Adding Value To Your Home With
Author: Nick Leonard

When most people think about increasing the value of
their home the first thing that comes to mind is
interior renovations. Things like new carpeting,
kitchen cabinets, or new appliances, but an often
overlooked way to make your house value go up is to
landscape the yard.

With just a little effort you can drastically change
the entire appearance of the outside of your home.
Some shrubs along the outside of the house will give
it an entirely different look, and a stone walkway is
something even a landscape novice should be able to do
themselves with a little instruction.

If your ready to make some major change how about a
back yard patio with a brick barbeque pit. This is
great for entertaining and would be a major selling
point when it comes time to sell the home.

Decorative landscape also gives your home a unique
quality that isn’t found very often. Things like
garden statues, water fountains, pedestal bird baths,
and stone figures can be picked up at most garden
centers and make your yard really stand out.

One of the best places to find one of a kind pieces is
second hand stores and garage sales. Old items such a
copper tubs or wooden benches that many would consider
junk are very popular right now, and many places that
specialize in such item are charging hundreds or even
thousands for these things but if you’re a bargain
hunter and keep an eye out you can find some great

While you can easily spend thousands of dollars
landscaping your home you don’t necessarily have to.
In fact if your willing to do the work yourself a
couple hundred dollars on plants and some garden
decorations are really all you need to increases the
value of you home by up to 2%-7% .

The author has been involved in landscaping since he
was sixteen, and has recently put up a website which is all about landscaping.
