How To Get Curb Envy in Clarksburg, Maryland

New Paver installation leading up to residential brick home

Forget Curb Appeal. Let’s Talk Curb Envy in Clarksburg, Maryland

Curb appeal means that your home and landscape look nice. Curb Envy means they look fantastic and are the envy of the neighborhood. Even if you do not care what the neighbors think, imagine how great you will feel coming home to a home and landscape that really fires you up!

So how do you get to the next level? Here are some sure fire ways to give your home the “pop”  it needs.

Curb Envy in Clarksburg, Maryland

Show Me The Way!

A beautiful, well designed flagstone or brick paver walkway is like an open arm greeting from a good friend. It is friendly. It draws you in. Your walkway should welcome guests coming from both the street and the driveway. It should be wide enough for two people to be able to walk comfortably next to each other. It should reflect the architecture of your home. For example, a home that has modern architecture should probably have an angular walkway with strong lines.

Roll Out The Carpet!

A lush green lawn free of weeds is something to behold. Not only is it beautiful and inspiring, a quality lawn helps cools the surroundings, filters water and produces tons of oxygen. A nice lawn brings back memories of playing on it as a child so get out there and enjoy it! The lawn provides the canvas and foreground for your gardens.

Curb Envy in Clarksburg, MarylandHere Come The Fireworks!

Nothing catches the eye faster than brilliant colors. The warm colors draw the eye in so use reds, yellows and oranges. Annuals planted in groupings offer strong displays whereas if they are planted in a line the colors offer less impact. Consider groupings of perennials and shrubs that will bloom in sequence. Plants with foliage color are a great way to provide the wow factor.

Give It Some Zaz!

A garden with curb envy cannot rely solely on color. Colors fade, winter comes. Consider adding some plants with interesting form and texture. There are a wide variety of conifers (Gold Thread Cypress), funky shaped deciduous shrubs (i.e. Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick) and ornamental grasses (Dwarf Fountain Grass) that can energy into the landscape.

Light It Up!

You’ve worked hard to make sure your landscape looks fantastic in the daylight, but what about night time? When night falls, without properly placed landscape lighting, your beautifully planned and placed landscape literally disappears. Make the most of your investment with landscape lighting that adds to the beauty of your evening curb envy. Well placed lights simply add a warm aura to your home.

All of these components can combine to take your home landscape past curb appeal and right into the curb envy zone. A good landscape designer or landscape architect (may we suggest Allentuck Landscaping Co. for this?) can help you get just the look you want, and our neighbors will envy.
