Even if you don't think about the financial benefits of your home's landscaping on a regular basis, it can make a significant impact to the value of your home. Nearly 90% of real estate agents encourage homeowners to invest in landscaping prior to selling because of how much it can improve a home's overall resale value. If you're going to be updating your landscape or renovating your lawn with the help of a lawn care company, what fixes and additions will pay off the most? Consider these options that offer a positive return on investment.
Improved Outdoor Landscape Lighting
While your curb appeal might be apparent during the daytime, you also want your property to stand out after the sun goes down. A well-lit home and landscape design shows off your gorgeous exterior. If your outdoor lighting doesn't artfully highlight your home as compared to the rest of the block, you might want to consider improving your outdoor lighting while you update the rest of your landscaping.
Patios and Decks
If you've got enough space in either your back or front yard and are willing to sacrifice a bit of greenery, a patio, deck or porch can give you an additional space for entertaining or just enjoying the weather. Patios and decks can be great for impressing guests but do require a bit more maintenance, so make sure you're up for the task when you start planning this exterior add-on.
Flower Beds and Gardening Space
For those who have a green thumb, there's never enough space in a yard for gardening. However, flower beds and gardening space are more than just a reason for gardening enthusiasts to spend time outdoors; they can beautify your yard as a vibrant addition to your carefully cultivated lawn. Use these areas to give your property a bit of extra color and contrast that will enhance an already appealing landscape.
Lawn Irrigation Systems
While you may not see much of a lawn irrigation system, this hidden helper can do wonders for the health, appearance and added value of your outdoor living space. Lawn irrigation systems keep your yard green and gorgeous, and water-smart irrigation systems can help you cut down on your utility bills. There are even special watering zones designed specifically for your planting beds, reducing your watering chores.
The right outdoor living spaces updates can increase your home's value and improve your curb appeal. For more information on lawn care, irrigation system installation and landscape lighting, along with lawn replacements and drainage improvements, contact Bio Green Outdoor Services today.
