Here at Vision Green Landscaping, we believe your landscaping needs maintained and upgraded just like the rest of your home. There are several ways you can upgrade your landscaping in Charlotte, depending on what you intend to do. If you will be entertaining guests often, you may want to consider a patio or other area for entertainment. Whatever the reasons are, here are 6 ways to upgrade your Charlotte landscaping in 2020.
Hardscaping is the part of landscaping that utilizes non-living elements. If you’re looking for a way to upgrade your Charlotte lawn in 2020, adding a hardscape project is a great idea. A concrete patio is a wonderful addition to your lawn. It can serve a purpose for grilling and entertaining guests during the summer or serve as the spot to relax and watch the sunset. For a more classic look, you could opt for a brick patio instead. Flagstone and tile patios are also an option. Check them out and see what fits you best. And if you have a balcony, you can also consider some great options for balcony gardens, too.
Another hardscape project you can tackle is adding a walkway. Heavy slabs of stone can be used to create a beautiful, natural looking walkway through your lawn. Gravel paths offer a softer look than large stones, concrete or brick and stone pathways are perfect for garden paths.
One of the most important things you can do to upgrade your Charlotte landscaping in 2020 is to inspect the plants that are already there. Pull up unsightly dead plants and bushes so you can make room for new, vibrant plants. Also take this time to trim the bushes in your lawn to keep them tidy.
Retaining walls are created to hold soil behind them. Not only will a retaining wall enhance your lawn, but it will also aid in the prevention of soil erosion. A retaining wall is a great way to section off part of your lawn for decorative plants and bushes.
The same blocks used to build a retaining wall can often be used to build a fire pit. You’ll have to check with your local regulations about fire pits and burning, but a fire pit is another way you can upgrade your lawn. Once you have identified a safe place for your fire pit, start by building a layer of compacted gravel on the bottom and work your way up. Place a few chairs around the pit and enjoy your new hang out spot.
Adding a water feature to your lawn isn’t as hard as it may sound, depending on what you’re wanting. You can add a simple fountain and pond with ease to upgrade your lawn. Rubber liners are available that allow you to shape your pond into just about any shape you desire, so you can truly make your lawn your own.
Upgrading your Charlotte lawn in 2020 doesn’t have to be time consuming or costly. There are several simple things you can do for your lawn to look its best. Add a patio to your lawn. This can be done with concrete, bricks, tile, or flagstone depending on your style. You can also add a walkway to your lawn, whether it’s a softer gravel path or a stone slab walkway.
