Return on Your Investment – 3 Ways Landscaping Can Improve the Value of Your Home

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 26 July , 2015

We put everything we have into our homes, and everyone who owns one understands that the down payment, the monthly mortgage and the property taxes alone are not nearly enough to maximize the biggest investment many of us will ever make. We take enormous pride in where we live and we want to make sure that anyone who sees our home immediately understands that level of pride. That’s why we put in the work and the time to make the exterior portions of our property look as nice as possible. While upkeep and maintenance are obviously important, there is another level of work that can be done on many homes.

Many people rightfully treat their homes as not only a place to live and perhaps to raise a family, but also as an investment that needs an injection of capital from time to time to make sure that the value of it trends in a positive direction. This is done for many reasons, including the facts that we want to build equity in this investment and we want to be able to sell our homes for as much as possible should that day ever come when we decide to live somewhere else. However, these capital injections need to be done wisely, and below are three examples of landscaping work that can be done that will provide a strong return on the investment.

1) Trees
Trees are not only beautiful, but they are a sign of stability and they provide a look to a home that’s difficult to capture otherwise. In addition, many realtors have estimated that large trees on a residential lot can add thousands of dollars in value to that property.

2) Irrigation
People like to have plant life in their yards, they enjoy the idea of having a plush and green lawn and many people have gardens somewhere on the plot. Homeowners who install irrigation systems can rest assured that their plant life will be watered properly without having to spend much time on that chore.

3) Hardscape
Every home has some outdoor space that should be used for living, and hardscapes are the best way to accomplish this goal. Hardscapes provide opportunities to put furniture and barbecues outdoors and they add to the enjoyment and to the value of a property.

There are many other investments that can be made in a property that will provide a strong return on investment. However, every home is unique and every plot of land is set up differently to the point where the best way to go about adding to it is to scope out a plan that fits with that piece of land. While the instinct of investing in a home is a wise one, those who are in this position should seek the help of San Diego landscapers who have been handling this task successfully for many years. If you find yourself thinking about having this type of work done, contact Juniper Landscape Company today to learn more about this process.

    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
