HOW MUCH DOES LANDSCAPING INCREASE THE VALUE OF MY HOME

Is Landscaping a Good Investment? A well-designed landscape is shown to increase the value of a home by as much as 15-20%. Your landscaping project will more than pay for itself. When a homebuyer views a property, the front entrance is what they will notice first. Having an inviting front entrance and a comfortable custom backyard living space can increase many homebuyers' interest in a property.

While most people think of interior renovations as a way to boost a home's value, experts recommend looking at the outside of the property. Studies have shown that properly done landscaping provides the highest return on investment of any type of home improvement.

Some of the best ways to increase the value of your home through landscaping are:

Plant Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs can make your yard feel lush and inviting. They add immediate curb appeal and can be a great selling feature as they mature. Mature trees are known to greatly increase property values.

Front Entranceway/Walkway

Your front entrance is part of a potential homebuyers' first impression, so spend time making it perfect. If the front entrance is well-designed and decorated it instantly creates an inviting and elegant ambiance.

Increase Usable Patio Space

Installing a patio space in your backyard that could be used as a dining area or a seating/lounging area increases the backyard's usable square footage. This attracts more potential homebuyers' and creates an inviting, comfortable and practical space.

Install a Cabana/Pergola

Installing a patio space in your backyard increases the outdoor usable square footage, which attracts more potential homebuyers. A dining or seating/lounging area creates an inviting and comfortable space.

Landscaping is a great investment that will pay for itself. It will increase the value of your home and provide you with years of enjoyment.
