Building a new house is exciting because everything will be brand-new but moving into a new house also requires a lot of extra work. One of the jobs you will have after you move in is working on the landscaping needs for the yard. If your contractor did not include landscaping services in the price of the house, here are the top things you should do to start creating a nice yard.
Create a Plan for Your Yard
Before you do anything in your yard, you will need to create a plan for it. This plan should basically include where you would like to plant bushes, flowers, and trees and where you would like to plant grass. If you are planning on putting up a fence in your yard, you should also determine where you would like that to be.
The purpose of creating a plan for your yard is so that you know what steps to take to create a yard that meets your desires and needs.
Plant Grass Seed at the Right Time
The next thing on your list should be planting grass seed, but you should not do this until the timing is right. Grass seed cannot germinate if it is not warm enough outside. Because of this, you may need to wait a few weeks or months before you plant it. If you plant it during a time when it is too cold outside, the grass seed might all blow away before it can germinate. Waiting until the temperature warms up will help you prevent this problem, and this will help you save money, time, and effort.
Plant Bushes and Place Mulch or Rock Where Needed
After you get the grass seed planted, you should take the third step which involves planting your bushes and flowers and placing mulch or rock wherever it is needed. If you are not sure what types of bushes or flowers you want, then you may want to wait on this step. Even if you do not know what to plant, you could still add your mulch or rock to the areas where it is needed. By doing this, it will help your yard look a little nicer while you wait for the grass to grow.
If you follow these three steps, you will be on your way to obtaining a nice-looking yard at your brand-new house. If you do not have time to do these things yourself, hire a landscaping company like Oliver's Landscaping & Garden Service, LLC to do them for you.Share

After struggling for years, I finally scored my dream job and started to focus on redecorating my home. At first, I wasn't sure how much of an impact I was going to be able to make, but after sitting down and really focusing on the different areas of my house, it was clear to me that the main living spaces were where I needed to focus. I started working room by room to renovate the space, and it was absolutely amazing to see what we were able to accomplish. This blog is all about creating a gorgeous home--even if you are on a tight budget.
