Decks, Fences & Pergolas

Creating Your Dream Deck

Creating an outdoor haven for entertainment, relaxation or enjoyment, without even having to leave home, is an investment that has been gaining popularity for several decades.

Building a deck for backyard relaxation is many homeowners’ dream. By adding a deck to your home, you not only create extra living space outside but typically adds value to the value of your home as well. These days deck designs include consideration for different decking boards and materials.

Many homeowners are leaving behind the traditional route of wood and instead opting for composite decking. Composite decking has the same outward appeal of wood but doesn’t have the drawbacks that come from potential corrosion or splinters. It’s also a low maintenance option compared to wood.

At Curb Design we work with a variety of decking board materials. Our landscape designers will help you determine the best option for your project based off your individual needs.

Fence Ideas & Design

The type of fence you choose will not only play a key role in your home’s exterior design but also provide one of the most important benefits of all homes; security.

A professionally installed fence gives every homeowner that true sense of security we all desire. Fencing, whether it be chain link, wood or wrought iron, will give you a peace of mind.

Other fencing options include a garden fence or a picket fence enclosing your front yard. Finding the right fence company requires a little research into what you want it for. A privacy fence will give you the security and peace of mind mentioned above, while decorative fencing will enhance your homes aesthetic appeal.

Pergolas & Gazebos

One of the biggest differences between a pergola and a gazebo is the shape. Gazebos tend to be round or octagonal, whereas pergolas are square or rectangular. Both, however, provide a shaded sitting area for you and your guests.

By installing either a pergola or a gazebo, you can make your backyard design gorgeous. However, because you will be spending a significant amount of money for installation, it’s important to have a well thought out plan in place ahead of construction. You also want to choose a design that will complement your backyard’s architecture perfectly.

Pergolas and gazebos are a great way to add an element of privacy and comfort to your outdoor living space without taking away that feeling of openness and freedom. A well-constructed pergola or gazebo is the perfect accent to any deck, patio or sitting area. The functionality allows you to not only change the look and feel of your backyard, but it also gives you access to decorate and customize it with hanging plants, light fixtures and more.

Soil & Mulch

Installation & Repair

The Importance of Soil Quality

The quality of the soil is essential when you are planning on a landscape project. When we say soil quality, this refers to how well it does to what we are planning to use it for. People have different thoughts on soil quality as their needs for it also varies.

Specifically, soil quality is defined as the capacity for it to perform its function whether naturally or managed. Some of its functions include supporting animal activities and sustaining life to plants. It also includes maintaining better air quality and habitation to both human and animals.

Curb Design uses premium garden soils in all of our landscaping projects. These soils create the ideal growing environment by increasing water absorption, adding much needed nutrients, maximizing soil aeration and many other factors that encourage hearty and sustained plant growth.

The Benefits of Mulch

Mulching is the practice of placing a loose surface onto the surface of the soil in your flower or vegetable garden to protect, insulate and beautify the area. This loose covering is known as a mulch, and it can be either of an organic or inorganic variety. Examples of mulches include stone, compost, and grass clippings.

Every homeowner should understand the many benefits of mulching the soil in their garden. You need to understand the benefits of mulching, how to choose the correct mulch and also some of the different types of organic and inorganic mulches available. Properly installed mulch deters weed growth, helps soil retain moisture and can help regulate soil temperature on those hot summer days. Premium cedar mulch also adds a fresh aromatic aspect to your outdoor living space.

Landscape Greenery

The type of grass, plants, trees you choose for your landscape designs can make a huge difference. Just as different types of tomatoes perform differently and have different characteristics, so it is with grass, plants, and trees. All are not created equal.

Not only are there many different species or kinds of turf grass available for use in home lawns, but each species also has hundreds and hundreds of different individual varieties. Each variety has been selected or bred for different characteristics.

Bring nature back into your outdoor space with a wide variety of foliage options from Curb Design. We offer trees, shrubs, plants, flowers and many more options to our clients to consider when planning their landscaping project. With such a wide range of choices, you can create the exact look and feel you want for your outdoor space.

The perfect finishing touch on any landscaping project is the selection and installation of sod. Curb Design offers a large selection of premium, high quality sod options for our clients to choose from.
