3 Ways to Love Your Yard this Summer

On 26 Jun, 2015 With 0 Comments

Warm summer days and breezy, starry nights are just a few of the things that might be luring you and your family outdoors over the next few months. A little bit of work and a lot of imagination could help transform your yard into your very own oasis. Whether it’s creating your own fire pit for s’more roasting or adding extra curb appeal with the most beautiful flowers in the neighborhood, here are out some of our favorite yard-loving tips here at Mohawk Home:

Pick the plants that are right for you.

This is especially relevant for those who love the look of flowers but don’t have the time to tend them. Look for low-maintenance perennials when you’re ready to plant.

Elegant Candy Daylily: As you may imagine from its name, this brightly colored re-blooming daylily is a showstopper and is known for being low-maintenance. It requires full sun to part shade in moist, well-drained soil. Click here for more info!

Use it your way.

Whether you decide to turn your patio into a place where you can relax with friends, plant a garden, or create a cool new play space for the kids, the backyard should be an extension of your home that showcases your own personality and style.
