I can’t say it enough, first impressions are everything! Studies show that 25% of a buyer’s mind is made up about a home the moment they arrive at the front door. With these warmer months upon us, it’s time to amp up the curb appeal of your house to welcome buyers. Remember, curb appeal includes more than just landscaping…it’s lighting, color palette, and cozy outdoor spaces.

Leveling up your Landscaping

Arizona is known for its desert landscape, but that doesn’t mean your backyard has to be barren and boring. When it comes to plants, we know that agave and cacti provide a wide and gorgeous variety that will thrive in our hot climate. But it is worth your while to understand how tropical plants like Bougainvillea and hibiscus can flourish here with proper irrigation. Tropicals can provide much-needed color and lushness to your landscaping, and a gorgeous contrast. Ornamental grasses like red yucca, slipper plant, deer grass, Mexican Feather grass, and Bamboo Muhly grass provide texture and can make beautiful planter filler, as well as visually divide areas of your yard.

Colors to Incorporate in Your Outdoor Space

In terms of color, sticking to a desert-inspired palette that includes warm, earthy tones is always a classic choice to highlight the natural beauty of our local landscape. But, adding pops of color like blue and green complement the natural surroundings and give your yard a sophisticated high-end look. You can incorporate these colors through choices in outdoor furniture, textiles, cushions, and decorative accents.

Desert Design Elements

The most impactful design element you can add to your desert home is your pool or spa. Nothing adds a touch of luxury like a water feature. It provides a relaxing retreat from the hot Arizona sun, but also adds a stunning focal point to your outdoor space. Outdoor kitchens, pergolas, and vertical structures are great options for visual impact, and they highlight the outdoor lifestyle that Arizona provides us. Always think about creating spaces to entertain guests under the shade.

In addition to these features, remember to incorporate outdoor lighting, a trellis with vines, lush trees, and outdoor rugs to give your backyard a unique, personalized touch. The key is to strike a balance between functionality and aesthetics, creating a space that not only looks beautiful but also serves as a practical and enjoyable outdoor space. So why wait? There’s no better time to start sprucing up your outdoor escape!
