When you drive by a home with a beautiful lawn it creates a vision in your mind of a beautiful home, this is why lawn care can actually increase your property value. Landscaping, garden ornaments, or even just nice mowed green grass are all a part of property value and if you’re thinking of selling your home, it’s time to get the garden in tip top shape.
A garden that is full of weeds, overgrown shrubs, and even messy with items laying about says something about how you care for your home. In fact, it can drop your property value by thousands.
Caring for the landscaping and garden isn’t difficult and of course, you can hire it out so it’s done by a professional. But if that’s not in your budget, you’ll need to find a way to keep it simple and do it with the time that you have. Look at reducing the hours you need to keep your garden looking good, then keep it neat and store items out of the way.
If you have a lot of landscaping or a complicated grass and garden area it’s going to take more time to care for it. If you’re short on time, then simplify the area. Instead of having to spend hours weeding or hours trimming shrubs, think about reducing the areas that need this type of upkeep.
A really green and well cared for lawn can say just as much as one full of landscaping. So don’t think you have to have a bunch of ornamental shrubs about to increase the value of your home. While they do help, if they’re not kept up, they won’t help at all.
This may mean moving the shrubs and reducing the time needed to mow and weed your garden. Mowing doesn’t take a lot of time, and neither does applying the right fertilizer. In this way you can cut down the time needed to keep it looking good, and still have a beautiful asset for your home.
Basically, it’s all about the overall look. If you can’t afford the time to care for a complicated garden, then reduce the amount of landscaping and look to having beautiful green grass instead. Remember, your yard is the first impression people get about how you care for your home, and when it comes to selling it, it can increase the value of your home by quite a bit.
