Have you been hesitant to have your home professionally landscaped because you think it’ll be too expensive or too much of a hassle? You’re not alone. Many people believe that professional landscaping is an unnecessary expense. In reality, it can give you an excellent return on your investment (ROI). Did you know that there is a chance by simply spending 5% of your home’s value on professional landscaping that your ROI could be up to 150%? Resale value on your home can also increase exponentially when you bring in a professional landscaper. Still think that professional landscaping isn’t worth your time or money? According to Allstate, nearly 90% of real estate agents recommend that homeowners spend the money on a professional landscaper – especially since it can mean your house will likely spend less time on the market.
So, now that you know that the ROI is worth your time, you need to know where to start!
Maximizing ROI on Professional Landscaping
- Find a Qualified Professional – While it may be easier to have your neighbor’s teenage son mow your lawn, it’s not going to help you get a good return on your investment. You need to make sure that you’re working with a professional. Talk to friends whose landscaping you admire and do some research online – be sure to check review sites as well as any social media that the company may have. It’ll give you a solid idea of how the landscaping company works with their clientele.
- Have a Plan – The best things don’t happen overnight. You may need a 5-year or even a 10-year plan to get your landscaping and hardscaping where you want it. Sit down with your professional landscaper to discuss what type of plan will get you the best ROI. Thinking ahead and planning for the future could help you significantly increase the value of your home. Plus, potential homebuyers can usually tell when you’ve taken consistently good care of your home and landscaping.
- Learn About Your Landscaping – Some people have time to take care of the big landscaping project that they’ve taken on; some don’t. If you have the extra time, make sure you talk to your landscaper about how to take care of your new plants. Make sure you only take on what you know you’re capable of doing. You should also keep in mind that you’ll need to have your landscaper come in at least a few times per year to make sure that everything is being properly maintained. Start a good relationship with your professional landscaper and you could see a great ROI.
