Improving your existing landscape or creating a whole new landscape will not only enhance the look of a property but also add value when refinancing or selling a home.
If you are looking to improve your landscape there are some key takeaways and benefits you should definitely consider to help make the decision a no-brainer.
Lets go through some of the benefits of investing in landscape design projects for your property and home.
The benefits of properly executed landscaping plans are:
Outdoor living space
Economic Benefits From Landscaping
Landscaping your property can increase the resale value of a property by as much as 15%.
A significant landscape project that can bring close to 12% increase in property value is the construction of a patio. Patios bring an aesthetic appeal along with a purpose.
Environmental Benefits Landscaping
It is a known fact that trees clean the air of pollutants which improves the quality of our air we breathe. Trees have many environmental benefits which we go into more detail in our blog posts "Importance and Value of Trees".
When planting trees, there are a select few that if properly and strategically planted can significantly absorb sounds waves and reduces noise pollution.
Improve Your Personal Health With Landscaping
Some studies have shown that when people are surrounded by nature like trees and flowers they significantly suffered less job stress and ended up feeling more satisfaction from their job.
To get more specific many people reported having fewer headaches and ailments than people that did not have a view of natural surroundings like trees and flowers.
Overall by being surrounded by trees and plants it caused an increase in positive feelings while feelings of fear and anger were reduced.
Create Outdoor Living Spaces
People enjoy being outside in the sunlight and enjoying time with family and friends. A landscaped patio can raise the value of a home by as much as 12.4%.
Landscape designs for your yard can encourage and provide much more opportunities for social interactions and family time. Picture a backyard patio where you can have an outdoor fireplace where your family and friends can sit around, roast marshmallows.
A key feature in a backyard landscape is a water feature. This does NOT mean a pool. Anything from a fountain to a small pond or even a hot tub would be more than enough. The reason being that you are creating an area in your backyard that is a comfortable place to sit, relax and take in the fresh air.
The benefits of landscaping can be maximized when you have a certified professional involved in all aspects of the landscape including the design, site prep, plant selection, and installation. This is where a Landscape Master Plan is highly recommended.
