Downtown Ann Arbor Urban Landscape

Urban home curb appeal can be significantly enhanced through thoughtful landscape design. In Ann Arbor’s bustling downtown, the exterior appearance of a home is a crucial element that sets it apart and adds value. Well-planned landscaping can transform even small front yards or entryways into inviting, aesthetically pleasing spaces. Elements such as lush greenery, colorful flowers, stylish pathways, and strategic lighting not only create a welcoming atmosphere but also reflect the homeowner’s personal style, in a city named ‘Tree Town’.

  • Formal hardscape elements such as retaining walls, fence columns and walks define space, manages slope and welcome guests.
  • Effective planting design creates formality and stately elegance through all seasons.
  • Comprehensive drainage design mitigates stormwater runoff away from basements in Ann Arbor’s dense clay soil.
