Landscaping projects for your home offer many opportunities to not only improve your home aesthetically, but functionally as well. I have been in the landscaping business now for 20 years and have had the opportunity to meet with many homeowners that are trying to decide on a scope of work specifically for their home projects, during these meetings with homeowners I have found many people that have had unique ideas that have challenged my perspectives on the opportunities that exist if you have the imagination.
It is well known in the landscaping industry that by creating an outdoor space you create curb appeal to your home. Often during these first time meetings the clients tell me they are trying to create this curb appeal for their home but have often questioned how much money they should put in to a landscaping project to attain the curb appeal that they’re looking for. I often respond back by asking them what is their purpose for the landscaping project that their currently considering. Curb appeal is important aesthetically to new home buyers.
I work for a number of real estate agents that coach homeowners that are trying to sell their homes on low cost ways to create outdoor appeal that makes it easy for potential homeowners to want to come into the home and do a tour. Real estate agents as well as new and previous homeowners buyers often have excellent ideas when it comes to landscaping. One of the ways that I encourage new clients to think through this process is by considering landscaping ideas that are not only aesthetically pleasing and beautiful but also functional. As you know anytime you add a feature to something you also potentially could be adding complications.
Knowing the types of plants that grow well in your area of the country is a very important thing to know prior to considering the type of external landscaping that you might be doing with plants. Finding the right plants shrubs and aesthetically pleasing flowers is not only important for the beauty but important for the long-term care and maintenance of your property. There have been many horror stories of people choosing plants that don’t get enough sunlight and placing them in places that will inevitably lead to the plant not being able to thrive. Finding plants that require less water if you live in a place where water is a premium is also one thing to keep into consideration.
Ultimately incorporating ideas from my potential clients and customers throughout the years as well as adding tried and true techniques has offered a lot of advantage to those people that we work with.
