Landscaping is a cost-effective, convenient, and quick way to increase property value. Upgrading a home can be costly. Luckily, hiring a professional landscaping company is relatively affordable compared to other home improvements. Today we’ll be sharing some landscaping techniques that can help to increase your home’s value.
Cohesive Landscaping is Key
Cohesive landscaping means that you want a landscape that integrates seamlessly with the style of your home. For example, if you own a modern house, you may want to consider a lot of greenery with natural-looking beds that perfectly fit your home’s contours. A Japanese garden is beautiful, but it may not complement each type of home’s aesthetic.
Strategic Landscaping 101
Landscapes that increase property value tend to be low-maintenance. However, a lawn with only grass doesn’t add to the curb appeal of your home. The Virginia Tech Department of Horticulture found that landscapes need excellent foundation plantings and should have points of interest. Design sophistication, according to this study, increases property value by 42%. Other factors that increase property value are plant size and diversity of plant material type. The researchers of this study also concluded that curb appeal helps differentiate similar-looking properties from each other. So, in a nutshell, what you can gain from all of this is that a landscape works well when it has visual interest based on plant diversity and isn’t full of high-maintenance plantings.
Trees Are An Advantageous Addition to Any Home
Two weeks ago, we discussed how much trees benefit landscapes. Today, we’ll address them again as it relates to this perspective. Trees are valuable to a home because they remove carbon dioxide and pollution from the air. Even one planted tree makes a world of difference. Trees provide shade, cool down a residence, cut downs on air conditioning costs, and presents an Eco-Friendly option to homebuyers.
An Edged-Lawn is Exceptional and Low-Maintenance
Edging along your home shows prospective buyers just how much you care about your property. Also, what’s excellent for you is that edgings don’t require a lot of whipping and weeding. They are relatively convenient to maintain.
The main takeaway is that the condition of our landscapes says a lot about the way we feel about our homes. Strategic landscape design goes a long way and can take any home to the next level. Contact us today so that we can enhance your landscape in the best way.
