When you own a piece of property, you can become an artist. With the home and yard as your canvas, you can envision the perfect residence. The additions you place can make people turn their heads in wonderment and awe. After all, there's nothing in the rule book of life that says you have to conform with the ideas of other people. That is, unless you live in a HOA governed area. Here are several of those additions that may inspire you to be creative.
Waterfalls can offer an incredible visage to any property. Although they can take a bit to construct, they are often the center-most attraction of the lawn in which they are built. It can also provide a incredible place to sit and relax while reading your favorite book. Some people will even install small pools complete with outdoor goldfish or koi.
Ever thought about how nice it would be to have a stream running through your property? It's not all that difficult to the right contractor. A small stream that recycles its own water gives the property a sense of life and movement. It can also be nice to listen to at night like a babbling brook.
Newly Reformed Deck
Decks are excellent additions to the property as they essentially give you an outdoor room for living space. With a large enough addition, you could easily host a barbecue for any reason. Decorate the deck with plant life or some other attraction and people may be eager to visit.
Fresh Coat of Paint
If it's been a while since you've painted the exterior of the house, a fresh coat could give it a like-new appearance. It can also help protect it from the elements such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. Change the color altogether and the neighbors will definitely notice.
Adding gardens, planter boxes or trees can give the yard a completely new look. This is especially true if the yard is currently nothing more than a flat piece of dirt. Not only will this addition turn heads, but it will also improve your overall view of the property itself. You might be amazed at what grass, trees and a few rose bushes can do for your attraction to the property.
From simple additions such as building stairs for a deck to elaborate pools and ponds, there are so many things you can do. You don't have to settle for what's available in the yard. With a little creativity and the right contractor, anything is possible.
