Top Landscaping Improvements to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal, Cromwell, Connecticut

Improving your home’s landscape can double its resale value. According to the host of HGTV’s “Curb Appeal,” John Gidding, an investment of $20,000 in landscaping garnered his clients a return on investment (ROI) of more than $200,000 when they sold their home. While returns on landscaping vary widely, a few simple improvements can have a major impact on your home’s curb appeal. If you’re considering selling your property, you may want to invest in a few key upgrades first.

Maintain Your Lawn

A lush, verdant yard certainly captivates onlookers. If you want to make your space look twice as inviting, invest in quality lawn care. Enlisting a landscaping company to fertilize, aerate, weed, and rake your lawn is inexpensive and has an ROI rate of about 303%. Professional lawn maintenance must be repeated annually to maintain results, so keep that in mind if you plan to sell.

Although you might be tempted to perform lawn maintenance yourself, to achieve the best results, it’s best to leave the task to a professional. For example, many considerations go into choosing the appropriate fertilizer for your climate and soil conditions, and balancing the appropriate levels of nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium isn’t always straightforward. A landscaping professional can evaluate your lawn and adopt the best treatment plan for your property.

Incorporate Color & Texture

landscapingAdding a few maples, shrubs, and perennials to your yard can go a long way toward making your property more colorful and visually engaging. Before you start planting, plan a design that highlights your entryway and creates balance on either side of your home. Your landscaping layout should have a focus—for example, a flowerbed next to the front door—and the other elements of your yard should create visual movement around this center. 

Natural edging and boulder accents will also add architectural sophistication to your landscape and create contrast. For an eye-catching front yard that will considerably boost your home’s value, talk to your local landscaping company about incorporating a few basic elements of color, texture, and design.
