Winter is almost here, and even though it may not seem like it, November is almost over. Are you looking to update your home’s landscape and hardscape features before the holiday season starts in earnest this year? Astound your neighbors in Ellicott City by experimenting with some of these projects to bring new life to your house and its surroundings.
A pathway to your front door calls to mind a time gone by, like something out of a Tolkien book. Wherever you add a path to your landscape and hardscape features, just remember that a walkway ties everything together. Need to perform some preventative maintenance? Not a problem. Looking to have a garden party and show off your stunning backyard? What about a wedding reception? Hardscape paths can provide solutions for your event planning dilemmas.
By installing a retaining wall, you can add a new dimension to your yard and its hardscape profile. Create some border walls to indicate where your patio begins and ends. You can also help protect your vegetable gardens and basements from being flooded during the torrential autumn rainstorms that are bound to increase in frequency and ferocity the closer we get to December. Do you need another place to sit? A retaining wall is a simple and relaxing spot from which to survey all of your new landscape and hardscape features.
As we’ve previously discussed, this time of year brings with it earlier nightfall. Greet darkness like an old friend when you’ve got plenty of outdoor lighting for your Ellicott City landscape. It’ll bring some newfound beauty to the area around your yard, and make it easier to walk around in after dark. Best of all, you don’t need an excessive amount of light to create breathtaking effects throughout your neighborhood this fall. Prepare your street for an exciting holiday light show by upgrading your current outdoor lighting setup!
Fire and Water
Don’t forget about adding some fire and water features. Whether they are outdoor fireplaces and fire pits or ponds and waterfalls, Lehnhoff’s Landscaping can provide you with it.
