As a homeowner, you want to make sure that the projects you’re completing add value to your home. Whether you’re planning on putting your home on the market relatively soon or you’re simply wanting to add value in the long-run, your lawn is a fantastic place to start. Here in Gainesville, lawns can look incredibly beautiful year round — even during those winter months — which is precisely why now is the perfect time to start investing in your yard. 

In today’s blog, the team at Gainesville Lawnscaping is going to go over a few of the different reasons why landscaping increases your property’s value. Let’s dive in. 

First Impression

While the interior of a property is what people are going to be extremely interested in, the exterior of the home is the first impression that they’ll receive of the property as a whole. If you haven’t invested in your landscaping up until now, chances are that the exterior of your house isn’t looking all that welcoming. When that is the case, people tend to feel like the value of the property is lessened simply because of the way the house is perceived. 

It’s pretty amazing what tasks as simple as cutting the grass and pulling the weeds can do for your yard. So, if you’re looking to make a good first impression upon the arrival of and individual who is visiting your property, start with your landscape. 

Extension of the Home

The yard is an extension of the home. While people, when shopping for homes, may be looking for a particular number of bedrooms and bathrooms, it’s always a nice touch when the lawn is also beautiful. At this point, they can start to envision themselves spending summers with family, grilling on the deck. Or maybe they’re envisioning their puppy’s first fall in the nicely fenced yard. Whatever it may be, the yard is an extension of the home and a place that people are sure to use, which is why investing in it helps to increase the value of your home. 

Already Made Investments

As a homeowner, there are investments that you recognize need to be made in order to maintain your lawn. Whether we’re talking about mulch around the plants or a sprinkler system to keep the lawn green, it’s these types of factors that are recognized by buyers. If there is a high-quality sprinkler system in place, potential buyers will see the value in these investments that have already been made, which ultimately means they have less work to do. Though this does mean you will be spending more money up front, it will increase the value of your home as a whole down the road.
