Do Trees Add Value to Your Home
Did you know that towering trees on the property add more than just beauty to your home---they also increase the value of your home.
There have been several nationwide surveys recently that show mature trees in a well-landscaped yard can increase the value of your home by 7 to 19 percent. Having a lush green lawn with blooming flowers is pretty, but it doesn’t add value to the home.
Buyers love landscaping
According to the past president of the National Association of Realtors, buyers are looking for trees and privacy behind the home. A well-landscaped yard that has mature trees and bushes that also provide privacy fetch not only a higher price tag, but they also sell much more quickly than a house that has little to no landscape. Mature trees add the ultimate curb appeal before they even set foot into the house.
People are looking for big trees, rock walls, patios……..the entire feeling of serenity. People reconsider when a yard is neglected but the focus went into renovating kitchens and bathrooms. Having a beautiful landscaped yard can make the difference between breaking even on the home or actually making some money on the sale of your home.
Plan before you plant
A study done by Clemson University found that a homeowner will get 100% of more return on the money that they put into landscaping. A home with a bare lot needs to have landscaping done immediately---mainly because it takes 5 to 7 years for plants to mature. A professional landscaper will look at the property well before planting begins. Professional Remodel Help Mesa AZ
If you decide to go at landscaping alone, get advice from a local gardening shop before just planting. If you plant the wrong plant in the wrong location……the result will lead to overgrown plants that cover windows …..or a house that looks beautiful but the tree roots have begun to buckle the driveway.
