3 Ways to Add to Your Landscape
Good landscaping is often the first thing people notice when they are passing by a home. And, when done right, landscaping can also add thousands of dollars of value to your home. Not only is this value enjoyable while you’re living there, but it’s also value you can cash in on if and when you decide to sell your home. However, it’s important to understand that landscaping doesn’t just have to be flowers and bushes. It can also include the awnings, sunshades, and other structures you incorporate to make your home’s outdoor livings spaces more functional and enjoyable. At Mesa Awning, our team of professional designers are here for you and can make all of your front and backyard dreams come true. We want to help create an oasis for you and your family, so today we are sharing several ways to add to your landscape.
1. Put Up a New Shed
For many homeowners, the shed is merely the place where all the yard tools and kids’ toys live. Very few consider it an extension of the house or realize that a rundown shed can be a real eyesore. Replacing the old shed with a new, sturdy, more desirable structure is a great way to add to your landscape and entice future buyers. If you want to match your home, then stick with the same color of siding and roofing. Alternatively, be a little more creative and go with a complementary color for your shed. Either way, tying this structure in with the rest of your home will make your backyard feel more put together and homey.
2. Install a Patio Cover & Privacy Shade
Concrete patios and porches can get extremely hot under the Arizona sun. Whether you enjoy the backyard patio or have a front-facing slab, keeping this outdoor living space cool is no small feat. If you’re looking for a way to add to your landscape with a new shady spot, then consider putting up a patio cover and privacy shade. With Alumawood® materials, you can rest assured knowing that you’re getting the best material for your money. Alumawood® is designed to mimic the look and feel of wood, but it won’t warp, crack, or peel like other wood structures. This material choice ensures that your patio covering remains in pristine condition for years to come. In addition to the overhead cover, you can keep your patios even cooler with a privacy shade that you can draw down or put up throughout the day. Privacy shades are also perfect for around the pool or for large patio areas that you want to enjoy with friends and family.
3. Decorate with a New Pergola
Do you have your eye on a new fire pit area in the backyard, but aren’t sure how to make it look appealing? Then you’ll want to consider a pergola. Pergolas are becoming more and more popular, especially for those looking for sitting areas in the grassy areas around their homes. A pergola is an excellent addition to your landscape since you can decorate it with ivy, hanging flowerpots, and a stylish new fire pit. These landscaping areas create the perfect space to lounge in the evening breeze or enjoy casual conversation with your family and friends. Pergolas are even great for homeowners that want a shady walkway around their flower gardens or over their Koi ponds.
