The top 8 reasons you need a great gardener
Your home is your sanctuary. The same is true for your tenants. Strategic landscaping techniques like clinging vines or privacy hedges are a great way to cut down on outside street noise, remove distractions, and make your outdoor areas feel more tranquil, private and serene. Good placement also adds shade for reduced temps in hot climates – win-win!
Do you have a mid-century ranch home or a more contemporary vibe? Does your rental property have Spanish design details or is it closer to an American Craftsman. A great gardener can give you guidance on how landscaping choices to complement your home’s intrinsic layout and design. This will show your home to it’s best advantage and make your property thrive.
Not only is an unkempt yard unsightly, if left unchecked it can turn into a costly renovation headache. Overgrown trees and bushes can damage rain gutters, siding, and flashing of your house or rental apartment. Regular trimming avoids these potentially costly fixes, keeps your tenants happy, and your investment looking it’s best.
It’s not sexy but it’s important! The removal of excess dried brush will reduce fire hazards, deter pests, and improves sight lines on your property. Besides instantly improving your property value, it’ll reduce upkeep costs over time and make your tenants happy and healthier!
Three Words: Drought. Tolerant. Landscaping. It’s more than just cacti and pebbles (although those can great too!). When designing your Garden, there are a plethora of cost-effective and beautiful options to green your lawn and be kinder to the environment while also drastically reducing your carbon footprint. From slower-growing Zoysia Grass to Granite Sand, there are have been major recent innovations in the drought-tolerant sector of the gardening industry that will reduce your water costs while still enabling providing kids, pets, and fun loving adults large flat surfaces to roam free on without every interacting with a single prickly pear (Yup, that’s a Cactus callback!).
Your home or rental property is an investment. But it’s also part of a neighborhood community that you invest in as well. When you improve the appeal and livability of your home’s exterior, it improves the look of your street which, in turn, increases your neighbors property value. Higher property values for your neighbors ensures the longevity of your community and, because it’s all connected, a greater profit potential for your home or multi-unit investment whenever it’s time to sell. Sure you wait til the last minute to improve your home’s exterior, but if you start planting the seeds now, you not only get the increased benefits of quality of life in the meantime but you also provide a gift to your community and yourself that grows over time.
