New Landscape Designs Add Value

Have you moved into a new home and are looking to make it truly your own? How about preparing to put your house on the market? Whether you’re a new homeowner or looking to sell, updating your landscape can make a huge difference in your property’s value. It may also be the final touch you need to turn your house into your dream home. With the proper landscaping, you can be sure that your home leaves a lasting impression on neighbors, potential buyers, and yourself.

Don’t Just Increase Your Curb Appeal, Increase Your Happiness

According to a study conducted by Virginia Tech, not only does a fresh landscape design enhance your curb appeal, but it can also increase the value of your home by 15%. Plant size, type, and overall design were huge factors, having the biggest impact on your ROI. Zillow had also found that new home listings that mentioned “landscaping” in their description could sell for 2.7% more than expected. 

When it comes to your next outdoor renovation, the benefits aren’t measured in only dollars and cents. It is a chance for you to bring your dream yard, entryway, or outdoor area to life, and create a functional space for you to get together with family and friends. Research has proven that those who spend more time interacting with nature, even in their own yards, have reported reductions in stress, increased happiness, and are more productive.

  • Creating A Coherent Plan. Whether you’re planning a complete outdoor overhaul or are just planting new greenery, it’s important that you stick to a coherent plan. This will ensure that each piece of your design doesn’t look out of place, complements your home’s style, and saves you from going over budget with costly mistakes.
