Architecture in the Garden

It’s good to have a balance in life—we all need that. So although during the work week I am involved in designing and building our clients’ residential projects, on weekends, I spend time in my garden. I love being outdoors, in a peaceful, private place, such as my small garden.

Gardening is a smart way to enhance your home’s curb appeal and architecture. A humble home is easily enriched with a thoughtful garden design—aesthetically, emotionally, and financially. You can add a bit of architecture in your garden. It’s a truth. 


Ideas for Garden Architecture & Boosting Your Home’s Curb Appeal

The right architectural features in your garden and yard increase your home’s curb appeal and value—and, more importantly, they allow you to enjoy your home in ways you perhaps didn’t think possible. The right garden architecture turns a house into your unique home.

You have many options for customizing your garden. Consider architectural elements such as:

  • Fountains
  • Finials
  • Murals (if you have a brick wall or similar structure in your garden)
  • Custom gate details
  • Stepping stones
  • Custom patterns in stone pavers
  • Benches
  • Arched entrance
  • Outdoor lighting

The options are nearly endless. If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas but know you want to customize your yard, the Wentworth team is happy to help. We can assess your space and discuss your options with you.
