Are You Adding Drama To Your Country Home Landscape?

Construction & Contractors Blog

Have you recently moved to a house in the country, and does that mean that you have a great deal of acreage? If so, having all of that land means that you can think big when it comes to your landscaping. Do you already have a plan for designing a dramatic front and back yard? If so, maybe you are already hard at work. 

On the other hand, maybe you are looking for ideas that will make the landscape unique, even dramatic. From arranging for ornamental aluminum fencing to designing different garden spaces, here are some ideas that might help you.

Ornamental Aluminum Fencing - Even before you purchased your land, did you already know that one of the first things you would do would be to arrange for fencing? Maybe you want to keep things like deer and wild pigs off of your property. Plus, the fence would give your family extra protection. 

One idea is to select ornamental aluminum fencing. It is versatile and will last for a very long time. Does your land have hills? The aluminum fencing will easily adapt to that kind of terrain. Maybe you want extra pretty fencing? If so, think of buying decorative fencing that includes a butterfly scroll as part of the design. Choosing black will be one of the factors that will add drama to your fencing, thus making your landscape more interesting, too. 

Focus on the kind of gate you want. Select a wide gate for vehicles to go through and a more narrow one for pedestrians. Instead of using a key for the smaller gate, think of selecting an entry mechanism that requires a code. And, of course, you'll want remote control for the wider gate. 

​Different Dramatic Garden Spaces - One way to landscape a huge amount of land is to leave a large part of it natural. That part can be outside of your fence. Think of different ways you can landscape the inside area. For example, one garden could hold different types of rose bushes. Another area could also be used for a hardscape.

A patio area would be nice, too. If you do decide on having a patio, choose wrought iron furniture that will complement your ornamental aluminum fencing. And, don't forget to buy huge pots that can be filled with things like small trees, ferns, and flowering plants.

A Study Of Wood Flooring Materials, Tools, and Techniques

Hello, I am Deborah Stillen. My passion for hardwood flooring began at a hotel on my first vacation as an adult. The gorgeous hotel flooring was made of a mix of mahogany, walnut, and teak materials that looked exotic to my eyes. Before that, I had only lived in places with wall-to-wall carpet. Upon coming home, I began to devise a way to cover my floors in wood materials. I became an expert on all of the wood flooring options available on the market today. I also studied different installation techniques and the tools used to create amazing patterns with the wood. My house now features a fine mix of bamboo and recycled wood flooring to create a layout I adore. I hope you can use the information on this site to bring wood floors to your home.
