At Krier’s Construction, we are a local general contractor that offers full-service home improvement. While we’re known for our new construction and remodeling services, we also specialize in helping homeowners with their landscaping needs.
For homeowners still on the fence about exterior landscaping, we break down the benefits of improving your outdoor space.
1. It Preserves Your Natural Surroundings
Properly designed landscaping will let you add more natural features and preserve your surroundings. You essentially turn existing shrubberies and trees into focal points in your exterior contemporary or modern landscape. Additionally, landscaping helps you preserve your property’s top soil, limiting water run off and keeping your home’s foundation secure.
2. You Maximize Space
Landscaping your home isn’t restricted to preserving your property’s natural features. It also helps you maximize the space around your home. Adding a patio or deck gives you full use of the space and essentially extends your interior floor space outdoors. Your new exterior space can serve as a platform to entertain guests or a quiet retreat for those lazy weekends.
3. Grass and Landscaping
It’s a little-known fact that grass is cooler than both asphalt and cement, which is a shame as most homeowners don’t see these as active players in home energy efficiency. Through our landscaping services, we’ll make sure your property makes full use of the natural cooling properties of grass.
4. Landscaping and Water Management
Finally, effectively using grass will also improve your home’s “natural” water management properties. When your home has a healthy lawn, it will naturally absorb unhealthy runoff that might negatively affect your home’s exterior and foundation.
