How Landscaping Can Increase Your Property’s Value

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Tuesday, 10 November , 2015

The Appraisal Institute states that good landscaping can increase a home’s value as well as help sell a property faster. With proper landscaping you can:

  • Increase curb appeal which will entice buyers to check out the inside of the home
  • Help your home stand out from others in your neighborhood
  • Add more functionality to your backyard
  • Add another selling point to your home, particularly with low-maintenance, functional landscaping

When you want to increase your home’s value and its potential appeal to buyers, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, keep it simple. While improving your landscaping is important, you do not have to go overboard. If there is too much diversity or too many features, potential buyers may think there is too much maintenance involved. Take a minimalistic approach to landscaping, adding a few shrubs here and there to fill in large blank spaces. However, if you are not planning on selling your home, make your landscaping as unique and diverse as you like!

Second, one of the best things you can do is keep plant growth in check. Eliminate all obstructions, like overgrown bushes, that block windows. Not only will this show off your beautiful home, but it will allow more sunlight into the home.

Finally, be sure to use the best quality plants, hardscapes and other features you can afford. Paying a little more for good quality will save you money in the long run.

    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
