DO YOU HAVE CURB APPEAL LANDSCAPING?

Curb-Appeal-Landscaping

Much of the time, people see your house and judge its curb appeal, immediately either on a walk or drive by. Therefore, large shapes and masses that are attractive from a distance should be a part of a landscape with curb appeal. Garrison's Landscaping Your Curb Appeal Pros are ready to help You.

STUDY THE HOUSE.

The use of secondary hardscape elements to help design a landscape for curb appeal. A deep sidewalk, for example, offers an opportunity for a wider flowerbed as accent. A bench provides a place for a gathering of shrubs and perennials. Think about what's there (or what could be added) and how to spotlight it.

STRESS THE RITE OF PASSAGE.

Landscaping for curb appeal is ultimately about moving to the front door in a pleasing way. "You have to always be mindful of the experience of passage from the street to your door," Think about what kinds of transitions are available and whether there is a way to break up the trip without destroying the necessity of people seeing very clearly where to go. It may include a bend in a walkway with the doorway still in sightor urns on either side of a curve, Land suggests.

MAKE A COLORFUL FRONT WALK.

The color of your house should be a consideration in choosing plants to landscape for curb appeal. For example, a blue house feels calm and collected accented by a collection of purple, pink, yellow, and white flowers. Red trim will pop with flowers in orange, bright yellow, and red. The house really will dominate everything, and if the garden doesn't go with it, it might be because of color.

Include big things where appropriate. Most of the time, people see your house -- and judge its curb appeal -- quickly, either on a walk or drive by. So large shapes and masses that are attractive from a distance should be a part of a landscape with curb appeal. That doesn't mean blocking windows or doors or the facade of the house with plants that will get too large.

KEEP IT LOW-MAINTENANCE

Even if you love gardening and all its associated tasks, if you one day plan to sell your house, an elaborate garden can be considered a negative by a potential buyer. "Things that require a lot of maintenance may appeal to you, but for curb appeal, people don't want to imagine themselves spending hours deadheading.

COLLECT LOW-MAINTENANCE IDEAS

A landscape that goes dormant in the winter will look foreboding and uninviting. A landscape with curb appeal includes structural elements such as trees and shrubs, as well as materials that look good in spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
