Landscaping for Curb-Appeal

They say first impressions count – and that’s certainly true when it comes to your home. A beautiful front yard sets the tone for your home both inside and out, and even a small front yard can be made unique and dramatic with a little imagination.

Here are some ideas for creating a sensation with your front yard:

  • Make a feature of your steps. Cement front steps leading to a wooden deck can look great, but a walkway made of stone or brick steps that wind around colourful beds will set your home apart from the neighbours’ – and as a bonus they’re more comfortable to walk up!
  • Less grass and more beds. A single flower bed is a staple of the typical front yard, but when you add more beds, and unique and distinctive plants it creates a warm, friendly approach.
  • Create a sitting area – a bench underneath a tree, possibly surrounded by frangrant perennials and shrubs is a relaxing place to sit and watch the world go by, and an inviting sight for your visitors.
  • Consider a small water feature. Obviously you don’t want to put deep water in your front yard, but a small water feature will be pleasing to the eye and the ear, and will attract birds and butterflies.

These are just some of the things you can do to make your front yard unique and more welcoming. For more ideas, call 403-279-9791, or email tarance@greentreelandscapes.com for a free consultation.
