Landscaping for Curb Appeal
Wednesday, February 8, 2017
The landscaping of your home is often underrated. It can seem like tasteful design is unnoticed, while tacky design draws the eye. But good landscaping is like the soundtrack to a movie: when absent or inferior, everything is lacking.
If you aren’t planning to put your house on the market, you may think that curb appeal is unnecessary. In fact, a healthy, vibrant lawn will make your guests feel more welcome and usually make you love your home even more.
Where to start?
· Plant a tree. You’ll want to take into consideration the size of your lot and home, as well as how big the tree will be as it matures.
· Think seasonal. If all of your plants only look good in the spring, your home looks rundown most of the year.
· Add color. Adding colorful trees or flower beds can draw attention – in a good way – so long as you don’t try to incorporate all of the colors of the rainbow.
· Adorn your abode. Curb appeal shouldn’t stop at your lawn. Window boxes, wreaths, and well-chosen paints blend your yard and you house into a cohesive design.
Don’t be “that neighbor” whose lawn looks as though they’ve been out of town for the past six months. Brighten your view. Contact us today to get started.
