Landscaping tips from the 16 Curb Appeal team


South Bend, Ind. If you want to create a beautiful yard, but growing pretty plants and flowers aren't really your thing, here's something to keep in mind. It doesn't always take a green thumb to improve the look of your landscaping.

From a colorful welcome mat, to a coordinating garden flag, you can update the appearance of your home with eye catching additions.

Mark Linton shares some other ideas at our 16 Curb Appeal home.

“We've got a wreath for the door,” says Mark Linton with Linton’s Enchanted Gardens. “And we strategically placed that wreath lower than normal because we've got really nice detail with the leaded glass and I really didn't want to hide that. We've also created a custom swag for above the door. Then we've got a nice bouquet of flowers just to the right of the door.”

Also, well-placed boulders can be an attractive feature to your landscaping.

Next week, we'll step into the lawn and compare the benefits of sodding, versus seeding, plus, the proper way to put down a weed barrier.
