How to Beautify and Display Your Yard for All to See

As homeowners, we have great pride in our house and how it looks for the people who drive by. A big part of that is curb appeal and you can achieve it by having the exterior of your home washed regularly by professionals like Holy City Hydroshine, keeping your yard groomed, your bushes trimmed, and the exterior of your home in good repair. Then, when you have everything perfect, then it is time to show it off!

Here at Holy City Hydroshine, we know how important it is to have great curb appeal, so we have some tips for how to clean up your yard and share it online.

How to Improve Your Lawn

There are multiple steps that you can take to perfect your yard for yourself and the guests that you bring to your home. To start, make sure to fertilize the grass at least three times per year and add extra seed when necessary. Then, make sure to cut the grass regularly. At least once per week and set your mower so that you are cutting it down to about three inches.

Unless you get rain, you’ll need to manually water your yard. It can be tempting to water your grass every day but not only is that overkill, but you will also waste a lot of water and see higher bills at the end of the month. Instead, you can wait until the grass starts to get slightly gray or the blades of grass are not bouncing back up as fast as usual. If you have to grow more grass, then make sure that you are using high-quality seeds. Don’t go for the budget seed or you won’t get the beautiful yard that you desire.

Hire a Professional

If you don’t have the time necessary to follow these steps or otherwise care for your yard, then you can hire professionals who can beautify the lawn on your behalf. For starters, since you will need to regularly remove weeds, you should either take on that task yourself or hire a professional weed control company to come on a regular basis to do it on your behalf.

You can also hire traditional landscapers who can ensure that your yard is cut, the shrubs are pruned to perfection, your tree limbs are trimmed, and the plants are healthy. When looking for a landscaping company, make sure that you look at the reviews of previous customers and also look at the rates so you know it is something that you can afford.

Showing Off Your Yard

Now that you have perfected your lawn and the surrounding area, it is time to show off your handiwork. When you are photographing the space, use a wide-angle lens that will show off the scale of your yard, and try to take your pictures on an overcast day so the sun isn’t creating harsh shadows. Take your time here and shoot as many shots as you can from various different angles so you have many from which to choose. Feel free to add some decorative touches with strategically placed vases or other simple decor.

Social media is a great way to show the pictures of your yard to all of your friends. Take some time to look through all of your shots and pick the best options. When you have your favorites, you’ll want to crop the pictures as necessary and it is easy to change photo size by using a resizer tool. It is simple to use and once you have resized the pictures, you can upload them within moments to your favorite social media site.

As you can see, it takes a lot of love and care to create the perfect yard, but if you take the time, then you will have a lawn that you can be proud to call your own. If you would like to use the services offered by Holy City Hydroshine then contact us at 843-729-3095.
