The concept is simple: add value to your home with landscaping. Think about it. When you are out searching for a new home, curb appeal is usually what draws you in, right?

According to our source, "landscaping is typically associated with lawns, trees, bushes and flowers. But other items can also be considered part of landscaping, such as fire pits, decks, patios, waterfalls, swimming pools and outdoor lighting...all of which could add to the value of the home."

Here are some tips to make sure the landscape of your home is adding to its value:

  • Trim shrubs and bushes and make sure to pull weeds
  • Take care of any large tree root systems that may interfere with your home's foundation
  • Cut back trees that are too close to your house; this can be a fire hazard
  • Look at homes around you and make sure your outdoor maintenance is on par
  • Low maintenance landscaping can be a huge selling point
  • Properly placed landscaping can provide shade and cut energy costs
  • Remove any dead landscaping to make room for new plants
