4th Of July Landscaping Tips for your Holiday Weekend

Show Off The Stars & Stripes

Want to make your lawn look like the American flag? Attach a weighted lawn striping roller behind the blades of your mower. Then alternate between mowing your lawn from left to right, and then right to left. The weighted roller will bend the grass at different angles depending on which direction you go. Once you’re done, take a second look – thanks to the light’s reflection, it’ll make it look as though your lawn as stripes! Add a few silver stars to the top left of the lawn, and you’ll have a patriotic lawn that will amaze your neighbors!

Patriotic Garden Bed

Want to get creative? Strategically plant white, red and blue-colored flowers in a rectangle flower bed to form a flowery American flag. You can also plant them directly into the ground for a similar effect (shown below)

I am always told by my neighbors that I have the best looking
yard in the neighborhood…which I do. That is because of Mountain View

wonderful water feature. My yard is beautiful and always looks perfect. The
