We can all agree that landscaping is a key to a home’s “curb appeal”. Summer landscaping changes can be an excellent way to add value to your home. It is natural for homeowners to use landscaping as a way to add value and aesthetic appeal to the home, but it is important to use time, energy and money in ways that truly maximize value for the home. Broward Landscape would like to show you some tips to add value and appeal to your home with landscaping.
But please keep in mind, that too much landscaping can actually be seen as a problem for prospective home buyers who may not want to spend the majority of their summer on upkeep. An overly elaborate flower garden may catch the eye of particular home buyers, but not everyone will be enthused about the maintenance, cost, and man-hours it will require. If you want to add value to your home try some simple, relatively inexpensive ways to do so through landscaping.
Flowers and Trees
It may seem obvious, but of course, the appeal of your front yard will be an eye-catching landscaping device. Flowers are affordable and make a dramatic change. Make sure that you time flowering plants around when you stage your home for sale, so everything is looking its best and in full bloom. Trees have excellent aesthetic value. They also help keep home energy costs down in the winter and summer with their shade and wind-breaking ability.
Edging and Mulch
Sometimes it pays off to keep it simple and focus on lawn care and upkeep. It really makes all the difference in the yard’s appearance. A lush, well-groomed lawn with no weeds and a neatly trimmed edge can give the whole yard a quick facelift. Add some mulch in the yard to highlight the flower beds and well-trimmed and edged lawns. This is simple and budget-friendly and even helps keep weeds out of the flower beds.
Building Features in the Yard
Adding features to the yard can have a big payoff for the value of your home and its overall appearance. Whether you go for a frugal retaining wall or go crazy with a patio, deck, terrace or pergola, all of these will help in adding to that payoff. Also a re-done driveway can make a big difference if it is necessary.
These are just some simple ways that you can dramatically add value & appeal to your home.
