A yard filled with overgrown bushes, trees with low lying branches, and uncut grass is just as startling as a stretch of land that is brown, barren, and devoid of any plant-life. Your yard might not be getting a lot of use simply because you don't like the way it looks, but it can be fixed up by spending a little of your spare time wisely. Having a manicured lawn and yard will make you feel prideful and also will impress your neighbors, so here are the four best ways that you can reshape your outdoor space so that it looks neat and presentable.

1. Start With the Lawn - Rake the leaves, mow the grass, or put down some sod. When the lawn is filled with healthy, green grass, it is harder to notice other distractions in your yard. With the leftover grass clippings and fallen leaves, you can create nutrient rich compost that you can use in the future to keep your lawn healthy and lush.

2. Get Rid of Branches and Overgrown Trees - If you have an older tree, it must be taken care of or else it may get sick or even begin to die. Have a tree service company trim away any branches that may create a hazard, as well as pick up any large, heavy branches that are cluttering up your yard. Ask professionals like those at Pete & Ron's Tree Service, Inc. about cutting down sick trees, removing tree stumps, and generally giving your lawn a more appealing appearance.

3. Manicure Your Bushes - All you need are a pair of quality sheers to keep your bushes in order. Whether you have bushes in your yard to give you privacy, create a perimeter around your property, or simply to add dimension to the property that surrounds your home, they must be kept looking neatly trimmed. For larger bushes, the services of a tree trimming company may be needed if you cannot reach the top safely on a ladder.

4. Add Plants With Color - Although a green yard signifies health, nature also hosts a variety of vibrant colors. Plant some flowers so that their blooms fill your yard with cheerfulness and warmth, or start planting vegetables so that you have a reason to regularly maintain your backyard space. You can ask a tree service company to deliver and plant young trees to add shade to your front yard and help keep your home cooler.
