Landscaping Tips That Will Make Your Home Stand out From the Rest of the Neighborhood

Are you looking to transform your home so that it stands out from the rest of your boring and dreary neighborhood? If so, then buckle up because we’re about to reveal some game-changing landscaping tips that will make your home the envy of the street.

Transforming your home with a grand front entrance

Your home should be like a personal paradise to you. It should be the humble abode that you want to return to every evening after work, and it should greet you with warm and loving arms.

And to do so, you need to make a grand front entrance.

There are loads of ways to create an inviting front entrance, and it’s really going to depend on how much space you have between the sidewalk and your front entrance. Start with something simple, such as lining the path with perennials or some soft ambient lighting. Using flower beds to draw a path to your front door works as well, and don’t forget to use some larger plants and hedges to serve as gate posts.

Remember that the front door itself is also a part of this entire scene. This isn’t so much a landscaping tip, but make sure you repaint the door, fix up the number plate, and tidy up the decking so that it complements the rest of your landscaping.

Say yes to exotic plants and trees

One of the best ways to stand out from the rest of your drab neighborhood is to start introducing more exotic colors and silhouettes. Take palm trees for example. These beautiful trees are easy to introduce with help from a palm tree nursery, and they stick out like (very beautiful) sore thumbs.

Adding something exotic to your landscaping, be it trees or plants, can really stand out from everything else on the street. Just make sure you walk the line between it being captivating and gaudy. Too many palm trees and exotic flowers will just look like a mess, especially if you don’t take good care of them.

So the next time you want to introduce something unique to transform the exterior of your home, say yes to something more exotic.

Color coordination is the key to making everything look right

If you’ve tried your hand at landscaping in the past but it didn’t quite work out, then there’s a good chance that you didn’t think about one crucial design element: color coordination.

There’s a lot of information about color psychology and how it can affect the way we view something, but there’s also a lot to learn when it comes to creating complementary color schemes that work well together.

To enhance the curb appeal of your home, you have to use the right colors. Think about the flowers you use, the colors they come in, and how they complement other colors in and around your home. If you have too many clashing colors, then everything looks loud and noisy. With the right color and shade choices, everything will look “just right” and be pleasing to your eyes.
