Mindful front yard interventions for your Syracuse, NY home can go a long way toward keeping it up-to-date. Modern front yard designs tend to lean more towards clean lines and a minimalist overall look, with warm colors and old-world touches still having their place. Here are some features to consider if you’re planning to bring a fresh look to your yard:
Regardless of their size, walkways keep things neat and organized, and provide easy access to your home and landscape features. Go formal with straight and direct walkways or add gentle curves to make the quick trip to the front door of your home more memorable. With the timeless flagstone texture of Rivenstone pavers your front walkway can offer age-old character from day one. Rivenstone offers many distinct shapes, which can be combined for a naturalistic, randomized surface.
With the versatility of Unilock wall units, a large or small water feature can be added to your front yard by a Unilock Authorized Contractor. A stylish fountain or a small pondless waterfall can add a welcoming soundtrack to your front yard and inject a lively energy into the landscape. Lineo Dimensional Stone is perfect for a fresh, modern water feature that will give your front yard the ambience of a luxury retreat. Alternatively, consider the rich flagstone texture of Rivercrest Wall. Rivercrest Wall comes in the natural colors, Buff and Coastal Slate, and is ideal for creating a more rustic front yard focal feature. In addition, Rivercrest Wall is perfect for taming and beautifying slopes, and can be extended throughout your front yard in the form of low walls, pillars, and raised planters.
Brussels Dimensional Stone, too, is an excellent choice for creating water features with the charming look of natural, quarried stone. Pair Brussels Dimensional Stone with Brussels Fullnose coping and Copthorne accents for a warm and inviting feature.
