In the world of living in a mobile home, creating an outdoor space that looks beautiful without needing a lot of work is an art. As residents of sunny Florida, we’ve got the first “L” down — location. Now, let’s talk about the other two “Ls”: landscaping and low maintenance. Learn how to make your mobile home’s outdoor area a peaceful retreat that’s easy to take care of and brings you joy.

Flower Beds: Simple Color Boost

Boost the look of your mobile home by planting flowers and shrubs strategically. Choose hardy types like Black-eyed Susans, beach sunflowers, blazing stars, and violets that can handle Florida’s weather. These colorful blooms not only look great but also make your home more appealing.

Shrubs: Easy Greenery

Shrubs can serve as hedges, privacy screens, or borders without much effort. Pick low-maintenance options like bay laurel, holly, fire bush, and viburnum. With just a bit of pruning, these shrubs stay charming and easy to manage.

Edible Gardening: Simple and Delicious

Try a small vegetable garden for a fun DIY project. Small lots in manufactured home communities are perfect for a low-maintenance garden. Plant veggies in containers for an easy yet rewarding edible garden.

Skirting and Hardscapes: Stylish Stability

Add stairs, walkways, and patios to anchor your mobile home. Use retaining walls to hide skirting, giving a neat look and providing storage. Think about outdoor barbecues, fire pits, decks, and patios for more character.

Yard Décor: Personal Touches

Add personal touches with decorative molding, rocks, bird feeders, wishing wells, and bird baths. Small additions like flower baskets, wind chimes, and suncatchers complete the transformation.

Front Porch: Cozy Corners

Make the most of your outdoor spaces, especially the front porch or deck. Invest in comfortable seating like rockers, swings, or a small patio set. Hang flower baskets and wind chimes for a cozy, inviting vibe.

Lighting: Soft and Serene

Place solar sticks and LED string lights for a soft, ambient glow. Avoid bright lights and go for gentle lighting near outdoor furniture and shrubs.

Water Features: Tranquil Sounds

While ponds and waterfalls are calming, they also need maintenance. Check community rules and Florida Mobile Home Act compliance before adding water features.
