Curb appeal is important when selling a home, and high-quality landscaping is one way to boost a property’s value. Establishing a raised bed garden, an herb garden, or a compost heap can make things easier for new buyers. Another option is having mature trees, which a USDA study claims can increase a home’s value by 10 percent. Pruning trees and shrubs and planting flowers also will boost curb appeal. A gardening storage area, such as a potting shed, will have appeal for many homebuyers. Last, don’t forget indoors, where houseplants can breathe life into a room.
- Raised bed gardens and herb gardens are both challenging to start, so developing them will add value for buyers.
- According to the USDA, mature trees can boost a property’s value by 10 percent.
