Make your home the prettiest in the neighborhood – refresh your Bennington landscape with these top trends
Livable Outdoor Spaces
Add a deck or patio.
Great for entertaining or for lounging, a deck or patio is a must-have feature. If natural stone or brick patio pavers are out of your budget, concrete pavers are a budget-friendly alternative.
Enhance your lighting.
Enjoy your patio in the evening with the right lighting. LED and solar are becoming increasingly popular. Use strings of lights, torches or LED glass pavers that you can incorporate into the landscape.
Homeowners are turning their patios into outdoor living rooms. Create a comfortable oasis with oversized sofas, armchairs and tables made for the outdoors.
Gardening for Wellness
It’s no secret that whole foods are the keys to good health. Many people have turned to their own yards to grow the foods required for good nutrition.
Prepare your soil.
Healthy, fertile, well-drained soil yields healthy plants. Send a soil sample to a lab for a complete analysis of the nutrients in your soil.
Plant what you love.
Popular plants to start a garden with include pole beans, squash, tomatoes, peppers, and salad greens.
No yard, no problem!
If you don’t have the yard to grow a garden, grow what you love in containers instead. Find a sunny spot on your deck or patio, and arrange your portable garden for optimal light.
