Curb appeal is a topic that I often write about because of its significant impact on your property’s market value. It can boost it as much as 28%, if done tastefully.
One way to take your landscaping up a notch is to incorporate garden statues in your design. Here are a couple of tips you may want to consider.
- Create a beautiful focal point: When selecting the ideal space for your garden statue, consider factors such as what direction the statue will be facing when viewing it from windows inside your home or how it will contribute to your outdoor entertaining space.
- Use a statue to highlight another landscape design feature: If your landscape features a spectacular pond, highlight this feature by strategically placing a statue in the vicinity of your pond. Other great spots to use a statue include along pathways, next to doorways, and nearby outdoor furniture.
Just like a home with too much furniture and clutter, you do not want to overcrowd your yard with too many decorations. Keep it simple. Let the garden statues speak for themselves and fit tastefully.
