Tip of the Week



Many strategies can enhance the flow and function of a home's interior and how a family lives and uses the space. But what about a home's exterior?



When it comes to a yard, the same thoughtfulness can help homeowners create functional spaces outdoors that not only look great, but also deliver maximum enjoyment.



Recreation: Designate at least one segment of your yard for open space, and plant grass or another plant that's friendly to foot traffic.



Property line: Define your property with attractive trees, shrubbery and fencing. Try mixing sizes of beautiful vinyl fence in different areas, with a 6-foot-tall section in the back to increase privacy.



Relaxation: Define deck or patio space with multifunctional furniture, decorative accents and outdoor dining necessities.



Amenities: Do you have a pool, spa or meditation garden? Add definition to these amenities while also protecting privacy with attractive professional-grade fencing.



Functional: Gardens typically need a sunny location, but make sure the placement doesn't disrupt the flow of the yard.



Concealment: Yard waste, garbage cans and compost piles can detract from the beauty of your outdoor space. Partition AC units and storage sheds with gate kits.
