See dull, lifeless lawns transformed into belles of the boulevard. Plus, get practical tips for maintaining your own yard.
Before: Plain + Patchy
Unsightly brown grass patches made this yard look unhealthy and neglected. Overgrown shrubs only added to the messy appearance.
After: Green + Clean
Healthy, verdant grass accented with a new ornamental pathway transforms the look of this yard. To maintain a lawn this lush, be sure to keep your mower blades sharp. Dull blades will tear the tips of your grass, causing them to turn brown.
Before: A Lifeless Lawn
Dry, withered grass and dying shrubs made this home feel cold and uninviting.
After: A Yard That Oozes Cheer
Flower beds filled with fresh mulch and vibrant flowers complement the thick, green grass that now covers the yard. After a makeover like this one, maintenance is key. Not only should you weed and prune your flower beds, but you should also tend to your grass. Mow often, but adjust your mower’s cutting height to remove only 1/3 of the grass at a time. Frequent mowing allows for short grass clippings, which will decay quickly.
Before: Hidden Potential
Dilapidated railroad ties and a mix of unkempt grass and weeds were hiding this yard’s potential.
After: Curb Appeal Abounds
A new brick border and freshly mowed grass completely transform this lawn, creating major curb appeal. When it comes to a small front yard, neat and tidy is always the key to success.
