Front Yard Curb Appeal 

While the entry to your house is the most obvious reason for improvements, improving different aspects of your front yard one step and a time can make the overwhelming task a little easier. While tackling it all at once is more budget friendly, splitting it up into different pieces doesn’t necessary have to cost a lot more. Be sure to plan properly before proceeding with a project of your size.

 

Front Door

Perhaps one of the most overlooked aspects of “landscaping“. Regardless of what category you put your front door into – interior renovation or landscaping, it will be one of the first things anybody will see. Depending on the status of your door, you might have to do nothing. You might have to apply a coat of paint or…change the entire door. If your door is in that bad of a stage, be sure to choose the right door. Doors these days come with energy efficient options similar to windows allowing more hot or cool air to stay inside. Lastly and most importantly, choose a door that will be sure to compliment your landscape. IF you have a simple wooden door with a fancy front yard full of fixtures…something just doesn’t add up. Choose Wisely.
