The exterior of the home has become more and more important over the last few years. The exterior, specifically the property’s landscape, has a huge impact on a home’s curb appeal, meaning that a beautiful and feature-filled exterior can improve the value and increase the chances of selling. The following are a few landscape features that buyers are attracted to:
- Outdoor kitchens – People that enjoy entertaining will often have people over during the summer afternoons, but there’s nothing worse than being trapped inside in the kitchen when all your guests are outdoors. An outdoor kitchen helps make things way more convenient.
- Low maintenance turf – People don’t want to spend every day caring for their landscape. Heavy duty grass that doesn’t need much water as well as drought-tolerant plants are big pluses.
- Edible landscapes – There’s something incredibly charming and enjoyable about having fruit-bearing trees and plants on your property. They also add color to the landscape.
- Fire pits – One of the most popular landscape features these days is the fire pit. Fire pits allow you to enjoy your outdoor area even when it’s cooler.
