Edging is a perfect and super quick way to make your Gretna landscaping pop! Putting in a sharp edge can be performed in a couple of ways. First, you can use an actual edger tool, and trace the edge of your sidewalks and driveway. If you don’t have an edger tool, just head to your shed and get your trimmer. Let out a little extra string and turn your trimmer on its side so that the string is spinning vertically. Then, simply trace your edges as you would with the edger! It may be a little tricky at first, but with a little practice, you’ll be a pro in no time!  After this you can expect to find your Gretna landscaping looking sharp and clean all week long.

Fresh Mulch

The power of fresh mulch can drastically increase the curb appeal of your property. It is as simple as running to your local Home Depot, grabbing a few bags of mulch, and topping off the existing mulch on your property to bring that color back! The rich color of the mulch will create a dramatic contrast between your flower beds and the rest of your Gretna landscaping. Doing so will make that green grass pop and transform your yard.

Bed Liner

Trust me, we have all been there… After just a few weeks, your new mulch is spilling out of its beds and into the yard. An effective and great-looking way to take care of this is through bed liners. Rocks and artificial rubber liners are a perfect way to keep the mulch in, and the messiness out. Doing so will create a clean and kempt feel for your Gretna landscaping. Even if you put a liner down you will still be able to plant flowers ad other plants, you just have to cut a whole in the liner to accommodate. It may seem tough to do, but in the end it will be well worth it!

Bed liner will also help keep the weeds out of your gardens and flower beds!
