How to Make Your Lawn Add to Your Home’s Value

A Lawn Being MowedYou have a wide lawn that’s going to waste. Nothing but grass growing in all directions and bugs calling the place home. Did you know that the condition of your lawn has a huge effect on the value of your property? Not only is it bad for your home’s value, but it may also be affecting the property values in your neighborhood, and your neighbors are not likely to be pleased.

Specialists from Utah Sprinkler offer some ideas to make use of your lawn and prevent it from making your home look like a dump.

Clean It

You probably keep the inside of your home pretty neat and orderly; you should do the same for your lawn. Remove whatever clutter is out there, such as that old bicycle and those car parts dripping oil (bad for the environment). Take them to a recycle center. Collect the leaves and whatever else is on your lawn in a plastic bag for the trash collectors. Schedule this for a weekend so you have time to finish. Leaving it half undone may make you procrastinate and you’ll be back to square one.

Plant Something

If it’s the backyard, think about planting vegetables. If it’s the front, consider landscaping. You can do this yourself as a form of exercise or as a new hobby (you might love it), or hire a landscape artist. You might be surprised how beautiful your property can look when the lawn starts popping with color. To make sure your plants are always watered, have a professional install a sprinkler and have such on a timer.

Install a Water Feature

One way to make it more interesting is to install a fountain or other water features. The cool water and the sound it makes can also provide a relaxing feature for those mornings or afternoons when you’re out to enjoy your new lawn.

Rebuild Your Shed

Now that you have a lawn to take care of, you have an excuse to rebuild that shed, where you can keep your gardening implements. You might even want to put a chair and a small table there for your afternoon tea or getting some work done on your laptop. Imagine working with that cool ambiance.

Would you rather have a beautiful, colorful garden that makes your home’s value rise, or an empty, dusty lawn that’s only good news for spiders? Work on your lawn right now and enjoy the many benefits.
