Landscaping Adds Value to Your Home

When it comes to adding value to your home, most homeowners think of the interior of the home or changing the exterior.  Just like people, first impressions count even with homes.

Your home is the first thing you see.  It gives the home curb appeal and adds value. Landscaping can add as much as 10% or more to your home's value vs. a home that has no landscaping done.  Landscaping goes beyond just plantings.  Include features such as decks, ponds, waterfalls, garden paths, lighting, fences, etc.

Landscaping is something one could do themselves, however you should think twice before putting the shovel in the ground.  You should have a plan in place.  Hiring a pro that knows about botany, engineering, and design can go a long way and create a landscape that will all flow together.  If you decide to take the job on yourself, consider getting a quick sketch and some basic advice from a home and garden center.

Without a plan, you can end up with a piecemeal approach.  The last thing a homeowner wants is a hodgepodge of plants and trees that make the property feel disorganized.

A few small tips to getting your yard in shape;
  • Keep the lawn mowed
  • Keep the yard free of weeds
  • Add some mulch and edging for a clean and tidy appearance
  • Plant some annual flowers near the front entrance


If you ever decide to sell your home, a positive first impression of a home can make all the difference.  With a little attention, you can increase your chances of a better outcome if/when it comes time to sell.
