Here’s why good landscaping can increase property value


Whether it’s a residential or commercial property, improving its value is a target for any property owner. There are many ways this can be done and improvements or refurbishments can often increase a properties value by much more than the cost to carry out the works.

One such way to improve a properties overall value is through landscaping, which is the best way to highlight a property’s curb appeal and ensure a good first impression. Landscaping comes in two forms, hard and soft. Soft landscaping includes all of your greenery – lawns, flowers, shrubbery etc. Hard landscaping includes flagging, tarmac, gravel etc.

Landscaping is often overlooked on many properties, leading to lost potential value that could have paid dividends during a sale. No matter which way you look at it, first impressions count. Your property could be perfect on the inside, but if it looks a mess on the outside potential buyers will struggle to see past that.

Renovations need not be costly either, it’s possible to neaten things up and make sure everything looks fresh without incurring expensive costs. In fact, you would be amazed at how much a neaten up, some fresh tarmac or a new lawn can dramatically improve a property value when compared with comparably small costs of carrying out the works.
