AO Blog Featured Image 1920X600

When asked what they love most about their corner terrace houses, most of these homeowners would say that it’s the strip of land between their houses and the neighbours. This is where air flows around the house, and light illuminates the inside of the house without any air well.

But it is also precisely this strip of land that leaves homeowners stumped as to how to landscape it.

Leave it bare – with exposed drains, ceramic tiles and dry grass patches and you may not even want to step into that part of your house.

But renovate it tastefully and you’ll find yourself wanting to spend more time outdoors, right at home.

You’ll be surprised at how little effort it takes for a corner terrace home to shed its 80’s yester-year look and take on a timeless lush sanctuary vibe.

Here are 5 ideas that can quickly and easily transform your corner terrace outdoors. Bonus point? They hardly need any maintenance, saving you time, money and effort.

 

  1. Level up the ground

If you’ve got open drains and uneven levels featuring tiles, grass and other flooring, why not consider levelling up the ground? This makes the place look much neater, and removes a tripping hazard for young children and old folks.

Levelling soil-based ground while ensuring that water drainage is smooth is one of our core strengths. Once the ground is level, you can lay it over with artificial grass or decking, or both.

  1. Sound factor

If you like the soothing trickle of water (or maybe that’s what the fengshui master prescribed), why not place a wall water feature right along the side of your corner terrace house?

And frame it with an artificial green feature for good measure? I can assure you that the combination of lush green foliage and soothing water will have you feeling like Tarzan – ready to conquer the jungle.

  1. Fun factor

Did you know that our artificial grass also comes in many other colours? Here’s a fun hopscotch area that we did.

The colour turf is made to withstand the hot sun and rain and will last for years. We can cut out the coloured turf into any shape or size. Alphabets, the sun, moon, ship, tree… If you have young kids at home, why not let them imagine what they’d like and let us bring their imagination to life?
