4 Reasons to Invest in Landscaping for Your Home



Whether you are planning to stay in your home for the long run or considering a move, making the investment in your outdoor space is well worth the expense. From a business perspective, it can add to the value of your home; along with that, the aesthetic and comfort factor are hard to beat. Creating a functional, comfortable landscape pays off, in a number of ways.

1. It adds value to your home.

Spending as little as 5 percent of your home’s value on landscaping may get a return on your investment of as much as 150 percent!

2. It creates a place for family and friends to bond. 

A beautiful landscape, with seating areas and comfortable spaces to entertain and gather, gives family and friends a place to create memories. Outdoor living spaces can be great for parties and celebrations.

3. It adds more curb appeal.

An inviting front entrance adds value to potential buyers, as well as friends and family.

How to: Plantings can bring lots of color and dimension to the front porch and entrance; re-sodding the front yard can give the home a fresh, clean look, and simply painting your house can update the façade from tired-looking to new.

4. It creates more livable space for your home.

Add to your living area with an outdoor patio, kitchen, or summer family gathering area. Usable outdoor space gives a fresh perspective from the indoor living areas, allows for fresh, creative decorating ideas, and adds square footage for entertaining.
