Make a good first impression with Landscaping
There are many factors to consider when landscaping to improve the curb appeal of your home. Even if you are not planning to sell your home this season, it can't hurt to have your front yard landscaped. You want your front yard to look attractive and inviting from the street. Making an impactful first impression says so much about the homeowner and the general condition of the inside of the home. When a prospective buyer sees an unkempt lawn, neglected flower beds and overgrown shrubs, assumptions are made about the general condition of the inside as well.
When planning to improve the appearance of your front yard, the first consideration is the size and shape of the house and how it relates to the street. The focal point of a front yard landscaping project is your house. The appearance of your home from street level ought to draw the eye in a pleasing way to the front door of the house. The path from the street to the front door should be clear and inviting.
Landscapers create interest with color and groupings of plants. The scale of the plants, trees and shrubs and structures must complement the space. Landscapers are masters of accentuating the attractive and minimizing areas that are not. Choice of color is best left in the hands of the designer. This brings us to the appearance of your facade and the entry to the home. If your home's facade looks shabby or tired, a fresh coat of paint will be a big improvement.
