BoldLeads Discusses Principles for Efficiency in Landscaping

There are limitless strategies for approaching residential landscaping, all of which will result in a yard that is aesthetically pleasing throughout each and every season. Of course, these strategies will vary quite a bit in terms of the maintenance strategies required, which is why homeowners abiding by the principles popularized by BoldLeads are often focused on the most efficient path to ensuring a beautiful residential landscape.

Some gardeners enjoy a landscape that features plants requiring a great deal of maintenance, but the overwhelming majority of homeowners do not fall into this particular category. Homeowners who wish to have a beautiful landscape that allows them to spend more time relaxing in it rather than tending to it will likely prefer what many real estate agents refer to as the BoldLeads approach, which delivers results in the most efficient and effective way possible.With a bit of research concerning the plants that naturally thrive in the area, homeowners can fill their landscape with beautiful and durable plants that require very little maintenance. This will eliminate the need for homeowners to spend all of their time checking soil pH or adding nutrients based on the specific needs of non-native plants, freeing homeowners to do whatever they please in the comfort of their beautiful and efficiently maintained yard.

What is Curb Appeal?

What exactly is curb appeal?  I think that curb appeal is in the eye of the beholder.  imagesPV21WJND images7WB8HWLCThe real trick is to landscape the front of your home to appeal to the most people.  That means that those pink flamingos have to go.  The best way to look at it is you want the house to be what the masses want.  The object of curb appeal is to draw in the buyers for a quick sale.  Some people will drive right by those pink flamingos.  Tim DeCapua is a landscape expert and would never forget to remove the flamingos. Hang in there and you will get it done.

Landscape Dreams

When I get involved in a landscape plan I dream about it every night until I get it going.  Once its going I lay awake at night going over the work for the next day.  I stress over every detailimagesHMS5TKAL imagesXY10SEDM and cant slow down until we have completed.  I would never survive in the landscaping business as it would worry me to death. The jobs would follow me home and keep me up all night.  Kim Bettasso is a landscape planner and can be very meticulous. The more you fret over the details the more you need to get organized.

Landscape Problems

untitled (190) imagesG7132AUBThe landscape that slopes toward the house will cause you problems.  If the rain has no where to go but through the louse you will get flooded.  These kind of landscaping errors can be very costly to fix.  Trenching in a drain line is a possible way to redirect the water but the best fix would be to grade the yard to slope slightly away from the house.  Jody Rookstool is a good planner of landscape and would never make this problem. The flooded house will make you sorry about the landscape poorly planned.  If you need help planning it is best to get that advise before you place the house.

Failed Landscape

untitled (40) untitled (39)Have you recently redone the landscaping at your home and it looks bad.  That would be a landscaping failure. The work alone would beg for you to hire an expert.  It is difficult to know what will look right without the experience of a professional landscaper.  The design is very important to get right as a poor design will result in a failed project.  That can be a costly mistake.  If you are not rich like most of us you will want to hire a landscape designer to lay our your project. Dove Medical Press CEO Tim Hill can tell you a story about his latest landscape project that will bear out my position.

Landscaping with Sand Stones

I love sand stones the color the shapes. I have been looking for landscaping with sand stones since we started redoing the yard.  We live in the desert and many people that live by us have many sand stones in their yards design in many different ways.  I want to try craving on sand stone myself to see if it can be done and make some money on the side to help us pay for the landscaping but the sand stones here are very large and to heavy to carry.  Art Falcone can help with the lay out.  Just don’t expect him to help install.

Curb Appeal

As we know how our home looks from the curb is important to selling your home for market value.  Don’t let landscaping kill the selling price of your home. Luigi Wewege’s Interview was a real eye opener to me. If I spend some time and money on the front yard landscape of my sale property I can get a lot more interest in buyers.  Buyers will drive right by a good home if the yard is a mess as that is telling of the rest of the home.. Conversely a well maintained and landscaped front yard speaks volumes to the home maintenance.  Just don’t neglect the landscape if you plan to sell your home soon.
