Many Palm Harbor, Florida, residents have made it a New Year’s resolution to improve their homes in 2015, and making your yard better is a key step toward a better overall home. A well-groomed outside space won’t only increase your home’s curb appeal but also provide you with a great place to relax and entertain, and here in Florida, it’s easy to entertain outside all year long. Here are three great ways to make your yard the best on the block this year.
Trees, hedges, bushes and other plants are a big part of any yard’s overall look and feel, and if they’re not properly trimmed, the whole yard suffers. As 2015 gets under way, it’s time to break out the hedge trimmers, weed whackers and other implements to get your bushes under control. Many homeowners are comfortable doing some hedge trimming themselves, but to really get that clean, well-maintained look that will make your yard pop, consider investing in professional tree and hedge trimming.
There are few things that can hurt the overall appeal of your yard faster than an ugly, rotting tree stump. One option is to have that stump dug out, though that can be an expensive, invasive process. Digging up a stump also has a chance of interfering with underground power lines and water pipes, and if nothing else, the hole has to be filled and covered. Grinding is a less invasive procedure that still removes that unsightly stump from your property, making it a more effective option in some cases. Besides improving your yard’s aesthetic appeal, either option will eliminate the potential trip hazard of a stump and remove a potential safe haven for termites, bees, snakes and other pests.
Having a dead or aging tree on your property isn’t just an eyesore; it’s a potential safety hazard, especially during a hurricane or other storm. Falling trees can seriously injure people and destroy property, making their safe removal a top priority for any homeowner. Of course, there are many other reasons you might want to remove a tree from your property: Perhaps it’s growing too close to overhead power lines or encroaching on your home, threatening your foundation with its root system. Removing those unsightly and unsafe trees is a critical part of yard maintenance.
