Improving the curb appeal of your home with a new walkway and steps.

Add Curb Appeal to Your Home with a New Front Walkway and Steps

The entrance to your home is your first impression to guests and your lasting impression on neighbors. Your home may be beautiful, but does it have true charisma? The move from stale to stunning may be as simple as framing your front door with a new walkway and steps that show off your stage and reflect your style.

The First Step: Location

Determine where a walkway is needed. You may have an existing sidewalk, but is it's placement awkward? Consider where guests park and see which path makes the most sense. Think about how neighbors, or delivery people, approach your door and what would be most convenient for them. You may find that two separate walkways that converge for example before reaching the steps and entrance, for example, could be the perfect hardscape solution.

The Second Step: Style

A large, traditional home may call for something formal, perhaps with a wide brick walkway and steps, leading straight through a symmetrically-landscaped garden. A craftsman cottage, on the other hand, could need a casual, laid-back look... maybe a winding flagstone path and wooden steps wandering through a landscape of perennials would reflect the style you're seeking. Another way to add a stylistic accent could be to look for ways to mimic the design elements of your home in your new walkway and steps. Ask your landscaping professional about all the different options available to you.

How 3D technology is changing landscape and hardscape projects.

How 3D technology is changing landscape and hardscape projects.

When you’re approaching a new landscaping or outdoor living space project, the most exciting step—and the most challenging—is the conception and design of the space. Landscape design was originally a slow and labor-intensive process using pencil, ink, and extensive descriptions to translate your ideas onto the page. But now, using 3D modeling, a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) expert can create an accurate, interactive model of your space in a fraction of the time. Here are a few of the benefits of working with a CAD designer for your new landscaping or hardscaping project:

From your vision to a rendered image.

You know exactly what your dream yard looks like—you’ve imagined sitting on your new patio and how your landscaping would look. But those ideas can be difficult to communicate to a landscaper. Using 3D modeling, we can take your vision for an outdoor space and put it on the screen. By seeing your ideas mocked up, it limits any potential miscommunication and gives you a sense of what it will really look like when completed.

Easily adjustable with day and night views.

Sometimes, what you imagined in your head doesn’t work as well once it is rendered to a graphic. Maybe one element drowns out another, or you have more room for a patio then you expected. Once the designer has created the initial mockup, we can work together to manipulate the design. This also allows us to see how your landscaping will age and grow, and to...
