There is no denying our beautiful state of Illinois has a lot to offer in terms of one-of-a-kind state parks, landmarks, city-life, dining, and entertainment, not to mention it’s a great place to raise a family. However, let’s face it, the winter months in Illinois can seem to drag on forever, that’s why creating an appealing outdoor living area can not only extend your time outdoors, it can add serious curb appeal to your home’s exterior. Our mission at A.M. Woodland Outdoor Design is to provide the highest quality services and to exceed our clients’ expectations every time. Whether you have a tiny space or an expansive area, a stylish patio is perfect for those long-awaited summer months! Are you ready to extend your outdoor season and create swoon-worthy curb appeal to your home? If so, here are some ideas to consider. 

Brick patio 


If you can dream it, our team can create it. Brick patios are a lasting expression of your family’s style. Gone are the days of a concrete slab outside of your sliding glass window. Today, patios can include almost any feature you can imagine (think fresh pizza from your own pizza oven), fireplaces, outdoor lighting and speakers, and a myriad of other personalization options. A brick patio has a beautifully rugged appeal, yet is resilience and will last homeowners years to come! Brick patios can be customized as far as layout and design to compliment your home’s style.

Don’t forget your walkway


Have you ever pulled up to a beautiful home but the walkway was worn and unsightly? A new walkway is often an overlooked area of your home’s exterior but can add instant curb appeal. Thankfully, there are many options from a winding stone path, or something more ornate. Your beautiful new walkway is the very first thing people will see so it’s a worthwhile and lasting investment! To up the ante when it comes to your design, consider adding lighting, platings, or even ornamental trees to showcase your home and set the stage.

Take time to think about your design 


Your home’s exterior and curb appeal can create the perfect first impression so take some time to really think about your design ideas, style, budget, and functionally of your space. The National Association of Landscape Professionals suggests asking your landscape company to see a project that will be similar to the work you want to do prior to hiring them, or view their online gallery. This is a great way to ensure the company reflects the style you desire, professionalism, and integrity.

When it comes to curb appeal, the possibilities are endless! Whatever it is that you are envisioning, the professionals at A.M. Woodland Outdoor Design can do it. Give us a call today at (847)-224-2167 and let’s get started on creating your dream yard.
