Tips for Landscaping a Corner Lot

Believe it or not, owning a corner home can be an advantage.

A “corner lot” means that you own a corner home in a neighborhood. Corner lots or homes usually are substantially larger because there’s no other home on one side of it, and it’s close to the street. Some homeowners have trouble landscaping corner lots because it can be challenging to fill up a lot of space strategically, and in a visually pleasing way. However, that’s where we come in. We’re an expert landscaping company that can plan and plant the perfect landscape for you, regardless of the size and style of your home. Do you own a corner home and aren’t sure of how to landscape it? Then, keep reading. In this blog, we’ll share some noteworthy tips. 

Add a Patio 

Patios, along with a privacy fence, can protect your corner home from being a stomping ground. What tends to happen with corner lots is that people like to hang around them or cut through them. A well-designed patio sends a message that people shouldn’t disregard your property. A privacy fence takes away access from unwanted visitors and neighbors walking their pets on your property and leaving you to clean the mess. What’s excellent about us is that not only are we an expert landscaping company, but hardscaping is our forte as well. From start to finish, we’ll help cultivate a lovely landscape and hardscape for your corner lot.

Create a Planting Border or Edge

Planting borders or edges are not only visually appealing, but they discourage pedestrians from walking from the sidewalk to your yard. Low-growing plants are ideal for this method. Never heard of a planting border? This setup involves digging out soil in unique shape and then planting low-growing perennials, shrubs, and small trees in this area. It doesn’t necessarily have to curve or round out. The form all depends on the size of your yard and its incline. Common courtesy is not to walk over someone’s beautiful flowers or plants. People are more likely to disregard just grass alone.

Retaining Walls 

Adding a retaining wall to your corner home is ideal because you have the space to do so. Not only does a stone wall have curb appeal, but it, well, keeps people on the curb. It’s a protective barrier that will not only prevent landscape erosion, but it sends a message that you care deeply about your property and that others should too.
