Investing in landscaping is a great way to increase a home’s value. According to the American Society of Landscape Architects, a landscape that is pleasing to the eye, user friendly, and highlights features of the home itself, can increase your home’s value from 5% to 20%. When homes don’t have much in place of landscaping, a simple install of flowering bushes or shrubs can make a huge difference. 

Light Up the Night

Curb appeal is a feature that speaks volumes to potential investors or home buyers. While landscaping is a part of curb appeal, there are other elements that you may want to consider as well. Simply updating outdoor lighting systems can improve upon curb appeal after dark and add additional value with upgraded security. Outdoor lighting can illuminate the front of a home or light up a walking path. 

Shutters and Doors

A fresh coat of paint often does wonders. However, much to contrary thoughts, you don’t have to go broke repainting the entire outdoor structure of your home. Sometimes, simply uninstalling shutters and giving them a fresh coat of paint will add a quick and easy facelift. Don’t forget to touch up the front door, windows, and garage door while your at it.
