Curb Appeal 101
The landscaping and renovation industry is always throwing around the term “curb appeal.” Curb appeal is simply how great your home looks to someone standing out on the curb.
Most beneficial when considering the sale of a home, it’s also important to consider how much you personally should want to live in a home with curb appeal. After all, if a stranger would buy your home based on it, you’re doing something right in terms of providing an enjoyment-factor.
Whether you are planning to move or not, a patio is one of the best directions to go to amp up curb appeal in . In industry terms, a patio is considered a hardscape aspect of a yard; a man-made unmoving and unchanging object in the midst of an organic, green space.
When you hire Atlantic Deck Systems you’ll get exactly what you pay for—a top-notch hardscape patio, integrated flawlessly into your greenspace, to act as focal point and foundation in your yard.
DIY vs. Pro Installation
There are a lot of tasks one might be able to conquer on their own, but the installation of a hardscape element is not one.
When you add an unchanging design object to an otherwise organic space there is a lot to account for like growth over time, your yard’s flow, and all points one’s eye may be drawn to. While a garden is fluid and can be easily changed, once your patio is there, it won’t be coming out any time soon.
These are all factors we take into consideration when planning out your patio design. This ensures that you don’t wind up with a big block of cement sitting cold and unwelcoming, with a warm and lush surrounding.
When carried out improperly, an attempt at curb appeal can just do the opposite and make your home and yard less inviting.

Quick questions to ask yourself when considering a DIY job are:
- Am I capable of designing based on surroundings?
- Do I know which permits I need to obtain?
- Am I aware of any power and water lines I may interfere with?
- Do I know all the materials involved?
- Do I know the availability of the materials I need and have the ability to get a discount on them?
- Do I have the larger equipment that may be required?
- Am I willing to work without the warranty of errors not being my responsibility?
Once you’ve answered these, you will know for sure if you’re up to the task or not.
