Curb Appeal: Why Lawn Care Enhances Your Property Value

You already know that having a lush, green lawn makes you happy. And that alone is worth your investment in lawn care services in Louisville, KY. But did you know that lawn care also increases your property value?

Real estate agents routinely say that homebuyers are drawn to homes with attractive lawns…probably for the same reasons you are. An attractive lawn is not only pleasing to the eye, but it also represents an extension of the home. A great lawn becomes a place for outdoor leisure.

As if you didn’t already have a lot of reasons for lawn care, property value is another big one. 

Let’s dive a bit more into this topic so that you can better understand the connection between property value and lawn care.

A Lush Lawn is a Differentiator

There’s no question that a lush lawn looks better from an aesthetic point of view. When your lawn is healthy and green, it makes the property as a whole look better. 

After all, the lawn is such a significant portion of your yard and is often one of the first things that people see.

Because of that, a lush lawn also sets high expectations for the home and the rest of the property. Some research indicates that an attractive lawn can increase property value by as much as 15 to 20 percent.

Real estate agents say that this is all because of the importance of “first impressions.” It sets a tone that you’re someone who cares about the maintenance and value of their home and property. 

In the real estate world, agents will tell you that buyers make a judgment on your home the minute that they pull up to it. If your yard is a mess, it can be difficult for buyers to overlook that, even if the rest of the house is great.

The fact is, even if you’re not looking to sell your home now (or even in the near future), you still want to maintain your home’s value. Your home is likely your biggest asset and it’s important that you protect its value.

Property Value and Lawn Care Work the “Other Way,” Too

As you might have guessed, as much as a beautiful lawn helps increase property value, a messy lawn will do just the opposite.

That means if your lawn is full of bare spots, is discolored, or is full of weeds, it can really hurt the value of your home.

Promoting a healthier lawn does not have to be an overly complicated endeavor. It’s simply a matter of investing in lawn care services like fertilization and weed control. These services will help prevent some of the property value killers like weeds and bare spots.

You can be sure that if buyers are comparing two homes in your area, and everything else is equal, the lawn might be the differentiating factor. You want yours to be lush, green, and attractive.

Think of Your Investment in Lawn Care as an Investment in Property Value

We know you might have your own personal reasons for lawn care. You like having a lush green lawn where you can spend time with your family and enjoy the outdoors even more.

Another key reason for lawn care is that it will help you increase your property value over time. And as we mentioned, even if you aren’t looking to sell, you want to make sure that you’re maintaining the value of your property over time.

When you look at lawn care as a property value investment, the cost seems minimal. You’re getting back so much more than what you put in both in terms of your own personal enjoyment and in terms of increased property value.

Partnering with a Lawn Care Pro

Getting the best lawn care results boils down to partnering with a great lawn care company. It’s important that you take time to research your options so that you choose a company that’s going to be able to deliver the best.

While it can be a lot of work on the front end, when you research your options, you really do wind up saving yourself time and aggravation on the back end. If you end up with a company that you aren’t happy with, you end up back to the drawing board and have to go through the decision-making process all over again. 

You also risk hurting your property value during that time.
