It takes some planning, but having mature trees on your property increases the value of your home by between 7 and 19 percent, so says a series of recent nationwide surveys commissioned by the National Association of Realtors. The survey reported that having mature trees in a well-landscaped yard pays off sizable benefits when it comes time to sell your home. Mature trees add the classic curb appeal factor to homes in a big way.
Often, when people have some extra money to invest into their homes, they think of their kitchens or bathrooms. But the results of these surveys may make homeowners reconsider where they want to place their home improvement dollars. Getting their yards up-to-grade may be the best place for their investment.
But getting a yard with mature trees doesn’t happen overnight – it doesn’t even happen ‘over year’. Since it takes approximately 5 to 7 years for trees to mature, this takes some planning from the homeowner point of view. Or, if your property already has mature trees, it may take some time to ‘reconfigure’ these trees – trimming, fertilizing, strengthening, resetting with a new surrounding.
Planning ahead for your yard is a key at this point. What kind of trees would you like to plant? Which of your current trees can be re-purposed or redesigned into your overall landscaping plan? Would you like primarily evergreen trees, deciduous, or a mix?
This is where tapping into the expertise of an expert or team of experts may be of great assistance. Ryan Lawn & Tree has years of experience helping people design and redesign their yards – around new trees, new landscaping, or both.
