The gorgeous weather that we experience in Colorado this time of year provides the perfect opportunity to improve your home’s curb appeal. Our team of design professionals at Lifescape Colorado will help you to create a setting in your front yard that passersby won’t be able to help but stop and admire.
Here are our landscaping suggestions to enhance your home’s curb appeal:
Plant a pristine foundation planting and prune.
After a bountiful season of growth in the summer, many of the plantings in your landscape have become overgrown, especially shrubs against the house. Proper pruning can make a significant difference in your property’s exterior appearance. Having a landscape professional remove limbs from shade trees will make your house visible and train your trees, plants, and shrubs at a young age to grow accordingly.
Add colorful planting highlights near the walkway.
Opt for species of perennials that will provide pops of color at your feet, such as penstemons, daylilies or salvia. Don’t forget to plant flower pots by the front entry.
Don’t neglect your lawn.
Our maintenance team will help keep your lawn weed-free and will mow with a clean edge, which will give your landscape a tidy appearance.
Replace cracked concrete with pavers.
Allow us to improve the appearance of your walkway and patio by replacing old concrete with long-lasting pavers. Porous, permeable pavers are aesthetically-pleasing and add function to your landscape as they’re durable and replenish the water table.
Incorporate landscape lighting.
Landscape lighting will illuminate walkways throughout your landscape to improve safety. You can also use landscape lighting to accent plants and points of interest in your yard.
