The ROI of a Quality Landscape Design
Your home's landscape offers health and environmental benefits and enhance your community when it is properly planned and installed. This can also lead to an increase in property value. Some experts claim that landscaping can yield the highest Return on Investment (ROI) of any home upgrade if you are looking to sell.
A 2017 study at Colorado State University* found that for every dollar invested in a residential landscape, the average return is 135%. A high-quality landscape can increase the value of a home as much as 10%!
Other research has shown,
- Rental rates are 7 % higher for commercial offices that have a high quality landscape.
- Large street trees add a 3% to 15% value to a home and continue to appreciate in value over time.
- A mature tree can often have an appraised value between $1,000 and $10,000 according to the Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers.
While trees, especially mature ones often offer the best bang for your buck, features like an outdoor living space and LED landscape lighting add great value! Use these cold winter days to contact one of our landscape designers to boost your homes curb appeal this year.
