Whether you are planning to sell your Calgary home or wish to stay there for years to come, you must maintain your yard and focus on landscaping. A well-maintained and manicured landscape look delighting to potential home buyers and homeowners as well. If you are short on time and finances to maintain your home landscape, don't worry. We have got some simple and budget tips for you. Following these easy DIY home landscaping tips, you will feel good whenever you look out of your window or enter your property.

De-clutter the Area

If you are not sure where to start from, think about the first thing you see when you come home. Start from the front area and start clearing the lot. De-clutter your front yard and remove all the unnecessary things lying around such as gardening tools and hose. Also, rake the area to remove dead leaves, branches, and other debris from your front yard. Ensure you clean and clear the entire lot.

Repair the Hardscapes

Next, focus on the hardscapes such as your driveway, sidewalks, parking area, and fence. Check if any of these need touch-up or repairs. Make the necessary repairs if your home hardscapes are wearing off or chipping paint. You may have to do a little digging and construction for this, therefore, make sure you clear the mess after you are done.

Eliminate the Withering Plants

If you are one of those homeowners who don't invest time in landscaping, this one is going to take some time. Take a close look at your garden or lawn and see the growth there. If you find withering plants and shrubs or patches of dead grass, get ready to remove them from your yard. Eliminate all the dead, withering, and decaying plantations and plow the soil to aerate it well. Make your lot ready for new plantations.

Choose the Right Plants

Decide how much time you'll be able to devote to landscaping and accordingly choose plants. If you won’t be able to give much time to maintaining your landscape, select low maintenance annual plants. Choose colorful plants and shrubs to increase the appeal of your yard. You can also use ornamentals to add some beauty. Hire a local gardener or landscaping professional for assistance.

Add Accessories

This one is easy! Go shopping and find good accessories for your yard. Depending on your personality and overall theme of the house, you can get statues, colorful lights, decorative stones, vases, seating options, or a water feature. By investing in accessories, you don't have to pay much attention to your yard and can instantly make your yard and home look appealing.
