Chippewa Valley Landscaping Options: Beyond Trees and Plants


As a homeowner, or someone in the process of building or buying a home, it is likely that you have spent time thinking about everything from the household systems to the color of the paint and the lights on the porch. However, there is an important element that many people overlook until they’ve unpacked the last box, and that is the landscaping.

By landscaping, we do not only mean the types of trees and plants that surround the property – though that’s a big part of it. What we mean are those elements that your builder or contractor can provide with a little planning up front.
At R. Tews Construction & Design, we delight in making the best of this outdoor real estate. After all, “curb appeal” isn’t only critical when you’re selling a property, it’s the first thing people will notice about your home—including you!
Here are some areas where the design team at R. Tews can help:

Outdoor lighting: It isn’t just about a motion detector light near the door or entry. It is also the subtle lighting that illuminates the pathways all around the exterior of the home, the gentle lights that run the length of the front or rear porches, and more. These are design elements that you must discuss with your contractor.

Outdoor tech: From full outdoor kitchens on the patio or near the pool to speakers hidden inside of rocks, outdoor tech is a wonderful way to enhance your at-home experiences while also boosting your property’s value.

Security: Your remodeling & general contractor can also help to secure your property by suggesting a diversity of motion detecting lights, security lights, and more.

With such enticing options, you don’t even need to wait for an interior project to get started. Maybe this is the year you upgrade the outside of your home, and be the envy of the neighborhood!
