Landscaping is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase the value of your home. Imagine that you are searching for a home, and you come across one that has overgrown bushes, vines growing up the siding, and a garden full of weeds. What do you think your initial impression would be? Now imagine you walk up to a home with one of the most beautifully installed landscapes you have ever seen. There is a magnificent garden full of fresh flowers and home grown veggies, and a yard that is so well kept, you’d think a baseball field manager lived there. What would your initial impression be about this home? The curb appeal of a home is paramount because the first impression people have when they drive up to a home is going to be everlasting. Additionally, most people assume that if the homeowners take care of the outside of the home, then must take care of the entire home.
Landscape installation services are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to increase your property’s curb appeal. If you have ever watched the show, Fixer Upper, on HGTV, then you know that one of the big things that Chip Gains does to every house is some form of landscaping. This helps to get the huge, “Wow!” at the end from Chip and Joanna’s clients. If you pay attention to other home shows, then you have probably realized that pool landscapes are a huge selling point for any home. Many people do not want to take the time and money to put a pool in their home, but if they can find a house within their budget that has a great pool and beautiful landscaping, then they will take the house with a pool over another.
Of the options you have for landscaping your home, pool landscapes are not the most affordable. However, they add so much value to the home that they are worth it in the long run. Of course, this is difficult for people to think about because when you get a pool and a hot tub, you are typically not thinking about the value they add for when you sell your home, but rather the enjoyment you will get from using them while you live in the house.
When you are considering hiring a landscaper, you should do your research to determine which one has been known to add the most value to homes. You do not just want a big, blank pool with nothing around it and no thought about the design. You should have someone who will tie the pool landscape into the overall design of the house and the patio. Ideally, you would have someone design both your pool and your patio together so that they look like they are in sync.
