3 Great Small and Large Landscaping Projects to Try This Summer

crushed concreteIf you’re not regularly looking for ways to improve your home’s landscape, you’re not doing your property justice. You don’t even need to shell out a significant amount of money in hopes of improving your outdoor environment, either. You can do all sorts of small projects that will give your property a terrific boost in appearance and resale value.

Even spending as little as 5% of your home’s value on landscaping improvements can yield a return on investment (ROI) of as much as 150%. From small outdoor tasks to major landscaping projects, here are some things you should consider doing this summer to improve the look and feel of your home’s exterior landscape:

  • Swimming pools — Though you might have to spend a large amount of money to have a pool installed on your property, not to mention maintenance and upkeep, having a pool will certainly give your property a major visual boost as well as an increase in overall value.
  • Garden — You can have a small garden next to a patio or a gigantic one covering a large percentage of your property — either way, it’s going to look great and give your home’s value a boost. Make sure you’re taking care of your garden, however, and are using the right kind of crushed shell as nutrients.
  • Hardscape features — Having crushed concrete placed down throughout your yard can look great if you’re doing it correctly. Just scattering a landscape supply across the lawn won’t be that visually appealing, but if you are carefully outlining any hardscapes with crushed concrete, your property is going to look terrific. These outdoor features will also provide a much greater resale value on your home should you ever decide to sell.

From having stone pathways on your lawn to a nice garden or pool, these projects can be great for property appearance and value increases.
