1. Organize your garden hose:

There is nothing like having a tangled hose when trying to water your large garden or wash down your patio. By using a garden hose organizer you don’t have to lug around the heavy hose or worry about it getting stuck in a knot!

2. Install an irrigation system:

Installing an irrigation system is a fantastic way to manage the watering of lawns, gardens, plants and trees. By automating this you can rest assure that your lawn will always be the greenest and your plants will never wilt!

3. Hide and Protect Unsightly Sprinkler Valves:

Although, using an irrigation system helps make your yard look beautiful and green, it usually leaves you with a group or even multiple groups of unsightly sprinkler valves or valve boxes in your yard. Instead  add some style to your landscape by camouflaging those valves or boxes.Check out all the great covers!

4. Add pathway lighting:
Create a clear walkway through your lawn or garden, and don’t worry it won’t cost you more each month on your electricity bill–and it surely won’t add an extra headache of wiring! Use solar pathway lighting that lights up automatically at night!

5. Finally, Create a Relaxing Atmosphere:
Now, that you have taken the aesthetic steps to make sure your garden is beautiful and organized, why not add a fountain that will bring the soothing sounds of water to your patio, deck, porch, or garden! Once again, we know you may be thinking that this will only add to your electricity bill, but don’t worry fountains powered by direct sunlight will not only be easy to install but it will also not cost anything to operate.
