Maximizing the attractiveness of your curb appeal has amazing benefits. The National Association of Realtors state that a homeowner can increase the value of their home by at least 7% by adding curb appeal. Beyond that, though, is the joy it will give you, the homeowner, to see the added beauty provided by some simple curb appeal fixes.
Let’s look at a few things you can do to increase your curb appeal, including:
- A unique pathway: the joys of hardscape
- Add color with planters and gardens
- Work on symmetry
- To fence or not to fence?
- Personal style
- Outdoor lighting
- Work with the contours of the land
A brief explanation of each will follow.
A path to happiness
A stone path, a gravel path, a path with colorful flower beds bordering it, or flowing plum trees, all leading the eye to the home. This and hardscaping are primary landscape design techniques in achieving curb appeal.
By and large, you can’t go wrong with color, but just make sure it is color coordination you seek and not opposing colors. Subtle color choices can make or break curb appeal.
Proper landscaping is all about symmetry. You want all of the parts to benefit the whole when landscaping. A good landscaping pro can help you to see the potential your yard has.
Not only should you have a fence, but if you do, what kind of fence benefits your yard the most? In other words, will a fence enhance the appearance of your yard and home? Not all homes benefit from fencing, but some homes truly need a fence.
It’s hard to go wrong with shrubbery, but choosing the right shrubbery for your yard and home is the key. These are not random decisions. A good landscaping company will have the pros you need who can guide you through the myriad of choosing the right plants.
It’s your home, so make it look like it! You spent the money to purchase this home. It should reflect your personality and beliefs. Are you into minimalism? Are you into spectacular statements? Your home and its landscaping should be an extension of who you are.
Outdoor lighting enhances your yard
We can’t say enough about outdoor landscape lighting and how it enhances a yard at nighttime. Amazingly, most people do not think about what their yard looks like at night. Outdoor lighting will open up a new world for the homeowner.
All yards have contours. A landscaping pro sees those contours and designs the landscaping to follow the flow of the property. It takes a trained eye to see this and maximize the benefits.
Curb appeal landscaping is not something which can be undertaken lightly by untrained personnel.
