We harp a lot on GreenPal about how landscaping can improve the value of your home. And can you blame us? We are a lawn care company. It’s what we do. And the reality is, so many people overlook this essential truth. Landscaping offers one of the highest returns on investment there is. Nearly 150% in many cases. So which improvements should you focus on? This infographic explains. 

How much should I spend on my landscaping?

Most professionals agree that you should spend about 5% of your home's total value on your landscaping. For example, if you live in a home that is worth $150,000, you should consider investing $7,500 into creating low-maintenance landscaping for your home. 

Should I invest in the outdoor architecture of my home?

While installing a new deck might improve your curb appeal and make your home easier to sell. It offers a 77% return on investment. The same goes for many outdoor architectural installations. Consider adding one to improve your home's value, and increase the chances of it selling. 

Should I invest in renovating my landscape?

Landscaping can improve the value of your home by up to 12%. Which is quite an improvement. For example, a home that is worth $150,000, may now be worth $18,000 more with a good renovation. 

What is the process of getting my landscape renovated?

You will want to discuss the scope of work with a designer, along with your budget. You will also want to discuss features such as outdoor kitchens, patios, and decks. Your landscape designer should be able to accommodate your budget and meet your expectations. Your designer should be willing to do an on-site analysis to establish the best placement for all of your new landscaping. Finally, they will present you with a plan for final approval.
