Adding Appeal and Value to Your Home Through Landscaping & Lawn Care

Adding Appeal and Value to Your Home Through Landscaping & Lawn Care

When one thinks about home improvements, kitchen and bath remodels are often the first things to come to mind. The problem? Kitchen and bath remodels can be EXPENSIVE! You can easily pour $10,000, $20,000, $30,000 or more into kitchen and bath remodels. But what if you want to upgrade your living space without busting the budget?

How about upgrading the exterior of your home? Here are some of the ways landscaping and lawn care can add both appeal and value to your home.

Upgrades Provide Big Value

You may be surprised to how big a difference several hundred dollars in trees, bushes and flowers can make in your yard. Add some pavers, edging and mulch, and you can make a significant difference while staying on budget.

You Can DIY

Perhaps, unlike a major kitchen or bath upgrade, you may be able to do much of the outside work yourself. Buy some landscaping magazines, get some advice from your local greenhouse and spend some time on the internet getting ideas and expanding your knowledge. You may impress yourself with what you can accomplish on your own.

You Likely Have the Tools

You won’t need any specialized or expensive tools. You probably already have the major tools needed to perform yard and landscaping work. Outdoor yard work and landscaping will also provide access to some fresh air and exercise.

Landscaping can Expand Your Living Space

Backyard landscaping, in particular, can make that space more enjoyable and livable. Some bushes and flowers combined with a small deck, a patio set or fire pit is almost like adding a room! Inexpensive lighting products allows you to use that space into the evening.

Even a Good Trimming Will Help!

If you don’t want to spend much money, commit to a bush trimming, grass edging, fertilization, and mulching project. This alone can make a remarkable difference on its own.

Preserving, improving, and protecting your property is part of being a homeowner. This includes making sure you have sufficient home insurance.
