Curb Appeal Tip: Improving The Appearance Of A Concrete Block Wall
One of the biggest eyesores affecting curb appeal is a big concrete block or stucco wall right outside French doors or the kitchen window.
While the block wall probably provides security, privacy and noise control, they are usually butt ugly! I discovered a brilliant, simple and inexpensive solution on the CaliBamboo web site. By attaching 2×4’s top and bottom to the face of the stucco or block wall using concrete screws or anchors, it enables you to attach bamboo fencing panels and give the wall a much more pleasing appearance.
This bamboo application could work well with many architectural/garden styles.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet and is considered a renewable resource. Bamboo is also amazingly strong, durable and insect resistant. Many Bamboo cultivars grow particularly well in Los Angeles gardens.
