While the weather has been uncooperative this year, spring will soon arrive in full bloom, and you will be eager to be outside once more. As the temperatures increase and the skies clear, the time will come for you to relax and enjoy the sunshine while working on projects around your home. Perhaps you’re considering removing old, dead shrubs or bushes from around your house and driveway and replacing them with vivid new flora. Perhaps you have some flower bed ideas to brighten up your front path. Remember to include the regions around your garage in your outdoor to-do list this spring and summer.
Greenery Can Help Your Garage Look Better
Certain bushes, shrubs, and other green plants are more suited to the Midwest climate than others. The Midwest is known for its rainy seasons, high summer temperatures and humidity, and, of course, frigid and snowy winters. Hostas, or plantain lilies, are hardy green plants that are perennial favorites among gardening enthusiasts. They’re ideal for a low-maintenance bed because of their luxuriant foliage and ease of upkeep. Other plants, such as marigolds, which repel mosquitoes, may be chosen for their pest-repelling properties.
In terms of style, scale, materials, and color, your landscaping should ideally complement your house and garage.
Trees can assist frame the structure or architectural characteristics of your house and garage, but they should not overpower or conceal it. Greenery, bright flowers, borders, edges, and curves can all help to make your home and garage look more inviting and friendly.
A Few Simple Thoughts
Consider some of these suggestions if you’re having problems deciding how to improve the appearance of your garage:
- Outside the garage windows, there are planter boxes.
- Create a walkway around your garage with new pavers or stones.
- A trellis or gate that leads to your front or side yard
- On either side of your garage door, place concrete figures of angels or animals.
- Decorate your garage door or siding with wrought iron, wood, or glass.
- In the beds around your garage, place birdhouses, birdbaths, or bird feeders.
Whatever you choose, your outdoor décor should reflect your personal style and blend well with the overall appearance of your home.
