    fall landscaping ideas

    When crisp temperatures lead to gorgeous foliage, it’s time to celebrate the beginning of fall. From festivals to fire pits, there are so many reasons to enjoy this time of year. To fully take advantage of all fall has to offer, many homeowners decorate their properties to celebrate the holidays. Here are festive landscaping ideas perfect for fall that can also add style year-round.

    Begin with Clean Slate for Fall

    Before you begin deciding on which backyard landscaping ideas to utilize, it’s time to give your space a thorough sprucing up. Start by raking leaves and taking care of your lawn ahead of the cooler weather. Remove branches and cut the grass to provide a clean canvas for your fall décor. Other easy steps to take that will set the stage for all your backyard garden ideas include:

    • Mulch: Adding mulch to plant beds and garden areas doesn’t just make your property look tidier. It also acts as a natural root protector from frost.
    • Refresh shrubbery: Now is a great time to trim shrubs or even add more to areas in your backyard that need extra love.
    • Prepare garden for winter: While you’re at it, this is an ideal time to clear the garden of summer vegetables and get ready for the winter months by creating compost and preparing the soil for new plants.

    garbage can storage

    Nothing ruins curb appeal like stray trash cans strewn about your front or side yard. No matter how much time you spend on gorgeous landscaping and outdoor décor, those pesky bins not only create a cluttered look, they can also invite unwanted guests like rodents and insects. Utilizing a garbage can storage shed is an easy way to maintain curb appeal and avoid pests in your yard. Here are some creative ways to conceal garbage and keep your lawn looking great in every season. 

    Why Use a Shed for Garbage Can Storage? 

    There are several reasons why a trash can shed is a solid investment for your property. The addition will provide several benefits including: 

    • Keep wild animals away: If you have trash cans sitting outside of your home unsecured, chances are a wild animal could become interested in what’s inside. Animals like raccoons are notorious for scavenging through trash cans, causing a mess and even dangerous situations if they are in bad health and attack a human or a pet. Other animals like bears can also become interested in loose trash cans. Putting ammonia on trash can lids can successfully keep animals away.

    4 Quick Ways to Increase Curb Appeal

    Whether you're looking to sell your home or just want to freshen your home's exterior, increasing your curb appeal offers homeowners many benefits. What types of products do you need to make your house look presentable and organized? What can you do to make your home look the best so that you can maintain its value and be more marketable?

    With some easy spruce-up tips and elegant products, you can make any property look better. Here are four quick ways to boost your home's curb appeal.

    Curb Appeal: Why It Matters

    How your house looks plays a large role in its function and value. If you have an HOA to keep up with, maintaining excellent curb appeal is especially important. Letting your home’s appearance slide can result in fines and nuisance notices. When it comes to personal enjoyment of your home, having an attractive exterior with a neat yard reduces stress and makes you more proud of your home. On top of this, a home with good curb appeal is more valuable in the real estate market.

    In any neighborhood, the house with landscaping, organized sheds, and power-washed exterior looks far better than the one with overgrown weeds and junk around the yard. Thankfully, it doesn’t take a lot of time or cost thousands of dollars to fix these minor problems. By maintaining its curb appeal, you can save your home's reputation and keep its value as high as possible.
