How can we add value to our yard?
Well, the good news is you don't have to add a waterfall pool to increase the value of your yard. It's all about making small changes with big impact:
Maintain it. A yard with a patchy yellow grass and weeds screams, "These owners don't give a crap!" Mow your lawn regularly and talk to a pro at your local nursery about products that will make your grass and other greenery look brighter and healthier.
Landscape it well. Beautiful trees and shrubs will enhance your terrace, roof garden, balcony, or yard and have been proven to add dollars to your overall home value. Plant perennials (start with the front of your house, since that's what people see first).
Do some visual editing. Sure, you have a historic 20-foot-tall yew bush, but that doesn't mean it should stay. Think of it like your decor -- you've got to clear out the clutter to make your new additions (read: flowers and shrubs) stand out.
Add fun accessories. Always wanted a chic lounge set? Look at your budget and assess what upgrades you can make that won't just be eye-catching, but will increase your quality of life too.
