Landscaping Upgrades that Will Add Resale Value

If you are planning to sell your home in the year ahead, then it is likely that you have started making changes and looking at your home through the eyes of a buyer. Consequently, upgrades such as new paint, flooring and an assortment of other actions have been taken. However, with all the interior upgrades, don’t overlook one of the most important features of your home – your landscape.

The reality is that in the majority of cases, if the outside of your home isn’t inviting, then most buyers will bypass the house. In fact, studies show that having a great looking yard can improve your home’s property value by as much as 20%. So, if you are eager to get the most resale value out of your home -even if you don’t plan on listing for several months, now is the time to start making those landscaping upgrades.

5 Landscaping Upgrades that Add Resale Value

There is more to making landscaping upgrades than merely planting grass or adding in a few shrubs. Here are some proven changes to make when you are looking to add real estate value.

·      Pruning – Trees and shrubbery that have been allowed to grow wildly or are in need of pruning and trimming make a home look unwelcoming and uninviting. Take time to trim these features back. If you are unsure of your skill, talk to one of our landscaping specialists.

·      Eliminating – Do you have plants that are withering and dying? Then now is the time to get rid of them. An unkempt garden often implies that other areas of the home have not been maintained as well.

·      Replacing – Once you have removed plants that are not thriving, it is important to replace them with plants and flowers that add color and texture. You may opt to keep it simple with low maintenance choices such as shrubbery and trees or take it to the next level and include an assortment of flower gardens. Either route is a great way to add value and beauty.

·      Plant Trees – According to the US Department of Energy adding a few as three trees in locations where they add shade, can help cut energy costs by as much as $250 a year. This makes a great selling point as well as adding beauty when you are selling your home.

·      Design Elements – A walkway with brightly colored flowers or the addition of a deck or covered patio can go a long way towards making your home more inviting to potential buyers. Other great features to consider are water elements, curving garden paths, decorative retaining walls, or even structures such as pergolas, gazebos and other outdoor “rooms”.

By making simple upgrades to your landscape, you can increase the speed at which your home sells while adding value, beauty and even functionality.

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

    Christy A. Sandy Springs, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”
