To add some interest to a large expanse of lawn or area near a garage or front door entrance (frequently viewed area), add a colorful flowering tree like a Kousa Dogwood, Tina Sargent Crabapple, Thundercloud Plum, Adams Crabapple, or Bradford Pear. Or create a mulched island in the lawn edged with granite cobbles, plant one of the aforementioned trees and some colorful flowering shrubs and perennials.

In the fall, plant groups of spring flowering bulbs like tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and crocuses in frequently viewed areas to add some early spring color to your yard.
Bushes and ornamental trees should be trimmed or pruned once a year. If you let them go longer than a year they will continue increasing in size and will get to the point where trimming them back to the size they should be will not be possible without leaving them too "woody." Foliage grows towards the outside of the tree or bush, leaving only branches and twigs on the inside. Trimming back foliage to the appropriate size after more than a year of growth exposes these branches and twigs, leaving trees and bushes more brown than green.

Installing granite cobblestone edging is a great addition to any new or established landscape. It clearly defines the beds from the lawn and prevents the lawn from growing into the beds, eliminating the need to re-cut the bed edge every year. Granite adds a natural visual appeal to the landscape.
