How Good Landscaping Can Add Value to Your Home

Attractive, unique landscaping adds substantial curb appeal to an otherwise ordinary home. We’ve all noticed houses that stand out on the block due to beautifully sculpted hedges, ornate stonework, and well-tended flowerbeds. If you’re toying with the idea of a major landscaping project on your property, consider the fact that curb appeal has major financial implications as well. Simply put, high-quality landscaping work increases the value of your home, ensuring you a return on your investment. In Waukesha and Milwaukee, there’s no better landscaping partner than Central Services.

It can be said that quality landscaping work pays for itself. In today’s housing market, buyers are looking for move-in-ready homes that have been well cared for. They’re interested in homes that won’t require a large amount of additional work or investment after the sale. Most homebuyers are more excited about touring a home that looks inviting on the outside than one that is sad and dreary, unless they are focused on buying a fixer-upper. For these reasons, homes that present a finished look and exhibit careful maintenance by the current owners sell faster and at a higher price than the competition.

How much investment is necessary, and what is the return that can be expected? It’s not easy to quantify, but the success stories are plentiful. A quick search online will show you numbers ranging from a 100 to 1000 percent ROI on landscaping work. Further digging will show a range of 5 to 20 percent increase in the value of your home from landscaping work. One story even showed a homeowner that invested $20,000 in landscaping work and was able to sell their home for $200,000 more than they had paid for it just a year prior. This is certainly an outlier, but it shows that substantial value can be earned by adding landscaping to your property.
