Front Yard Landscaping Ideas With The Landscape Artist
Ideas For Your Front Yard Landscaping In Calgary
Your home is likely your single greatest investment. And when people arrive at your door, the view from the curb is their first impression and sets the stage for what’s to come.
Proper front yard landscaping will accentuate the architecture of your home, gently steering visitors towards your front door. The front of your home is what a potential buyer will first see, perhaps even on Google Street view for even visiting the neighbourhood. So the importance of good curb appeal cannot be understated.
Trees are important. Trees will be used to frame the front of your home, provide shade, some privacy and generally soften the front of your home. Fun statistic, a home with mature trees in the front yard will sell for 3% more than identical home without. Generally, the front yard is where you might not wish to sink the majority of your landscaping budget, but a lot can be done for a reasonable amount of money.
A common request for us is to create a lawless front yard. This could be a good route to go for water conservation and reduce maintenance, especially if space isn’t very big. Hearty plant materials, rocks and mulch following a zero escape concept can accomplish this and look great doing it.
Courtyards or small sitting areas could be incorporated into a front yard space, providing additional interest as well as a functional space to utilize. These spaces could be quite private, or partially open to the street, enhancing your interactions with your neighbours. Often, these spaces take advantage of sun or shade not available in other parts of the yard at the same time.
You may also wish to distinguish yourself from your neighbours with an engraved address rock or monument. If you have a significant slope, retaining walls may be required. Get in contact with us. We’ll discuss what you’ve got and we’ll show you some possibilities for your front yard.
