What does “curb appeal” actually mean? It means pretty much exactly what you think: how does your home, building, or residence look from the street? In other words: would potential buyers have any interest in your building, or would they walk away?
Curb appeal can be affected by a great many factors – building age, size, condition, cleanliness, and more – but good landscape design and maintenance is by far the most likely to sway potential buyers. Landscaping (which includes plants, topography, water, stone, and more) is one of our most important visual needs, so designing and maintaining a landscape in a way that works for residents can creates a sense of place, a sense of being, and a sense of community, thereby making people more comfortable and positive.
Check out this video from our “Ask a Landscaper” series in which Cody, one of our maintenance managers, discussed curb appeal.
