Landscaping Around Your Garage

It doesn’t matter where your garage is situated, it could always benefit by adding landscaping. It doesn’t take much time or energy to transform your boring garage area and increase its curb appeal. Here are the top five landscaping tips to help make your garage area a great focal point when people pull up to your home.

1) Clean Up Your Driveway

Is your driveway an eyesore? Is it full of mildew or oil stains? First off, to add curb appeal to your home, you must clean up the driveway. Spend a day (or hire someone) to pressure wash the driveway to get it looking fresh and new. Also, consider planting flowers or decorative grasses along the driveway for an instantly lush and landscaped look.

2) Upgrade Your Garage Door

If your garage door is old and falling apart, there is no amount of landscaping that will help! Upgrade your garage door, or have garage door repair if it is needed. A new garage door will certainly spruce up the way your front yard looks and enhance your overall living space.

4) Native Plants & Planters

Plants are an obvious addition when sprucing up your garage with landscaping. If you don’t have a green thumb, try plants that are native to the area and require less maintenance. Stay away from plants with thorns or berries (berries attract bugs), and consider planting bushes with bright colorful flowers, like azaleas, lilies, daisies, or other easy to maintain plants and flowers. Hanging planters also look terrific on either side of a garage entrance.

5) Just Add Light

Adding some solar lights to the landscaping can quickly add ambiance and make your garage area look amazing! Installing lights over the top of the garage door provides your home a stylish and elegant look and helps alert you to when someone stops by. Choose LED or solar lights which are energy efficient and help cut down on the electric bill.
