5 Simple Steps for Landscaping in Breckenridge & Summit County

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Thursday, June 9th, 2011 at 2:56pm.

Now that the snow has melted and we've switching gears to summer, it's the perfect time to spruce up your yard and make it beautiful to enjoy outside in the warmer months. We've compiled a few tips to enhance the look of your landscaping and help create great curb appeal for your mountain home.

1. Spring Clean Up - A tidy driveway, walk way and entrance give a feeling of care and maintenance. Remove clutter around the outside of your home.

2. Add Color - Add colorful pots and hanging baskets with beautiful annuals to make your home look cheerful and inviting.

3. Add Fragrance - Choose plants and flowers with pleasing, sweet and soft aromas. Local nurseries can help you select beautiful smelling flowers that will do well in our climate.

4. Remove Dead Trees and/or Stumps - The recent pine beetle epidemic has left many lots with dead trees or unsightly remnants of those infested trees. Either flush cut and cover or grind the obvious stumps in the focus area around the house.

5. Enhance Existing Landscape - Keep your trees and perennial gardens healthy and showy. Most transplanted trees are placed in the disturbance envelope where the soil was scraped, turned over and compacted during construction. Proper fertilization and soil treatments can help improve the health and appearance of your transplanted trees. Don’t forget to prune dead, broken, and diseased branches from trees and shrubs to give that maintained look.
