These walls not only offer great curb appeal; they also help prevent erosion.
Adding a water feature to your front yard adds a calming element. Fountains can offer soothing rhythmic sounds that will surely please any guest. Not only are water features aesthetically pleasing, they also provide a great source for bird watching.
