Creating beautiful outside spaces is a great way to add value to your residential property. A carefully planned residential landscape design extends livable space beyond the interior, making a home, a neighborhood, or a multi-family complex a more desirable place to live—and significantly increases investment return.
RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN SERVICES INCLUDE:
Making the places people live better
A house or housing development is more than a place to shelter people. Residential development projects—from single homes to family compounds, from subdivisions to multi-family complexes—are enhanced by a thoughtful approach to landscape design that adds beauty, function, and value.
HRC Engineers’ landscape architects apply their expertise to help make the places people live, better. Our professionals use the latest techniques, tools, and technology to create appealing outdoor environments that provide an added dimension to home life.
Gardens; play structures; lighting; water features; recreation areas; and gathering spots. Depending on needs and wants, a cohesive residential landscape plan encompasses the exterior amenities that improve residents’ quality of life.
Inviting entry ways
The entrance to a house, a cluster of homes, or an apartment community is an important focus of the landscape plan. Plant materials—trees, shrubs, and flowers—are inviting to residents and visitors, adding color and beauty and a sense of welcome, and buffering sound. Lighting highlights architectural features and provides a sense of safety.
A place to relax
A well-designed seating area invites residents and their guests to take time out and enjoy nature. Benches, low walls, stand-alone tables, and chairs—coupled with a fountain or artistic element, such as a sculpture—provide the ideal setting to gather or spend solitary time.
Color adds interest
The right combination of flowers, shrubs, and trees working together bring color to a landscape—and attract birds and butterflies. HRC designers focus on creating spaces featuring native species, which are hardy and require less care. They’re known to specify plants that provide continuous visual variety throughout the year.
For subdivisions and apartment complexes, shared outside spaces are amenities that encourage socialization. Picnic areas, fire pits, pavilions and sports’ fields, and courts give those with common interests a place to get together. Private spaces within the common areas give those seeking solitude a place to go within a wider expanse of nature.
Security and privacy are key
HRC residential landscape plans are created to help ensure safety. Lighting at entrances, in parking areas, and along walkways increases residents’ peace of mind. Privacy is possible using attractive fences and walls, grouping of plants, perennial grasses, and trellises also provide the sense of separateness required.
