Have you ever wondered, “Does landscaping increase property value?” you’re not alone. This is a common question for homeowners who are currently looking to sell their homes or increase the potential on their resale in the future. The short answer is yes, but it depends on what kind of projects you invest in and the overall market conditions.
In general, to increase your property value with landscaping projects you need high-quality features and finishes that are in demand from homeowners. When considering the many different kinds of projects you can take on for your home, you’ll want to keep this in mind as you plan out specific ones that will add the most value to your landscape. The following are some of our top high value project ideas to help get you started.
High Value Projects for Your Landscape
Here are some of the most popular projects you can choose from to help increase your home’s value:
Outdoor Kitchen Islands
The kitchen is the most critical area in the home to many buyers and having an outdoor kitchen will push your home to the top of many buyer’s lists. Islands are just as popular in the outdoor kitchen as they are in the indoor kitchen.
For your outdoor kitchen island, consider using natural stone to help the kitchen space blend in with the rest of your yard. The stone can have a smooth, modern surface, or a rough, natural one. Whichever you choose, the top of the island will be smooth and functional, providing an eye-catching area for other homeowners to imagine hosting their gatherings.
Why add a pathway between different parts of the yard or garden? Interlocking pathways give your yard more structure and make each element feel connected. Interlocking is much more beautiful than a dirt path and easier to maintain.
Plus, if retirees might be considering buying your home, they’ll see the value in an interlocking stone pathway. It can allow them to continue to access the backyard and garden, even if they need a cane or a walker down the road.
Fire Features and Fire Tables
You’ve heard of fire pits, but what is a fire feature? It’s an outdoor fireplace that isn’t your traditional fireplace or fire pit. We offer long tables that heat up quickly to warm everyone at the party. These are elegant, luxury features that some buyers will pay more for.
For more intimate moments, we even offer small fire features that fit between two comfortable chairs. These make for a romantic evening and many of your potential buyers are likely to think so too.
