The front yard is a hugely important component of your home’s curb appeal. If your front yard looks poor, it’s going to hurt your curb appeal. The following are a few ideas for enhancing curb appeal by updating your front yard:
- Improve the circulation – The point of the front yard is to provide an entrance to your home. This means that you should have proper circulation for vehicles to move and park as well as a walkway leading to the front door.
- Strategically place trees – Trees not only help beautify your yard, they can also help shade your home in the summer, thereby reducing cooling costs, in addition to blocking cold winds during the winter.
- Enhance or block your views – You may want to partially block views and improve privacy with a wall or fence, both of which can add to the aesthetic view of your home as well. Just be wary of any regulations that might be in place concerning the height of fences and walls around your property.
These are some ways that you can enhance the look of your front yard. Contact us at Triad Associates for more tips on improving your curb appeal.
