How Does Landscaping Increase Your Property Value? lehnhoff's supply

Here are a few reasons why landscaping increases your property value.

There are numerous benefits of landscaping your property. Landscaping adds beauty to your home’s exterior, improves air quality, and creates functional outdoor spaces. A well-maintained and designed landscape can dramatically boost your property’s resale value. Here are a few reasons why landscaping increases your property value and how Lehnhoff’s Supply can help you enhance your property to maximize its value.

Landscaping Boosts Curb Appeal

When potential buyers look at homes online or drive through the neighborhood looking for “For Sale” signs, they naturally prefer homes with beautiful landscaping. 

Brown or patchy grass and shriveled-looking plants and trees turn potential buyers away from visiting an open house or making an offer. A well-maintained landscape will instantly improve your home’s curb appeal and establish it as the house to beat.

Which Landscaping Projects Improve Property Value?

In general, professional landscaping can significantly boost your home’s value. However, not all landscaping projects are created equal in terms of getting a good return on investment.

As a rule of thumb, landscaping features that make a big impact but don’t require much maintenance will boost your home’s value the most. For example, if you enjoy growing fruits and vegetables, you may love planting an edible garden. However, growing food is a commitment, and unless your potential buyer shares your love of gardening, they may see a vegetable garden as a hindrance rather than a benefit. Here are a few landscaping projects buyers love.

Adding a Patio or Paver Walkway

Installing a new patio, pathway, driveway, or other hardscape can greatly affect property value. So can replacing old concrete hardscapes with elegant paving stones! At Lehnhoff’s Supply, we have every paving feature you can think of, from backyard patios to stone walkways to retaining walls. A simple patio can increase your home’s sale price by 10% or more and offer an ROI of over 80%.

Installing Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting has many benefits. A professionally installed outdoor lighting system can improve the functionality of your outdoor living spaces, highlight landscaping and home architecture, improve safety, and add an upscale and luxurious feel. You can expect a significant ROI depending on the type of lighting and how much space you need to illuminate.

Plant Trees and Flowers

Buyers love mature trees and gardens. Large trees look elegant and add character to your home’s exterior. They also provide shade, improve air quality, attract birds and wildlife, and keep your home cool in the summer months. Planting native trees and plants in your front yard can increase resale value, and it is a relatively inexpensive project.
