Summer isn’t even here yet and you’re already talking about the fall? Yes, that’s just how life goes here at Huston Contracting. But here’s the deal…
We don’t want you wasting the summer months and early fall with a subpar landscape. We want your lawn looking lovely and your landscape lavish as the weather cools off.
So, we wanted to throw together a few quick tips on how to add curb appeal to your landscape. Although, there’s more to it than that. For example, an Olathe outdoor kitchen installed in the fall wouldn’t get a bunch of use.
However, if you installed that same kitchen in the spring, you’d have 5-6 months of use before the cold weather kicked in and you had to go back to cooking inside. What a drag!
So enough with the fluff, let’s dive in and look at a few fun ways to add curb appeal:
We may be biased, but an Olathe outdoor kitchen is a pretty great way to add curb appeal and get a ton of use out of your landscaping projects.
Seriously, we’ve found homeowners use their outdoor kitchens more than just about any other landscaping project. There’s just something about cooking a wonderful meal in the great outdoors that brings families together.
Fire Pit Fun
There’s not much better than roasting marshmallows on an open fire. So, why not add a luxurious fire pit to your Olathe landscape?
Fire pits look great, add insane curb appeal, and generally, get a lot of love during those warm summer nights and cool fall ones. Seriously, most people get a lot of use when they install a professional fire pit and it looks great.
Ok, so this might not be a huge project like the others on this list, but a little fertilizer can go a long way. With proper fertilizing techniques, you’re sure to find your curb appeal up as you landscape gets greener and greener.
Seriously, this is the best cheap way to take your curb appeal from lame to fame within the neighborhood.
Don’t Doubt the Drought
Last but not least, you should always expect a drought in the hot summer months. Your Olathe landscape just isn’t meant to cope with extreme heat.
So, you need to plan for it. This means planting drought-tolerant plants, prepping for the heat through fertilizing in the spring, and keeping those sprinklers on standby.
If you’re looking to add a little curb appeal before the fall, we’re here to help. At Huston Contracting, our job is to make your landscape look as lavish as possible. This means helping you add curb appeal in fun and creative ways. Get in touch if that sounds interesting.
