Whether you're the type of person who loves to work in the garden or you couldn't despise lawn maintenance more, there are a lot of good reasons to look into improving your front or backyard.
1. Resale Value
Improving the exterior of your home, yard included, is a great way to increase curb appeal. In addition to providing excellent "advertising" for potential buyers who might not otherwise take an interest, stunning landscaping will leave a lasting impression on those mulling over their choices.
2. Privacy and Leisure
Lack of privacy is one of the biggest reasons that people tend to under use their outdoor spaces. Even a small yard can feel more secluded with a fence or some other type of perimeter. Another reason is that there isn't anything in particular to do there! Patios, fire pits, water features, walkways and raised garden beds are all great additions for those looking to enjoy spending time outside.
3. Reduce Utility Costs
Planting trees and shrubs in strategic locations can help to shade your home and any outdoor HVAC equipment. During the summer, this keeps indoor air cooler naturally, putting less strain on conditioning systems. Additionally, by introducing plants that require minimal irrigation you can reduce your water bill while keeping your landscaping green.
