Landscaping Your New Home

Landscaping is one of the best investments you can make in your new home.

The planning and design of your outdoor space should be considered an integral part of your new custom built home. Landscaping can also help warm and cool your new home, not to mention enhance your street appeal and increase the value of your home.

Your landscaping decisions will largely depend on how you intend to use your yard space and how you want to present your home to the street.

Consider whether you are looking to create a tranquil extension of your home or will your yard be a busy activity space used by your family. Do you have equipment like a trampoline or a kid’s playground?  Will you be adding a pool or sport court to your backyard? These elements will impact your landscape design choices.

Do some site evaluation and study the soil and the scenic nature of your lot and neighborhood characteristics. Determine what plants and grasses are best for your region to help you define what landscaping solution is right for you. 

A proper landscape design ensures the right plants are in the right place that allows for proper drainage, erosion and sustainable plant life.
