Updating Your Home’s Landscape


Updating Your Home’s Landscape

As trends change and your landscape becomes overgrown, older homes look outdated and out of place. Consider giving them a fresh look by sprucing things up with a landscape makeover. This will easily improve the overall appearance of your home and make your outdoor living space a more inviting place.

Recreating your landscape may seem overwhelming, but it’s a rewarding task that will greatly impact the usability and value of your home. Start the process by deciding what look you want in your yard. If you need help visualizing, ask one of our professional landscape architect or designers for ideas and a landscape plan.

Think ahead before starting your outdoor remodel. If you also plan to renovate the outside of your home, you should do that before you install your new yard.

Make sure your projects don’t impact each other. This can cost you time and money.

There are new things to consider with your landscape design. Fire safety is a real concern and you want to plant drought resistant plant material and ad mulch for the areas closest to your home.

Ask an experienced plant specialist to suggest the right plants for your particular yard and tell you how to care for them before making your plant selections. Although no yard is maintenance free, good choices and planning can free up time working in our yards and reward us with time to enjoy them.

Our landscape architect can design the yard of your dreams. A landscape architect is a licensed professional who can help create concepts, sketches, detailed plans, and construction documents that are used for significant or complicated installation plans. The landscape architect may manage the project for you, or you can select a licensed landscape general contractor to install your project.

Landscape contractors utilize design professionals or their own talents to create a plan for your yard. The contractor will then use your chosen concept and install the landscape materials. A landscape contractor cannot sell you a landscape plan but will work with you to create a design/build project.
