Expert Landscaping Design Ideas
Are you looking for expert landscaping design ideas to transform your home’s curb appeal or turn your outdoor space into something functional, relaxing and attractive to look at? Or are you looking to increase the property value of your home? Below, we take a look at a few easy expert landscaping design ideas that are guaranteed to add style, polish, productivity and at least an extra 15% on to your asking price.
- Choose a Garden Style – ask any expert landscaping company and they will tell you to start with choosing a garden style that works for you, your soil, your space and your climate. Garden styles add personality and elegance to any home, and these can range from Balinese, Contemporary, Eco and Bird Friendly, Four Seasons, Indigenous, Japanese, Mediterranean and Tropical to Zen, just to name a few.
- Consider a Vegetable and Herb Garden – vegetable and herb gardens are excellent ways of making your outdoor space more productive and aesthetically appealing. With spring approaching, this is the best time to start setting up your vegetable garden. In fact, this is a time when you can plant just about anything, from basil, lettuce and cauliflower, to beets and spinach. Additionally, a vegetable garden can also save you loads of money, and in today’s economy it is really worthwhile considering.
- Make an Entrance with Stone Walkways – when landscaping any garden, walkways often get overlooked. The truth is that pathways and walkways play an important role in your home’s overall appeal. Whether you would like it curved or straight, stone walkways using solid rocks offer greater stability, polish and also look expensive.
- Relax with a Tranquil Water Feature – there is nothing quite as tranquil as the sound of flowing water, and when you need a space where you can relax and unwind from the pressures of daily life, you need to consider installing a water feature. Some of the latest outdoor water features range from fountains, bird baths, ponds and waterfalls. They not only attract birds and frogs, but they will also dramatically increase the value of your property.
