If you are thinking about selling your home, a well designed landscape can add value to your property and increase your likelihood of closing a sale. First impressions count, and great landscaping might be your way to stand out in a competitive housing market. Creating an outdoor living space increases usable space and adds function to an otherwise plain yard. Furthermore, while interior decor and design regularly go out of style, a well maintained landscape will grow fuller and more robust as the years go by.
When considering landscaping, it is important to time to access your property in its current state to find out what will be best for your property in the long run. What is the overall goal of the space? Do you require privacy from neighbors or a busy street? Does your lawn turn brown in the summer-time, no matter how much you water it? Would you like your outdoor space to be for entertaining or relaxing? These are all problems that can be solved by landscaping and will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Not having a coherent plan is the first mistake that many homeowners make when designing a landscape. A landscape that is assembled piece by piece can look disorganized, which turns buyers off. Working with an experienced landscaper will help you develop a plan and a timeline that will help you stay and track. A landscape designer will design with strategy in mind, keeping your home’s style and your budget in mind.
