Control4 Has some great ideas for Summer home improvement projects:
1. Update Your Landscaping
When it comes to summer, out is in. With all the time you’ll spend outdoors soaking up the sun, your landscaping should be more than an afterthought. The long days and beautiful weather make summer the perfect time to refresh your yard and create a personal oasis.
You might create a serene escape with a calming new water feature, add landscape speakers for streaming music, or make your yard work for you by growing vegetables and herbs. Either way, you’ll be looking for excuses to spend more time outside.
2. Utilize Smart Sprinklers
Once your yard is the talk of the neighborhood, you’ll want to take care of it. Smart sprinkler systems can make watering a breeze and allow you to easily control your watering schedule. You can even watch your lawn thrive with a system that adjusts watering based on the weather.
If your landscaping requires more specialized watering, try a smart drip irrigation system. You won’t have to worry about overwatering your lavender or under-watering your hibiscus. Smart irrigation will beautify your landscape while you hardly have to lift a finger.
