We all have heard that landscaping has a great return on investment. But how much can you expect to receive from your investment when you work on your landscape. And what tasks are worth the most? Let’s dive in and take a look. 

How much can landscaping impact the value of my home?

It’s hard to come up with a fixed number, but your landscaping can ad up to 14% to the value of your home. But it’s not just about the value of your home. A tidy landscape can also improve the curb appeal of your home, which may make it more likely to sell. 

How much should I spend on landscaping?

According to this infographic, spending as little as 5% of your home's value on low-maintenance landscaping can result in a 15% increase in your home’s resale value. This means the total ROI of your landscaping is 150%.

Can landscaping save me money on my energy bill?

Yes. Did you know that properly placing your landscaping can help you reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%? In the summer full-grown trees can shade your home. Furthermore, vegetation reduces heat too. In fact, just the front lawn of 8 homes can provide the cooling effect of 70 tons of AC. 

How much is a tree worth?

A mature tree can be worth between $1,000 and $10,000. Depending on the tree's placement, the species of the tree, and the region of the country you live in. Trees can also help clean up the air by drawing in Co2 and cutting down on dust, smoke, and other pollutants in the air.
