Landscaping: The Finishing Touch

One of the final steps of the new home building process is landscaping. Here at Copper Island Fine Homes, we’re happy to be involved in our clients’ landscaping vision. But the reality is that landscaping is a highly personal aspect of new construction — and one that most of our clients want to take the lead on after they’ve moved into their new Shuswap dream home. So we’re happy to refer most clients to any of our area’s highly reputable landscaping businesses…or even simply make some suggestions if they want to DIY their yard beautication.

Last week, Marcus Picton, Copper Island Fine Homes CEO and General Manager, snapped a few photos of a home we completed in April in the Highlands subdivision of Shuswap Lake Estates. In this case, the new homeowners opted to hire a Salmon Arm-based landscaping contractor, Everything Earth Landscaping & Rockwork. As Marcus discovered, and as shown in the photos below, the company did a superb job of our clients’ yard. In particular, we love how they used straight lines and right angles (especially in the feature Allen Block area beside the driveway) to complement the modern look of the home’s profile and exterior finishing.

If you’ve got questions about landscaping your project, or are looking for suggestions for landscaping contractors, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
