Invest in professional landscaping


With the warm summer months finally here, many homeowners are looking to refresh the look of their home through simple, do-it-yourself renovations. While doing a "quick fix" to your home and garden might seem like the easy route, investing in professional landscaping, aside from being aesthetically pleasing, will not only increase the value of your home, but provide you with additional benefits.

A professionally designed and manicured lawn and garden that are well kept and maintained will enhance the curb appeal of your home, endearing you to your neighbours, beautifying the look of your street and enhancing the value of your home. Your yard is the first impression people will have of your home. Make it a good one

Embarking on a landscaping project can provide you with an extremely satisfying return on investment and its benefits including how:
  • Landscaping can add as much as 14% to the resale value of a building and speed its sale by as much as six weeks;
  • Properly selected and placed trees and plants can lower home heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%;
  • Tree shading an air conditioner can increase its efficiency by 10%; and
  • A mature tree can often have an appraised value of between $1,000 and $10,000.
