Start in the Front Yard
Start in the front of your home or business. If your goal is to add value to your home by investing in a landscaping project, curb appeal plays a key role. Improving the front yard landscaping of your home can vastly improve the look and feel of your property. Your home can become a show place in your neighborhood. Imagine the pride and satisfaction you will feel when you see your beautiful landscaping each time you arrive home. Not only will you enjoy the new look and feel, the update can add thousands of dollars in value to your home.
Think About Hardscapes First
No matter what area you are thinking of landscaping it’s important to start with the hard surfaces. Not only are they an important design feature but they are a permanent part of the design. We don’t want to change driveways, walk ways, porches, patios, fencing, arbors and parking areas once they have been installed. These items are key to creating a beautiful design and can be costly to change in the later stages of the installation.
Plants and Beds are Next
When we think of landscape design ideas, the primary focus for most of us is the plants. There are many considerations at this stage. Climate, sunlight, soil, maintenance and irrigation are all key factors. Second is the design appeal and final look of the finished project. We all have landscape design ideas and preferences. However, you may need to modify your preferences to accommodate plants that will thrive in your specific location and conditions.
Plan Next to Your House Landscaping Ideas
Planning is very important when it comes to the plants and features you will place next to your home. Once again, a primary consideration is selecting plants that will give you the look and feel you want and are well suited to the location. Also, consider the future growth of these plants. Avoid obstructing your views and be certain not to hide any plants or architectural features of your home.
Backyard Landscaping Ideas
The backyard is the place where you can create not only a beautiful setting but you can also create a living area that extends your home into your outdoor space. Key considerations are privacy, usable space like a deck, pool, hot tub or patio. Landscape design ideas for this space are only limited by your imagination.
