Are you looking to dramatically improve your home’s curb appeal? While there are plenty of great ways you can remodel your home, nothing will have as big of an impact as landscaping your yard. A beautiful lawn and garden area can make your home stand out and sell quicker (if you are trying to sell it). So what projects and upgrades will have the biggest impact? Here are the three most significant transformations you can make. If you have any questions about the features listed below, contact one of the great landscaping companies in Reno, like Action Lawn & Landscape.
1. Water features add more class and visual interest to a home than nearly any other upgrade. Whether it’s a large pond complete with fish or a network of meandering streams and bridges, water features make any home look like an oasis or resort. Best of all, you can get as creative as you want with the upgrades. If you want to create a waterfall or stream that looks like it was taken directly from the hills around Reno, NV, then you can do that. On the other hand, you can create a stream that looks like an English river, complete with unusual plants and landscaping.
2. Retaining walls can help segment your yard into distinct areas and improve safety. By installing retaining walls throughout your yard you can easily create dedicated gardening areas, grassy knolls to recreate on, and even dining or lounging areas.
3. Paths and planting areas go together like summer and lawnmowers. A blanket of green grass is by no means a bad front yard, but it is boring. If you really want to improve the look and functionality of your yard, consider placing paths and dedicated garden areas. A cobblestone path wandering through sections of roses, wild herbs, sunflowers, and other plants can create a relaxing and invigorating environment that will please you and anyone driving by. Better yet, a segmented yard will require less watering even in the hot environments in and around Reno.
