Curb appeal is crucial for the value of your home, and who doesn’t like to come home to an oasis? In fact, the National Association of Realtors features an article that states that curb appeal is a top priority in increasing your home’s value. Consider the following easy solutions to instantly improve the look of your landscape:
Plant a Tree
A tree is a value powerhouse. If you’re interested in boosting your home’s value, a tree is an essential step. Consider planting a hardy shade tree or two near the center of your lawn or landscape, or plant valuable fruit trees throughout your landscape. Remember to avoid planting trees near your home’s foundation, as your trees roots may eventually damage buried concrete!
Plant Perennial Grasses
Perennial grasses are inexpensive, hardy, easy to maintain, and beautiful. Most grasses come as a neatly contained circle, and they tend to maintain that shape throughout their lifetime. Perennial grasses can last for decades, and can be planted in a myriad of shapes throughout your landscape.
Use Edging to Separate Mulch, Rocks, and Your Lawn
Edging keeps your landscaping pristine. Properly installed edging will keep grass from creeping into your mulch and rock landscapes.
Flowers make a landscape pop! Consider planting hardy perennial flowers if you’d like to maintain a landscape of flowers throughout the years. Or plant annuals if you’re looking to boost the value of your home immediately!Remember to call on our garden centre if you’re considering adding to your landscape!
