Many properties that buyers find have terribly neglected backyard spaces. Whether filled with dead grass, scattered debris, or a mess of weeds and overgrowth, outdoor spaces often overwhelm renovators. But improving the outside space is just as important as the work you put into the inside space. It’s a potential buyer’s first impression and often a highly anticipated asset of a new home.
As Center Street Leaders examined in Landscaping Can Deliver Huge ROI For Flippers, real Estate developers can significantly increase their ROI through responsible outdoor renovation choices. In fact, a recent study by RealEstate.com suggests that thoughtful landscaping, and adding outdoor perks like seating spaces and fireplaces, can attest to as much as 150% ROI.
Sprucing up the outdoor space requires commitment; but if you’re ready for a few hours of sweaty labor you’ll be rewarded with a charming natural space.
The easiest way to add this charm is through the use of color. Here are a few simple ways to do so.
You don’t have to be a landscape architect to create a colorful garden. Pair eye-catching foliage, such as succulents with strong shapes and luscious (low-maintenance) flowers. Find containers in vibrant yellow, blue, violet, and orange tones to complement the greenery.
