Creating an outdoor haven 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 also add value to your home as well.
Many homeowners are leaving behind the traditional route of wood decks. More people are choosing to go with composite decking. Composite decking has the same outward appeal of wood. But, it 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, including wood and composite. Our landscape designers will help you determine the best option for your project based. We are your go-to solution for Calgary landscaping services.
When picking a material for your fence, remember that not only will it play a role in adding privacy and curb appeal, it’s also there for 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. As with any landscaping project, you need to consider what you want the fence for. Is it for that privacy and security? Or maybe it’s to add an accent to your yard. Whatever the reason, we offer the solution.
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.
By installing either a pergola or a gazebo, you can make your backyard design gorgeous. However, it’s important to have a well thought out plan in place ahead of construction. You will want to choose a design that complements your backyard’s architecture perfectly.
A well-constructed pergola or gazebo is the perfect accent to any deck, patio or sitting area. The functionality allows you to change the look and feel of your backyard. It also gives you an additional space to decorate and customize with hanging plants, light fixtures and more.

Mulching is the practice of placing a loose surface onto the surface of your flower or vegetable garden to protect. Mulch will insulate the garden and can beautify the area. Mulch can be either of an organic or inorganic variety. Examples of mulches include gravel, compost, and grass clippings.
There are plenty of benefits to using mulch in your garden. However, with so many choices you may need help deciding which type to use. Properly installed mulch deters weed growth, retains moisture and regulates soil temperature. Premium cedar mulch also adds a fresh aromatic aspect to your outdoor living space.
The type of grass, plants, trees you choose for your landscape designs can make a huge difference. Just as various types of tomatoes have separate characteristics and perform differently, it is the same with grass, plants, and trees.
We offer suggestions on trees, shrubs, plants, flowers and more to our clients 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.
