Whether you are getting ready to sell or are merely thinking ahead, landscaping and hardscaping your property can add exponential value to your home if done properly. Today, we will share with you the top landscaping investments and hardscaping investments with the largest return on investment (ROI).
Top Landscaping Investments for ROI
One of the easiest and best investments you can make for a high ROI is maintaining a year-round yard. What does this mean? It means choosing plants, shrubs, and flowers that look good all year long rather than short-lived plants that look awful out of season. By always having bright and colorful landscaping, it also looks in top condition.
While trees can take a while to mature, they are an excellent long-term investment for your ROI. Trees provide shade, beauty, better air quality, and even fruit! In a world where sustainable living is becoming more prominent, people love the chance to have free fruit in their backyard.
Everyone loves water features as it adds a sense of serenity and beauty to a space. The addition of a pool, pond, fountain, or mini-waterfall is almost always good for ROI.
Outdoor kitchens allow homeowners to extend their home space and enjoy the outside with family, friends, and neighbors. By adding an outdoor kitchen complete with barbeque, prep space, bar and/or table, you will be the hit of the neighborhood and increase your ROI.
Landscaping lighting that accentuates the charming features of your home brings its beauty to life as well as adds functionality. Strategic light placement allows homeowners to highlight their most attractive landscape features while being able to traverse their outdoor space at night without fear of twisting an ankle.
People are busy, and watering an outdoor space by hand can be tedious. Additionally, traditional sprinkler systems often waste water and end up spraying water where you don’t want it. Built-in irrigation systems are an excellent investment as they allow for water conservation while keeping your space healthy with no work from you.
You have to get to the front door somehow, and nothing is better than a pretty path made of stone or brick lined with flowers. A stunning entrance can have a massive ROI as it is the first thing a potential buyer would see.
Anyone living in a space where they can use an outdoor shower, like here in Manhattan Beach, can earn a significant ROI. Outdoor showers are pleasurable, fun, and functional for any outdoor lover, parent, or pet owner.
Nobody enjoys a nosey neighbor, which is why privacy is essential. If you don’t have it already, fences or large shrubs blocking your property from others’ view are a fantastic investment.
Any addition that creates less work for a homeowner is always a quality ROI for you and for someone else later on. You simply have less to do (or pay someone else to do) by creating low-maintenance landscaping.
