Planting bulbs in the yard of your rental property can help keep the landscaping looking nice with minimal maintenance for most of the year. Bulbs are hard to mess up, so you don’t need an especially green thumb. They’re also very economical too. Planting bulbs allows you to have hassle-free flowers each year. It also makes renters feel like you go the extra mile to make the property nice.
Now, the hardest part of planting bulbs is planning on where to plant them. You will want to clear out an area of a flower bed or along the driveway or parking lot. You don’t need anything fancy, because bulbs look gorgeous even if you only use river stones. Just make sure the area is somehow marked off so that when the bulbs are still starting to adapt to your property, they won’t get trampled on while they are still young.
Tulips, crocuses, and February Snowdrops are usually the first bulbs to bloom. So, make sure you have some of those planted. It’s a really nice feeling for tenants and a great attention grabber when you have the only blooming yard in the neighborhood for a month in the spring. For summer blooming, add a backdrop of purple coneflower, verbena or asters. If you plant the bulbs in moderately spaced groups, it will create a beautiful effect. One of the most impressive flowers that people are drawn to is dahlias. These are great for any big bare spots. The cool thing about bulbs is that if you don’t like where you planted them, they are easy to move to a new position or even into containers.
