4 Ways to Add Real Value To Your Home

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 28 March , 2018

It’s estimated that upgrading your home’s landscaping can boost the overall value of your home by almost 12%. So while it’s tempting to spend a great deal of time improving things indoors – especially during the winter months – there’s much to be said for improving your home’s curb appeal by upgrading your landscaping.

In this issue, we’ll talk about why landscaping is so important and share a few somewhat surprising ways you can add to your home’s value.

How does landscaping affect my home value?

It shows that you pay attention to detail and gives the impression that your entire property is properly maintained. Aesthetics are everything when it comes to selling a home, and improvements that will capture a prospective buyer’s eye are definitely a wise investment.

The idea is to give the prospective buyer something they want. A tree that is properly sized and strategically placed, for example, can be especially pleasing to the eye, but it also adds real quantitative value by shielding your home from the summer heat and serving as a good anchor for a hammock.

What are some examples of landscaping that can add value to my home?

There are quite a few projects you can undertake to add a significant increase to your home’s value. Remember, landscaping goes far beyond simply mowing the lawn, even though that’s vitally important. Landscaping can include other projects involving decks and patios, flowerbeds, water features, fire features, irrigation systems and more.

  1. Use retaining walls to frame your property.
    Ideal for giving your yard an orderly appeal, a quality retaining wall is a great way to neatly separate spaces in your yard, and provides a clean look to your property.
  2. Get decorative with your architectural features.
    Whether it’s adding a new mailbox or a planted window box, feel free to add splashes of color by painting your add-ons. Just be sure that the colors are in line with the overall feel of your home.
  3. Keep your lawn looking good.
    This is highly important to demonstrating the amount of care you show your property. If you simply don’t have the time and equipment for keeping your lawn looking good, it makes perfect sense to use the skills and expertise of a San Diego landscaping provider.
  4. Select the right trees.
    Trees are one of the smartest investments you can make to you property, but you need to be smart with your selection and placement. Remember, trees that planted too close to your home can easily extend their roots underneath your property, and cause significant damage to your foundation.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
