The first impression of your home makes a substantial impact on potential buyers. Curb appeal is what attracts, what gets their attention. A home could have a fabulous interior, but realtors still have to get prospective buyers through the front door.

Want to know the best way to increase your property value and improve your curb appeal? Landscaping. The American Nursery and Landscape Association (ANLA) offers a variety of statistics from different studies conducted into the benefits of adding landscaping. According to the Gallup Organization, it “can add between 7% and 15% to a home’s value.” It’s also the only home improvement that will bring a 100% or more recovery value at selling time, as stated by Money Magazine.

Not looking to sell your home anytime soon? Drawing from various studies, the ANLA offers other benefits of landscaping. If used to shade the home, it can reduce air conditioning costs by up to 50%, and “trees can reduce bothersome noise by up to 50%.”
