12 Low-Cost Tips to Make Your Yard Look Even Better During Summer

GardenWith summer finally here, many home owners will put plenty of hours into beautifying their lawns and gardens. Here are 12 tips to help you save money while still making sure your yard looks its best all summer long:

1) Stay on the Lookout for Weeds
Weeds are a problem for your lawn or garden simply because they consume nutrients your preferred plants also need. Be vigilant about what you planted and if anything growing on your lawn or in your garden shouldn’t be there. As long as you pull the weeds out – roots and all – you should be safe. Some weeds may be persistent and you may need to resort to weed-killing chemicals readily available at your local hardware store.

2) Edge What You Can
Whether you’re doing it by hand, renting or buying an edger – they often cost less than $100 – edging your lawn is a great idea to differentiate your garden from your lawn, pathways or other features. It makes your lawn look cleaner.

3) Trim Overgrown Bushes and Trees
If you have big bushes in your yard that take up valuable square footage, trees with overhanging branches, or other areas where plants are growing out of control – investing time and energy to trim them back is a great idea. It will make your outdoor space cleaner with a more organized look and feel.

4) Make a Statement in Separation
When you’re trying to make your lawn look really impressive, do some extra work above and beyond simple edging – where it meets your driveway, gardens or other spots – will help it pop out more. For instance, putting up a small wooden fence or line of rocks around the edges of your garden will both help the two spaces contrast and give you a better idea of what you have to edge next time.

5) Add a Water Feature
Whether you put in a small concrete pond, birdbath or a fountain that runs from an attached hose, a water feature is an attractive addition to any garden. You can DIY most of these features, or buy a pre-made option.

6) Make a Path
While most people know not to tread on gardens, having people walk all over your lawn isn’t good for it either. Reduce possible lawn damage by laying down a path of stone, wood planks or other material, which you can get from most big-box hardware retailers. This will not only protect the lawn, but will add another attractive, eye-catching feature.

7) Contrast in Your Garden
A great way to make your garden areas more impressive is to plant flowers and other greenery that are of various colors and textures. It’s great to have a garden bursting with colorful flowers, but contrasting them with some deep green bushes, small evergreens or other plants can bring in a little more variety.

8) A Space to Enjoy
What good is a garden if you’re only viewing it from afar or as you pass through? Add some seating (such as a simple metal bench or wooden chairs and a table) to make your garden a more homey place to sit and relax. By placing the seating in the shade you will have a great place to read in the summer.

9) Bring in Containers Where it Makes Sense
Sometimes you don’t necessarily have the space to plan an entire new flower bed or other feature, but you do have an area you want to beautify a bit. In these cases, consider a large, potted plant or other type of container that will allow you to add something new without requiring a lot of digging or other work.

10) Put in Plants and Other Features Around Every Tree
When your yard has trees – whether they’re towering or merely saplings – it’s a good idea to make sure they have some company. Planting flowers around the tree bed or installing features like a birdbath or some rocks can help the whole area stand out as being just a bit more attractive.

11) Don’t Mow Too Low
When it comes to your lawn’s health overall, one of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is mowing too low to the ground. It may look great to have a nice short cut, but it’s not recommended because it hurts the lawn in multiple ways. First, short grass is more likely to dry out or be scorched in the hot summer sun. Second, it’s worse at retaining water as a general rule. Third, it often pulls up grass altogether and makes the lawn more susceptible to erosion when it rains, leading to patchy spots.

12) Plan Carefully When Adding New Features
If you’ve mastered care for other parts of your yard and you want to add a new flower bed or other feature, it’s wise to approach the job with caution. Take some time to plan out the whole area, staking it off to see how it might look before you start tearing up grass or putting down mulch.

One of the best ways to beautify your backyard or increase your curb appeal (which, for hopeful sellers, is critical to boosting their real estate sales opportunities) is to look online for some inspiration. A quick search on Pinterest may turn up plenty of options that will help you make your home a more satisfying place to live.

Why It’s a Great Time To Buy a Home This Summer

welcome mat in front of new homeMulling options to buy a new home this summer? Don’t hesitate – this might be one of the best times to buy a home for a number of reasons.

With the second half of 2019 nearly here, it’s important to understand how other potential homeowners felt heading into the spring shopping season. According to a recent survey from the National Association of Realtors®, 65% of respondents thought the market was a favorable time to buy a home.

Why Conditions Could Shift
Usually, when a majority of Americans believe it’s a good time to buy, similarly large numbers also think it’s a good time to sell. It’s classic supply-and-demand, and when buyers feel good, there’s more incentive for sellers to put their homes on the market, especially after years of home price increases and more recent mortgage rate drops. Indeed, 69% of those polled said they felt now was a good time to sell.

Benefits of Buying in Summer
While some people might think shying away from the market in summer months is advisable because that’s when competition is hottest, there are plenty of benefits to buying at this time of year. One of the biggest is that it’s also the time when the supply of homes for sale is greatest. Moreover, moving in summer is often easier from a logistical standpoint – especially if you have kids. Not only is the weather more likely to cooperate with your plans to move out of your old place and into the new one, but giving kids some extra time to adjust to their new homes before the start of school is often a priority for parents.

In addition, because of the supply issues that usually come later in the year, if you decide to wait to begin your search until summer is winding down, you might see your actual home search take longer, potentially pushing your actual purchase back to November or December.

As with any other decisions related to buying a home, it’s wise to work closely with a real estate professional to ensure you’re getting into the market at the right time and ensure you can get the best possible deal on your purchase.
