Professional landscaping can boost your home’s or business’ curb appeal. Performing the right landscape modifications can make a huge difference and can generate new interest in a property. Utilizing the right landscape choices using points of interest, functionality, color and texture can make a big new impression.

Planning is Key

Planning is the first thing in any landscape project. A professional landscaper will evaluate your area, discuss your needs and should provide meaningful realistic options. Not all landscaping projects are expensive, many times a professional landscaper can quickly identify what your area needs and offer cost-effective solutions. The key to any landscape project is planning. Make sure you clearly explain your ideas with your landscaper so they can provide you with the right ideas and solutions.

Points of Interest

Creating a point of interest or several different points of interest can help build curb appeal. Examples may include a well-designed flagstone or paver walkway or addition of a large rock or boulder in the landscape. Using shaped flower beds with colorful flowers and properly shaped shrubs can also draw attention to a property’s landscape.

Many times, commercial landscapes can add ornamental trees or unique seating areas to produce a better curb appeal. The use of bushes and shrubs can hide unsightly utility boxes and draw attention away from unsightly items.

Color and Texture

Used properly, flowering plants and trees will bring color and beauty to a landscape and enhance the overall curb appeal. With the many different types of evergreens that thrive in Maryland, landscapers can bring rich green colors and texture to landscape projects enhancing curb appeal year-round. The use of colored mulch, landscape stones, retaining walls and paver stone areas can quickly change the appearance of a landscaped area. Sharply edged flower beds with unique shapes draw attention.

Getting it Done and Maintaining

Ensure you are on the same page with your landscaper once a design is confirmed and work begins. Remember projects can change and if you decide to add more ideas or are not clear about any aspect of your landscape project, simply discuss it with your landscaper. Once the new alterations have been made, continued maintenance with your landscaper is vital to ensure the newly enhanced landscape area continues to look nice and inviting year-round. A professional landscaper will be able to provide you with the right maintenance intervals and share what will be needed to keep your curb appeal maintained.
