Part of making your custom home look more presentable is to keep the lawn looking good. The look and feel of your custom home don’t only depend on the layout of each room of the house or which floor plans you decide to use – the exterior is just as important as the interior!
Clean Up the Lawn
One idea that you can follow up on is cleaning up the lawn. Snow, ice, and fallen leaves might be charming, but after a while, it won’t look as beautiful as it did. Keeping your lawn clean can impress your neighbors and help improve your standing with your neighborhood homeowners association.
Reduce Foot Traffic
Another idea is to limit the foot traffic on your lawn. When the lawn isn’t damaged as heavily, your lawn care tasks won’t be as onerous. This means that you’ll have more time to spend relaxing with your family and not having to deal with gardening tasks. Even when your grass is at its strongest, it can still be worn down. When your grass looks better, your curb appeal also benefits!
Be Careful Around Ice
Since you guide the process of your custom home design, you can decide what type of garage and driveway you want to have. However, here is something to note: be extra careful around the ice. All driveways, sidewalks, and walkways need to be kept clear of ice and snow, especially if you want to continue enjoying your hardscapes and other landscaping features.
It’s always a good idea to be prepared for whatever mother nature can bring. As the winter solstice approaches, it will only get colder. Decorating your home for the holidays can be a fun experience to share with your friends and neighbors, but you also have to make sure that it is as safe as possible.
You can still aerate and overseed your lawns. These techniques can help you strengthen the grass and make sure it survives in the spring.
