Landscaping Your Georgia Lawn with Curb Appeal in Mind

Are you planning on selling your home this year? Then now is the time to think about landscaping your yard in a way that boosts its curb appeal. However, there is more to improving your home’s curb appeal than simply adding some plants, flowers and doing some edging. You want to be sure that the upgrades show off your lawn’s best features and minimizes any flaws.

But figuring out where to begin in increasing your lawn’s curb appeal can be overwhelming. After all, the goal is to make your property more inviting – especially to the potential buyer!

Boosting Your Lawn’s Curb Appeal 

Not every lawn improvement has to be a long difficult process. Our Outdoor Makeover & Construction team can help you decide what elements will best be suited for your needs and yard. Here are some ideas to consider for designing a landscape with true curb appeal.

  • Add outdoor lighting. Having a well-lit lawn makes your property more inviting to desired guests, but not so much for the unwanted ones. If you already have outdoor lighting but it was installed a number of years ago, consider updating. If you need additional lighting, consider adding porch lights, solar lights along pathways, or string lights along porch railings or other outdoor structures.
  • Think about symmetry. Symmetrical patterns create focal points and make your home look more put together. Whether it is symmetry in where shrubbery is planted, where lighting fixtures are installed or another element, symmetry is important.
  • Have a clear path. Be sure that any walkways are not only well-lit at night, but that they are easily identifiable due to the use of pavers, brickwork or stones.
  • Do the basics! Keep your lawn mowed, rake off any leaves, weed when necessary, and be sure it to water it to prevent brown spots.
  • Containers and planters help. You don’t have to spend hours working in a garden. Look for fun containers or planters that compliment your home and style then choose plants that are easy to care for as well as those that make the place look cheerful and inviting.
  • Update outdoor structures. Be sure any porch or deck boards are in good shape – replace any that are not. Consider adding in new seating areas or a patio to make the outside space more inviting.

If you are looking for other ways to enhance your existing landscape, consider adding features such as a gazebo, an outdoor fire pit, outdoor kitchen or perhaps a pond.

No yard is perfect right from the start. But by implementing the right landscaping features we can sure that your landscape has the best curb appeal on the block. So, don’t keep wondering if your yard is reaching its full potential. Talk to the team at Outdoor Makeover & Construction today.

 
 
   
  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

    Ryan E. Marietta, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

    Amy & Joe Roswell, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”
