Landscaping. In Lake Havasu. Pretty simple, right? Well, if you want to sell your Havasu property anytime soon, you need to think about how the outside of your home looks to potential buyers. Last week, I offered up some ideas for staging the inside of your home on a budget. But as summer gives way to fall and the temperatures (eventually) begin to dip down to a more reasonable level, you should think about getting your home's exterior into shape as well. These easy landscaping DIY projects might help you with some simple ideas that create a big impact once completed.

Whether you plan on selling your Lake Havasu home soon or simply want to refresh your property's look, these easy landscaping DIY projects take little time or money to complete but pack a powerful punch to your curb appeal. Liz Miller Lake Havasu Az

Easy Landscaping DIY Projects

Create a Pathway

Click here to search Lake Havasu homes for saleTo guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway. You can use materials from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones, gravel, and more to add texture and color. This easy landscaping DIY project can be completed over a weekend, too.

Add a Wall or Border

Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look to your landscaping. It also helps separate different sections of your yard.

Install a Water Feature

Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water as you relax in your backyard. You can start simply by purchasing and installing a small feature powered by a solar panel. These only take a matter of a couple of hours to install. Or create a larger focal point in your yard by installing a waterfall wall or small pond.

Light Your Way

An easy way to transform your yard (and an easy landscaping DIY project) is to strategically use lighting. Place cool-colored lights high in trees to recreate a moonlight feel. Use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye. Or highlight objects or plants with small spotlights.

These sound great ways to make a yard look wonderful. We have just bought a new home, and are considering what to do with our new yard.
