A garden and other outdoor spaces can be an extension of your home and a great source of joy and pride, to be enjoyed as a social gathering place, a private area for relaxation and a pleasurable nature experience.
Builders understand the importance of landscaping and pay attention to the natural environment on their building sites, carefully preserving trees and other natural growth on building sites whenever possible. Green spaces and attractive landscaping of common areas are an integral part of larger community developments. Walkways and driveways are designed to enhance the appeal of individual homes.
Some builders offer landscaping options which allows you to finish the look of your home and enjoy all of the benefits of your purchase immediately.
There is a lot to think about when you begin your landscape planning by developing a full vision of your entire outdoor space:
As of January 2019, owners of new homes are required to landscape their front and side yards within the first two years of possession.
Landscaping can include a variety of options such as plants, trees, grass or rocks. Your chosen landscape material must allow water to easily flow through into the ground.
Visit any of your local home and garden centers for information on, or materials for, residential landscaping.
