Did you know that digging in and putting a little effort into your backyard (depending on initial price and value of landscaping) can boost your property’s value by 5-20%?
- Attract Potential Buyers
A well-kept garden can play a huge factor in attracting prospective buyers. Real estate agent David Eastway has found that “landscaping has an emotional feel for a buyer. A nice manicured garden can make a great impression.”
- Prevent Soil Erosion
An unkempt garden can lead to a loss of soil in waterways. The most natural way to control erosion is to plant vegetation. A landscape with plants can build root systems that sustain the soil to prevent erosion.
