Landscaping Investment: Add Value to Your Home with Improved Landscaping
Many exterior projects such as entry and garage door replacement, siding replacement, etc. can raise the value of your home. But landscaping is also a great investment. Landscaping can:
- Bring an increase to the value of your home
- Increase your home’s curb appeal
- Reduce the time a house stays on the market
According to the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), an investment of a five percent of the value of your home in landscaping can raise the value of a home by 15 percent and a generally accepted rule of thumb is to invest approximately 10 percent of the value of your property in landscaping.
