How to Create A Home Oasis

Well-thought landscape design can do wonders for your curb appeal. Here’s how to start creating your oasis in just a few easy steps.

Step 1 ~ What Plants Work in Your Region?
Stroll around the neighborhood to get an idea for what plants work in your region.

Step 2 ~ Pick the Plants That Work for You
Factor in how much work you’re willing to do, since some plants require more maintenance than others. Roses, jasmine, honeysuckle or fresh herbs can provide a fresh, floral scent in your yard. Fruit trees can be fun to harvest and stay with the property, increasing its value. Try lemon and orange trees in warmer climates and plum, pear or

apple trees further north.

Step 3 ~ Choose Your Planters
Make them pop, but keep them within the style of your home.

Step 4 ~ Hang Up a Hummingbird Feeder
To create a colorful, more vibrant garden, hang a hummingbird feeder. These birds spread pollen to help your flowers grow more easily.

Step 5 ~ Maintenance Is Key!
Take some time each weekend to water the plants, remove any weeds and keep the yard space beautiful!
