Tip 1: Plant a tree.
Not only do trees look nice, but if they shade your home, they can cut cooling costs by as much as 40 percent. Plus, a strong native tree provides a necessary habitat for wildlife.
Tip 2: Low-maintenance landscaping saves you money now, adds value when you sell.
Not only does shrubbery and colorful plants make your home look great, but native plants will lower your energy bills. Purchase plants what are native to your region, or drought-tolerant plants, that require less water and maintenance. Modern homeowners want yards that are attractive but also good for the planet.
Tip 3: Upgrade your lawn
Replace your existing lawn with fresh new sod. Or, add new drought-resistance landscaping. Either way, a fresh and well-manicured front yard will do wonders for your home’s value.
Tip 3: Add the right landscaping and watch your home’s value grow.
Call in the professionals for the best bang for your buck. A landscape designer can create a plan that will make your home’s exterior really shine. For maximum impact, plant mature trees or fast growing varieties; these can be pricey but they will instantly make your home feel more established. As your landscaping grows, so will your home’s curb appeal and value.
