with a short walk away from your front door to the edge of your driveway. You can design it as simple or complex as you want, but this is a project that can be done in a few hours over the weekend.
- Create a rock garden. Next, if you are interested in ways to add visual and textural appeal to your outdoor space, you can create a rock garden. A rock garden is just as easy as it sounds, and all you have to do is collect a variety of stones and pick out your space.
- Layer your plants. Finally, another way to add visual appeal to your landscaping project is to layer your plans. If you have everything on the same level and the same height, it will be difficult to showcase the unique foliage you have planted. Instead, if you plant different colors, sizes, and shapes, you will have a unique and intriguing space once everything blooms.
Landscaping your front and backyard can be a great way to add curb appeal and value to your property, but not every product can be done yourself. There may be many landscaping ideas that you will need the help of a contractor to accomplish, but these three things can be accomplished by even a novice gardener.
