If you’re looking to place your home up for sale in the near future, you should consider updating your landscaping, from the plants that surround your home to the way that you have structured your outdoor gathering spaces. Updating your landscaping can be hugely beneficial, as it greatly increases the curb value of your home and can even bump up the final selling price up to 14% higher than what it otherwise would likely have been. For many people, the additional effort and money spent on updating landscaping can have a final return on investment that is sometimes as high as 200% – and typically doesn’t drop too far below a 100% return on investment at the very least.
The proper landscaping design can even help a home to sell much more quickly than would otherwise have been possible. Recently gathered data even shows that a home with updated outdoor spaces and landscaping features will actually sell up to six weeks more quickly than a home that has not implemented beautiful landscaping at the time that the home is placed on the market and up for sale. There is no doubting the fact that this is hugely beneficial for many a person, many a family, looking to sell their current home.
Of course, there are many elements of landscaping design that can be considered, and you might find it easiest to consult with one of the professional landscaping companies in your area before making a final decision of what elements of your outdoor spaces you want to update or even change completely (or add onto, as the case might be). A local landscaping company is likely to recommend planting trees on the property, though the types of trees that are available will likely vary from region to region.
But the addition of trees to just about any property here in the United States can be ideal for a number of different reasons. Of course, trees can add to the aforementioned curb appeal of any given home, providing greenery and interesting elements of design to a yard or outdoor space that was initially quite bland and monotonous. But trees have so many other benefits that are important not to gloss over.
For instance, planting trees can help to reduce the overall noise pollution of the property. In fact, data has shown that fully grown, mature trees, when planted quite densely, can reduce the overall noise contamination that a household experiences by as much has 50%, which is certainly quite considerable by just about any means. And in addition to this, trees can add a good deal of pleasant noises to any given property, from the rustling of wind in the branches and leaves to even the tweeting of birds and their songs during the spring and summer months. Therefore, trees have always been a critical part of landscaping and landscape design here in the United States.
Trees can actually also help with overall energy conservation as well, particularly during the summer months. For instance, trees, when they are fully grown and able to shade the house in question, can actually reduce heating costs by sometimes as much as 50% during the summer months. And while not all homes will see savings of as much has 50%, savings typically tend to be of at least 15% and not any lower than that – and very often higher, if even just by a little bit.
At the end of the day, updating your landscaping can be hugely beneficial if you’re looking to sell your home in the coming months. However, updating your landscaping can even make it easier for you and the rest of your household to enjoy your outdoor spaces as well, from updating landscaping for entertainment purposes to updating your landscaping for simply enjoying the long summers days and the short summer nights. For many people, no matter what, landscaping updates and overhauls are more than worth it at the end of the day, no matter where they might live here or all throughout the United States.
