Whether your Indianapolis home simply needs a facelift or you are planning to update your outdoor area for resale, curb appeal can add value to your home. If you aren’t sure where to start to liven up your outdoor space, Garrity Stone, Inc. has three tips to help you with the process.
1. Scout Outdoor Trends
You may already have ideas for your dream outdoor space, or like many people, you are at a loss on where to start. We suggest driving around and looking at homes that catch your eye. Take notes on how homeowners have landscaped, hardscaped, and designed their outdoor living areas. You can even research online or contact professionals for ideas. Our experts know stone, for example, and can offer their advice on cost and choosing stone material for your particular needs.
2. Make a Plan
Once you’ve done the research, draw up your plan. You may be able to complete the tasks in one go, or you might have to do it in incremental steps. Create a budget and a timeframe to work with, and list out what you will need for the project to be completed. Be realistic with your plan. You’ll thank yourself later.
3. Buy Quality Materials
After you have scouted out the trends and made a plan, it’s important that you look for quality materials that will last. If you find someone who specializes in a product, connect with them. You will be grateful to do the job right the first time and can benefit greatly from their expertise. We specialize in natural stone products such as boulders, limestone, flagstone, and more, for example, and we can even direct you to a quality contractor if you need the help.
