Regular maintenance is a large part of keeping a home value up, however, an overall landscape upgrade can vastly improve the beauty and aesthetics and value of your home. Consider upgrades that add great ROI to your home like:

  • Installing a pathway
  • Adding stone planters
  • Installing new trees and shrubs
  • Adding a new paver patio or wooden deck
  • Installing landscape lighting
  • Installing a fire or a water feature

Adding an outdoor kitchen can make your home feel larger by extending living space outdoors and is another great resell addition.  A good rule to follow when considering what enhancements to add to your landscaping is: do not add any feature that you wouldn’t want or use in your yard, even if you are in the process of selling it. Chances are, if you wouldn’t want or use it, a potential buyer probably wouldn’t see much value in it either.

The ROI on Landscaping Features

Update Your Curb Appeal

Among the National Association of Realtors, 94% have suggested sellers improve their curb appeal before listing a home for sale. “Curb appeal is a major contributing factor when looking for houses, especially in the changing market.  When a buyer is looking at 3-5 homes in a day, the curb appeal will be the first thing that they see.  Many people say that the way a person cares for their yard is a clear depiction of how they care for the home as a whole,” says Colorado Springs realtor, Melissa Haddad. “By far, the most important part of the landscaping to pull in buyers and top dollar for a home should be the curb appeal.” Updating your curb appeal can be as simple as completing regular maintenance on your yard such as keeping the grass healthy and mowed or raking up fallen leaves and removing extra clutter from your outdoor spaces. Here are some landscape maintenance tips and small projects that can help you get your landscape in shape and your home ready to sell:
