Whether you just moved in or have been in the same place for a few decades, a little exterior upkeep is essential to your home’s curb appeal. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of tips to upgrade your home’s exteriors, but only a few of them will actually cause a rise in home value. Consider these three simple landscaping changes you can make to boost the value of your own home!
Easy Outdoor Upgrades For Your New Home
Integrate local plants to make a hummingbird, butterfly or honeybee habitat. Certification as a backyard habitat can increase the value of your home and make it more appealing for families of young children if you’re ever inclined to sell.
Establish a lawn care program. Relocating from a condo or apartment without rolling green lawns to care for takes some getting used to. Start with a simple schedule that will keep your home’s landscaped areas neat and tidy.
Stone walkways are a smart way to bolster your landscaping. Reclaimed concrete, bricks, or natural stones can make a common pathway into something far more creative and engaging than a simple paved path.
