Plant Quality Trees
Trees are one of the few things that will appreciate in value over time. According to the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers (CTLA), a mature tree can add $1,000 to $10,000 to the value of your property!
Considering you can purchase a sapling for as little as $10 at a nursery or retailer, that’s an awesome ROI (return on investment).
Create a Living Space Outdoors
Fire pits and permeable paving are right after low-maintenance landscaping on the American Society of Landscape Architects’ (ASLA) top 10 list of the outdoor elements homeowners desire.
Adding outdoor features like kitchens, grilling stations, patios and water features add to the comfort of being outdoors. When you can expand your living area from indoors to include the outdoors, you’re gaining more value per square foot of your property.
