Adding Value To Your Home With Landscaping

by: Nick Leonard
When most people think about increasing the value of their home the first thing that comes to mind is interior renovations. Things like new carpeting, kitchen cabinets, or new appliances, but an often overlooked way to make your house value go up is to landscape the yard.

With just a little effort you can drastically change the entire appearance of the outside of your home. Some shrubs along the outside of the house will give it an entirely different look, and a stone walkway is something even a landscape novice should be able to do themselves with a little instruction.

If your ready to make some major change how about a back yard patio with a brick barbeque pit. This is great for entertaining and would be a major selling point when it comes time to sell the home.

Decorative landscape also gives your home a unique quality that isnít found very often. Things like garden statues, water fountains, pedestal bird baths, and stone figures can be picked up at most garden centers and make your yard really stand out.

One of the best places to find one of a kind pieces is second hand stores and garage sales. Old items such a copper tubs or wooden benches that many would consider junk are very popular right now, and many places that specialize in such item are charging hundreds or even thousands for these things but if youíre a bargain hunter and keep an eye out you can find some great deals.

While you can easily spend thousands of dollars landscaping your home you donít necessarily have to. In fact if your willing to do the work yourself a couple hundred dollars on plants and some garden decorations are really all you need to increases the value of you home by up to 2%-7% .
