3 Landscaping Features That Increase the Salability of Your Home

Honeysuckle Nursery & Design Increase Salability of Home

The right landscaping additions can make your home more desirable to buyers.

If you really feel like your yard or garden needs a facelift but you’re concerned about how different landscaping options can affect the salability of your home, then it’s time to figure out which landscaping features will increase your chances of a sale. Even if you’re not planning to sell anytime soon, it is always a good idea to stick with desirable landscaping features that will make it easier to sell if you know you will at some point. With that in mind, there are 3 simple landscaping features that can help your home sell.

Colorful Flowers

Nothing cheers someone up like a colorful and vibrant garden. A smart garden that is visually appealing will add curb appeal and increase the desirability of your home. In addition, any buyers who want a garden will be happy to see much of the work is already done ahead of time so they can just move in and enjoy it. It is important that the garden is well thought out and carefully groomed—most people will want to avoid inheriting a garden that is in desperate need of a complete overhaul or at least some TLC.

To add to this, planting native flowers and plants can be a huge boon to the salability of your home. Native plants grow naturally in your grow zone, so they require very little maintenance and care. A low-maintenance garden will be a big selling point to any buyers who want that beauty without the time investment.

Privacy Hedge

In many cases, a nice wood or vinyl privacy fence will do the job for home salability, but high-end home buyers don’t want to deal with the blocky look of a generic fence—they are looking for properties with privacy hedges. These stunning bushes and dwarf trees are planted around a perimeter to create a natural privacy fence that keeps things looking natural and majestic. Many of these plants are flowering and add a level of visual interest to what would normally be a typical fence line, as well. In some cases, the privacy hedge will surround the property. In others, a fence will surround the property with a privacy hedge either lining the fence or being planted around certain areas such as a pool.

Irrigation System

Lawns are wonderful and amazing and we want them to look their best without spending half of our weekend doing maintenance. Thankfully, automatic irrigation systems are better than ever and can make lawn care incredibly easy. A working, well-maintained irrigation system will increase the salability of your home significantly by promising a beautiful lawn that has systems in place to make it easy to manage. As an added bonus, irrigation systems are good for the environment as they avoid wasted water when used correctly, which can also be a selling point for many home buyers.
