Your journey in creating a new construction home begins with finding land, a floor plan, and the features and finishes that will make it your own. Building a house with the help of a new home builder is an exciting process, but it is not over until you have put in the final touches. What about the landscape? Landscaping a new construction home is easier than you think. Consider these tips for creating an outdoor property you will love.
Tips for Landscaping a New Construction Home
Look at the Bigger Picture
The first step is to look at the bigger picture: the entire outdoor property. Viewing your exterior property in this context will help you understand the flow of traffic from the front to the back of your house and what elements to include. It will help you create a balanced, functional, and beautiful property.
Consider the Yard’s Purposes
Landscaping a new construction home means tailoring it for your family, so your landscape design will ultimately depend on your preferences. Some families might want a backyard big enough for kids to play soccer, and others might prefer a strolling garden full of flowers. Making a list of what purposes you want your yard to fulfill will help tremendously.
Consider Privacy Needs
Ameri-Star Homes builds new homes in new home communities and on individual lots alike. If you plan to live in a neighborhood, consider how to create backyard privacy. A fence will usually do the job, but depending on the landscape, evergreen trees and shrubs can also be beneficial.
Include Your Favorite Plants
Your new home’s landscape is a place to enjoy fresh air and nature. Designing the landscape is an opportunity to put your favorite trees, flowers, etc., right outside your door and enjoy a beautiful setting when you enter and exit your home. For low-maintenance plants, consider hardy species and plants suitable to your soil, such as natives.
Create Outdoor Living Spaces
Lastly, remember to create outdoor living areas to enjoy your outdoor property. A deck, patio, or porch are great features to consider. Ameri-Star Homes can help you create not only your house but your landscape as well.
