Before and After Garden Makeover Ideas

Does your garden or landscape look a bit tired and worn? Perhaps you need some fresh ideas to make your landscape more appealing? The following tips can help your garden look amazing.

A water feature in your garden can create a pleasant vibe to your backyard. Running water is relaxing and it can also attract birds. The water feature doesn’t have to be big. It can simply be a floating pond fountain.

Investing in bigger (but fewer) plants can provide your garden area with more shade and privacy. A trellis of vines, or bamboo, which can be trimmed to any height, can also create privacy.

Experimenting with bright colors can make your garden pop! Dazzling flowers can add character to your garden. Perennial flowers that thrive in your North Jersey garden include: Anemone, Red Columbine, Hellebore, Painted Daisy, Russian Sage, and Peonies. You can also consider alluring hues when purchasing new outdoor furniture. Cushions or throw pillows for a lawn chair are also useful to add a splash of color.

If you’re a new homeowner and your backyard isn’t desirable, you can begin by working with what you have, rather than to demolish and begin from scratch. Repairing individual stones or mixing stones into your lawn can create a new walkway.


Assess your garden area according to how much time you have and how much space you have to work with. Hiring a landscape architect can help execute your vision.
