The True Value of Landscaping

For most people, their single biggest investment is their home. Homeowners know that a large part of your home is outside the house... your yard, pool area, patio, etc. and of course the area closely surrounding your dwelling itself...your landscaping. Landscaping is what gives your home "curb appeal" of course, but there is so much more to it than that.

Professionally designed and installed landscaping has a positive effect on the overall environmental health of your property. It can improve your drainage, help control insects and animals, stop weed infestation, and beautify your investment.

Consider adding a hardscape walkway or porch, a brick paver patio or poolscape, or adding stone or fresh mulch to your property and improving the visual appeal of your home while adding value and health to your property.

According to San Francisco's SFGATE News: "A well-landscaped home has a significant price advantage over a home with no landscaping. This advantage ranges from 5.5 percent to 12.7 percent depending on the type of landscaping and the home's original value. That translates into an extra $16,500 to $38,100 in value on a $300,000 home. There's more to landscaping than sticking some flowers and a couple shrubs in the ground, however. The number-one thing that buyers are looking for in landscaping is a manicured design."
