What Landscaping Does to Your Property Value
Surprise! It’s Not Always About Money
Like it or not, first impressions count when you’re selling your home. Often the visual appeal of a property is an immediate indicator to a prospective buyer on just how well the current owner has performed upkeep of the home.
A property that has a well landscaped exterior is more attractive to buyers than a dwelling that has little to no landscaping performed, and it’s the details that count when it comes to adding value.
Perhaps it’s the well manicured and maintained lawn, maybe it’s the beautiful paving that leads the eye from driveway to the front door, or the immaculately presented garden full of native flora.
Whatever it is that raises an eyebrow, that’s the golden opportunity you can’t afford to miss.
But how can you make sure you’re putting your best foot forward?
Plan Your Landscape
One of the biggest mistakes when landscaping your property is doing a little here, a little there, and trying to make sense of it all together without a solid plan.
Planning where your garden beds lay and your paths lead, the mixture of shrubs you use or where trees are located, and how your structures fit in with your design means the difference between a well assembled landscape and a garden that’s disorganised and hard to understand.
Keeping it Looking its Best
Another great way to assure your property value is to keep your landscape well maintained. Yes, mowing your lawn regularly, edging your paths, and trimming your trees are important for you to do, but so is the upkeep of the major features of your landscape.
Retaining walls need fine tuning, forgotten water features removed, and cracked paths repaired. Maybe it’s time to refresh the entire look.
Plant a Garden for Year Round Splendour
Situating new plants in your garden is exciting. The promise of a beautiful display in just a few short months, blooms providing a pop of colour to a lush green backdrop. But once the season has passed you can be left with a drab affair.
By making great choices for plants in your landscape you can make sure your garden is putting on a show no matter the time of year.
Hiring a professional landscaper is a great way to get started with the expertise they bring to your outdoor projects to help you realise your dream. They’ll help you take another look at your property and decide what will keep it looking its very best.
We recently used Outdoor Edge Landscapes to transform the front and backyard of our new home.
Zach was very approachable and flexible in working out the final design and produced a fantastic outdoor entertaining area our family will enjoy for years to come and all at a very reasonable price and would highly recommend Outdoor Edge Landscapes to anyone.
Outdoor Edge Landscapes converted my tired and dated property into a fresh and modern living space that I’m proud to come home to. Their quality of work stood out to me, and Zach was great to deal with, happily answering all my questions and offering helpful advice.
I can confidently recommend Outdoor Edge Landscapes to those wanting to improve their home.
From the beginning to end of our project I found Zach, Nate, and Jay so accommodating to work with. I already had a plan and we were able to go ahead with the project with a clear goal in mind.
If anything required tweaking Zach was clear and concise in his communication and was never too busy to take the time to explain every step upon the way. The team worked so hard and sometimes in very trying conditions.
Ours was a rather large project and we could not fault a single thing. I happily recommend Zach and his competent team to anybody in need of a high standard of work.
From the moment Zach came to my home to do a quote for landscaping, all the way through to finalisation of the job, the Outdoor Edge Landscaping team were nothing short of outstanding.
I cannot thank the team at Outdoor Edge Landscaping enough for giving me the garden I always wanted. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with them – nothing was ever too much trouble and their work was to the highest of standards – from the brickwork all the way through to my new letterbox! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a landscaper and will be forever grateful for their hard and exacting work.
If you are looking for a landscaper and want a team of people who take a lot of pride in what they do, you cannot go past Outdoor Edge Landscaping.
We were very impressed with Zach and the Team right from the start. Always on time, nothing was too much trouble and really friendly – which I believe is important to create the perfect space.
They have transformed our high maintenance front lawn and struggling shrubs into wonderful low maintenance lawns, gorgeous garden beds surrounded by perfect paving and feature pots.
It is now an absolute pleasure to sit out the front of our house, enjoy the scenery and just relax.
We would highly recommend Outdoor Edge Landscapes.
I think we have quite a few jealous neighbours!
My wife and I recently used Outdoor Edge Landscaping shortly after we built our new home to landscape the back and sides of our block.
From the beginning, we found Zach very easy to speak with. He was flexible & honest in helping us work through our design ideas and prompt in getting back to us with his quote. All work was completed in a timely manner and we were kept informed along the way of the progress.
Zach and his team delivered a high quality finished product that was exactly what we were after, and it has added lots of value to our home. We would certainly recommend Outdoor Edge Landscapes to others and will be having them back to do our front yard too.
Outdoor Edge Landscapes is a superbly professional team of experts who handled every aspect of our job with precision and brilliance. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
