April 10, 2015 | STORY BY GEORGETTE MCCULLOCH

Adding To Your Property Value

A professionally designed, manicured and maintained lawn and garden will always increase the value of your home, according to Landscape Ontario.

A beautiful landscape enhances your curb appeal and your neigbours will appreciate your investment, as it helps make the entire street desirable.

According to Landscape Ontario, the benefits of a professional landscape include:
 
  • Adding as much as 14 per cent to the resale value of a building and speeding up its sale by as much as six weeks.
  • Lowering home heating and cooling costs by as much as 20 per cent by properly picking and placing trees and plants.
  • Making an air conditioner more efficient by shading the appliance with trees.
  • Placing an appraisal value on mature trees of between $1,000 and $10,000.

A professional landscape has its benefits. Check out our landscaping ideas and photos to inspire your new lawn.
