Now that the warmer weather has arrived, that project you put off last fall seems important again. We have been busy fielding calls lately from clients with lots of questions about how to move forward with their landscaping ideas.
Of course it depends on how big the project is as well as your budget but it always is a good idea to begin with a plan. Lindsay Landscape recommends a design for larger projects and we have talked about that in our blog before. You can refer to that information here:
Hiring a Landscape Designer
Sometimes an overhaul up of a garden bed is all that is required to make your space feel more inviting. There is nothing worse that sitting down with your morning coffee and feeling like you really should be weeding instead.
A few things to think about when deciding on a plan for your garden:
- How do you plan on using the space?
- How much work do you want to do to maintain it once it is redone?
- Is it a sunny or shady space? If it is sunny do you want some shade?
- Do you have a pet that shares the space? What requirements do they have?
- Have a budget in mind.
- Keep an open mind and be flexible.
Options are endless today. A well planned space will ensure you get the most enjoyment out of your yard, as well as increasing your property value.
Today is the day! Although we have been preparing for the construction season for a while now, today the construction crew is starting our first project of the year.
When we start fresh each year, we have a vision of what we hope to accomplish for our clients. Maybe a beautiful new entranceway, or backyard, but we also hope we help to improve their lives. For some clients it is about taking an overgrown yard and making it more manageable for them to maintain. For others it is about safety and accessibility. Sometimes though, it is all about beauty! Everyone wants to look out and see a beautiful yard, or a beautiful entranceway when they drive up to their home.
The good news is that money spent on landscaping your home is a good investment. Proper landscaping can help you see a good return on your financial stake. Adding value as soon as the work is completed and which over time will appreciate. A well landscaped home will also sell faster, something to keep in mind if you are planning on putting your home on the market.
Start with a good design, keeping in mind that outdoor living is a huge trend in today’s market. Think about adding a fire pit, a dining area and remember to incorporate some shade in to the mix. Don’t forget to add lighting to accent key features of your yard, like a lovely weeping mulberry, a vine covered obelisk or trickling stream. Adding trees, native plants and a nice green patch of lawn all make for an inviting yard.
We are excited to get started and will share photos and videos as we progress.
