6 Ways Landscapes Increase Your Home’s Value

Our area’s housing market is surging month-after-month, breaking new records!
What was first seen as a post-pandemic rebound is still on fire.
Some homes in our area are on the market mere minutes.
For sellers, it can be a big payday!

Realtors help sellers get top dollar with tips on decluttering and investing in minor repairs, but landscaping accounts for 85% of what buyers first see when they pull up in front of a home.

According to the American Society of Landscape Architects, investing 8-10% of your home’s value in soft and hard landscaping can fetch 15-20% more at closing. Here are a few of our favorite ways:

  1. Spruce up a plain yard with shrubs and flowering plants.
  2. Line driveways, walkways, and patios with liriope, annuals, or dianella.
  3. Water, mow, and fertilize regularly to maintain daily curb appeal.
  4. Add a water feature to increase backyard ambience or decrease street noise. 
  5. Create a sense of privacy with vines, climbing flowers, and evergreens. 
  6. Upgrade your landscape design to complement your home’s architecture.

In these uncertain yet opportunistic times, using a professional team of landscapers (like us) has never been a better investment.
