When looking to upgrade the visual appeal of your home, green elements like plants and flowers can go a long way in transforming your exterior spaces. While expertly manicured landscaping is highly prized, low-maintenance plants are an easy and affordable option, allowing you to reap the benefits of a beautiful yard without all the upkeep.
At Creative Environments, we understand the difference exceptional landscape design makes in the look and feel of a home, and for decades have helped homeowners achieve their design dreams. Read on for some of the benefits you will see when incorporating low-maintenance plants into your landscape design.
Saves Time and Money
As their name suggests, low-maintenance plants often require less watering, pruning and care when compared to more high-maintenance plants. While beautiful green elements are an important part of any outdoor aesthetic, many homeowners find investing in a few, low-maintenance plants will dramatically enhance the look of their home with minimal upkeep or investment. At our Preserves at San Tan model, the use of low-maintenance plants to frame and border the outdoor entertaining area is a quick and easy design upgrade. Plants housed in galvanized tubs like there are at this home is an affordable trend to bring rustic flair to outdoor spaces.
Helps Reduce Your Environmental Footprint
Low-maintenance plants are typically very sustainable and environmentally friendly, and even those who haven’t considered their eco-friendly impact will appreciate saving money when it comes to water and resource usage.
Low-maintenance plants are also great for families, as parents can make a fun and affordable project of teaching kids the importance of sustainability without worrying about the cost of replacement. Our model at Whitewing includes a designated garden area, a perfect place for families to flex their green thumbs.
Increase Value and Boost Curb Appeal
The inclusion of plants in the front of your property can help fill in large spaces and tie your aesthetic together, and utilizing low-maintenance plants is a cost-effective way to boost curb appeal. In our Cadence model, minimal planters spaced between windows help highlight exterior features of the home, and the inclusion of down lighting reflecting off the white garage door and plants underneath lends a warm and inviting effect. Green elements can make a huge difference when it comes to the appearance of your home, and when it comes time to sell buyers will appreciate how low-maintenance plants have affordably and effectively transformed your outdoor spaces.
