Regardless of whether you are planning to sell your home in the near future or not, increasing its value is desirable both for you and your community.
A well-planned, and well-executed residential landscape design adds up to 20% to your home’s value!
Here are 3 ways how:
- Curb-appeal: Adding light to any outdoor space enhances its beauty. This applies especially to the landscape of your house. By highlighting your lawn, the walkway, and any other aesthetics, you make your house more pleasing to the eye, and in the process, increase its market value. Professionally installed, subtle lighting can even make the space appear larger.
- Safety and security: Intruders work in the dark. Luminescent outdoors is an effective way of keeping them at bay. It gives the owner a sense of authority over the events taking place in his or her own house, which is one of the primary reasons, why both lighting professionals and real estate agents recommend landscape lighting. Also, lighting your path can easily prevent falls.
- Cozy feel: Whether you are planning to sell the house or stay in it for a long time, you want to make it feel like home. Proper lighting, and cozy additions like a fire pit, can be just the things you need.
Keep in mind, faulty landscape lighting wiring, or poorly planned planting can cause damage rather than add value. Prior to making any changes or additions yourself, be sure to consult with a professional.
