If you have recently felt like your luxury residential property is lacking in the outdoor area, you may already know you are in need of some landscaping work. However, this is not as easy as it seems, as a complete landscaping overhaul can seem intimidating. While it is true that there is a lot that goes into improving the landscape of a residential property, you can let your landscape provider take care of it. All you need to do is understand the benefits of working with a landscaper, or engaging in landscaping this next year. It may be too cold now, but now is the time to decide your desires for 2022. Here are just four of the many ways landscaping can improve your residential property.
Increased Curb Appeal
While curb appeal may seem like a buzzword straight off of HGTV, curb appeal is important to more than just those looking to sell their homes this year. Curb appeal simply refers to the appeal of your property on the outside, and as the first outdoor impression is your landscape, this is where curb appeal is generated. Your outdoor landscape should provide you a sense of pride and satisfaction, knowing how great your property looks to all of your jealous neighbors. Additionally, should you ever try to sell your home, it will be that much more appealing to a potential buyer.
Increased Property Value
Right in line with the improvement of your curb appeal, you need to view your landscape as an amenity. Things like outdoor patios and lush lawns are amenities for potential buyers, and thus are accounted for in the estimated price. Landscaping is almost always ROI positive, as the increase in your property value after Dream Greener has taken care of you, will likely be much more than your capital investment. Always looking to increase the value of your own assets, you should be attempting to do the same with your home, through the avenue of landscaping.
Landscape Sustainability: Contribute to the Environment
Adding to your landscape can do more than just improve the look of your property, it can functionally improve the local environment for flora and fauna. One of the most popular trends in 2021, it looks like it is here to stay in 2022. Landscape sustainability is centered around the use of native plant material and conservation practices to assist in improving the environment. Similarly, things like replacing turf with hardscape can fall into this category, as hardscape requires less maintenance and resource use to upkeep. Low maintenance is the name of the game, as the less resources required to maintain your landscape, the better for the environment. Not to mention that native plant material will attract local wildlife, and butterflies would surely brighten your property.
Improved Quality of Life
Our favorite benefit of landscaping your property directly benefits you and your family. It is well established that when your outdoor areas are better-taken care of, your quality of life will increase. If you install an outdoor common area, there is no doubt you will love the ability to host friends and family on a nice summer evening. Furthermore, a healthy lawn is great for children and dogs to play in, and pretty flowers make everyone feel better.
