What Are Some Easy Ways To Boost My Home’s Curb Appeal?

When homeowners think of luxury landscape design, they often think of large landscaping changes where the grass is uprooted and stone slate is planted instead. However, luxury landscape design doesn’t have to mean making huge changes to your yard.

In fact, spending as little as 5% of the total value of your home can not only make your home look great but also increase its resale value by a total of 15%. That being said, here are a few simple ways your local landscape services can help to make your home’s landscape the belle of the neighborhood.

Build Walls To Let Your Walls Down
Outdoor kitchens aren’t the only thing in your yard that could benefit from professional hardscaping. If you have a garden and you spend quite a lot of time in your garden, consider hiring a landscape company to build a knee wall.

A knee wall is a knee-high architectural feature that’s just small enough to give you some privacy while you tend to your flowers. What’s more, the design of the wall itself can be just the little bit of luxury hardscaping your home needed for a curb appeal boost.

Light Up The Night
Landscape lighting is another great way to give your home the fresh new look you’ve been looking for, but without a major landscape project. Landscape lighting not only highlights the parts of your home that you love the most but also gives your home the soft brilliance it lacks at night.

Talk to your landscape design company about incorporating LED landscape lighting along your walkways, trees, and shrubbery. You’ll be surprised by the romantic touches a simple glow can provide.

Create A Place To Socialize
With spring on the way, you’ll be spending more of your time outside entertaining rather than spending time indoors. Consider creating a space in your yard that’s more of a social area rather than an outright patio.

Something as simple as a bench with surrounding flowers or a knee wall can give you a social area that’s separate from the rest of your yard. With winter still hanging around, you may not think such a space is necessary, but come summer you’ll be happy you have one.

You don’t necessarily need built-in seating, outdoor kitchens, and grand patios to indulge in luxury landscape design.
