Approximately 83% of Americans believe that having a yard is important and 90% of those with yards think it’s just as important to keep it well-maintained.
Unfortunately, so many U.S. homeowners neglect their front and back yards — even those with otherwise beautiful landscapes. That’s why it’s so important for property owners to constantly tend to their yard. Keeping your lawn clean and healthy is obviously essential, but there are plenty of landscape improvements that you can do to give its look a major boost and even increase its property value.
Here are some things you can do around your home to significantly boost your landscape’s appearance and its value:
- Build an awesome treehouse for the kids — Think back to your childhood, if you didn’t have a treehouse in your backyard, you probably wanted one so badly. It’s too late for your own childhood, but your kids will still be able to make plenty of amazing memories inside a treehouse of their own. Constructing even the most aesthetically pleasing and complicated treehouse doesn’t even have to break your bank, either. As long as you know what you’re doing, you can build a wonderful treehouse using affordable materials.
- Have bark dust spread across your lawn — There are bark blowing services that can spread high-quality bark dust across your landscape, providing an outstanding visual appearance. Don’t just purchase this landscaping material and randomly place it across your lawn, however. It’s best to work with professional bark blowers who know exactly what they’re doing.
- Completely revamp your shed — If your shed has been sitting on your lawn for decades, not doing anything other than taking up space and storing a few items, you might want to either get rid of it or redecorate. You can easily transform a basic backyard shed into a creative and great-looking area in just a day or two. Get some nice fabrics, toss in a few furniture items, and start redecorating.
