It may be the end of the year, but this also means that the new year is upon us. While it’s common for people to set goals when it comes to personal and professional goals, it’s also common for homeowners to have goals when it comes to home improvement. And yet, in addition to home improvement and repair, homeowners also often want to make changes to their landscape and property design. But where to start?
GreenPro specialists love sitting down with our clients to craft and create landscaping goals. We thought we’d share a little of our approach when it comes to creating goals for clients and their landscapes. Maybe these questions can help you as you set out your goals for the new year.
Low-maintenance landscape design.
One crucial aspect of landscape design involves homeowners asking how much maintenance they want to personally be responsible for. Clients will often tell us that they want to spend more time enjoying their landscape rather than tending it; as a result, we can work with clients to install low-maintenance plants that can scale back the amount of work you have to put in.
User-friendly landscape design.
What do you use your property for? A simple question, perhaps, but one that many homeowners don’t think through when they are crafting their landscape design. If you spend a great deal of time entertaining, for example, you may want to invest in an abundant garden; a property dedicated to serving as a quiet and peaceful sanctuary from the outside world may require a completely different stylistic approach. Having a clear objective for your landscape will define what kind of landscape you design.
Eco-friendly landscape design.
It’s impossible to create a landscape design dedicated to the natural elements of the planet without being mindful of the planet itself. It’s important to consider any ecological impact as you approach the overall landscape design aesthetic. A pesticide-free garden, for example, may require an entirely different approach to your garden, since certain types of plants will be incompatible with this mentality. But we find this to be an important goal for many of our clients as they try to be intentional and mindful about their ecological impact.
Increase curb appeal through landscape design.
It’s common knowledge among realtors and homeowners alike that curb appeal is greatly improved by garden appeal. A beautiful landscape will often be the first impression you make on guests; as a result, creating a “wow” factor should be foremost on your mind. We love working with clients to ensure that the property presents the spirit of the house and homeowner. Installing high-value show plants near architectural elements you hope to highlight is one great way to boost that curb appeal and get visitors (or potential buyers) to say “wow.”
Create harmony between indoor and outdoor spaces.
When thinking about your overall landscape and what you want to focus on in the new year, integrating the indoor and outdoor areas when it comes to design should be high on your list. Given the rise in the outdoor living trend, most homeowners are becoming increasingly aware that they can increase their livable space by creating appealing outdoor patio areas. If you already have a space for outdoor living, think about how you can create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor environments.
