Best Summer Garden Additions For Your Virginia Beach Home

Virginia Beach is one of the top places to summer, which often results in tourists-turned-renters staying longer than they thought! It’s no surprise to us, though, as Virginia Beach is one of the most beautiful coastal towns along the East Coast. If you’re looking to make your residential rental property pop for new residents, we recommend updating your garden beds. Virginia Beach has a unique atmosphere that’s great for growing some seriously beautiful blooms, which can give your home an instant facelift and boost your curb appeal with minimal effort. Below, we’re uncovering a few ways to turn your garden into a residential sanctuary and offering tips and tricks to help you to maximize the return that your rental property can get you.

1. Beautify Your Garden Beds

Even if you own a smaller-size residential rental, you can turn your yard into a beautiful sanctuary for pollinators, butterflies, and beach town birds. Your resident will appreciate being able to take in the sights of the natural beauty from their kitchen window or porch and will appreciate the effort put in to make your house a true home. If you haven’t already, it’s time to invest in the topsoil and other gardening supplies you’ll need to make this project a success. Be sure to stop by Anderson’s in Virginia Beach to pick up some dazzling seasonal blooms and additions to your Virginia Beach home garden.

Looking for inspiration? Here are some great additions that will do beautifully in the balmy Virginia Beach temperatures:

  • Watermelons
  • Eggplants
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Inkberry Holly
  • Coneflower
  • Eastern Bluestar
  • Zinnia
  • Lantana
  • Lily of the Nile

Now that you have everything you need for your garden makeover, it’s time to move on to the second step: setting the scene.

2. Add An Art Installation

You don’t have to exclude art from your yard simply because it’s outside! There are several different ways you can put an art installation right into your yard that will be safe for all types of weather–including beach storms. Community favorites include locally-inspired art pieces or sculptures, capturing the essence of the coastal beauty and beachside atmosphere. However, you can also invest in other forms of decorative “art” that tie your outdoor space together; such as arbors or pergolas, or even different types of sculptured lighting pieces.

No matter what decor you settle on, consider exploring the offerings at Sunshine & Sweet Pea’s Coastal Decor. They have all of the aesthetic beach pieces that you could want for both the exterior and interior of your home! Looking for something a little less “beachy? Kirkland’s Home is the place for you!

3. Fence Off Your Garden

Fencing off your garden can add a new “second location” to your yard and work to defend your plants from bigger predators or from being trampled on. This multifunctional installation will be worth it and can add a sense of dimension to your yard. If you currently have a fence around your yard or garden area, consider adding a fresh coat of paint to really make it pop from the curbside. If you haven’t yet, consider installing one for the variety of benefits that we’ve named above. You’ll be surprised at how “separate” it can be from the yard, giving you the perfect little plot to build an outdoor respite in. For all things paint and lumber, take a trip to the Kempsville ACE Hardware Store.
