The Value of Landscaping
Are you tired of looking at your lawn, scraggly shrubs and a couple of leftover tulips from your last foray into “making the yard look better”? It’s time to think about a professional landscaper.
Good landscaping can increase the value of your home, sometimes up to 10 percent. For an average home in this area, that could mean an additional $40,000 in your pocket when you sell. Landscaping is not just adding flowers and another bush—don’t forget updated or replaced walks, walls and lighting. A pool, patio and waterfall are also considering landscaping.
How much you spent on landscaping depends on what you need, but an average cost for good landscaping is about 5 percent of the value of your home. So if you moved in a few years ago and paid $400,000, expect to pay about $20,000 to spruce up your yard.
Of course, if you’re adding a pool or other hardscape, your costs can be higher.
