When a prospective buyer visits a house, the landscaping is the first thing they see. If a home has aesthetically pleasing and eye-catching landscaping, buyers will almost instantly perceive it as more valuable. So, if you are selling your Dallas, TX home, improving the landscaping should be one of your very first projects. However, figuring out where to start can certainly be a challenge. Fortunately, CGreens Landscape Management has been helping Dallas, TX homeowners improve their landscaping since 1980! Here are a few of the features that we know will increase your home’s value in 2021.
Anyone who lives in Dallas, TX knows that our summers get brutally hot. That is why having large, shade-providing trees will instantly add value to your home. Not only do they make spending time outside a little more bearable, but they also have an impact on your home’s energy-efficiency. They will keep your home cooler in the summer and block the wind in the winter, keeping your HVAC system from working as hard.
Lush, Green Lawns
A recent study asked what homebuyers were looking for when selecting a home, and a beautiful yard was the most requested trait, second only to a renovated kitchen. Other studies have shown that well-maintained Dallas, TX landscaping that includes the proper grass can increase property values by nearly 20%. Our main point being, beautiful grass is essential. Not only does it look nice, but it even absorbs noise and reduces glare.
Multi-use areas such as patios, pet-spaces, or outdoor kitchens are HUGE right now. Built-out patios are so sought-after, they are sometimes considered extra rooms. For many buyers, an outdoor space where they can relax or entertain is incredibly valuable. Clever landscaping that draws attention to your beautiful pool or outdoor kitchen is the perfect way to ensure buyers see the added value in your beautiful home.
Not only do native plants require significantly less effort to maintain than foreign ones, but they are also great for the environment. While buyers are looking for beautiful yards, they are not looking for yards that require a lot of effort to maintain. Since native plants are already adapted to the climate, they do not require much water or attention.
Even the non-living elements of your yard will add extra value. We already talked about patios and kitchens, but things as simple as a stone walkway will add value. A cobblestone walkway will differentiate your home from others in your neighborhood rather than a concrete one. An excellent privacy fence will also add value. Stained privacy fences that incorporate some stonework are very popular right now.
