Adding softscape and hardscape features by the "curb" is an easy way to add value and appeal to your property.
Even if you know absolutely nothing about real estate, you most likely have heard about the value of "curb appeal." Having an appealing "curb" or road-side landscape will not only add value to your home if you're trying to sell it, but it also improves the aesthetics and feel of the home - even if you aren't trying to sell!
Building a small hardscape feature, be it a wall or walkway, will help identify your property boundary, while also guiding visitors down the desired path and keeping them off your lawn. Compliment a hardscape wall or walkway with a nice arrangement of plants and you've got yourself "curb appeal."
Investing in "curb appeal" is usually a wise decision, even if you aren't putting your house on the market, mainly because it does not require a large investment. A skilled Landscape Architect can design and construct a beautifully landscaped curb for relatively minimal investment from the home owner.
Adding a professional landscape feature is a great idea if you're selling your house, because it adds a great value, but even if you aren't selling it still adds a tremendous amount to your property. We recommend consulting with a Registered Landscape Architect to discuss how you can add "curb appeal" to your property. Take advantage of our free consultations and meet with a Landscape Architect.
