Your home is one of the your largest and most important investments. The appearance of your landscape is a significant part of the impression your home gives. Well-tended, thoughtful landscaping tells others you care about your surroundings, and have probably taken care of the rest of your property.
Studies show, a MONEY magazine article writes, "that a well-designed landscape can add 10-20% to your home's market value. In addition, homeowners should spend about 10% of their home's value on landscape improvements." You don't want to short-change your property by overlooking details like your outdoor improvements.
