Most home sellers understand the importance of curb appeal when listing a home. This is particularly true with subdivisions where homes need to stand out from the crowd.

Landscaping is a big part of curb appeal and can have a big impact on price. Researchers at Virginia Tech found that a home with little or no landscaping could produce an additional 5% – 15% by making landscaping improvements.

The biggest landscape factors that impact home value are design sophistication, plant size, and plant diversity.

Experts advise to start with a clear plan before you begin making improvements and recommend working with a landscape professional to get the look buyers want.
