If you are planning a street party then you still have time to improve the look of your home and be the envy of the neighbourhood.
An attractive front garden and driveway improves kerb appeal and saleability of your property. A well designed front garden can greatly improve the value of your home and provides convenient secure off-street parking.
First impressions count and the approach to your house is where good impressions are made. Creating the wow factor will make your property the envy of your friends and neighbours and with the added benefit of adding value.
A front garden that looks shabby and overgrown gives the impression that the property is unloved and neglected. Cutting back overgrown shrubs instantly creates a lighter and more managed look to your property.
A well designed front garden can incorporate extra parking spaces as well as an elegant lawn and planting scheme; there is no need to pave over the whole area. The use of planting areas and lawn is a brilliant solution to make a more eco-friendly garden. An ornamental front wall or railings create a boundary to the garden and adds security to the home.
Replace old tarmac and cracked concrete with paving that blends with the surroundings. Modern block paving is a popular choice thanks to the array of styles and shades available. Choose from rustic cobbles that suit period properties to ultra-modern clean lines more suited to the contemporary home.
It is important to plan and style your driveway so that it suits your way of life and character of your home. The design is the key to realising the potential of your driveway.
