The exterior of your home can speak volumes. In fact, if your home is on the market, a poor exterior can even cost you a sale. This is because first impressions are everything when it comes to a house. Approximately 90% of real estate agents suggest that homeowners invest in landscaping prior to putting their home on the market. Why? The exterior of your home is a snapshot of what your home looks like on the inside as well as the family who lives there. That being said, here is one way our landscape services can help spice up your home's curb appeal this spring.
Outdoor walkways can be a beautiful asset to your home's landscape design. Walkways are functional and provide an elegant path that keeps elderly guests balanced and curious kids off the grass.
Walkways are also versatile and can be customized by your landscaping service to give you the look you're yearning for. Three of the most popular options for walkways include the following
Concrete is a popular option because it comes available in 30 premixed colors for landscaping services to choose from. It's a durable material that's easy to maintain because it's easy to clean and protect.
Natural stone is available in limestone, marble, and granite to name a few options. Although stone is more high-maintenance compared to concrete, it complements a romantic aesthetic when used in an outdoor walkway.
Brick is another favorite when it comes to walkways because it's easy to maintain while also exhibiting a timeless and traditional look. This option works best for those who'd prefer a neutral color to their walkway.
Outdoor walkways are beautiful, but they could be even more beautiful surrounded by a variety of native flowers. Spring is a time of growth and rebirth, which is why flowers are often a favorite of spring landscaping designs.
However, there's nothing wrong with a little natural color. What's more, when you plant a variety of different flowers you bring in an extra bit of character to your yard.
Landscape services are a great way to give a professional touch to any area of your home that needs a little extra love and care to go a long way. To learn more about what you can do to improve the curb appeal of your home, contact your local landscape architect at Alderwood Landscaping today.
