Front Yard Projects Increase the value of your home with beautiful front yard
“If you have ever bought or sold a home, you are probably well aware that curb appeal — that wow factor that makes your heart beat faster when you espy a home — is vital. But did you know that beyond creating desire, excellent front landscaping actually increases your home’s value? Yes, those blooming hydrangeas, the spiffy front door and the snazzy stone walkway you invest in can produce a solid return on your money.
There are three main ways to improve your outdoor experience and in doing so, add value to your home: curb appeal, decking and hardscaping. Flowers, trees and shrubs do increase property value if they make your home more appealing, so choose a landscape design that is impressive, attractive and, very important, easy to maintain. The caveat is that front yard designs such as decking and hardscaping need to be well designed, well executed and, like gardens, low maintenance. That is why a professional such as a landscape architect or landscape designer should be called in.” National Post
