American Beautyberry
A plant that works well in varied elements and has great four season interest would be the beautyberry. The beautyberry is a deciduous shrub with tightly clustered purple colored berries that hold onto the shrub into the winter. They can grow to 5’ tall so make sure it has room to grow. It can stand alone in the landscape, or as a loose hedge at the perimeter of a property. This shrub has beautiful yellow fall foliage, which offers a great contrast to the metallic purple berries as they ripen. The berries are not enjoyed by birds so they tend to leave them alone.

Landscaping to add Home Value
Are you thinking about remodeling to add more value to your home? If you are then landscape renovations are the way to go, not only for added value but for a beautiful area to relax and entertain. According to a recent study by RealEstate.com, landscaping and hardscaping can give you a return on investment of 150 percent. That rate of return puts it ahead of other popular home improvement projects such as kitchen and bathroom updates. Research shows that home buyers will pay a premium for a well designed landscaped property, particularly one that features outdoor living areas and elements such as fireplaces and patios. Call Leydon Landscaping with all of your outdoor remodeling needs.
