To improve your landscape, you can also plant grasses. Ornamental grasses do not break the bank account and some of them are absolutely stunning. The one thing with grasses is that some varieties need a lot of water, so you should keep that in mind. You can get grasses that grow very tall and you can get others that do not grow very high. This is great for areas where you can plant the tall grasses in the back and the lower grasses in front.
Keep unused equipment out of site from places that are seen from the street. When you are done working in your yard, take the wheelbarrow and hide it behind the shed, garage or house. Your gardening tools should be kept in either your shed or garage when not in use. Do not leave them strewn all over your yard.
Keep bushes and hedges pruned all the time. The best way to do this is by buying some power clippers. If you don't have any, clip the bushes and hedges as you see them begin to lose their shape. There are many bushes such as the Japanese yew and boxwoods that need to be trimmed and pruned for esthetic purposes. In fact yew are very affordable and are so easy to shape. You can have a yew shaped as a cube, a ball or a unique shape and it will always look good.
There are many reasons people do not have the ideal yard. Many people fear that giving their yard a facelift can be problematic or hiring a professional landscaper is costly, but you can do some simple landscaping by yourself and get everything you need from your local home and garden store.
Furthermore, some of your big home and garden stores have people who can help you design your own landscape and guide you in buying plants. This eliminates the cost of hiring a landscape architect and spending on thousands of dollars on a small yard which you can do by yourself.
