Backyard Ideas You Have To Try!

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 July , 2015

Home and Garden TV, better known as HGTV, shares a number of backyard tips that you can try to spruce up your property without breaking the bank. Their website offers suggestions from fire-pits to barbecue equipment as well as ideas for bringing together color schemes. Other suggestions include information on adding back decks, hot tubs, gazebos and even simple benches that add charm to the property.

Another backyard favorite of the folks at HGTV is back yard entertainment. These include big screen televisions, projectors and surround sound accompanied by a couple of rows of chairs, bringing the feeling of a drive-in movie to your house. A backyard bar is perfect to serve the “movie goers” refreshments, creating a great atmosphere for a summer get-together or even a Super Bowl party.

Children’s resources such as see-saws, treehouses and swing-sets are also a fun addition to your home. Some of the HGTV shows have shown incredible play areas incorporating the latest in playground technology for the children of the house.

Unfortunately, while all of these ideas are great, few homeowners have the budget to do everything they want to their homes. What ideas can you salvage from these shows that will be usable and will truly add long-lasting value to your property? The answer to that question lies in how much you want to spend and how much time you spend outdoors.

Landscaping and Hardscaping Are a Good Investment

Homeowners can add a much more pleasant atmosphere to their property with professional landscaping and hardscaping. These additions and renovations have been shown to significantly increase your home’s value as follows:

  • Landscaping may increase your property’s resale value by up to 14 percent
  • Patio landscaping can increase value by over 12 percent
  • Curb landscaping may increase home value by 4.4 percent
  • Hedges can add 3.6 percent to a property’s value

According to experts, you can earn a 150 percent ROI by spending five percent of your current home’s value on inexpensive but quality backyard upgrading; if your home is worth $100,000, and you spend $5,000, you can add $15,000 to your resale value to your property. Additionally, according to a study by the University of Michigan, a home with good landscaping is valued at more than 10 percent higher than an identical house without it.

You can also lower your current living costs by selecting the right trees and plants to place around your house. Deciduous trees lose their leaves in winter and grow full in summer. This provides your home shade in summer and sunlight in winter, lowering your heating and air conditioning bills respectively.

I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    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
