6 Landscaping Strategies To Boost Property Value

We talk frequently about the importance of using landscaping to improve your curb appeal, but did you know that landscaping can increase your home's value as well? Interior upgrades definitely have their time and place, but exterior upgrades can work wonders for your property value. Fran Campbell Team is here to help you improve your home's worth with these simple strategies.


6 Landscaping Strategies To Boost Your Home's Value

1. Plant Trees
Trees go a long way towards increasing the overall aesthetics of a property and, in turn, its value. Trees keep homes cool in the summer by providing shade, and they help keep them warm in the winter by serving as a wind barrier. Mature trees offer the best value, but every tree has to start small. It may take a while before you can fully reap the benefits, but that shouldn't stop you from planting a few trees today!

2. Plant Perennials
Perennials, unlike annuals, come back year after year. In addition to looking great in your flower beds, they'll save you a great deal of time, energy, and money since you won't have to re-plant them every year. They may even naturally spread to other areas in your yard. As you choose which plants to welcome into your yard, keep in mind that native plants tend to offer more of a financial return.

3. Add Outdoor Living Spaces
Outdoor living spaces are a great way to make your home seem bigger and maximize the beauty of the natural landscape around your home. Expanding your decks, installing outdoor patios, and building covered walkways can go a long way towards increasing the value of your home. Don't forget to outfit your spaces with outdoor furniture!

4. Accent With Outdoor Lighting
The possibilities outdoor lighting provides are practically endless. Depending on the techniques you use, you can create looks that go from wildly dramatic to endlessly comfortable. Light your yard to your heart's content - the trees, the bushes, the driveway, the walkways, etc. Lighting can also make your home safer, as it helps reduce the risk of anyone tripping and falling on your property.

5. Define Borders
Attractive fences and shrubs can be a great way to increase privacy and boost the value of your Lake of the Ozarks home. Mix and match between fences and shrubs to cut down on fencing costs and add interest to your property. In order to get the most bang for your fencing buck, however, be sure you use nice fencing - i.e., not chain link. 

6. Keep The Lawn Mowed
It doesn't matte how many thousands of dollars you have invested into landscaping; if you yard is tangled and overgrown, your curb appeal and home's value will plummet. Once you have designed your outdoor paradise, it's important to keep it nicely maintained. Most landscaping experts recommend keeping your grass under five or six inches tall.
