Landscape Design Ideas
We are asked daily for new and different landscape design ideas. Thankfully, when you do what you love, ideas come naturally. We are always happy to share.
It can be a challenge to tastefully differentiate your house when it is similar in style to others on the street. Differentiate your landscape! An outstanding landscape design will create a front landscape that will allow your home to be the envy of the neighborhood or even subtly stand out.
Our designers begin by taking a good look at your neighbors’ landscapes to note what similarities exist between them. If most have curved plant beds, it could be a simple matter of straightening the bed lines to create a sleeker, more modern look. In some cases, this can also cause the landscape to feel a bit more formal. Plant selection is critical to reflect your style and complement the architectural details of your home.
Having your front landscape illuminated with our subtle landscape lighting will go a long way in making your home feel more welcoming at night.
Your landscape should complement your home
Introducing a focal point to the front, such as an urn, statue, or small seating area, can effectively set your landscape apart from the rest.
This technique is not just for larger properties.
It can be beautifully achieved within a city-sized yard. Our project photo below shows a detail of a sitting area incorporated with our clients’ new front walk. The clever arrangement makes a statement and makes the entrance grand on an average city lot. Existing hardscaping can also contribute to the cookie-cutter feel. If all the homes on the street feature a centered front walk, moving yours to run alongside the drive eliminates having a divided lawn, allowing it to feel larger.
Adding accent pavers to an existing walk is another option to dress it up.
Having your front landscape illuminated with our subtle landscape lighting will go a long way in making your home feel more welcoming at night. And shine even in the dark. Ultimately, the goal for your landscape is for it to complement your home.
But why not also allow it to help you stand out?
