You never get a second chance to make a first impression, which is why getting it right the first time matters. Here is how we can add curb appeal to your location.

Enhance the Entrance

Ensure your property is welcoming to all by paying close attention to the entrance. It is important not to fill your entrance with too much as you want to keep it wide and easy for your visitors to come in and out. Place focus on the pathway by using attention-grabbing materials and distinctive design. Your pathway can be lined with flowers and bushes or can be paved with brick, stone, concrete or other surfaces.

Focal Points

Drawing eyes to certain parts of the building with focal points is a great way to add luxury and make your space stand out. It allows you to highlight areas you really want people to see, such as your sign and draws attention away from areas you want to hide. While focal points can be beautiful, it is important not to add too many design elements or the space can feel overwhelmed.


Invest in Seasonal Design

Changing your landscape design to match the current season shows others how much you care about your space and your business overall. Not to mention, it creates interest in your space and draws eyes to your location for this season and in the next. In the summer, we recommend bright colors and fun textures. During the winter, give evergreens and lighting elements a chance.  


Keep People In Mind

Before you make changes to your property, consider the areas people use most and how they use them. Adding trees could provide much-needed shade to areas where people spend time. Perhaps your rooftop could be transformed into a retreat for people to escape from stress. By creating these valuable places, you are adding to the worth of your property.


Size Matters

When deciding how to design your space, it is incredibly important to take the size of your property into account. Using plants that are too large can make a small space feel even smaller. In tight spaces, we recommend using plants that grow upward rather than outward such as living walls. Luckily, our expert design team has experience in designing both small and large spaces.  


As you can see, the choices you make regarding your landscape can have an enormous effect. Contact us today to learn more about how John Mini Distinctive Landscapes can add value to your space!
