If you’re thinking about embarking on a major landscaping project this spring, it could pay off in more ways than you think. Having your own personal outdoor oasis can enhance your quality of life at home, especially in the summer months. In addition to your own personal enjoyment, professional landscape design and installation can also have a good monetary return on investment. Lawn ‘N’ Order in Winnipeg shares some landscaping projects that can boost resale value:
Install a deck, patio or fire pit area to make an outdoor living space.
When the harsh Manitoba winter finally ends, everyone wants to spend more time outside! Having a functional outdoor living space in your yard will give your family a place to socialize, dine, relax and entertain guests. Not only will you love your new outdoor space, potential buyers will be attracted to it too if you ever decide to sell your home.
Lawn ‘N’ Order can help you design the perfect outdoor living space. Whether it’s an interlocking-stone patio with attractive retaining walls and planters, a rustic fire pit area or a new deck addition for barbequing and sitting in the sun, this landscaping upgrade will be well worth the investment.
Maintain mature trees or plant some new ones.
If you have mature trees on your property, it’s a good idea to keep them as long as they aren’t posing a safety hazard. The Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers have reported that mature trees can boost a property’s value from $1,100 to $10,000.
Why are trees so valuable? People love the way mature trees look and they offer natural privacy. They produce shade in the summer and can reduce your cooling bills. They can also protect your home from bad weather and wind in the winter, improving energy efficiency then too. Plus, trees help create better air quality around your home by absorbing carbon dioxide and letting off oxygen.
If you don’t have any trees, this season is a great time to plant a few in your yard. Lawn ‘N’ Order can include some trees in your landscape design that will thrive in your climate zone and bring that return on investment. Spend less for a younger tree and wait for it to grow or spend a little more on a larger tree. Either way, new trees will look fantastic in your front and backyard. Learn how to plant a tree.
Keep your lawn healthy, green and lush.
If you have dead patches in your lawn and weeds are totally taking over, you are diminishing your curb appeal. If you can’t commit the time to properly care for your lawn, including watering, mowing, fertilizing, seeding and a proper spring and fall clean up, consider hiring the professional maintenance services from Lawn ‘N’ Order. Not only can they care for your lawn on a weekly schedule, they can also do spring and fall clean ups as well as tree care and removal.
If you’re planning on selling your home this summer or in the fall, make sure your home is standing out on the market with an impeccable lawn and beautiful yard.
