When you opt to buy a custom home most of your focus will be on the home itself. Getting everything just the way you want it when it comes to master bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bathrooms is important. However, don’t neglect the landscaping. Even if a home builder offers to include landscaping with the home building you can’t expect it to be a luxury home landscape. Sure it will look nice, but to create a unique and stunning landscape you will have to get creative.

At By Carrier we want your home to be a comfortable place to live and that includes having a lawn, garden and pool that matches your unique personality and lifestyle. Here are some tips for turning your Connecticut home into a beautifully landscaped property.

New England Charm

Being part of New England makes Connecticut a place that combines rich cultural history and modern wealth. This gives you the opportunity to create landscapes that are both luxurious and rustic. Including duck ponds, stone walls and vintage gardens will make your home fit right in with classic New England style.

Natural Looks

Again, the New England scenery is known for its history and this means the landscaping should have a traditional feel. Instead of the aqua blue infinity edge pool you may want a more natural pool system that blends in with the existing scenery of woodlands and rocks. These pools provide a beautiful looking water feature on your property that still offers a refreshing break from the heat without looking gaudy or over-the-top.


Another great idea for a Connecticut landscape is a garden. Again, you should steer clear of meticulous greenhouses and defined row plots and opt for a more natural looking garden that will seamlessly blend in with the surroundings. You can still grow your favorite trees, shrubs and plants but with a rustic garden theme it will appear more natural and less planned. A good addition to any garden landscape is a rock or stone wall. You can find amazing stone walls throughout New England and having one on your property will offer a fitting feature.
