Spring Landscaping: Three Ideas for Your Miami Yard!

Spring is here, so bring life into your backyard with a refresh! Blaum Landscaping in Miami can help you create the perfect space in your backyard or front lawn. Here are three landscaping ideas that never go out of style.

Hardscapes Bring Structure

Whether it’s a trendy stone pathway to your front door or a brand new fence around your home, hardscapes can bring a sense of structure to your space and make your house look more artfully designed.

Hardscapes can take your outdoor space to the next level, and even provide some practical benefits. Hardscaping involves building and/or installing structures alongside the landscape’s natural aspects. Landscapers perform this procedure to complement the land’s beauty while providing additional functionality. 

For example, a new walkway will add to your home’s architecture while also being a practical way to avoid stepping on your lawn and getting your shoes dirty before walking inside. Some common hardscape features include:

  • Patios (brick, concrete, tile)
  • Paver Designs (brick, concrete, tile)
  • Walkways (gravel, stone)
  • Fences (wooden, PVC, wrought iron)
  • Decks
  • Gazebos
  • Retaining Walls

It might not seem challenging to install some tiles or a wooden fence, but hardscaping is (no pun intended) hard work, even under the best weather conditions and with the best tools and materials. Beginning a hardscaping project is often a challenging endeavor that requires expert knowledge to make sure your hardscapes look spectacular and last for years to come. 

Landscaping design and hardscaping services are popular with both residential and some commercial owners. No matter how large or small your property is, a landscaping service can provide benefits.

Fresh Plants for the Spring

Another landscaping idea that’s great for the springtime in Miami is giving your garden a much-needed update with some fresh plants! Our team at Blaum can design a modern tropical landscape for your home’s outdoor spaces by recommending which plants are best suited for your garden and your lifestyle. 

Some homeowners have more time than others to take care of their plants, so we can recommend either low-maintenance or high-maintenance plants. Our design experts can also guide you to choose plants that will look best in your space, no matter the architectural style of your home. 

Whether you want a modern tropical landscape or a Tuscan escape, Blaum can make sure you choose Florida-friendly plants for your garden. Some of the most beautiful plants fit for the hot and humid weather down here include colorful hibiscus flowers, luscious green foxtail fern plants, and delicate angel’s trumpet flowers.

Angel’s trumpet flowers come in several different colors and could be a graceful, gorgeous addition to your spring landscape!

Drink up! Professional Irrigation for Your Landscape

Last but certainly not least, we encourage installing a good irrigation system for your landscape, as it plays a crucial role in the health of your lawn and garden. While South Florida gets plenty of rain, there are certain periods of time in the year where rain is not as consistent, so the only source of water for your plants, grass, and flowers would be from manually watering your landscape yourself. 

However, if you have a larger landscape, or even if you have a busy schedule, manually watering your plants can be a lot of work to keep up with regularly. Without an adequate amount of daily water, your greenery will begin to dry up, as well as wither. This is where a full-scale irrigation system comes in. 

Along with our landscaping design services, we offer exceptional irrigation services that are sure to keep your property-rich and lush. Regardless of the size of your property, we will adapt an irrigation system that adequately meets your land’s needs. 

Already have an irrigation system? Our experts can examine it and determine how we can improve it or replace sections as needed. You’ll never have to worry about taking time out of your day to care for your lawn ever again manually.
