Curb Appeal Delivered!

Our latest project is a total front yard renovation. This home that was built in the 60’s and had a very tired landscape with zero curb appeal.

Curb Appeal Delivered - Before 

We began by designing the front yard showing the potential that it had. We met with Mr. and Mrs. Hampton and thoroughly explained the design and vision for their yard. After approving, we got started immediately with the demolition of the existing landscape.

Once the demolition was completed we worked on the grading and brought in screened topsoil to enhance the soil quality and help with the grade and drainage. We installed a dry creek bed in the front to be both functional and beautiful. During heavy rains the dry creek bed will allow the water to flow off the property and away from the house.

After being extremely pleased with the progress the Hamptons requested some add-ons. We added a stone wall and we refurbished their walkway to the front door. The customer requested a way to create a natural property boundary. We designed and installed the custom low boulder wall. The rocks add texture and color while preventing soil erosion.

The walkway was plain concrete and we faced it with stack stone on the risers and flagstone on the steps.

We then added the plant material and trees and well as fresh pinestraw to complete the look.

We chose zeon zoysia for the sod because of the amount of shade on the property. To complete the renovation we are also removing the driveway and replacing with concrete.

We completed the project ahead of time and the Hamptons are extremely pleased. The results truly speak for themselves! Be sure to check out the complete Hampton project album on our Houzz site

Personal Touch Tips:

Get fall pre-emergent down before temperatures get too cool. You want a barrier of protection from fall/winter weeds before they start to germinate. If you plan on aerating and seeding, then do not apply a pre-emergent first as this will inhibit the growth of grass seed.
