We’ve talked a lot about creating beautiful outdoor spaces in the backyard, but what about the front yard? With cooler temperatures this summer, outdoor projects don’t seem as daunting as they normally do during a hot, humid summer in the Midwest. Why not take advantage of the weather and add a little curb appeal to your home’s exterior by installing a stone walkway or driveway? Semco offers a variety of landscaping stone that will bring your home’s exterior from ‘eh’ to ‘wow’ in no time!

Walkways

Does your current walkway provide a nice entrance to your home? If not, one way you can add ‘Wow’ to the front of your home is by adding a stone walkway or path. Use flagstone or pavers from Semco like the Pennsylvania Blue Pattern Flagstone shown above to create a beautiful path to your home’s front door and provide a warm, welcoming entrance for your family and friends.

Driveways

Say goodbye to cracked concrete with bits of weeds growing through and add a stone driveway. Stone driveways are durable and add a look of elegance and sophistication to any yard. If you have already added or plan to add a stone walkway, one idea is to continue the look into the driveway by using the same stone. Or if you want to spice things up a bit, go with a different, yet complementary stone. With over 30 varieties of flagstone, Semco has many stones that work well together.

Steps

A great finishing addition to the front yard is to add stone steps from the walkway to the front door. We suggest picking steps in similar pattern and color to those used in your walkway to provide a seamless match. Semco offers a variety of stone steps to help make a stunning entrance to your home.

These are just a few ideas for adding curb appeal to an existing home. With so much time spent in the backyard on patios and outdoor spaces, it’s easy to forget the importance of creating a warm, welcoming entrance to the front of your home for your family and visitors. Durable, long-lasting stone from Semco will not only add to the beauty of your home’s exterior but also add to its resale value, should you ever decide to leave. In the meantime you’ll love arriving home to a beautiful space each day!
