One of the many great things about living in the Pacific Northwest is the chance to garden and landscape. Beautifying your home and yard is something that pays off both short-term and long-term and it can be relaxing and fun too!

Extra Storage in Olympia has self-storage that can help aid in your landscaping. Below are 3 self-storage tips for your Olympia landscaping.


First, Get Creative  


Landscaping can be a unique form of expression, so be sure to use every resource you have to get creative and make it fun.

Gazebos and trellises are inexpensive and easy ways to spruce up your lawn and garden. Another great idea is to plant different types of flowers. Olympia’s unique weather allows for all sorts of different flowers and shrubs to thrive.

If you have items you’d like to switch out seasonally like lawn decor, we have Olympia storage units that can hold whatever you need for as long as you like until you’re ready to use it again.


Second, Start With the End in Mind  

To truly create a beautiful and unique landscape, start your project with the end in mind. It might make sense to break your project into steps and celebrate the wins when you reach those milestones.

Don’t lose sight of the main goal, which is whatever gorgeous landscape you have in mind. It might seem overwhelming or daunting, but as long as you don’t lose that vision, you’ll be able to keep working towards your goal. In the meantime, as you’re working on your end goal, consider using Extra Storage’s Olympia storage to help store any tools you used for your projects.


Third, Consider Maintenance   

Since Olympia’s weather allows for so many variants of plants, trees, and shrubs, it may be easy to get carried away and go all out. Before you plant, however, consider what maintenance will be required. 


Some trees require lots of trimming, pruning, and fertilizing. Some plants require very specific amounts of sunlight or rainfall. It’s a good idea to do some basic research before planting and landscaping so you don’t regret the amount of work you need to put in later!
