It’s outdoor living time, and many Americans are doing it in great style. A local landscaper says many folks are adapting to the sluggish economy by foregoing the purchase of newer homes and upgrading current living spaces. This includes dressing up the backyard and patio, making it a gathering area for family and friends. After all, it’s a great way to get the kids outdoors and it adds overall value to the home. If you’re looking for ways to add beauty to your backyard habitat, check out these Charlotte landscaping businesses.
