Landscaping Ideas To Take Your Lawn To The Next Level

The coming of summer means longer days, warmer weather, and more opportunities to spend time in the great outdoors. If you are looking for landscaping ideas to upgrade your lawn, look no further. Whether you have a small patio or acres of land, these tips will help you find a way to make your lawn more appealing. After a few of these changes, you won’t ever want to go back inside. Here, POPS Landscaping discusses a few ideas to take your lawn to the next level.

Landscaping Idea To Consider This Season


One impactful way to upgrade your backyard is to add shade. This could be an umbrella, pergola, or shade sails. For a more luxurious look, spice up your pergola by adding outdoor curtains, a fabric roof, or hanging plants. Additionally, you can implement climbing plants on your pergola to help the structure blend more with nature and bring in color. Some good climbing plants are climbing roses, climbing hydrangea, trumpet vine and wisteria. 

Pathway Landscaping ideas

Beautiful walkways can be achieved through a variety of different materials. Most people use brick, slate, grave, or concrete to create paths through their lawns. Are you looking for something more unique? POPS Landscaping can work with you to give you the pathway of your dreams. Another way to make your walkway stand out is to build a trellis gate. This feature creates a grand entrance to the space while also adding security.


There are a multitude of ways to illuminate your yard. Highlight large trees and architectural features of your home, spotlights are a great option. For better accessibility at night, opt for LED path lights. These inexpensive lights are suitable for your energy bill and your budget. For a more charming effect, try string lighting. This is a fairly inexpensive way to make your backyard a great space for entertaining. Be sure to ask us about lighting options to best fit your outdoor needs.

Flower Bed Landscaping Ideas

Have a weird corner of your lawn that you don’t know what to do with? A flower bed is always a good idea. This can be an easy project that makes a big impression in your yard by adding life and color. Some great flowers to implement are begonias, marigolds, and snapdragons.  


There are many benefits to lawn edging. It can increase curb appeal, help prevent the spread of unwanted grass, and provide a clear path for your lawnmower to follow. One of the most common edging materials is brick. Make sure when selecting what brick you want to pick a color that matches or complements the colors on your house and your lawn. Another option is to use an artificial medium like rubber, plastic, or metal edging. These mediums are inexpensive, durable, and fairly easy to install.

Privacy Screen Landscaping Ideas

Privacy screens can be achieved through many different mediums. One way to create a privacy screen is to plant a row of trees. A beautiful tree that has great coverage is a Thuja Green Giant. This tree has dense foliage that can block unsightly views and can even be cheaper than installing a traditional privacy screen or fence. Another natural privacy screen is a hedge. Try an evergreen hedge to ensure you will have privacy all year long. Finally, wooden or metal privacy screens are a great zero-pruning option to give you a more secluded space. One quick upgrade that can make a huge difference is adding a privacy screen around your air conditioning unit. Hiding this common eyesore can make a huge change in your yard. 


If you are looking to get the most out of your outdoor space, consider adding a deck or patio. This opens up a versatile space that can be used for dining, entertaining, and much more. Additionally, according to The Trusted Homebuyer, homeowners who decide to install a deck or patio can expect to recoup around 65% of their investment. Want to make sure your deck is built safely and securely? Trust the professionals at POPS Landscaping to do it for you.


Adding mulch is one of the cheapest improvements you can make to your yard. Mulch has a variety of benefits like weed prevention, water retention, plant protection, and curb appeal. For the best application, lay down landscape fabric before laying the mulch to prevent weeds from springing up.
