How Landscaping Can Increase Value
  • Opening Intro -

    At first glance, you may think that landscaping simply impacts the aesthetics of a property with adding real value to the home.

-------------------------------------

With this in mind, you may easily place landscaping projects on the backburner and rank other improvements higher in terms of importance if they add obvious value to the property. However, landscaping improves more than aesthetics, and it can increase value substantially in several ways. After you learn more about it, you will see why your landscaping projects should garner active attention from you soon.

The Benefit of Curb Appeal

Your home’s value on the open market essentially is what someone else is willing to pay for it. Homes that have curb appeal may be more enticing to potential buyers. These are homes that may have more scheduled tours as well as more offers and higher offers from buyers. When it comes to lawn care, many yards have dandelions or other weeds growing and thus, lack the curb appeal buyers are looking for. You do’t want this to happen to you when trying to sell your home.

The Impact of Hardscaping

Hardscaping includes permanent features to your landscaping. This may describe patios, walkways, stone flower borders and other related features. Because these are permanent improvements to the property, they add to its value.

The Importance of Easy Maintenance

When a buyer tours your home, he or she will likely begin to envision living in the space. This includes taking on home maintenance and repair projects. While a poorly maintained yard has a lot of potential, most buyers do not want to renovate a yard. Instead, they want to simply maintain it. More than that, they may place value in easy maintenance features, such as a sprinkler system or gutters on the house.

The Condition of the Property

You may not realize it, but landscaping can impact property condition in several ways. For example, when a tree is planted too close to the sidewalk, the roots can cause the sidewalk to buckle. When tree branches are too close to the house, they can damage siding, windows and the roof. When the ground is graded toward the home rather than away from it, erosion around the foundation can occur. This can lead to serious foundation issues.

When you have a limited amount of money available to make home improvements, it is easy to focus on interior projects that seemingly add more value to your home. However, you can see that landscaping is critical to home value in many ways. Take time to analyze your landscaping today to determine how you can improve it. Then, you can reach out to a landscaper for assistance with major yard renovations.
