If you want to improve your property’s value, some of the obvious ideas would be good maintenance, security, smart home systems, and renovations to bathrooms and kitchens.
However, one of the simplest ways to spruce up your Durham property is to concentrate on aesthetic landscape ideas. By focusing on the visual appeal of your property, you will not only enhance first impressions, but also improve the overall appearance, leading to an increase in property value.
Add Curb Appeal to Your Property
When viewing your property from the street, nothing is more appealing than a beautifully landscaped sidewalk, front yard, and walkway.
There are many ways to achieve this effect, including well-manicured lawns, potted plants, trees and shrubs, and flower beds. Your landscape experts at Salix Nurseries in Durham will be able to advise you on the best solution to transform the “face” of your property.
Add Definition With Stone
Choose from natural or manufactured stone products, available in a wide range of colours and products. Examples of stone products that you can use to add definition include:
- Interlocking bricks
- Retaining wall systems
- Patio and walkway stone
- Decorative gravel
- Stone slabs
Add a Water Feature
Water is a divine manifestation of nature, and we are all drawn to water’s soothing and relaxing properties. One of the most exciting additions to your landscape in Durham is to add a water feature or pond.
When deciding on the water feature to add to your home, look for a landscaping team that will treat it as a work of art with their superior knowledge of horticulture, stone and water to make a truly unique design that will enhance the value of your home.
Options include fish or koi ponds, garden ponds, a lotus pool, or other natural rock pool choices. Water can be static or flow over rocks for the ultimate sense of peace and tranquillity.
Accent lighting is something else to consider to increase the aesthetic appeal of your water feature.
