HOA LanscapingSo many things in life require a lot of time, money, and stress. Fortunately, enhancing your landscaping isn’t one of them! Here are five easy ways to add value and a WOW factor to your HOA without breaking the bank…

Plant Around Focal points

There are some spots around your HOA that you would like to be more visible and attractive then others, these are great places to plant some beautiful, eye-catching plants. This may include:

  • Entrances
  • shared facilities
  • street corners
  • stop signs

If you have limited green space, using planters are always a great option.

Add Mulch

Mulch added around trees/planters, or in flower beds give new life to plants and flower beds. New mulch will help block weeds from growing and make your beds bore sustainable. Mulch also retains moisture to hydrate plants and will save you money on your water bill. Mulch can blow away and wear down over time and should be added annually.

Keep Up With the Changing Seasons

Keeping your flower beds and/or planters filled with color all year long is any easy way to enhance your HOA landscape. Just because the temperatures change, doesn’t mean your flower beds and planters can’t change with them. Some seasonal plants with color are:

  • Spring and Summer: zinnias, blue salvia, lantana, duranta, and dragon wing begonias.
  • Winter: pansies, cabbage, tulips, snapdragons, violas, winter daphne odora and daffodils.

Prune and Rejuvenate 

This process is also known as hard-cut back during the winter months. This will make overgrown areas look well maintained and will allow them to flush back in the spring. This will also help you keep the neat and beautiful look that homeowners want.

Update On-Site Furnishings

An easy way to add value to your HOA property is to update your on-site furnishings. This may include: 

  • Garbage cans
  • Benches
  • Chairs
  • Lounge Furniture, tables, umbrellas around a pool area
