It’s that time of year again…
Have you thought of your New Year’s Resolutions?
Whether the answer is yes or no, it’s not too late to consider some “new yard” resolutions.
The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to examine any short and long term goals you may have when it comes to your overall yard. Sometimes we get so accustomed to how our yard currently looks, we have trouble imagining it any other way. Whether you want to increase your curb appeal, improve your drainage, or create a new outdoor entertaining area, it’s important to take each goal one step at a time.
Step 1: Picture Your New Landscape
What do you want your new and improved yard to look like? You can find inspiration for new designs by looking through the internet, Pinterest boards, or our portfolio. In addition, our Facebook page and Google My Business page are consistently being updated with pictures of our recent work. If you begin to see a pattern of what you’re looking for, be sure to keep a mental note for when you start planning your own yard.
Step 2: Set Concrete Goals
When investing in your yard, you want to get the most return on that investment, both while you live in the home and once you sell it. How are you going to improve both your environment and your lifestyle in a meaningful way?
If one of your goals is to get erosion under control, you might consider adding a retaining wall to your yard. If you’re looking to spend more time outside, the addition of a deck, porch, or patio may do the trick.
Step 3: Talk to an Expert & Get Started
After you have an idea of what you’re looking for, find an expert who you can trust and start discussing your short and long term goals with them. They will tell you what will and won’t work when it comes to your specific goals.
