Let’s face it — first impressions are everything. If you are just moving in to your southeastern NC home or thinking about putting it on the market — EDGE Landscape understands that your home’s exterior – front entry, yard, driveway and sidewalk – serve as a “what’s to come” for the interior of your home. Here a few simple ways you can enhance your home’s curb appeal — and the team at EDGE Landscape can help!

Enhancing Your Home’s Curb Appeal

This is an inexpensive way to give your driveway, sidewalks, decks and entryways some zip and increase your home’s curb appeal. If you don’t own a pressure washer, no problem – EDGE Landscape can help! If you’re the DIY-type, just rent one from your local home improvement store for the day.

Try planting some colorful annuals to spruce up your porch. Colorful pots and containers, window boxes and flower beds that pop with color will really brighten your home’s exterior. Take it one step further and work with the team at EDGE to help design a landscape plan that will assure your landscaping provides color all year long.  Here is a detailed list of native plants, shrubs and trees found in NC.

Light Up Your Landscaping
Show off your yard day AND night! There are many low-wattage lights available and you can mix and match to full illuminate your outdoor space. Try these: path lights for walkways, spotlights and floodlights for trees and shrubbery, deck lights for safety on deck steps, well lights for flowerbeds and tree bases and post cap lights for additional safety.  Check out some great outdoor lighting ideas here.

Let’s Walk
Consider taking your front walkway to the next level! Well-designed walkways make your home feel warm and inviting. Consider replacing a straight concrete path with a more contoured route made of stone or brick. Brick pavers offer traditional, classic beauty to the landscape of any home and concrete pavers are moderately priced and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.

Porch-Sitting
Hang out in the front yard for a change! If your front porch lacks WOW-factor, let EDGE help you enhance your porch’s living space with a newly designed deck. Whether large or small, we can incorporate the deck space with an inviting hardscape area and tie it all together with a beautiful landscape plan. Check out a few of these before and after photos for inspiration here.
