Hardscaping is any structure or hard materials that are part of your property’s landscape. A beautiful patio, a spacious deck, and lovely water features will grab the attention of prospective owners. Homes with good curb appeal also tend to sell more quickly, which can be an attractive quality if you decide to sell your home. A home project you enjoy every day that will increase your home’s resale value is a terrific two-for-one deal. Keep reading to learn more about increasing your property value with hardscaping features.
Provides Safety and Privacy
Retaining walls add privacy and protection against the elements, and energy-efficient landscape lighting can be installed alongside patios, walkways, driveways, and under retaining-wall caps for nighttime ambiance and functionality. Your landscape professionals can advise you on adding these and other hardscape elements to increase value and improve safety and privacy.
Boosts Curb Appeal
If you plan to sell your home, your real estate agent will suggest that the first impression is paramount when preparing your property for sale. Simple updates such as adding a stone patio or installing a water feature next to your garden can add curb appeal. These projects increase your home’s value, plus there is the enjoyment factor of adding a beautiful, functional landscape. Hardscaping also makes routine maintenance easier; for example, paving a walkway in your yard reduces the need for trimming after mowing.
Property damage can devalue your home plus cause significant repair bills. Retaining wall systems are essential in preventing erosion, controlling grade changes in the yard, and preventing damage to the landscape and to your home. When selling your home, the last thing you want is to realize the ground is eroding away from your property. Retaining walls and other hardscaping elements help to retain the soil excavated after creating an outdoor living space.
Investing in your home’s landscape with hardscaping has long-term benefits, whether you are staying in your home or preparing it for sale. If you are ready to start upgrading your property, reach out to the professionals at Carroll Landscaping today!
