Add Curb Appeal to Your Home

The owner wanted an inviting, more cottage-like look for the home. We added a new front porch, did a face-lift on the front facade and installed a new stone walkway and a picket fence. We filled in the central lawn area with shade-tolerant, colorful plantings like Endless Summer Hydrangea, Autumn Ferns and Impatiens. The final touches included hanging baskets, new planters, window boxes filled with annual plants and a new mailbox with vines.
