How to Make Your Brick House Feel at Home in the Landscape

How to Make Your Brick House Feel at Home in the Landscape

Brick is one of the most popular choices for home exteriors in the U.S. 

Jay Sifford, a Houzz contributor, shares his tips to pull your home’s colors into your garden for a more cohesive exterior look.  I agree with Jay’s comment,  “I believe in our hectic world we seek peaceful continuity in our personal spaces. A large part of that is creating a seamless dialogue between home and garden. Whether your home is made of brick, stone, siding or stucco, we can take some cues from our houses to make them truly at home in our landscapes.” Here are ways to landscape your brick home and samples of Schmechtig Landscapes brick home design projects and landscape maintenance work in Glenview, Winnetka, Wilmette and Barrington Hills, Illinois:
