Ever get the itch to do a DIY project? It’s a great time to get outside and add some landscaping features to your yard. Go simple or go big. Either way you can’t go wrong.
Create a pathway.
A great pathway will guide visitors through your yard. You can use materials such as reclaimed pallet wood, flagstone or gravel to add texture and color.
Add a wall or border.
Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look to your landscaping. Borders also help separate different sections of your yard.

Install a water feature.
Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water. Think “oasis”. You can start simple by installing a small water feature powered by a solar panel. A larger focal point could be a waterfall or even a small pond. For ideas and assistance planning a water feature visit Kim’s Home and Garden Center, a Huntsville gardening favorite.
Light your way.
An easy way to transform your yard is strategically placed lighting. Cool-colored lights high in trees recreate a moonlight feel. Solar charged lights can guide you on your evening strool stroll or can highlight objects or plants.
Expand your yard space by drawing the eye to the sky with a trellis fence or screen made of wood or metal. Once you install your trellis, select climbing plants and vines from a local nursery like Rocking D Nursery.
The rains have sub-sided and the sun is out. There is no better time to enjoy your yard than right now!
