The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recommend that homeowners invest 10 percent of a home’s value in landscaping. If a homeowner is looking for a way to increase the value of their home but have run out of ideas for the inside, looking to the exterior may be the answer. Home improvement loans can assist in funding either small or large projects.
A homeowners landscaping is the first impression, and can endear neighbors and potential buyers to the property when it goes on sale. On average, a good landscaping design can add up to 20 percent to a home’s value, according to BobVila.com.
Plants, pools, terraces, decks, porches, trees, bushes, stone work, lighting, sprinklers and other décor accents are all potential places a homeowner can invest in on their land. When determining which project is for them, an individual may wish to consider hiring a professional contractor for the project to increase the likelihood of achieving quality.
Landscaping is a potential investment that may just make a property stand out from the rest.
