Even if you do not plan to sell your home anytime soon, you likely want your home to have curb appeal. Professional landscaping work can help ensure your home is both valuable and unique to you and your family. Plants or landscape lighting adds beauty to your property. Also, hardscaping designs are functional and financially beneficial. Hardscaping is one of the great options if you want to enhance your outdoor living space. Things like fences, decks, patios, outdoor kitchens, fountains, and ponds make your backyard stand out and are relaxing and fun.
Add Trees and Plants to Increase Property Value
Adding plants or shrubbery to your backyard increases the aesthetics and functionality of your home, therefore increasing its value. Try to find plants that grow yearly, called perennials, instead of spending money on annual plants. Perennials and trees continue to get larger and fuller over time if taken care of properly, which helps you in the long run if you decide to sell your home.
Light Up Your Home
Outdoor landscape lights are a popular hardscaping feature that requires little work and time to install. By strategically placing lights, you show off your home’s charming features and make it safer. Additionally, landscape lighting makes yards and walkways more navigable, which reduces the chances of slips or accidents. It also works as a deterrent to potential intruders and thieves.
A patio adds value to a home by adding more outdoor living space for entertaining guests. Patios also make your backyard more comfortable while indirectly providing much value for your home. Homeowners can turn their patios into an area to spend time with family and friends.
Also, patios are highly sought after in the housing market, so they can be a valuable selling point. Think about how you can create the best patio for your home, like installing a fire pit or planting a garden nearby.
Add Value Now (and Later)
You can enjoy improvements to your property immediately, and you don’t have to sell your home to justify a new hardscape or landscape project. Consider what value you’ll get out of your property now as well as what returns you may see in the future. Here are a few ways that hardscape and landscape improvements add value now in addition to providing future returns:
- Energy savings
- Increased outdoor living space
- Enhance your home’s curb appeal
- Use less water
- Greater functionality at your home
