Ask any real estate agent what makes a house sell the fastest and for the greatest premium and you’ll likely get one answer – curb appeal.
A home’s exterior is the first thing a homebuyer sees when they visit a house. Keep in mind, the exterior extends beyond the structure itself. The yard, driveway, walkways and back yard are all aspects of a home’s overall curb appeal.
Here’s a quick list of the top landscape design projects that will help boost your home’s curb appeal and fetch a higher price when it comes time to sell.
A gravel or asphalt driveway may be functional, but it’s not as visually appeal as a paver driveway. An expertly designed paver driveway is going to last – even through tough Connecticut winters – and be easy to maintain. For example, repairing a paver driveway in the event of any crumbling or cracking simply requires replacing the pavers in question. Once that replacement is made, the driveway looks as good as new. Compare that to asphalt driveways, which require unsightly patches to fix cracks. If you want even more elegance, you can talk to our landscape designers about upgrading to a natural stone driveway.
If you want to improve the look of your house for potential buyers, a front walkway project is a great idea. We can help you with all the aspects required for a front walkway, including retaining walls, stairs, landings and foundation plantings.
If you are interested in a pool, you’ll want to consider the landscaping around the pool. We specialize in the design and installation of pool patios and complementary outdoor living areas. Our clients often include outdoor kitchens, custom fire pits and sitting walls to help make their pool as an inviting area as possible.
This is just the beginning of the possibilities as you consider your next landscape design project. Contact us today and we’ll connect you with one of our expert landscape designers.
