Landscaping, Make or break a great house design.

I have been thinking about how to landscape the land at my new home. As a reult, I've spent a lot more time noticing how homes are landscaped and what I think works and doesn't. I've decided that how a yard is landscaped can either accentuate a great home design, or make it seem not so nice. Of course this is just my opinion. But, since this is my blog, that is what you are going to get.

If a landscape is done properly, it will compliment the style of a home, accentuate its architectural elements and can make the visitor feel much more welcome and at home. I'm not offering any answers to the problem of how to do this correctly. I'm a home designer, not a landscape architect. My suggestion is to get some help from someone that has had some experience with it. Sure, you can just go by trial and error, but consider the impact a well done landscape design will have on your home when you go to sell it. That may not be on your mind in the near future, but you always have to look at your home as an investment. The way Americans change careers these days, you never know how long you'll stay in one place.
